Karen Lim | Barre 2 Barre
As a former finance professional and like many working in a high-stress environment, Karen suffered from lower back and shoulder issues. It was then that she experienced the amazing physical and mental benefits of barre and Pilates. Initially, she took the teacher training courses for her own benefit-to deepen her knowledge and improve her practice. During this time, she discovered her love for teaching and has been teaching for over seven years. She loves working with her students and showing them how their bodies can benefit from proper alignment. She is most happy when she sees the positive change, not just in their bodies but also in their outlook, as they get stronger and more flexible with each class. She is thankful for the blessings of a wonderful family and friends. She also loves good food and wine, reading, baking, and hiking
