I would definitely recommend Karyn for Pilates. She is hands on, explains everything, and cares how you feel. Classes with her really get you going for the day ahead. She is the best.
Karyn’s classes were fantastic! They were so personalized. She knew every inch of my body (arthritis and all) and how best to modify things for me. She is a positive, inspiring and calm person. This comes across clearly in her teaching. I was so lucky to have found her!
Karyn is an amazing person and pilates instructor. I have told many people that she is the best teacher that I have ever met. Karyn has a way of describing the movements that make you so aware of your body and what you have to do. She is able to read each students body and personalize the session so that everyone’s needs are met. We all miss her in Dubai.
I am so grateful I had a chance to meet Karyn and attend her pilates classes, which I really enjoyed. As she knows a lot about anatomy she helped me with my back problems. I can highly recommend her.
Karen is a wonderful person to be around, charged with positive energy. As an instructor she is constantly updating herself. She works closely with each person in the group according to their body needs. She is exceptionally good at motivating the group, her verbal instructions plus her knowledge in the muscle structure, helped me visualize and focus on the concerned areas, and eventually started to feel the exercise.
I joined Karyn’s pilates class three years ago, with a weak body, especially my back, and cannot believe the transformation in my body shape, flexibility, and strength of my core. I miss my twice weekly dose of pilates with Karyn!
Karyn is a wonderful person and even better as a teacher. She is extremely perceptive and knowledgeable. She is teaches each of her students accordingly and she has helped me tremendously to get to know my body and free me of neck and knee pain that I had struggled with for years. I couldn’t recommend her more.
Karyn is an amazing pilates instructor and makes you feel that you can achieve anything. She is patient and has an amazing knowledge of the body and mind which filters down into her classes. What can I say? She’s amazing one to one, but equally great in her classes. I only wish she was still in Dubai.
I had never enjoyed any form of exercise, and had tried pilates before, but once I joined Karyn’s classes it was like doing pilates for the first time! I really appreciated her professionalism, encouragement and care. I became more in touch with my body and understood far more about it. It greatly improved my back pain, and flexibility, as well as my general well-being. To me Karyn is far more than a pilates instructor, she has a gift of holistic healing.
I was 50 and needed some form of exercise. I liked the idea of pilates. I had done some before but had never got past beginners stage. I met Karyn and she was able to motivate me into making a commitment to regular sessions with her. It changed my life… my physical health improved, and my posture began transforming.
In 2016, I had a skiing accident and broke my spine. After surgery and a few months of recovery, I went to Karyn for physio. In just 12 months my body was strong and I was ready to have the metal structure removed from my back. My surgeon was completely impressed and encouraged me to return to pilates as soon as my surgery had healed. Although Karyn has moved away, she has left me in good hands and I continue to make good progress. Thanks Karyn, I could not have done it without you!
Karyn is a special lady and trainer, her sessions are focused on the mind and body. The sessions are extremely effective and educational, where you start understanding your own body and the right movements. This knowledge goes a long way as I use it in all my moves at the gym. I feel so energetic and inspired by Karyn’s sessions, and her beautiful spirit and encouragement. There’s never a dull moment in class as I am always challenged with new moves. Thank you Karyn for spreading your knowledge.
I trained with Karyn for over 3 years straight and she has an amazing way of assessing you and tailoring the session for you on the day from a required stretch to a hard work out.
Karyn is the best at what she does.
Just starting second batch of weekly classes at Marlow Rowing Club. Very knowledgeable instructor who is able to give bespoke advice and guidance to each person. Patient and empathetic yet encouraging and able to get you to push boundaries. Highly recommend.
Both my boys are hypermobile, and my oldest in particular struggles with posture and strength, and most importantly feeling ‘good enough’ doing physical activity. Karyn’s approach is unique and so powerful, not only focusing on improving both my boys sense of balance and movement, but also their belief in themselves, that they are strong and confident and can do whatever they want. Her approach is exceptional, unique and life changing, it is not just Pilates for ‘core strength’ it is so much more than that and I highly recommend her.
I never really share my story, however Karyn has changed my life. I was diagnosed with Scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and i went through all of my options to avoid surgery, meaning I had physiotherapy both on the NHS and private as well as trying yoga, swimming, running and going to see an osteopath. Unfortunately none of these options worked for me and i had to go back to my surgeon to discuss a spinal operation.
Last June i had an X-ray on my spine and my curve was measuring at 39 degrees. If the curve is 40 degrees or more they operate without question. Due to mine being under, the hospital was happy for me to have a yearly review and decide for myself whether i wanted the operation or not.
I met Karyn in October last year and have been seeing her twice a week 1-1 for 8 months. Karyn was my last option of recovery before deciding whether i wanted surgery or not. During my time with Karyn she has helped me overcome many many challenges i thought i would never be able to do mentally, emotionally and physically.
Working with Karyn intensely has meant that i will never need surgery on my spine and that i can manage with my scoliosis without the operation for life. I went back to have an X-ray early June (a year on…) and my curve has measured at 27 degrees. This is such a rare, yet such an amazing transformation in a year and if it wasn’t for Karyn supporting me then i wouldn’t be where i am today.
Scoliosis is incredibly painful to suffer from, however since seeing Karyn i no longer get pain. I cannot recommend this lovely lady highly enough, she has helped me more than words can describe and has proven that even though you think you’re incapable of many things, you’re not. Anything is achievable!
