About the Instructor/Owner

Carol Jacobs grew up practicing Pilates mat as a young dancer in the '80s as a serious student of classical ballet. Years later, after leaving the world of dance, she returned to Pilates when a post-partum injury led to severe and chronic pain with every day activities. This injury began Carol's journey of becoming a certified Pilates teacher as well as a physical therapist so that she could share the healing power of movement with others. Her goal is to help you breathe, move, and live better!

Business Review

I am new to Pilates and I am thrilled to have found Carol.  I appreciate the one on one care and instruction I am receiving in my private sessions until I am ready to join a group session. I also love that Carol's group sessions are small- only 4-5 clients.   I have a knee injury and Carol's background as a physical therapist has been very reassuring that I'm not going to reinjure it, in addition to the way she is able to correct my form to prevent injury to any other parts of my body. Above all else, Carol is patient and kind and I truly believe she wants to be part of my wellness journey.  I highly recommend Embody Pilates to anyone looking for Pilates in Roanoke, Virginia. - Beth Bell, Publisher of Macaroni KID Roanoke
