I wanted to get back into a more active lifestyle in the early days of my retirement and I was looking for a class which wasn’t all blaring doof doof music and shouted instructions to go harder, go faster… I can’t jump anymore (knees) and I have other health problems which make vigorous movement nigh on impossible. What a find Karin’s Tube training class has been. A whole body work out which leaves me sweating and feeling great-and Karin’s focus on knowing your own body and what you can and can’t do, while gently encouraging you to try alternatives if one exercise doesn’t work, is brilliant. I also like the relaxation at the end of the class which sets me up for a great day ahead. I look forward to trying out some more classes in the future.

"I go to ChiBall class after a long day at work, and usually feeling tired and stressed. I leave class feeling relaxed and energised. chiBall is great fun and keeps your mind active as you follow the movement sequence."

I just love the mix of Qigong, Yoga, Pilates, and meditation - Body and Mind work. When you leave the class your body feels relaxed from the gentle exercise and your mind is clear and at peace. I recommend Chiball for everyone young or old. Josette

Shibashi is a gentle and relaxing form of exercise, which gives your whole body a work out. In a hectic life it is an hour of calm that soothes your body, mind and spirit. I am very happy I found Karin who introduced me to Shibashi.

I really enjoy Karin's ChiBall class. The mix of gentle exercise and coordination with relaxation gives me a great sense of well being. I also enjoy the company of my classmates.

Chi Ball is an amazing mix of disciplines - Tai Chi, Chi Ball, Yoga and more, that gently work on the whole body and leave you feeling lighter, more supple and best of all, relaxed.You become more co-ordinated and balanced in body, mind and spirit. I have participated in Chi Ball since Karin started more than 5 years ago, and really enjoy the physical and social benefits. The classes are fun and undertaken in a calm, supportive environment. The relaxation at the end of class is wonderful and can rejuvenate you in every way. I highly recommend these classes for everyone.

I suffer from poly lower back problems and have been taking slow release medication for chronic pain in the last 2 years. The pain has become more severe and I have had the choice to take breakthrough pain medication or stay in bed in a foetal position to relieve the pain.
Since attending Karin's classes, I am in pain when I get there, however I am pain free when I leave as the exercises that we do in class takes the pressure out of my spine and I am pain free all day. I am also learning how to do the exercises at home to help relieve the pain and not have to take breakthrough medication.

These classes have given me hope where I felt hopeless.

I have tried a variety of other therapies to find relief over the last few years but nothing has worked except for Karin's classes.

I have been doing Karin’s Stretch/Fitball classes for about 6 years. I have scoliosis and under Karin’s watchful eye I have been able to loosen up my body and do a great many more things than I could when I started. She is very big on “know your own body” so I can alter some exercises to do them in a way that doesn’t do damage. The classes are fun and the girls are very friendly. Last year I started Chi Ball which is a combination of a simple dance routine, yoga, pilates and relaxation. This is a fun class that is good for the brain as well as the body.

I have attended Karen's fitball and stretch classes for over 10 years and have found improvement in my core strength, flexibility and co-ordination and learned practical relaxation techniques. I appreciate the individual guidance, encouragement and challenges that Karen provides in each class. It has become an important and enjoyable part of my week.

What a find Karin has been. Although I have many minor, but no major, problems I just love being guided in the use of "hidden"! muscles and being challenged to do that little bit more.
Walking a couple of hours everyday is great but only caters for part of the body.
Karin works with the whole body and, despite working with a group of very different people, she manages to give individual attention to everyone and to remember their needs.
Lots of laughs and social events are also part of Karin's package!
Looking forward to many more sessions Karin.
