About Carmen

Carmen Lanteigne is the owner of Aligned Pilates. 

Carmen began her journey with Pilates in 2002 as a self-taught student to the mat work with Mari Windsor Pilates videotapes. Soon after, Carmen started taking mat lessons and then quickly introduced to Pilates on the apparatus. 

In December 2007, Carmen received her first formal Teacher Certification from Core Dynamics Pilates Studio in Santa Fe, under second-generation teacher Michele Larrson (first generation Eve Gentry).

In October 2009, Carmen completed the Masters Teacher Training Program from The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO.

In September 2012, Carmen continued her education in the in-depth lineage of Romana Kryzanowska Pilates with her teachers Brooke Siler and Cary Regan at Re: AB Pilates Studio in New York City. 

In November 2017, Carmen graduated among 12 chosen teachers worldwide from The Work Program with Pilates 1st generation teacher Jay Grimes and mentoring teachers Sandy Shimoda and Karen Frischman of Vintage Pilates in Los Angeles.

Today, Carmen keeps a very dedicated personal practice, and trains weekly under the watchful eye of her mentoring teachers through on-line lessons. Travelling worldwide to workshops throughout the year is key to Carmen staying current as a student and teacher.

"I believe the work of Joseph Pilates requires lots of practice. My job as a classical Pilates teacher is to help guide students to find Pilates in themselves." - Carmen Lanteigne
