Our Instructors

Michele Karlin

Michele Karlin is the owner of Revelation Bodywork, LLC and a certified Pilates instructor. She has furthered her study of integrative movement, anatomy, and modification for injuries and pathologies. She is currently authoring a continuing education training that incorporates complementary modalities into one seamless practice for Revelation teachers.

Since 2011, owner Michele Karlin and her staff have delivered inspired, safe Pilates-based training to help students achieve their personal best. Rather than relying on the latest fitness trends or societal expectations, Revelation imparts a focused somatic approach to movement using a variety of Pilates equipment, props, and mat work. This allows each individual to tune in and recognize his or her own physical needs and highest potential and to advocate for him or herself. Prioritizing conscious movement and self-awareness as opposed to self-judgement, our method builds confidence and an innate understanding of self care that sets students up for success both inside and outside the studio. With a combined 40+ years experience, our methods are based in science and supported by the therapeutic communities with which we collaborate. We are knowledgeable and always happy to work with your therapist or medical practitioner or refer you to one of our well-respected colleagues should the need arise. We look forward to serving the students, families and friends of C-Unit Studio!
