About Karen

Karen qualified with the Pilates Foundation as a matwork teacher in October 2010 and then as an apparatus teacher in November 2018.

She runs her fully equipped studio in the southside of Glasgow offering matwork classes, private 1-1/1-2 classes and open studio sessions.

The studio name Brigh (pronounced bree) is Scottish Gaelic and has several meanings appropriate for Pilates - strength, energy, substance, moment, significance, point, essence and sense.

Having practised Pilates extensively for over ten years prior to commencing the matwork teacher training course at Brigid McCarthy Pilates Studio in Edinburgh, she had experienced the positive effects of Pilates on her own body, including during pregnancy and post-natally, and is passionate about helping others discover the benefits of Pilates.

Karen completed a post graduate certification in Prenatal and Postnatal Pilates with Rachel Rafiefar, a specialist Pilates for pregnancy teacher trainer.

Karen also completed the Universal Reformer teacher training course with Brigid McCarthy.

She is a 3rd generation Pilates teacher having qualified as a comprehensive teacher from Lolita’s Legacy in March 2018.

Karen qualified from the Pilates Foundation bridging (apparatus) teacher training at Vanessa Smith Pilates in November 2018.

In addition Karen regularly attends CPD workshops and courses.

Karen is a member of the Guild of Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Instructors.
