Kara Botelho

Kara became interested in pilates in the mid 2000’s after a hip and back injury that left permanent spinal instability. When she discovered that the best way to keep her back in health was pilates, she became passionate and enthusiastic about it! A life long sports competitor and enthusiast, Kara has found that pilates has both increased her strength and stamina, as well as improved her muscle symmetry, and believes that it can do the same for everyone. Kara also works as a certified personal trainer, and as such, is dedicated to helping people achieve their true physical potential through fitness.
