Growing up in her home town of Curitiba in Brazil, Carolina was introduced to dancing ballet and jazz at a very young age and fell in love with the art of body movement.
Her growing passion for dance also included Brazilian Samba and Axe. At age 17, Caro was diagnosed with a mild case of arthritis and her doctor recommended she add Pilates to her movement regime.
While Caro enjoyed Pilates, she had to put it on the back burner to focus on her studies as a full-time college student.
In 2006, Carolina moved to the United States to pursue the “American Dream”. To support herself, she started a small cleaning business that was very physically demanding.
The work began to take its toll on her back and the hard physical work was wearing her body down.
