Meet Denise Carter
Denise has successfully worked throughout the world for STOTT PILATES® and has over 30 years of teaching experience. Her combined knowledge and understanding of kinesiology is integrated well into her teachings of the Pilates Method. Denise continues to guide students and clients to be able to master their own personal technique and professional growth.
Denise continues to travel and split her time to teach students and clients in Australia and The Bahamas.
Denise's fitness career started in The Bahamas at the exclusive Lyford Cay Club in 1995 where she managed the Wellness Center. She found her passion and strength was training and educating her clients in fitness and health. In 1999, while attending a fitness expo in Philadelphia, Denise fell in love with the anatomically based repertoire of STOTT PILATES and became a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor in 2003. Soon after being certified, she opened the only STOTT PILATES Certification Center in the Caribbean. Denise has also represented STOTT PILATES throughout the world as a Certified Instructor Trainer and continues to travel and split her time to teach students in Australia and The Bahamas.
“I will forever be a student and love to share all that I have learned. I enjoy inspiring my students to gather and develop their technique and skills to become confident and knowledgeable instructors.”
Denise has recently completed her Life Coaching Certification which encompasses, embodiment and Focusing work. She has added this new skill to her teaching toolbox and loves how it all meshes well together with the STOTT PILATES system.
