Kate’s passion for movement began through the practice of gymnastics, where she competed and coached for many years. Through her gymnastics experiences, she understands the importance of good technique and control of movements.
She was introduced to Pilates through rehabilitation of a lower back injury. This not only aided her recovery but improved her body awareness and helped with muscle imbalances.
Exploring what the body is capable of fueled her to understand the human body further. Kate graduated with a Bachelor of Physical Education, majoring in Exercise Prescription and Professional Studies.
She then moved onto work at Sport Otago in the Green Prescription team, helping others increase their activity levels and facilitating exercise classes which included Pilates Classes for Caversham Physiotherapy.
After returning from her travels from the U.K, she is now continuing her studies to complete a Bachelor of Physiotherapy.
