About Karen

I discovered Pilates many years ago when I moved from London to Oxfordshire. I had always seen exercise as a necessary evil that enabled me to eat chocolate without getting too fat. I did my fair share of slogging it out at the gym but never really understood the feel good high that people spoke about. I read a couple of articles about Pilates and thought that it sounded interesting so I set about finding a class. I remember my very first class. My teacher was amazing. An ex-dancer with a fantastic body, she was a lovely lady who radiated confidence and really inspired me. The exercises weren’t easy, but they made sense and made me feel great. My body became stronger and my muscles more toned. My posture improved to the point that my exaggerated lumbar curve (which had caused me significant lower back pain) disappeared as I …

About Piloga Fitness

Piloga is a combination of Pilates & Yoga that draws on the core strength emphasis in Pilates and the flexibility and mindfulness of Yoga. It combines elements best suited for toning, strengthening and lengthening muscles to give improved flexibility and mobility and a leaner, more streamlined body. It targets the deep core muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It improves posture and can help reduce back pain. With the coordination of movement and breathing it is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension.

"I have been attending Karen’s pilates classes for seven years. She is an inspiring and thoughtful teacher, with a natural ability to communicate with a class of varying ages and capabilities. I continue to enjoy her sessions very much."

"Karen immediately puts you at ease and makes her class informative and enjoyable whist tailoring to individuals. Her calming voice and peaceful meditations are easy to follow and have a most desirable effect before and at the end of some of her classes. "

"When Karen started the virtual classes I was dubious at first not being in a live class but I was pleasantly surprised. I can book a few classes ahead and even book on the day! I can take part in the class in the comfort of my home and even wear my pyjamas. No going out if it’s raining and no hassle with parking."

"Love the combination of stretches and toning exercises. I am so much more flexible…and taller! Friends noticed an improvement in my posture after just a few months. After classes I always feel relaxed and more clear headed. When I overdo the gardening my lower back recovers faster My upper body is stronger. Pilates tones – taking off inches. There is such a sense of accomplishment when you make progress."

"(The virtual classes have been...) an absolute life saver for me both physically and emotionally. Having the opportunity to tune in via Zoom and follow Karen’s professional guidance and participate in her unique combination of Pilates and Yoga has been wonderful."

"Karen talks you through each of the moves and demonstrates them as she does so. Each class lasts for one hour which flies by when you are having such a good time exercising in this way and knowing that it is doing you such a lot of good. So why not treat yourself and join in with us?"

"(Pilates...) was recommended by my Chiropractor and I haven’t looked back since. My posture is now really good, core strength is amazing and I am more supple now than when I was a lot younger. All with no back problems. Karen is a wonderful teacher and a real inspiration."

"Karen puts a lot of emphasis on coordinating breathing in concert with movement, and I find this very helpful during the class to keep up the flow, energy levels and overall “feel good factor”. I really look forward to the classes and hope to increase to 2 classes weekly very soon."
