Originally from Brazil, Carolina Otero began her career in movement at a very early age, including Karate, Capoeira and swimming. During her childhood, she received gymnastics and Contemporary Dance training, pursuing a career as a professional dancer.
After graduating in Dance from the State University of Campinas, Brazil, she moved to New York to continue her studies at the Martha Graham Contemporary School of Dance. Introduced to Pilates in 2001 while still in Brazil, Carolina found in this practice a new self-realization path, considering its invaluable benefits in order to optimize efficiency in movement and as an a tool for preventing injuries. She got her Pilates certification through Romana’s Pilates and since then, Carolina is delighted to inspire and help her students to have a healthier and happier life.
When not practicing or teaching Pilates, she can be found swimming or having a blast at the gym!
