Carla Oliva

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, a Pilates studio owner and educator. My journey into understanding human anatomy and movement began in 1995 while attaining a Bachelor degree in Physical Education in São Paulo, Brazil. My passion for posture, alignment, and movement led me to attain a Pilates certification thru BASI® in 2011.

I moved to Colorado Springs to assist Gil Hedley on his project, Anatomy from A to Z. In addition to teaching dissection workshops, I am also the Operations Manager for the Institute for Anatomical Research.

I strongly believes that everyone can benefit from the Pilates practice, and I hope to educate my clients on how Pilates can assist them in their fitness goals and lead them to improved body awareness.
