Kate received her Pilates certification in June 2016 from Drexel Pilates- a 450 hour comprehensive training program including mat, mixed equipment, and reformer exercises under the direction of Jennifer Morley. Kate holds a BFA in dance from Mount Holyoke College, and was always intrigued by Pilates and it’s benefits throughout her college career. After breaking her foot while stepping off a curb, Kate turned to Pilates for a practice in moving mindfully and efficiently, which she now incorporates into her everyday life as well as her dancing. Kate teaches both mat classes and private sessions, encouraging her students to take up space while maintaining Pilates principles and to embrace challenging movement with humor and optimism.
