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.
Upon discovering Pilates during college in Boston and barre at the Lotte Berk Studio while working in London, Mylene has always been a student of movement and after a successful career working internationally, specializing in sales and marketing for luxury hotels, her healthy hobby soon developed into a passion for mind-body wellness and eventually her second career.
