Pilates group photo in Jakarta2002-2007:  Kat moved overseas to Asia to train locals to become Pilates Teachers. She was brought in by the family of the (then) Malaysian Prime Minister. She worked in Kuala Lumpur (MY) and Jakarta (IND).  At this time, Pilates was virtually unheard of in Southeast Asia. She introduced the first international level programs of Pilates Teacher-Training & Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) techniques to these regions. Producing great teachers in Asia is the biggest accomplishment of her life and the one she is the proudest of. She gave her apprentices a true vocation, that they could take anywhere. Her last overseas adventure in 2006 took her to Teach-Teachers in regions of Spain. She keeps in contact with many of her students and is extremely proud of all that they have gone on to accomplish.
