Frieda Carlsen

Frieda grew up in Wisconsin spending most of her youth in Dance studios or rehearsing for Musical Theater productions. While working toward her BFA in Dance at UW-Milwaukee, she discovered her fascination of movement patterns in the human body and alignment. After graduating she began teaching Ballet and became a PMA certified Pilates Instructor.

Frieda moved to Portland a few years ago and now teaches yoga and dance to kiddos in several preschools around the city. She began taking classes at Industrial Barre when the studio opened and is excited to be a part of the team. You can find her at the Broadway location teaching killer classes!

Her contagious smile is inspirational when suffering through the pain in class. She hopes to share the joys of movement and expression with people of all ages and loves to teach at the studio sharing her philosophy: healthy body, healthy mind, healthy soul.
