Cath started her Pilates and breast cancer training in Oxford in 2008.  She soon wanted to expand her knowledge to help more women, so enrolled on the first ever Pink Ribbon course delivered by the found - Doreen Puglisi.

The course fascinating, and as theses things happen, we welcomed my first post-rehab lady into my studio not long after.  I furthered the depth and understanding of the effect of the disease on the body by attending the (again inaugural) full certification of the Pink Ribbon Programme. Cath from Experience Pilates was the first in the North West of England to qualify with this prestigious certificate.
