In this episode, Nikki and Janet talk with Pilates teacher Carrie Russo about working with different populations using the authentic Pilates method as a framework.

They cover:

  • Carrie’s experience coming back to Pilates after abdominal surgery and how it’s informed her current teaching practice
  • Myths about Classical Pilates (e.g. no modifications, always pointed toes, ect)
  • Examples of how to work with special populations while still staying in the “Classical Pilates box”
  • Similarities of the approaches between Classical and Contemporary Pilates
  • Elements of what makes a good instructor

About Carrie Russo

Carrie first began studying Pilates as part of her curriculum as a dance minor.  Years later she decided to pursue teaching Pilates as a career. After a rigorous year and a half long program, she earned her certification from the prestigious Romana’s Pilates in 2005.  While in training, Carrie studied under the direct tutelage of Romana Kryzanowska.  She continues to study with the Master Teachers of Romana’s Pilates to ensure she is always challenging herself and growing, both as a practitioner and a teacher. Carrie’s unique style of teaching combines her expert knowledge of the craft and genuine enthusiasm for helping people transform their bodies.  Her clients will tell you that although she can be tough, there is guaranteed laughter to be had in every session.  She takes to heart what Romana always said, “If you’re not having fun, then what’s the point?”

Carrie is a sought after instructor and teaches workshops for both teachers and Pilates enthusiasts.  She takes great joy in sharing her knowledge and passion for Pilates. To learn more about Carrie, visit her website or say hello on Instagram
