Episode Description

I am joined by my first expert guest in today’s bonus episode, the beautiful and soulful Karen Eccles from her Pilates studio in the UK. As a Pilates expert, Karin has been teaching Pilates for over a decade, specialising in classical Pilates since 2012. Originally Contemporary trained, Karen now studies, practices, and teaches Classical Pilates since she was first introduced to it in 2012 when she attended a Classical Pilates Convention. 

With an eagerness to learn, Karen continually seeks out the best training opportunities available to her and understands the importance of personal practice. She is demonstrating the importance of prioritising self-care and self-development to motivate others to do the same. Karen shares her knowledge and experience at every opportunity, teaching and guiding with enthusiasm and integrity. 

Teaching and guiding with enthusiasm and integrity, Karen shows clients how to understand their body and nature their body awareness to feel in control of their health and wellness.  Through experience and training, Karen has an innate understanding of how lift circumstances and events, mindset, and emotion can manifest physically.  She now incorporates work with energy and sound healing that works in alignment with Pilates.  This unique blend of these three practices alleviates physical symptoms, resets emotions, and brings equilibrium and a sense of wellbeing. 

During the podcast episode, she also shares a personal experience on the podcast that helped release her to become fully empowered and free to live her purpose.

Karen is a delight, and I loved catching up with her. If you wish to contact her, you can find out more by visiting:
