Karen Brown

I discovered Pilates in 1990, at Trevor Blount’s studio in London, after falling from a horse and injuring my back. I was travelling a lot which aggravated my already stressed back and poor posture. The results were remarkable, and my flexibility and posture improved. I came back to Pilates to help my body recover from the birth of my twins, and discovered Body Control Pilates. I was so inspired by the method I wanted to teach it to others
It is a remarkably effective method, and is often recommended by osteopaths to help improve muscle recruitment, achieve ‘core stability’ and improve day to day ‘functional’ movement.
I believe that the struggles I have had with my own body have made me a better, more compassionate teacher and I can think of nothing better than to pass on my enthusiasm to others!!
I am a fully qualified and insured Level 3 Matwork Body Control Pilates Teacher. I also have a Level 3 award in Designing Exercise programmes for Older Adults. This means I have the knowledge to accommodate those with common medical ‘age’ related conditions, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, hip and knee replacements.
I live in Stroud, with my husband Vincent, and the twins.


Body Control Pilates ( resumes 11th Sept )

Mixed ability class, regardless of fitness level.
Pilates is most effective when attended regularly, and ideally undertaken in 6 week blocks. This enables progression through the exercises, and for clients to set and meet their own goals. A Client Enrolment form will be given to fill in, so that I am aware of any medical conditions that may affect exercise.

Cost £54 for a block of 6 classes. £10 for drop in sessions. Please contact me first as spaces are limited.

A 1:1 session is recommended to cover the fundamentals of Body Control Pilates.


Wednesday 9.30am - 10.30am Studio 2
