“Tough times never last, but tough people do…”
I am Kimberley Karlsson – The founder of Pilates CORE. In 2014, I had spine surgery after having my first child. My existence was daily pain killers and not being able to lift and carry my newborn without immense pain. Returning to work as a teacher of performing arts and dance was practically impossible. Back surgery enabled me to walk again, but with restrictions on my flexibility and physical activity – it was safe to say goodbye to my career in teaching dance. I moved on to teaching primary KS2, but couldn’t deny my passion for pilates and the stress my current job was giving me… So here I am, doing what I love and sharing my knowledge to help others.
Pilates has been a huge part of my rehabilitation, served me well through having my second child and today, I am pain free and fitter than ever.
