About Kathy

Kathy had been practising Pilates for more than 20 years when she took early retirement from the NHS, where she had been working as a qualified Nurse and Health Visitor. She decided to take this opportunity to train as a Pilates instructor and qualified as a Level 3 Matwork Pilates teacher with Body Control Pilates.

This qualification sits at Level 3 in the National Qualifications Framework (Advanced Instructor). BCP training is the most comprehensive of its kind in the world and is widely regarded as an international benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality. All teachers adhere to a Code of Practice that governs teaching standards and professional ethics. Kathy attends regular training and updates to maintain her professional standards and education.

Kathy is a qualified children's Pilates teacher and currently enjoys teaching a weekly voluntary class at Puddletown Preschool.

Kathy’s most recent training has been with Body Control Pilates, where she successfully undertook training in Intermediate Matwork Pilates and Pilates with a Foam Roller, adding up-to-date and new challenges to her classes.
