to Your Heritage.



Your Skills and Practice.



Our Thriving Community!


This program offers a unique opportunity for extensive training in the Kathy Grant work in The Pilates Method through the lens and experience of her long-time student, Cara Reeser.


 You will have the chance to work in an intimate setting, examine the philosophy, vocabulary, techniques and teaching tools passed along to Cara from Kathy and to Kathy from Joseph and Clara - the lineage to which we all belong. 

You will gain a deep connection to this work through hands- on training, practical application, video library access, and small group mentoring.


The class of Pilates professionals will gather with Cara two times within the month of June. Training classes will be held at JRProPilates (Kreuzstrasse 42, 8008 Zürich, Switzerland). There is a total of 40 contact hours, and students will get 40 PMA CECs for completion of this program.

This is a slightly abbreviated program of sessions 1 & 2 only. Upon completion of these two sessions, students can buy and take session 3 at any time or location that it is offered.


The program enrollment will be limited to approximately 15-20 students and registration will be closed when it is full.   

If you are interested, now is the time to contact us and commit.

Cara Reeser is the owner and Senior Instructor at Pilates Aligned, Inc. in Denver, Colorado. She earned a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA in Dance, from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. It was at NYU that Cara began her initial studies in the Pilates Method with first generation Master Teacher, Kathleen Stanford Grant.


In 1993, Cara moved to Boulder, Colorado where she continued her Pilates training at The Pilates Center.  After certification, Cara taught there for six years before opening her own studio.


Cara is a continuing education provider for Pilates instructors offering a variety of workshops and mentoring programs for professionals worldwide as well as online with Pilates Anytime.  


As a second-generation Pilates instructor and lineage carrier of the Kathy Grant work, Cara is the lead teacher and director of a post graduate training program called The Heritage Training®, she is also the co-owner and co-educator for Movement Science Made Simple,

a continuing education platform that works to advance the knowledge of functional movement and motor leaning for Pilates teachers.  


Cara was a member of the Department of Dance faculty at Naropa University for 15 years, she danced and choreographed professionally for over 20 years. For the past 10 years has been a dedicated student of the Yoga tradition, all of which has inspired her interest in the science of movement and the body-mind connection. 




Cara fiercely believes that the practice of Pilates can lead to a mind-body transformation that will change the life of those who seriously embrace it. Using Pilates as both a wellness-health practice and therapy for injured athletes, dancers and the physically compromised, Cara has a proven record of success. She is dedicated to helping other teachers provide their clients with the same results!


She accomplishes this by helping Pilates professionals better understand the human body so they can strengthen their skill as teachers. Cara's knowledge of anatomy and movement mechanics allows her to pass on the traditions of Joseph and Clara Pilates and their student, Kathy Grant. It was Kathy who taught and mentored Cara for more than 20 years.


It is to these three pioneers - and the other holders of the lineage - that Cara pays daily homage. It is their work that inspires her to innovate and move forward as an instructor, herself.


Another part of Cara's mission is to bring added respect to an industry that has too often been diluted into just another form of fitness exercise. To reach this goal, she believes that strong continuing education is essential. She believes that all teachers have it within them to become master teachers. And she believes that it is this team of Pilates professionals that will carry the torch forward.
