Katie was introduced to Pilates when visiting family members in Bakersfield . She loved taking classes alongside her stepmom and grandma… three generations of women who could all be challenged and find benefits from the same class.
She initially joined Club Pilates San Luis Obispo in a part time sales role, but quickly grew to assistant manager, then to general manager. Katie completed her comprehensive teacher training in 2021 and now also teaches group and private classes in San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles.
Katie’s favorite Pilates move is mermaid. After working as a cosmetologist for 10 years and standing all day in awkward positions or working behind a computer for hours at a time, she loves the release and length she feels in her spine after the deep lateral flexion she gets doing mermaid.
Katie lives by the mantra of ‘Wake up, kick ass, be kind, repeat’! The positive impact that Pilates has on our members' life never ceases to amaze her. Watching people's quality of life change so drastically both mentally and physically is her best feeling in the world.
