Carol Youngjohn

Carol is a fully certified STOTT PILATES® instructor and has been with Core Response since 2006. She is also a former professional ballet dancer. For nearly 30 years, she has served on the staff at Westside School of Ballet in Santa Monica teaching ballet to children.

Carol was introduced to Pilates while performing with the Sacramento Ballet by her physical therapist, Brent Anderson, who is now the owner of Polestar Pilates. Several years later, her interest in Pilates really took off as she was rehabilitating a knee injury.

Carol loves working with young dancers and helping them discover stability, flexibility, strength while also preventing or rehabbing their injuries.

Carol holds a certificate in fitness training from UCLA Extension. She is also certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and has completed the Zen-ga Instructor Foundation Equipment Course. Zen-ga™ is a unique program that incorporates creative, lively, exploratory movements based on the latest research in neuromyofascial training.
