Grace is a regular visitor to our studio in Dublin and teaches Mat and Comprehensive Programs for us.
What have you been up to recently?
I have recently returned from presenting at ‘Momentum Fest’ in Denver, CO. Momentum Fest is a Pilates festival, where everyone gets together to share their passion, and it was just so much fun.
How long have you been a Pilates teacher and what inspired you to become one?
I have been a Pilates teacher for 9 years, and started practising 20 years ago as part of my ballet training. I am afraid that I am the stereotypical ballet dancer turned Pilates instructor, so there was never a ‘light bulb’ moment of inspiration to transition from dance to Pilates. It has been part of my life since I was 11 years old, and really can’t imagine doing anything else. I feel grateful for Pilates every day.
What’s your favourite Pilates exercise? Why?
Such a hard question! I would have to say Semi-Circle – delish!
