About

The Studio

Our mind shapes our bodies and working-out in tune with your mind and breath has countless benefits. This is your space to empower your best you through movement and feel the energy from inside. Movement heals and I’d like you to  feel well more often, let’s inspire this in each other every day of your lives.

 

At b-well Pilates you will notice your body gradually becoming stronger, more flexible and better balanced. I like you to feel well from the moment you enter the studio, during your practice and beyond, so that we create long lasting energy and wellbeing. You can expect to be challenged and feel every muscle of your body working although you’ll never be pushed into something you don’t feel ready for. The studio philosophy is to condition the bodies so that we can do better what we LOVE and this will have such an impact that even the things you don’t love doing will become easier. 

 

Every body and mind is unique though (isn’t beautiful?) and b-Well Pilates will help you thrive regardless of your level of fitness or hobbies. 

 You will leave the studio feeling stronger, more flexible (in your mind too) renewed and a few inches taller!

About Me

Pint-sized Pilates teacher with tons of knowledge and experience who is passionate about guiding you to be your best you – that’s me.

 

Originally from Argentina, my love of travelling, a degree in Tourism and a variety of airlines jobs led me to this special island on the other side of the world where I put down roots in 2003. A recent dig around into my ancestors’ DNA may provide a clue. I’m delighted to say I’m 18% Irish.  So now you’re definitely stuck with me and my family. 

 

The youngest of three, what a disappointment to my mum that her only girl turned out to be an ebullient tomboy who couldn’t rest for a moment. Not even in my sleep! On waking me in the mornings she was greeted by my feet on my pillow. :O)

 

As I grew up, nature became my playground and I’d often be found hanging upside down in a tree.

 

Put that together with my innate curiosity about trying new things and you have a teacher qualified in many areas – pelvic floor, pre and post-natal Yoga and Pilates, Reformers and big Pilates apparatus. Seriously you’ve got to try the Big Boys. There’s probably a reason why mine is the only studio in the wider area to offer them. But I digress.

 

My journey to being here today as a Pilates teacher – on the mat, on the Reformer, on your rehabilitation to a new you – has been a long one.

FAQ’s 

Most frequent questions and answers

Pilates is a mind-body practice that strengthens the core muscles, promotes flexibility and mobility and enhances coordination. As a fitness practice it has well rounded benefits and offers many different variations.  It is largely known by its multiple uses in rehab, sports injuries and injury 

prevention and reducing chronic pain. Although the pace and repertoire can vary it is a mindful practice as you need to synchronize breathing and movement to get the maximum benefit and this is why it also helps improving sport performance and mental focus.

Yes, there are Foundations, Intermediate and Advance classes

Yes. If you haven’t done Pilates before I recommend that you start with a Foundation Reformer set of classes  or 1:1. Ideally, you should be doing both Mat and Reformer classes as they compliment each other beautifully

It is always advisable that you have the clear to go from your physiotherapist or GP before joining any type of exercise. Most people find Pilates very useful for injury prevention and injury recovery.

The first session on the Reformer is to get you to know the machine and teach you the basics moving patterns.. If you are completely new to Pilates and you join a Foundation class we’ll go through the principles of Pilates alignment and breathing too.

How To Start with Reformer Pilates

One size doesn’t fit all and I’m thankful for that! It means our bodies and minds are unique. On top of we all having different genetics and cultural traits, we move differently and we hold tension in different parts of the body too. It goes without saying that your Pilates journey will also be a unique experience. If you are completely new to Pilates I’d recommend starting either with a block of 5 Reformer Foundation classes or a 1:1 to have a short assessment and decide which class will suit better. If you have been doing Pilates for a while and wish to try the Reformer you can get a pack and use the few classes for Foundation. You can then move a level up once you are familiar with the use of the machines. Remember if you had a recent injury you should have the clear to exercise first. There are semi-private Pilates sessions using other studio equipment that can be really beneficial for you if you are in the process of rehab or wish to work specifically in injury prevention (for example if you play a particular sport)
