Anna is the owner of Pilates Centre. Classical Pilates is her passion and she trained intensively with The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado, to learn from the best instructors in the world, completing the Advanced Teacher Training programme and the Masters programme. She also heads up the Classical Teacher Training programme at our Clontarf studio. Previous to this Anna trained in comprehensive Pilates with the Pilates Institute and Balanced Body. She holds a BA Hons Degree in Theatre and Dance from London Studio Centre and it was during her dance training that she was first introduced to Pilates. Anna loves working with a diverse client base and has lots of experience working with Pilates newbies, athletes, dancers, injuries, pre and post natal clients.
Catrina first found Pilates when she used it to compliment her sports and GAA training, diminishing injuries bothering her and then preventing further injury. Catrina brings energy and expertise to all of her classes. She is currently finishing her final year of her post grad in Physiotherapy in Trinity College Dublin and holds a BA Hons in Sports Science. She therefore has a fantastic working knowledge of the human body to support her Classical Pilates training with Pilates Centre.

She decided to train up as an instructor having been a practicing Pilates addict for many years. Fiona knows the commitment it takes to really embody the Pilates method and looks forward helping you achieve the same results. She is delighted to now have a new rewarding career alongside her other very successful career as a pharmacist.
Marianna trained extensively in Classical Pilates with us here at Pilates Centre, as well as workshops with international instructors that inspire her. Previous to this she certified as a Pilates instructor with Stott Pilates. Marianna has a passion for wellness and teaching. She fell in love with Pilates almost a decade ago, when she started training under the guidance of PMA instructors. She has studied some contemporary Pilates approaches but it's the Classical Pilates Method that drives her teaching and practice.

"I used to suffer from back, shoulder and neck pain on and off as a result of a minor car accident, the muscles never really recovered. However since I started doing Pilates I notice my back, shoulder and neck muscles are so much stronger than previously, I could really tell a difference after 5 or 6 classes. It’s been fantastic."
