“Karmen’s Pilates classes work wonders for me and have given me a better outlook on the importance of fitness and health and how fun much exercise can be.” Anisah
“I attend Karmen’s classes with great joy – she is clear and the classes are never boring. I feel a lot of commitment and focus from Karmen when she leads a class – it makes me feel confident. She has often made time to answer my questions after class. I am happier and healthier now than I have ever been.” Peta, theatre practitioner
“I used to think that Pilates wasn’t a ‘proper’ work out but can attest to a wobble in my legs and pained expression on my face throughout Karmen’s sessions. It is not only a fantastic addition to ‘conventional’ gym training but it now replaces at least one session a week. It has strengthened previously weak areas and aided my recovery from injuries. With Karmen’s attention to detail, motivational ability (always with a smile) and a seemingly unlimited knowledge of exercises suitable for all abilities she has taken Pilates to a new level.” Steve, media
“I have been going to Karmen’s class for almost a year and my body has changed so much! Karmen is a very welcoming, positive and inclusive teacher. Her concept of exercise is unique and her classes are never boring. I would recommend her class to everyone…London’s best kept secret!” Nikki, Pianist
“Being a personal trainer myself I constantly feel the need to better myself. This is why I attend classes held by Karmen. She is creative and always makes sure all areas of the body are worked hard. I thank her for my increase in fitness and major improvement on my Pilates technique.” Alex
