Natural Awakenings Practitioner Profile: Meet Karina Klein
About you: I’m from Mexico City. I graduated from Core Pilates NYC 600-hour comprehensive program in 2013. I love teaching both private and group classes. Pilates is a lifestyle—you do it so you can do everything else in life that you enjoy.
Professional background: I’ve been practicing and teaching for over 13 years.
Certifications: Power Pilates NYC mat certification, Core Pilates NYC 600-hour program, courses in PT Pilates, TRX training, Barre training, AFAA group fitness instructor certification.
About your practice: I was trained in the classical Pilates system, which was designed to stretch and strengthen, connecting mind and body. I teach mostly private sessions, mainly in Long Island, but I love New York City and want to explore more of it. I also teach fitness classes in East Northport, where I live.
Benefits of your practice: A stronger, longer leaner body, a mind-body connection, better internal organ function. A happier life.
Life’s mission: I truly believe I’m doing what I was meant to do—that is, to help people feel good in their own body, getting stronger and more confident from the inside out. Movement is what I use to meet and communicate with people. My clients are my inspiration. Their trust in me makes me want to get better and better at what do.
Favorite quote: “Movement is my therapy.”
