Instructor Trainer
Owner of The Pilates Studio in Nassau, Bahamas and STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor Trainer, DENISE CARTER is very committed to continuing education. With certificates ranging from Myofacial Release Massage to Active Isolated Stretching, Denise is also certified in both ACE Personal Training and Group Fitness and is currently studying for an Associates Degree in Physical Therapy Assistance.

Managing the fitness center at the exclusive Lyford Cay Club offered Denise the opportunity to work closely with a diverse clientele including post-rehab, scoliosis & pre- and post-natal cllients. Says Denise “The STOTT PILATES Five Basic Principles are an excellent teaching and learning tool, that can be used any where, any time”.

The Studio
The fully equipped pilates studio is located on Blake Road near the beautiful Bahamas waters. It is a five minute walk to the local shopping center that includes a sidewalk cafe, art gallery, supermarket and more.

Getting There
If you are coming from Downtown or Cable Beach all bus stops are located in front of the Hotels. It is a 40 minute ride from Downtown and a 30 minute fride from Cable Beach. You may ask the bus driver to stop in front of the Western Medical Plaza on Blake Road. The Pilates Studio is right in the front to the right. Look for the sign on the side of the road.

Please email for a list of hotels available in Nassau.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
