I'M WATCHING YOUR EVERY MOVE!
I don’t mean that it in a creepy, stalkerish way. But the thing that separates this program from most others is that I am right there, demonstrating proper form, then popping up close to watch your form and make gentle corrections so you’re sure you are doing the exercises correctly.
Even better...your registration gives you FREE access to my online program with professional videos and an app, so you can take me anywhere. Valued at $147, you get it for free, now that's REALLY priceless!
YOU'RE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!
It’s hard to make time for exercise when that Netflix show is calling your name (or that sink full of dishes or those adorable but needy kids, or that big beautiful bed and early bedtime) BUT knowing that we are meeting means you already have a chunk of time carved out in your day. Plus, I’m kind of funny and entertaining so it’s a little like watching a Netflix show….but I don’t do dishes or babysit, lol!
YOU HAVE A BUILT IN CHEERING SECTION!
Nothing beats the support that emanates from a group of women in similar circumstances, rooting for one another. And I’ll be your biggest cheerleader! I used these same programs during my pregnancies and recoveries so I KNOW they work, which makes joining you on this journey so exciting for me! Ra, ra, sis boom bah!!!!
It’ll be like meeting a girlfriend for coffee, but this “girlfriend” (AKA Me!) is a vagina expert with no filter who knows all the secrets you need to learn to keep your lady bits intact so you emerge on the other side unscathed. Plus the exercises we do will be, dare I say, fun?!!!
Do you know what I wished you learned in your 6-week postpartum visit with your medical provider? How much time do you have? You should be learning AT THE VERY MINIMUM: How to do a Kegel properly, how to find time for a few quality exercises to help your body recover while you’re trapped under a newborn, how to do things like change diapers and bathe your baby using your core to protect your back, how to return to sex (I’m talking a step-by-step instruction manual including positions, lubes, what to do if you’re feeling RESENTMENT that your partner’s body has not changed, argh!) As much as I would love for you to pack ME away in your diaper bag for these 6-week visits, I’m happy to POP out during these classes to hold your hand and show you the way!
Repeat after me: “Your body is not a TEAR DOWN”. It’s a Fixer Upper. And I’m your general contractor! But not the kind that starts a project and leaves you hanging or doesn’t return your calls. I’m right there beside you the entire 6 weeks until your inner core has been completely remodeled!
"I would say I was really nervous to jump back into fitness classes after having been away from group fitness for more than 5 years, but your classes are so welcoming to every skill level that I have never felt judged. The online group classes are even easier to feel less self conscious since you are in the comfort of your own home."
"Carrie takes great care in what she does, even on video, she maintained her stellar level of care and professionalism. She was sure to check the form of every exercise and answer any question. I thoroughly enjoyed the class & time with Carrie. I saw immediate results that have proven to be lasting, even since the class ended."
Does any of this sound familiar?
I'm scared to workout at home!
Carrie is watching every move you make and can guide you safely through adjustments and modifications!
My back, hips, or legs hurt! I'm too pregnant for this.
Carrie is an expertly trained Prenatal/Postnatal Pilates instructor and Core Expert, and she can modify every move to relieve your pain and increase your strength!
I'm exercising and seeing NO results!
Have you been working your butt off in the gym but still feel like you have a “mommy belly” or aren’t getting the results you want? Let Carrie teach you why you might need to take a step back before you can take a few steps forward!
I actually like the virtual classes more! Like working out in front of a mirror- I can check in on my posture and make tweaks I wouldn’t normally feel if we were in the classroom. Carrie is just as attentive virtually as a live classroom setting- if not more so as she can scan everyone on a level plane.
“I really love the zoom format. I just mentioned it in a facebook post yesterday actually– I was listing positive things and I wrote, ” My prenatal pilates class keeps going (virtually) on zoom. It’s really nice to hold space for other pregnant women right now going through a lot of the same worries together.”
So many women live with pregnancy and postpartum issues, not realizing most symptoms are treatable. From pregnancy to perimenopause and beyond, your body has unique needs, limitations, and opportunities.
Exercise is great, but every woman needs to know the WHY behind the movement in order to make lasting change.
Clients reach out to me YEARS after taking my class to say they think of me when:
They’re in the shower...
Every time they eat a blueberry (inside joke)...
Don’t you want to know
what all the fuss is about?!
The Prenatal Pilates, Postnatal Pilates, and DRA/Core Restore Zoom Programs from Pilates By Carrie are the most comprehensive workout program for any pregnant woman, new mom, or any woman looking to strengthen her core and take control of her fitness at home.
"I have taken several of Carrie’s classes in person and have found them to be a valuable part of my postpartum recovery both physically and mentally. Due to the pandemic, I took my last class online and I was pleasantly surprised at how similar it was to a live class. Carrie puts everyone at ease and was able to do that via Zoom. Even though we never saw each other in person, our class built a community with each other. Carrie was able to watch us each do the exercises on video and provide us with tips and gentle corrections so that we got the most out of the exercise. In Carrie’s classes, you build body strength, but you also build strength as a mom by talking to other women about common early motherhood challenges and by holding each other up. I tell all new moms about Carrie’s classes and, after four kids, I consider her classes an essential part of preparation for and recovery from labor and birth."

“My office has been referring patients to Carrie’s programs for over 5 years. With her background as a Women’s Health Physical Therapist, I have confidence that she is taking good care of the women we send, and they all return with rave reviews. “
“We include information about Carrie’s classes in our folders that are handed out to all of our patients. We have confidence that she is taking care of our patients and love the idea that women can now get the same benefits in an online program they can complete from home.”
“Many of my patients have taken one of Carrie’s programs and have positive things to say about their experience. If women are looking for a prenatal or postpartum exercise instruction, we would recommend her classes.”
“I started Prenatal Pilates in person with Carrie and then due to the Stay-at-home mandate we continued to meet via Zoom. It has been such a bright spot in my week looking forward to connecting to other moms and continuing to take that time for myself and baby. If it weren’t for these meetings I would feel extremely isolated during an already crazy time. Thank you Carrie for continuing to hold this precious space for moms.”
Prenatal Pilates Zoom Student
You are powerful, capable, and wonderful.
I’m here to remind you that you are strong and guide you to accomplish anything you put your mind to.
Hi! I’m Carrie, Women’s Health Physical Therapist and mother of three. When I was pregnant with my first child many moons ago, I searched far and wide for an exercise class that would strengthen my body, teach me tips to make labor easier, and help me connect with other moms. No luck.
After each of my births I longed for someone to take me by the hand and gently guide me through strengthening my body safely. I was too tired to take this on myself. Hello? Anyone out there?
And then when I discovered I had an abdominal separation I was fearful I wouldn’t be able to do the exercises I enjoyed ever again. False!
I used my expertise as a Women’s Health Physical Therapist and learned from the best of the best to design these programs according to my own “wish list”….they are the very programs I was desperately searching for as a pregnant and postpartum woman. I hope you love taking them as much as I loved creating them.
