Arwen's Story

Arwen Brooke is the owner of CoLab Movement Studio, founder of CoreAlign CoLab, an Educator for Balanced Body in Pilates & CoreAlign, and a founding member of the Pilates Education Collective. 


She’s been teaching Pilates since 2006 and training and certifying teachers since 2011. She was introduced to the CoreAlign in 2015 and became an educator in that method in 2018. Also a practicing Yogi for many years, she completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher training in 2020 and often infuses her teaching with some of that beautiful and ancient wisdom as well. 


When working one-on-one, Arwen excels at unwinding the human body, alleviating pain from all sorts of life-acquired imbalances, and training for ease and strength. In a class setting, she manages to do all of this while moving you through a challenging flow, strategically designed to give you a workout that both makes you feel amazing and informs your relationship with your body for lasting change.


As a teacher trainer, she coaches her students with positivity and clarity while illuminating the workings of the human body in an approachable and practical way. 


Arwen brings a lightness and heartfelt care to every class or training session. She encourages you to rediscover your own power and inner light!


Arwen currently lives and teaches  in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. She offers in person sessions and classes at her studio in Ben Lomond, and virtual and on-demand sessions and classes all around the world!


When she’s not teaching or coaching instructors, she is out with her family hiking, camping, traveling the globe or just out to eat!
