The excellent verbal cueing provided by Kathy makes my on-line workout as challenging (if not more so) than my in-studio workouts.

I have been going to Pure Pilates for over five years and my instructor is Kathy. She is the most patient and kind person, and of course, super knowledgeable. I have had three orthopedic surgeries in the time I have worked with Kathy, and she has always modified my program to meet my needs at the time. I have always appreciated her positive and encouraging words when at times I was frustrated by various health issues. I am so grateful to have put in my pilates hours with Kathy, because working my core has been good for both my mind and my body. I also enjoy my conversations with Kathy as I am working out. We both love to read and watch tv, so we pass suggestions back and forth to each other. I highly recommend Kathy at Pure Pilates. She is a true gem and is my pilates instructor and friend.

As you know, I was moved to tears when you first told me that the Pink Ribbon sessions were for women like me - survivors. I didn't expect it and your generosity was so touching it moved me. So, first let me say a profound thank you. I didn't know what to expect from Pilates outside of the fact I was told I needed to take classes. In every session, my instructor Kathy, provided in depth explanations and watched over my every move. Her attention to detail, carefully watching and making adjustments as I moved through the movement was comforting, and kept me focused. It's not always easy to tell if one is improving, but Kathy has assured me that I've improved since my first class and I can say unequivocally, I feel better and am more aware of my posture. Thank you for having a program like Pink Ribbon. It's wonderful and set me up for my continued private lessons with Kathy. I look forward to my 2x/week sessions as it affords me an opportunity to shut out the outside noise, breathe and align my mind and body.

Katie is an amazing Pilates instructor. As a former dancer, Katie’s classes are beautifully choreographed flowing from one exercise to the next. Her classes are creative and interesting and even after 6 yrs of twice weekly classes, there’s always something new. Throughout her class, Katie watches all her students and gently corrects exactly what’s needed to get the most out of the exercise. And on top of all her expertise, Katie is a sweet and caring and a truly lovely person.

Katie is a passionate mover who was brought to Pilates through dance. After a professional dance career, Katie discovered her love of teaching-connecting the mind and body, and working with students of all ages and levels. Her appreciation and understanding of everyone’s ever changing body and needs only became greater as her own body went through pre and post natal stages, an experience which has helped Katie navigate problem solving, and bring a freshness to each session making them feel personal and specific to each body’s needs. Her sessions are full of flow and aim to challenge clients with a sense of comfort, and often a little humor, all of which she has brought to Pure Pilates since 2016. Katie thinks the gift of movement and self care is one of the best things one can do for overall wellness, and is thrilled to seek and fulfill milestones and goals with each of her clients. When she’s not at the studio, Katie is taking care of her three little humans- another job that also makes her smile, laugh, and challenges her on the daily.
Eighteen years ago I discovered my love for Pilates. After having my two children, I felt the need to move my body again. At the time I was living in North Carolina, and worked through many different exercise and training programs. I discovered Pilates, and instantly knew it was right for me. Forteen years later, and a move to New Jersey, I decided to share my love of Pilates with other people looking for some way to move their bodies. Pilates has also been a way for me to keep me strong and flexible to continue many activities. My family loves to be active, and I often find when we are all together (mostly vacations) our days consist of activity and movement such as hiking, kayaking, or skiing(more on this later). As I have gotten older I find it even more imperative now that I keep my body strong. Recently I was in a skiing accident that left me with many knee injuries and ultimately having to go into surgery. I found being able to do light Pilates a few weeks after surgery kept me sane and ultimately helped with recovery time. Pilates has not only helped me be able to keep up with my children, but has also provided me with a body that is able to function at peak performance. My approach to Pilates can be described in one, simple word: movement. Movement can help you, both physically and mentally. Movement, and Pilates, is ultimately about self care. Having a built in time to focus on your body and movement can help relieve yourself of feeling tired, anxious, and stressed. Movement awakens you. Even after one session you can leave feeling calmer and energized.
Enjoyment of life through movement is a vital part of Kathy’s philosophy. When not in the studio she leads an active lifestyle trail running, cycling, skiing and hiking. She also loves connecting with people while traveling with family and friends. One of her favorite cycling trips was riding along the coast of northern California. Learning new things and sharing knowledge is also important to Kathy. She has a passion for food, likes to cook for her family and experiment with new recipes. She is currently trying to achieve the perfect pizza. She is also an avid reader of historical fiction and biographies. Her latest endeavor is learning to play golf.
