Kathryn worked closely with Romana for many years and was a Certified Romana’s Pilates Level 2 Trainer. She is the only woman to demonstrate on both the Romana’s Pilates Mat DVDs and the Legacy Series DVDs. Romana is quoted about Ms. Ross-Nash, saying “her work is like ice cream” and she is one of her best, her “Star of Stars.” Known throughout the industry for her purity and devotion to the work, Kathryn’s client list spans the entertainment industry. She was honored to be the first Pilates instructor to train the dancers of the Vaganova School in St. Petersburg Russia and has taught in Chile, Australia, Spain, Russia and throughout the United States. Kathryn was a principle dancer for ten years with Ballet Hispanico of NY, where she often returns to re-stage ballets. She is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and holds a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and an undefeated AAU sparring record. She serves as Chair of The Authentic Pilates Union, is an often-quoted expert and has been featured with Romana in Pilates Style Magazine as well as written articles for the magazine many times.

Her DVD Kathryn Ross-Nash New York Pilates, and book Fix Your Feet Using the Pilates Method are available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble online. “My favorite thing in the world is to be able to teach the work I believe in so strongly, as my teachers so generously gave it to me,” says Kathryn Ross-Nash.
