Karen Toth

Karen Toth, author, speaker and founder of Healthy Body Moves, helps people experience the wealth that comes from an inspired holistic approach to living. 

I’m a movement specialist.  If this sounds like someone you’d like working with your child, give me a call.

Karen Toth has been in the body movement starting with her love of teaching group fitness classes at the local YMCA in 1991.   Karen loves learning and starting teaching Pilates in 1999, she discovered the Feldenkrais Method that same year.   In 2004 Karen started the 4 years of training to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner(r).  She studies with Anat Baniel based in California and became an Anat Baniel Method Practitioner, ABM for Children, ABM for Anti-Aging and ABM for Elite Athletes and Musicians.

Anat Baniel has children come to see hier in California from around the world.  Anat took her teaching from Moshe Feldenkrais, creating the Anat Baniel Method for Children!   During the training Karen found her passion to work with children with special needs as well as all populations.   Being a single mom and her love of learning has given her many insights to help people of all walks of life, from infants, children, adults, musician and athletes.

2 books by Anat Baniel that really explain this work are Move Into Life: The Nine Essentials of Lifelong Learning and Kids Beyond Limits.

1 book by Norman Doidge that explains the Feldenkrais Method in Chapter 5 of his book “The Brain’s Way of Healing”.

There are a number of books by Moshe Feldenkrais that are amazing to read as well, including “The Case of Nora”, The Potent Self, Body and Mature Behavior, Higher Judo, The Elusive Obvious and Awareness Through Movement.

Karen has her own book “Pre and Post Natal Pilates”
