We believe that Pilates is for EVERYBODY. And can benefit EVERYBODY.
I first discovered Pilates when living in Sydney and, like so many people, whilst suffering from back pain. At the time I was working in the corporate world, spending too many hours at a desk and then pounding the pavements at the weekend!
I had always been sporty but really had very little understanding of how my body works and how best to look after it. Pilates introduced me to the idea that, predominantly as a result of our lifestyles today, most of us don’t use our bodies the way that they were so brilliantly designed to be used. The back injury was my wake up call as was a twin pregnancy not long afterwards!
I continued to practice Pilates throughout my pregnancy and returned as soon as I could after having twin girls. A short while later I began my year long training to qualify as an instructor and thereafter I taught in a few studios in Sydney, always with a long term aim of opening my own studio in Dublin.
This became reality in the summer of 2011 when I opened the doors to Reform Pilates in Blackrock. Reform now comprises a team of expert instructors with diverse experience from all over the world who all share the same passion for what we do.
We have been in the same space ever since offering classes for everybody in the local community. Now with online classes our community has grown enabling us to bring our style of teaching to the world!
