With a classical dance background I have always had a passion for movement. After many years at stage school, performing with dance and theatre companies I decided to take a break to study graphic design. This led to a decade of working within the publishing industry with dance classes becoming the antidote to my desk job. It was only a matter of time before I returned to a movement based career.
My Pilates training began in 2006 and following a basic certification I continued my study with the ‘Pilates Advanced Training School’ PATS Pilates, gaining a CYQ Level 3 Diploma in 2009. I now consider this training school my Pilates home and continue to broaden and refresh my knowledge through workshops and studio days. With daily practice of the Pilates method I have maintained a balanced body which is supple and strong, improving all aspects of my life.
I appreciate this even more as a busy mother in my late-forties and feel stronger in both mind and body than ever before.
I thrive on challenges and tailor my sessions to each client’s individual needs and goals. I teach with patience, compassion, enthusiasm and a well trained eye. What I love most about my job is hearing a client vocalise that they feel so much better on leaving the studio than when they arrived.
Karolina trained as a Pilates instructor under Alan Herdman’s tutelage and gained her comprehensive certification in 2018. Having previously worked in the fashion industry she discovered Pilates to be the best remedy to bringing calm to a stressful life. Karolina focuses on maximising well being, helping her clients develop strength and body awareness to ensure long term optimal health.
Karolina is currently on maternity leave but we look forward to welcoming her back to the studio soon.
