Born in Hong Kong and raised in Santa Barbara California, Kathleen holds a BA in Business Economics from UCLA. An avid dancer throughout her childhood, Kathleen began to incorporate Pilates into her training while at University. Through career changes from finance to fashion and returning to Hong Kong, Pilates remained a large part of her life. Kathleen began her instructor training in early 2008 first in Mat, then in the Allegro Reformer and Studio courses. The more she learned, the more she realized her true passion for Pilates. Kathleen is a Polestar Certified Mat, Allegro Reformer and Studio Instructor. Her goal is to promote a healthy mind-body connection that improves the quality of life for all of her students. The benefits of Pilates are consistently experienced by participants in her dynamic, uplifting and challenging group classes.
