Pilates Instructor Dublin
All our Pilates Instructors are Chartered Physiotherapists and are APPI trained pilates instructors.(Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) which has modified the original exercises created by Joseph Pilates and made them suitable for people with clinical conditions such as neck, lower back, shoulder pain and a multitude of other musculoskeletal conditions. These exercises focus on targeting the deep stabilizing muscles of the abdomen and spine which are often weak in people with lower back and neck pain. The buttock and shoulder girdle muscles are also targeted which help to improve pelvic and shoulder stability.
