Keren Patzia has been in the Fitness Industry since the year 2000, where she had completed her studies in various school throughout the UK, such as Premier Training, YMCA, and Schwinn.
Upon her return to Greece in 2007, her severe back injury led her to further her fitness knowledge into a more therapeutic approach, and committed to Pilates.
Keren studied comprehensively 600hours with Power Pilates NY in Athens with Evgenia Papadopoulou
She has attended Modern and Classical Pilates Conventions and Workshops in Greece, Los Angeles, Italy and Great Britain with Presenters from all over the world, such as Karen Frischmann, Sandy Shimoda, Kathy Ross Nash and Jay Grimes just to name a few.
She finally met her match with her mentors Jay Grimes (First Generation Teacher, also known as an “Elder” in Pilates), Sandy Shimoda (Owner of Vintage Pilates LA, California, vintagepilates.com), and Karen Frischmann (Master Trainer of Vintage Pilates).
Keren was chosen to complete “The Work” in 2015 through Vintage Pilates, a one years, intense and very selected Master Training Program, with only 12 candidates from all over the world each year. She is now committed in passing on through Jays words of wisdom, teaching and philosophy, just as the original intentions were on the Method in Joe’s studio back then.
Since then, she has been passing on her knowledge, teaching in Athens and Paros to Classical and Contemporary instructors, and will be hosting in collaboration with Sofia Voutsina (TheRealWork Pilates Studio, Athens, Kifissia) the first Classical Pilates Convention in November 2018.
“Reflecting on all I have learned, I continue to take private lessons with teachers that inspire me and help me truly understand the system Joe created. Pilates is like an equation..the numbers have to add up to make sense!”
