This is part of our Meet Our Visiting Instructor Series where you get to read about some of the visiting teachers and educators to our studio.
Meet Emily Odoire, BASI Pilates Faculty and Educator. Emily teaches on our BASI Comprehensive and Mat Teacher Training Courses, hosted in our studio here in Dublin.
What have you been up to recently?
In the last couple of months I have taught the BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training Course (CTTC) in London and Paris.
I also run a Pilates studio in Balham, London and enjoy the juggle of my two boys and French Bull dog, busy happy times!
How long have you been a Pilates teacher and what inspired you to become one?
I have taught for 17 years however practiced Pilates for 27 years ….my inspiration came when rehabbing during injury as a ballet dancer and I was stronger and more balanced after 6 months off with only doing Pilates in this period.
What’s your favourite Pilates exercise? Why?
That’s a tricky one I love so many, however every day I am inspired and challenged by the pelvic curl, this fundamental exercise gives me endless feedback to how my body feels that day and guides me to how I will complete the rest of my work out.
