Kat's teaching has helped me enormously - I would still be hobbling around on painkillers if it wasn't for her. I can't recommend Kajoma Studio enough.
I've done lots of classes/private lessons in the past but it's never been like Kat Pilates! I think even if my head was falling off I'd still trust you to figure out a safe and helpful Pilates lesson! Anyway, I just thought I'd say I think you're amazing!

We joined the 50s and Up class as beginners and greatly appreciated both the small class size and the structured nature of the exercises each week.
Every class was different and well prepared. We feel so much fitter as a result.

I have been attending classes at Kajoma studios for many months, and have enjoyed the benefits of regular pilates sessions, including increased strength and flexibility, and postpartum recovery. Kat is a fantastic teacher and the studios is a great place to come to. The class sizes are small and that's a great thing!
I have found the pilates class offered by Kajoma studios very useful in helping with various health issues.
I couldn't recommend Kajoma Studio highly enough. It's amazing what one session of Pilates a week can do for your strength and flexibility.
Kajoma Studio has been a god send to me and my health!
Kathryn helps me with problems I have for my back and hips following on from a recent hip replacement. I have struggled with what is available locally within the NHS and now feel that at last there is some progress.
Kajoma studio is brilliant. Never done Pilates before so I was very nervous. Kat made me feel at home & the small classes are brilliant to ensure that you are doing Pilates correctly. Highly recommend Kajoma studio & Kat. Can’t wait to start back up in June.
I’d never done Pilates and am as flexible as a plank but Kat made me feel completely welcome and at ease from the start. She is encouraging and supportive and creates a warm, friendly and non-judgmental atmosphere. Having small classes is brilliant as Kat can provide each participant with personalised support and feeling part of a small group makes it more enjoyable. The studio is wonderful: light, airy, warm and with a lovely view. In a word: perfect!
I Joined Kat's class with friends (safety in numbers: was a bit scared!) to banish shin splints and get back out running but it turns out that I love Pilates too! Great personalised tuition, friendly atmosphere, lovely studio, a great workout every week with a different focus each time and a laugh too. Stomach hasn't shrunk (but then nor has my appetite) but I am now better at holding it in. And the shin splints seem to be better too. Couldn't recommend Kat enough.

After having my second baby Kat worked with me to help build my strength back. I had Diastasis and found the Pilates lessons really helped me to recover quickly. Kat is a very patient, fun and hands on teacher. She talks through each movement, explains why you are doing it and the benefits. Teaching me how to practice Pilates exercises myself at home with the correct alignment. I feel great after every class and would recommend her to anyone looking to start or progress with the Pilates method.
Our clients tell me you will be missed but not forgotten! You taught classes beautifully.
It is extremely rare to find a combination of such dedication and a generous heart in an instructor these days.

'I started with Kat after not having done Pilates for a while. She was very patient and tailored lessons to suit my needs and weak areas. I felt stronger within a couple of lessons and after a month I was able to do more, and really noticed a difference. I loved Kat's enthusiasm and her positivity, and I looked forward to each lesson with her.'
Kat is a very thorough and knowledgeable Pilates instructor. Having had 3 c-sections she helped me strengthen my core tremendously, as I found that difficult previously, as I used to get a sore neck doing abdominal exercises. Kat is very relaxed and flexible and seems to know exactly how hard to push you. I noticed such a huge change in my strength and flexibility within a very short time with Kat. I really enjoyed my sessions with her and would highly recommend Kajoma Studio and Kat.
I couldn't recommend Kajoma studio enough, The studio is bright, modern and well equipped with beautiful views of Northumberland, Kat is a fantastic instructor who draws on her years of experience to provide a dedicated and professional approach to her classes making clients feel comfortable and relaxed. Small class sizes provide a personal and more tailored client experience that caters for all ages and abilities, i look forward to my Pilates class every week.'
'Just had my first Pilates class with Kat. It was fantastic! Kat is such a great instructor, very patient when explaining each move. I found the class so relaxing and I feel so invigorated after it and already can't wait for the next session! It's a real bonus that Kajoma is located in such an idyllic setting, really can't recommend these classes highly enough.'
Kat is an excellent Pilates teacher. I have taken Pilates before, but I felt that Kat was able to tailor the class to really help me and make me stronger and more fit. She is patient and very knowledgable. Kat really helped me to fall in love with Pilates.
Loved my Pilates class, Kat was very knowledgeable and was able to adapt the class to suit my requirements. Would definitely recommend!
