Fascinating.
I always think that Carola Trier's contribution within the Pilates Methodology does not somehow get proper recognition.

I love this in sight into a woman who changed so many lives through her passion. She clearly was passionate about everything in her life and that of course comes with it's ups and downs ..But that is Life and its beautiful !!!! Thank you Paul for sharing ...

Thank you Pilates Anytime and Paul! I can’t get enough of the legacy project xxx
I was referred to Carola Trier in 1977, wearing bilateral knee braces, after dance related knee injurys when I was 18 years old. I studied with her for 2 years before moving West. She asked me to stay and become a trainer which I was unable to do, one of the biggest regrets of my life. In 2000 I became a Certified Pilates Instructor following a career as an Occupational Therapist, never returning to dance. Carola was one of the biggest influences of my life. She taught me a lot about how to be a smart, strong, independent woman. I am only so sorry I did not keep in touch with her for I think she would be really proud of what I have done and recognize her influence. She was fiery and passionate and cared deeply for her clients. I loved her dearly.
Impressive! Thank you PA :)
Love these legacy talks that bring the elders little by little a little closer to us! Thank you!
