"Absolutely loving Pilates with Karolina. Within 4 or 5 classes I could already see a noticeable difference in my core area and really began to build some strength overall. And about Karolina's, well her instructions are both easy and very enjoyable, with small numbers in the class it's almost feels like a personal training session and it's quicker to learn technique. Reformer Pilates, for me, is probably the most effective class I've ever done & I have pretty much tried everything!"
"After three cesaeraen sections, my children used to tease me about having a wobbly tummy. Pilates with Karolina has helped me to reconnect with my abdominal muscles hidden deep within. I am probably doing pilates with Karolina for about four years and my flexability has improved enormously and the wobble is long gone. It is gentle, but tough and you feel the results within weeks. As well as toning my abdominal muscles, my posture has improved and I will certainly never need a hip replacement if I keep it up. I attend a mixed level class and Karolina is able to challenge each of us at our level, talking us through the exercise and while we may be gritting our teeth at times, she is always smiling."
"After getting bored with the same workouts in the gym I decided too look for something different and decided to try Pilates. It took a little getting used to, using different muscles in different ways and sometimes being the only man in the class! After a few weeks I could really feel the difference. My back and posture felt stronger and my other main activities cycling and running seemed easier, I really could feel the benefit of a stronger core. I moved on from one mat class a week to one mat class and one reformer class per week. This really helped moving my fitness to a different level,
All of this would not have been possible with out Soul Pilates and Karolina. While it easy to start new activity, sticking with it is tougher. Karolina has been really supported, always encouraging and changing things up to keep it interesting and make it a little tougher each time. I look forward to every session."
