Owner and Instructor
Our founder, Janie Duff-Jackson is passionate and dedicated to sharing her enthusiasm for the benefits of Pilates!
We are Lexington's premeire and only fully equipped Pilates studio offering qualified, comprehensive instruction in the downtown area.
Kate is originally from Nebraska and has recently relocated to the Bluegrass State. Kate has always loved being active. Her early years were spent climbing trees, riding horses, and running track.
As a horseback riding instructor, she developed a deep interest in core strength and posture, seeing the great benefits it gave her clients and their mounts. In her early twenties, health issues that weakened her body led her to Yoga and she became an instructor in 2015. This led to a deepened interest in mind-body connection. When she discovered Pilates, she describes it as "falling in love and finding my passion" all at once.
Kate both completed her STOTT Pilates training and taught in the Midwest before making the move to Lexington. She loves anatomy and physiology and sites her teaching style as a bit "yogi" at times, as she likes to slow things down and breathe deep. Kate's desire, as a Pilates instructor, is to create an experience during her lessons, where her client can feel calm, supported, present and thoroughly worked out.
One of her favorite things about being a Pilates instructor is helping her clients discover their own bodies in a new way, connect to their breath and celebrate with them as they reach their health and fitness goals.
We're dedicated to making various forms and levels of Pilates available to everyone. We teach on all apparatus and to every level of client, regardless of age, fitness level or other physical conditions that may be prohibitive in other forms of exercise.
We offer classes and private training that incorporate the Pilates principles of movement:
