Liv Magazine - September 2018
We are very proud that Liv Magazine asked our very own Karen Leung about her approach to exercise and health for their September issue. It's easy to see why so many students fall in love with her class!
"Karen Leung of Mindful Pilates believes that setting realistic long-term goals is a key step towards developing a healthier relationship with
fitness. 'There’s a ‘fast food’ culture in exercise. People look for a short cut, jumping straight into difficult exercises while looking for that ‘burn’, without realising that they are at risk of injury. If students are truly looking for the health benefits of exercise, I believe they should focus more on the quality of their movements, rather than weight loss.'
Leung also believes that being honest about the motivation behind a new fitness regime is important. 'Is it truly for yourself, or is it because you care how others see you? The priority should be on mental and physical health, rather than looks.' "
