Jane Paterson is a State Registered Nurse, Pilates Teacher and Pilates teacher trainer. She is a member of the Pilates Foundation and a member of the Royal Academy of Dance.
Jane was born in Australia, where she trained as a classical dancer with the Australian Ballet School prior to dancing and teaching professionally for five years. After sustaining a back injury, she first became aware of the Pilates technique and its benefits. Attending regular classes with Alan Herdman in London inspired Jane to train with him to become a Pilates teacher and develop an Open College Network Foundation Training Programme for Teachers of Pilates that has been successfully delivered in several centres.
