Carolyne Anthony, the Founder of The Center for Women’s Fitness is an NCPT, Polestar, BASI and PhysicalMind certified Pilates Instructor with additional training as a John Barnes Myofascial Release Practitioner, INEH and Certified Birth Doula. She began her professional career as a dancer in London where she was introduced to the Pilates Method by Alan Herman in 1983.
Her passion lies in developing curriculum for Women’s Health with specialties in Pelvic Floor Health and Diastasis Recti Recovery. Her course offerings include pre and postnatal, menopause, the mature woman and a special interest in the traditional art of massaging and binding of the postpartum abdominals. She has been training teachers internationally for nearly 30 years and currently has over 3000 teachers in 41 countries teaching her method.
This desire to work according to the female anatomy and physiology has led Carolyne to continue her studies of other modalities such as myofascial release (she is a John Barnes practitioner). Her training in Esoteric Healing (INEH) has allowed her to look at her clients through the lens of the subtle bodies- the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as well as the physical. She is currently learning all things fascia with John Sharkey, Carla Stecco , Robert Schleip and others in the fascia world.
She has 28 faculty in Asia, North and South America, Europe, Australia and the Middle East teaching her work.
