After over thirty years of experience, Kathryn is still surprised at the common misconception that discomfort and immobility are a natural part of the aging process. “I have seen people of all ages, just come in, shrug their shoulders and say, I’m getting old”. Instead what Kathryn teaches in her group classes and more specifically in her private sessions is how a person can understand, be more aware and connected with their body. This allows for changes in imbalanced areas and lets clients move more completely, have more energy and feel better. These connections are empowering and give a person control which is a very important element of living and aging. This helps to create, A Happy Balance.

More About Kathryn

As a Registered Nurse Kathryn has worked in both clinical healthcare, as a Pediatric ICU Nurse, and in corporate healthcare, in the field of Risk Management. Kathryn attributes her eye for detail and love for educating to these experiences. In 1999, after working with Pilates privately for her back, she completed her Pilates certification from world-renowned Pilates Master, Rael Isacowitz (of BASI Pilates), and was subsequently asked by Rael to work at his studio. It is Rael’s incredible knowledge and precision that helped Kathryn further her skillset and hone in on her craft. In 2006, Kathryn became one of only 250 individuals worldwide to be Gold Certified by the Pilates Method Alliance. And because of the prevalence of bone density issues she obtained certification through Buff Bones. She is passionate about education, research and a holistic approach and passes this information onto her clientele. Working with seniors and those 50 years and above Kathryn focuses on physical alignment, functional movement, and wellness which all lead to, “A Happy Balance”.
