About the Founder
Karen grew up in Vancouver and later returned to Hong Kong to complete her Master’s degree.
Pilates and GYROTONIC® become Karen’s passion and sanctuary from the bustling city life. She observed her health issues were a common problem in Hong Kong. Many individuals around her faced similar health problems with no permanent solution or cure. Determined to build a community around this soothing, mindful exercise, Karen opened the first postural correction studio and returned to the original body alignment. She helps people feel the deeper connection between their minds and bodies. By doing so, she wants them to recover from the build-up exhaustion and stress locked up in their bodies.
Through Pilates, Karen strengthened her core muscles and eased the pain in her muscles. The stretching and pulling involved within the exercise helped her alleviate back pain and assisted her in overcoming her posture-related issues.
GYROTONIC® boosted her range of motion, reduced joint stiffness, and improved blood circulation around her joints. This helps her fight arthritis. So, Pilates and GYROTONIC® was a life-changing element for Karen in more than one way.
