Karen was diagnosed with two prolapsed discs in her lower back and curvature in her spine in 2003. Karen was introduced to Pilates and has practised on a regular basis ever since. Her belief in the benefits encouraged her to change career, after many years spent in Financial Services as an Operations Manager, and to train to become a Pilates Instructor. Karen trained with Body Control Pilates Association, Europe’s largest professional Pilates body. Karen specialises in dealing with people who suffer with Back Pain and those who want to improve their Pilates Technique. Karen is qualified to teach Pilates on the Reformer, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel and Chair.
