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.
