THE NEXT LEVEL has come out of Carmen's many years of study with various teachers and lineages of Joseph Pilates. She has trained specifically with teachers under Eve Gentry, Romana Kryzanowska and is currently a student of Jay Grimes. As a long time student of pilates, Carmen is familiar with the work and energy required to be a successful practitioner of pilates. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is a mentorship program. It is designed for those teachers and pilates practitioners to deepen their understanding of Joseph Pilates' work. It is an opportunity to be fully immersed in his philosophy and training.  

THE NEXT LEVEL is to guide, rather than teach the pilates practitioner. It is by way of consistent training, learning and listening that the student will grow deeper in understanding the brilliant work of Joseph Pilates. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is comprised of 4 modules presented in order to develop the necessary progression of learning for the practitioner. 

THE NEXT LEVEL successful applicant MUST PASS each module assessment. Gaining entrance into THE NEXT LEVEL does not automatically guarantee the student into all the modules. There maybe a time when a student will be asked to wait and take the modules offered in the following year. Practice is what will take the student to the next level in the work.

THE NEXT LEVEL will consider a pilates practitioner with a minimum of two years practice.  20 privates or Skype lessons with Carmen are the recommended minimum to those considering applying for THE NEXT LEVEL

THE NEXT LEVEL will accept 1 to 4   students each year.





THE NEXT LEVEL will take place 4 times a year. From mid week to mid week with the Intensive Module weekend in-between. Time will be spent in observation, privates, AP classes, and workshops.
