The Trainers

Korin Nolan

Founder of Power Pilates UK, Korin has twenty years’ experience in Pilates training. Having trained as a dancer at The London College of Dance, Middlesex University, she went on to complete her Pilates teacher training with Body Control Pilates 14 years ago. Korin opened her first Dynamic Reformer Pilates studio at Breeze Yoga over four years ago. Korin’s style & approach has developed over the years and her love for Dynamic Reformer Pilates has driven her to the point where she finds herself today. Her main ambition has been to create a studio that produces powerful classes, which maintain the strong foundations of Pilates, combined with more fitness based exercises, that can be taken to the reformer machine. Thus, producing an energised, all rounded workout that challenges the entire body like nothing else. Korin has selected a strong team of trainers, keeping class standards high and works to maintain the outstanding reputation that Power Pilates UK has gained over the past few years.

Emma White

Emma is originally from New Zealand and discovered the benefits of Pilates whilst training as a young classical ballet and contemporary dancer before dancing professionally with the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

She aims to provide her clients with the knowledge and tools necessary to incorporate movement into their lifestyle.

Simge Altuner
Simge’s interest in pilates began after an injury. She practised in a leisure capacity for years and loved how it increased the quality of her life and improved numerous aspects of her health. Simge’s professional studies began with FutureFit (mat pilates) followed by Body Control pilates (reformer pilates). She continued her Pilates education and wanted to help others as those before had helped her.

Following the birth of her first child, Simge also qualified as a pre&post natal Pilates instructor. Knowing first-hand the importance of self-care during her pregnancy, Simge wanted to share her experience and benefit for others and made sure to provide safe training programmes to her clients during this very important time in their life.

Taryne McPherson
Taryne’s style of class is to have a laugh, whilst listening to some banging dance, hip hop, 80’s and occasionally alternative music. Taryne challenges clients within a safe environment following the Pilates principles with an athletic twist!

Taryne’s favourite Pilates exercise has to be the snake or anything which targets our lateral muscles. The snake is one of those Pilates poses which targets copious muscles from the arms to the hamstrings and is great for spinal health in addition to strengthening our lateral muscles, it also develops a trim waist line.

Tom Pitiris
Tom was born and raised in North Queensland, Australia and trained as a professional dancer and musical theatre performer in 2011. Shortly after completing his training he discovered Reformer Pilates as a way to rehabilitate his body after sustaining injuries and immediately took a liking to it because of its similarities to ballet.

After moving to the U.K. in early 2015 to pursue a career in acting he rediscovered the reformer and fell in love with it all over again. In 2019 he completed his Dynamic Reformer Pilates training with the Frame Academy via Active IQ and has since been teaching for a few different studios around London.

Using his knowledge of dance, Pilates and strength based fitness, Tom now programs creative and fun classes with an additional focus on building upper body strength, something he feels is often neglected in group fitness classes.

Expect to hear throwback hits from the nineties and noughties as well as fun pop playlists to brighten your mood while getting lean and strong.
