John McCarthy

Pilates Haven co-owner

Romana’s Pilates Certified Instructor

John was introduced to Pilates a decade ago at the New School University, where he took a semester-long class taught by Pam Pardi. He loved the class so much that heĀ began taking private sessions with Pam. A lifelong hockey player, John was strong but tight. Finding his Powerhouse (core muscles) helped John loosen his hip flexors and balance his strength.

After completing the intensiveĀ 800 hour Romana’s Pilates certification program, John taught in both New York City and Connecticut, working with a wide range of clients, from fashion designers, to athletes, to academics. Known for his dynamic flow, energy, and wit John now guest teaches internationally throughout the year.
