Karen Beer (Physiotherapist)

My Journey So Far... Prior to qualifying at King's College University of London in 2007, I completed modified Pilates mat work and instructor courses with the Australian Pilates Physiotherapy Institute at Hemelhempsted London Studio. Since then I have used the techniques in hospital and community settings to help those with core stability/musculoskeletal and neurological complaints to re-balance posture and movement control.

Following a period of time working for Kent's Urogynae physiotherapy team I gained an interest in improving the core stability of the pelvic/lower back region to help those with postural/muscle strength changes as a result of pregnancy - then I trained as a FitBack&Bumps instructor, to bring valuable education and exercise to all those who want it most. Combining cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), movement control/balance, cardio and relaxation exercise is now my focus to ensure you gain a healthy body, mind and soul.

I have witnessed the benefits of this approach for all ages, including young children in Indian children's centres via group or one to one sessions.
