Karen Prato

After being an international croupier for 10 years, Karen ventured in to the world of personal training/aerobics 21 years ago. She started practising Pilates to help her back and neck issues, and then did her teacher-training with Stott Pilates in Toronto, Canada, Body Arts & Science in London and later "bridged" her teaching qualification with Power Pilates to specialise in the classical method. After working alongside a team of osteopaths for over 5 years, in 2006 Karen set up Pure Movement Pilates, opening her fully-equipped classical Pilates studio in 2009. In 2011, she released two popular 20 minute Pilates DVDs. puremovement-pilates.co.uk Twitter Facebook
