“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor Frankl

Corporate success is no guarantee of life success. This fact Karen knows full well.

 

Trained as an accountant, Karen worked many years as a regional tax advisor in various MNCs. But back pain and various health issues due to intense working environments and constant travelling, led her to seek a more holistic life – one encompassing success, freedom and choice in both body and mind. The search ended with her discovery of Pilates which has since become her passion both as an instructor and a life-long leaner and practitioner.

 

Now, Karen combines her corporate experience in tackling challenging issues and connecting with people with her passion for Pilates in a winning formula to empower others to gain greater awareness of themselves and to move with ease and fluidity.

 

“Learning empowers life” is Karen’s mantra. “Through movement, whether via Pilates or The Feldenkrais Method®, my goal is for each of us to be made aware of the power we have within and the choices we have for our own growth – physically, mentally and holistically – and ultimately experience freedom.”

 

An active volunteer in a Kenyan NGO, Karen also uses her talents, experience and skills to empower the weak and neglected in society to realize their potential and lead full and meaningful lives.
