As so many before her, Katie Alderson discovered Pilates as a tool for healing. She was bedridden most of her childhood and into her young adult life battling a persistent Lyme disease infection. She underwent multiple surgeries losing internal organs and endured years of intensive antibiotic treatment leaving her even sicker than the disease itself. Pilates became the catalyst in this healing process; a low impact means to regain her strength and return to an active and normal lifestyle. The results were so surprisingly effective that she has now dedicated her life to sharing her knowledge and passion for Pilates with others. Katie is NPCP certified, FMT Mobility Specialist Certified, TRX Suspension Training certified, Barre Above certified and has her comprehensive certification through Club Pilates. She now spends her days pursuing Pilates in every manner and striving to master the method.
