Karen Westhelle started her classical ballet training at an early age. After majoring in dance at college, she studied modern dance at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance as a trainee student, simultaneously teaching both classical and contemporary ballet to others, a practice she still occasionally enjoys today. In 2006, Karen began studying Pilates and soon after was accepted into the Romana Krysanowska’s True Pilates Certification Program. She was very impressed at how Pilates changed her body and helped individuals in a profound way with their physical ailments. In 2018 Karen completed the Pink Ribbon Porgram aimed to enhance the recovery for breast cancer patients. Learning Pilates was a life-changing process for Karen, who revels in her work at Equilibrium helping others change their lives through the power of Pilates.
