Kathleen holds a Master’s Degree in Cardiovascular Health and Exercise from Northeastern University and a BFA in Dance from the Boston Conservatory. Kathleen performed and taught modern dance in the Boston area. A lifelong lover of movement, Kathleen’s deep connection to yoga practice was awakened 3 years ago when she walked into a Down Under Yoga class. There she found a new passion for the mental and physical pursuit of yoga. Kathleen feels privileged to have recently graduated from the Down Under 200-hour Certification under the instruction of Natasha Rizopoulos, Kate Heffernan, and Michael Ponte. In addition to her Pilates practice, she continues to study and work towards teaching yoga classes.
Kathleen strongly believes that practicing Pilates can bring positive changes to her client’s bodies including strengthened abdominal and back muscles, improved alignment, increased flexibility and heightened body awareness. Kathleen teaches a challenging class that runs at a quick pace. Yet modifications are always provided and all levels are welcome.
Additionally, Kathleen is a Certified Holistic Health Coach from the Institute for Integrated Nutrition.
When not instructing or training, Kathleen enjoys living a healthy lifestyle, cycling, reading, creative vegetarian cooking and spending time with her family.
