Karen Wilder PMA-CPT
Comprehensive Certified Pilates Instructor (Olathe, KS)
Karen has studied the best of both worlds, the structure of classical pilates with Peak Pilates in Boulder, CO and added the therapeutic and restorative regimen of a more evolved pilates system with Polestar Pilates. Karen has also completed a 5-day intensive with Fletcher Pilates and is a licensed provider for Fletcher Towelwork™, Barrework™ and Floorwork™. She is also certified and licensed to teach Bootybarre® classes and even incorporates TRX with her private clients. Karen has attended the Fletcher Pilates International Conference in 2013 and 2015, maintaining continuing education. Karen has advanced training in women’s health through Polestar Pilates International. She has also recently attended a 4 day workshop called “The Classical Syllabus” taught by an International Pilates teacher trainer, Mejo Wiggin in Fort Worth, Texas. Prior to her pilates journey, Karen taught group fitness classes for many years along with becoming an A.C.E. certified personal trainer. Karen suffered a back injury in her 20’s and was introduced to pilates and found that practicing pilates on a regular basis greatly reduced her back pain, improved her posture and overall helped in her daily activities. Before Pilates, Karen graduated from KU with a degree in pharmacy, she has since gotten her Pharm. D. degree from KU and still works a couple Sundays a month at a local hospital.
