Over Skype or In – Studio

Cadillac Lesson

You started as a client loving the work.  You continued as an apprentice, getting your butt kicked on a daily-basis. 

Now your own lessons are getting put aside as the demands of running your business and teaching full time are taking over. 

You really miss those intense workouts, the personal way you learned Pilates and the regular opportunities to deepen your knowledge of the work.

Conference and workshops are great, but they only come around every few months and nothing replaces a regular lesson to get back to what you love. Doing the work.

You wish there was a way for you to get regular lessons with an experienced classical teacher without having to leave your studio.


I’m here to help.


I’m a mentor for dedicated Pilates teachers who want to continue learning the classical Method.  I’ve been teaching classical Pilates for over 20 years, and teaching online lessons since 2011.

My private lessons are geared to the needs and demands of Pilates teachers.  Each lesson will give you the intense workout you crave, the expertise of an experienced, classical teacher, and the in-depth analysis of the work you want to refine your teaching skills and deepen your understanding of the Pilates method.

As a result of regular  lessons you’ll:

  • Get an amazing workout under a watchful eye
  •  Learn new Pilates exercises and advanced techniques
  • Discover new ways to problem-solve client issues and injuries
  • Learn the way you did when you fell in love with Pilates

Lessons are offered internationally over Skype and in-studio in my private Los Angeles studio and at Pilates*Ology Studio in Hermosa Beach.

Single session $125 USD

Package of 10 sessions $1200 USD

Karen Frischmann is possibly the finest Pilates instructor I have ever had. Her knowledge of the Pilates Method and the body is such that you can really tell she has digested the method and made it her own. She offers patient but firm instruction and always helps me learn something new about my body, an exercise or an overarching theme of the Pilates method. I am fortunate enough to have a regular weekly appointment with Karen and to count her among my friends.

Karen is an amazing amazing teacher and mentor!

I started working with Karen in the fall of 2014 training to get into Vintage Pilates’ THE WORK.  She became my main teacher and mentor. I connected with her right away as both a person and as a teacher.  There was no ego whatsoever, just a real person wanting the best in you.  She knew what I needed and wanted and she kept at it until I got into the WORK in 2015.

She is the Clara Pilates of our time and I would have not become the teacher I am today if it wasn’t for her.  She is real, compassionate, and takes you out of your comfort zone.  Her eyes are eagle eyes, seeing everything in your body and as soon as you walk through that door, she will know what your body needs and wants then she will make that body achieve what was needed on that day!  There is nothing you can hide from her…… and yet remains very humble – indeed a rare trait nowadays when you are one of the top teachers in the world.  Thank you Karen!

Even though I graduated from THE WORK in November of 2015 she still remains my main teacher and mentor …….  I look forwards to continuing my Pilates journey with you!

“Karen’s knowledge of Pilates is broad and deep, based on years of practice, reflection, and instruction from master teachers like Jay Grimes and Romana Kryzanowska. She has a keen eye and perceives the smallest detail of how my body experiences a particular exercise. She then shapes my sessions according to exactly what is needed. She inspires me to discover connection within myself — mind to body, and body to itself — and also to make connections between the exercises. She is skilled at unwinding complexity and then building sequences that facilitate understanding and progress. Her creativity and curiosity seem boundless. I have many “aha” moments as Karen relates aspects of Pilates to my interests in playing music, running, and cycling. I am grateful for her patience, good humor, kindness, and skill in guiding me to discovery after discovery.”
