I have been a student of Karine for almost a year and I have to say she is an absolutely fabulous Pilates instructor. I have attended private sessions and classes. What sets Karine apart is her contagious energy and unique ability to connect with her students. She pushes her students to get the maximum they can out of their workout with a fun and positive approach. I always look forward to our sessions and hope to be a student of hers for years to come.


Karine has a unique ability to make working out fun! As her Pilates student for the past year, I have seen her tailor programs to ensure that all participants are challenged, are able to keep up and feel like they belong there. She recognizes that fun and laughter are integral parts of fitness and that the way to encourage people to meet their fitness objectives is for them to enjoy it. My Pilates practice has improved dramatically with Karine and I finally look forward to my workouts


I’ve experienced a lot of different instructor styles, but definitely rank Karine’s in the top best! I love how comforting she makes each workout while ensuring that it remains challenging. I’ve taken her Pilates, foam rolling and spin classes and have seen her interactions with everyone in the room infused with positivity and helpful knowledge. She carries a wealth of experience and knowledge that make her a gifted instructor, but also a great companion on your health and fitness journey with her. Have a great time getting to know her as she works with you. I know I have and definitely miss her as she helps others hundreds of miles from me


I was so sad when Karen moved back to Canada and left the SF Bay Area. Karen is a great trainer. I’ve watched her over the years learn and grow and blossom into an excellent trainer with Pilates and Fitness. I first met Karen when she came to my Pilates studio to observe classes, and then participate in classes and work with me privately when she had a knee injury. There is nothing that will make one a great trainer like learning to recover from your own injury. Anyone working with Karen will be lucky to have her as their trainer.



Karine is a fantastic spin instructor and personal trainer. She introduced me to the wonders of foam rolling and taught me how to workout properly and safely while still challenging myself. Years later, I’m still practicing what she taught me. She has a positive, friendly attitude and makes everyone feel welcome and motivated in her classes!

Karen is a great instructor and personal trainer. She’s a good motivator and exceptionally perceptive about individual needs and abilities. I wish she had not left my area – I’d definitely be using her service


Karine is an awesome trainer & instructor. I’ve taken her Pilates & foam rolling classes which were super helpful & I still use what she taught me in those sessions on my own go until this day. She’s very knowledgeable & down to earth. I highly recommend her!


I met Karine in her Spin class. Her energy was contagious and I learned so much about my body when I took her foam rolling class afterwards. Recently, I was coached by Karen on how to incorporate a more plant based diet. Even though I live in Texas, I was able to connect with her remotely. After our session I felt more empowered to make some changes. She made it so easy and it did not feel intimidating. She educates and empowers you in her classes and in the coaching.


This woman is a wonderful trainer!!! She’s able to get me to do things I’d never thought I could do!
