Founder of Power Pilates UK, Korin started her Pilates journey during her dance training over twenty years ago at The London College of Dance, Middlesex University. She then completed her Pilates teacher training with Body Control Pilates in 2004. Korin taught Matwork Pilates for many years in and around London, whist alongside working in television.
She discovered ‘Dynamic Reformer Pilates’ in 2011 and trained at the first Dynamic Reformer studio in London ‘Bootcamp Pilates’. Korin loved energy of the class and the fusion of Pilates and fitness in one. But most of all, the way it noticeably transformed her shape within a matter of weeks.
Korin opened her very own studio ‘Power Pilates UK’ in 2014 in Beckenham and has built a strong team as well as loyal client base over the years. The studio moved to a beautiful new location on Beckenham High Street at the start of 2021 which she describes as her ‘happy place’.
Korin is passionate about making Dynamic Reformer Pilates accessible for all levels of fitness and believes that its is truly is life changing.
‘I think it’s important that our classes maintain the main principals of Pilates, so the exercises are performed with control and precision, but we also step it up a gear with more dynamic exercises and inject the fun factor too, with good pace and energy! So it’s a really challenging class, but in a safe effective way. I am proud to have such a strong team of trainers who continue to deliver high standard classes.’
As well as the studio, Korin also co launched Dynamic Pilates TV back in 2018, which is an online Dynamic Pilates platform that hosts hundreds of on demand classes, taught by trainers from all over the globe, including herself and some of the Power Pilates UK team. The app has grown over the last few years and has members in over 70 countries worldwide.
