Karen Lim

Barre 2 Barre Founder

Certified BarreAmped Master Trainer

Manager, BarreAmped Asia

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 was exposed to 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. But she discovered that she enjoyed teaching and has not stopped since. She loves working with students and showing them how their bodies can benefit from proper alignment. She has been teaching for over eight years and finds joy in seeing the positive change, not just in their bodies but also in their outlook, as they get stronger and more flexible with each class.

Each day she enjoys the blessings of wonderful family and friends. She also loves good food and wine, reading, baking, and hiking.
