About the Owner
Originally from West Yorkshire, in 1999, Kate travelled to the South of England to study dance. To complement the rigorous dance training, she regularly attended Pilates sessions in a fully equipped Pilates studio, under the tutelage of a former National Ballet of Canada performer. This is when Kate really appreciated the benefits of Pilates and how it can help a person’s art, sport or everyday life.
After a few years performing and teaching dance, Kate trained at the Pilates Institute London and qualified as a Pilates Instructor. Kate began to teach Pilates in many different studios where she lived in Hertfordshire. Kate returned to the North in 2005 where she continued to deliver dance, fitness and Pilates classes in a variety of school, fitness studio and community settings.
She now has a wonderful family as well as continuing to deliver a high standard of Pilates sessions. Kate keeps up to date by attending training courses so that she is at the forefront of Pilates development. Her latest qualifications were with JPilates in London in 2018 and she continues attend Jpilates courses for CPD. Kate has an empathetic approach to delivering Pilates. After experiencing four surgeries herself she can appreciate the challenges of recovery and the ways that different circumstances can prohibit movement. This enables Kate to complement her Pilates ethos that listening to your body and moving well will aid recovery and improve every day life.
In 2018, Kate established Prominence Pilates Studios at 5a Railway Street, Cleckheaton.
Following 3 successful years the business moved to larger premises at 5 - 7 Albion Street, Cleckheaton, BD19 3JD
The instructors at Prominence Pilates Studios look forward to seeing you soon.
