Kathryn Brannan - Owner/Instructor
Kathryn was first introduced to Pilates while obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Dance at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2001. As a Creative and Performing Art Scholar, a simple pre-rehearsal introductory mat class turned into a life-long passion. Discovering how Pilates could increase strength and stamina while simultaneously improving flexibility, Kathryn turned away from the typical gym routine and turned to the reformer!
Kathryn was certified in 2003 as a Classical Pilates instructor under the guidance and validation of Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph H. Pilates' protegee. Upon completion of the 700 hour certification program, she began teaching at the Center for Pilates, LLC. As one of the few classically trained instructors in the central New Jersey area, Kathryn has had the privilege of working with a full spectrum of clientele, from busy moms and elite athletes, to those rehabilitating from serious injury or replacement surgery.
After teaching for seven years, Kathryn was ecstatic to take over the role as owner of what is now the Center for Pilates of Red Bank, LLC. Her devotion to her clients drives her to maintain the welcoming, encouraging, non-competetive environment of the studio. Kathryn strives to give each client a comprehensive, invigorating workout in the manner that Joseph Pilates intended.
