Katy DigbyPilates Instructor
My background has always been sport and following a serious knee injury I was inspired to study Sports Therapy. I graduated with a degree in 2005, qualifying me to diagnose and treat injuries, implement rehabilitation programmes, as well as sports massage and stretching techniques.
Sports Therapy led me to Pilates and I found that in conjunction with their sports therapy treatment, I was consistently referring clients to Pilates to help with their rehabilitation. I wanted to further my own knowledge in this area, so in March 2010 I qualified as a Level 3 instructor.
Since qualifying I have been teaching one-to-one sessions and using the principles of Pilates and Pilates based exercises as an integral part of many of my patients rehabilitation and their return to sport, or comfortable pain free everyday living. Therefore, I have seen first hand how valuable and positive Pilates is, and can be, for each individual.
I first met Claire nearly a year ago just after I had qualified as an instructor. For nearly a year I have been attending classes twice weekly of varied ability at the Power of Pilates studio gaining experience of teaching group classes. Pilates here is individual, sessions are intimate with small class numbers and tailored to everyone’s needs. I’m looking forward to continuing this ethos which is Power of Pilates.
