Carol Robbins - bio

I've been teaching movement full time since 2000. I've taught private sessions, group sessions, and workshops from two hours to two days long to 1000s of people over the past quarter century.

I had already been a student of Pilates for five years when I went through a certification (two year course). My first certification was with Stott Pilates. That was the first of three trainings I did in total for Pilates including with Dianne Miller of Vancouver.

I was running a fully equipped Pilates studio when I discovered Katy Bowman, biomechanist and founder of Nutritious MovementĀ®. After certifying as a Restorative Exercise Specialist in 2013, I sold my Pilates studio and started a new career teaching "RE."

I've attended live trainings with Katy in California, Washington State, and in Europe. I acted as a staff teacher for the organisation during certifications, mentored dozens of students for two years,  and assisted Katy in public workshops such as Dynamic Aging and Move Your DNA at Kripalu. Katy closed the certification in 2018 but continues to mentor her teachers.

Other trainings: Roll Model Method / Yoga Tune UpĀ®, 300 hour Yoga Teacher certificate Heart&Bones, MovNat Level 1 (at the age of 59 ), Integrated Kinetic Neurology (Level 1), Gary Ward (AiM), Irene Dowd. I'm currently studying with Ryan Foley DPT.

I am trained to teach the Dynamic Aging series and am one of around 20 teachers worldwide certified to teach two-day Move Your DNA workshops. I live in the beaches part of Toronto with my three cats and husband and have two adult children.
