Masterclass Workshops

A series of Masterclass Workshops are held at The Hen House Studio, Kingsbridge on Tuesdays.
The next Masterclass Workshop – Next Date to be Confirmed
Ultimate Stretch & Release

This session will include release work, gentle & dynamic stretching and relaxation. Allow your body to relax by letting go of tension with these powerful techniques.

Care for your Back

In this session we will look at the different types of posture. Karen will then help you to analyse your own posture to give you a better understanding of how it may be improved to support your back. After some release work on the hips and pelvis, we will work through a series of simple exercises, which support the back and some gentle stretches to elongate the back and give it greater flexibility. To quote the great Joseph Pilates, “You are as old as your spine”.

There will be an element of working with a partner.

Release, Relax & Rejuvenate

Karen will take you through a series of gentle release work. Including some stretching, breathing and work on the myofascial release ball. The session will end with a guided meditation aimed at complete relaxation.

Myofascial Release Part 1 & 2

Fascia has been described as spiderweb like fibres that surround every muscle, tendon, ligament and cell in our bodies. Some call it Connective Tissue, but it is more than that. Through the activities of our daily lives this fascia can be put under strain or tension particularly if we experience any emotional or physical trauma. The fascia may then tighten or harden around the area of

trauma and if it is never released will continue to tighten around the tissue until a painful condition is felt. Fascia responds quickly and easily to gentle pressure and breathing techniques. Using a specifically designed ball to create gentle pressure we will release the fascia through a technique called Myofascial Release.

Part 1 will concentrate on releasing the fascia around the pelvis, backs of the legs, bottom, back, shoulders and neck.

Part 2 will concentrate on releasing the fascia around the arms, lower legs and front of the body.

Both classes will involve an element of balance and supporting yourself with your own body strength, but nothing more strenuous than a Pilates class. Part 2 will require participants to work in pairs.


A combination of Pilates and Yoga designed to help you Stretch, Breath and Relax, whilst improving your Core Strength, Flexibility and Balance.

Breath, Stretch & Relax

Come and unwind, stretch, work your core muscles and relax. The workshop will include a combination of Release Work, Breathing Techniques, Facial Yoga, Yoga Stretching, Pilates and Relaxation/Meditation.

“I have been attending Karen’s pilates classes for seven years. She is an inspiring and thoughtful teacher, with a natural ability to communicate with a class of varying ages and capabilities. I continue to enjoy her sessions very much.”

– Sue Edwards, Paignton –

“Karen’s tone and approach to teaching provides a great experience for every member of the class. Her directions are clear, she encourages and gives individual attention to each member during the exercises. She manages the class at a pace that suits varied levels of experience and ability and creates a relaxed and supportive environment. I always feel better after the class than when I started! She says, ‘Do what you can and rest when you need’ and we do….there is no competition. Never boring – there are always new challenges!”

– Jackie Jardine, Kingsbridge –

“Love the combination of stretches and toning exercises. I am so much more flexible…and taller! Friends noticed an improvement in my posture after just a few months. After classes I always feel relaxed and more clear headed. When I overdo the gardening my lower back recovers faster My upper body is stronger. Pilates tones – taking off inches. There is such a sense of accomplishment when you make progress.”

– Jackie Jardine, Kingsbridge –

“Having attended Karen’s classes for three years I can’t believe the change in my mobility, strength and flexibility.  Karen immediately puts you at ease and makes her class informative and enjoyable whist tailoring to individuals.  Her calming voice and peaceful meditations are easy to follow and have a most desirable effect before and at the end of some of her classes.  I am so grateful and pleased I came across Karen with her unique talent for inspiration and encouragement.”
