“I started doing Pilates as a recommendation of my osteopath clinician. I have childhood scoliosis which requires constant maintenance and exercise. Usual routine exercise and gym classes do not suit me as a always end up having pain because of my back. I started attending classes with Live & Breathe in 2016 and since then, my life changed for the best. I reclaimed my exercise independence, I did not have to attend physio and osteopath sessions so often anymore and I gained control of my back and body back. I am such a happier person, my scoliosis condition is now more of a feature of my body than a burden, I feel with Pilates I can be healthy again. I have no words of gratitude for Steph and her team. After over 100 classes fear of back pain has vanished from my life. And what a posture I gained. Thank you!” Ana C, April 2018
“Just dropping you a line with some feedback on James’ class yesterday. Frankly, it was just super – the slightly slower pace meant I could really focus on alignment and flow and I feel very strong (not to mention great!) today as a result. Please thank him and ask him to keep up the good work.” Sharon R, January 2018
“I really cannot say enough positive things about Live & Breathe Pilates! I have been a fan of Pilates for many years but after moving to Dublin and trying several different gyms and private classes over the years I had fallen a little of out love with it. The team at Live & Breathe Pilates have definitely reignited the affair! The studio is so bright and welcoming with all of the most up to date equipment. The atmosphere is so lovely and friendly and the website so easy to navigate. The instructors are all fabulous and their commitment and enthusiasm really shines through in each and every class. Their genuine interest, personable approach and indivdualised attention to the client is what sets this studio apart. They all really do seem to live and breathe Pilates!” Louise C, August 2017
“I have been attending Pilates classes in Live & Breathe Pilates for the last 2 years or so which I find hugely beneficial. Last year, I heard about the new barre class sessions and had to give it a go. I wasn’t disappointed and have been a regular since. The classes are fun, usually set to cool beats, and are great for balance, posture and for building overall strength. Katrin makes the class really enjoyable, even though we are working hard! It’s the fastest hour of the week, I’m a fan,” Anne H, August 2017
“I’ve been attending Live & Breathe Pilates since 2014 for a mix of one-to-one and group classes. This is the best Pilates studio I’ve ever attended, with knowledgable and approachable instructors and state-of-the-art equipment. For the last 5 months, I have been attending weekly mat classes with James in the evenings, which I try to make every week. His classes are well-paced and his instructions are always very clear, and I always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. He explains what we’re doing and why we’re doing it, and in his mixed level classes he always offers variations to give options for people of all levels. When I attend regularly, I feel an improvement in my strength and posture with each week I attend. If I didn’t do Pilates on a regular basis, I think I would be in a lot of discomfort most of the time. Pilates makes a huge difference to me, and I would recommend Live & Breathe Pilates to anyone.” Hannah B, August 2017
“After suffering bad wear and tear on my back for the past couple of years I decided to give Live & Breathe Pilates a try. It is a really beautiful studio, very spacious and bright. I’ve been attending the Studio for 9 months now and try and do 2 classes a week.
One of the classes is with an instructor called Gigi. Gigi is a fantastic instructor, she mixes the exercises up each week, she explains the moves really clearly and her attention to alignment is excellent. She takes a personal interest in her clients and makes sure everyone is progressing. I never experienced this level of attention before in a group class. Gigi’s class is an hour long and she makes sure all parts of the body are worked and stretched. I find every class exciting and challenging.
As a result of the classes I feel my posture has improved, I am also getting more flexible and as a result I have more mobility in my back. The only regret I have is that I didn’t go years ago. Thank you so much Gigi for all the guidance and support.” Angela S, August 2017
“I’m so delighted Jessica recommended your studio to me. I feel so much better, I hardly know myself. I’m no longer in daily pain and able to enjoy the simple things like touching my toes, or standing for more than 10 minutes a time. I feel so much stronger and a great deal of that is to do with all your instructors – I felt safe yet challenged at all times during my rehabilitation and I’m tremendously grateful for the professionalism and care that everyone has shown me. From one-to-ones, duets and now the group classes I’m thrilled with my progress.
I’m looking forward to a really productive and energetic 2017 which would have been an impossible outlook for me only 12 months ago.
Thank you so much.” Emma J, January 2017
“I kept meaning to thank you for the push to squeeze in more classes – turns out it was exactly what I needed, and I have been feeling much better thanks to more classes! (I know this shouldn’t be surprising!) I had got caught up in work, but really felt the benefit after just a week of regular classes, and definitely what I needed in the lead up to Christmas.
You have a fab studio and classes. I have tried a few studios, both yoga and Pilates, before I found you and really feel like I’ve found my home. So thanks you to you, and all the instructors, particularly Andrea and Katrin, for creating a lovely welcoming atmosphere, and really effective classes, while still great fun!
Already looking forward to classes in 2017.” Rachel D, December 2016
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Katrin for the prenatal Pilates classes I attended! My baby boy was born on the 21st May and I found the Pilates knowledge I had gained in Katrin’s class invaluable during labour and delivery.” Ita L, June 2016
“Thanks so much to you all for keeping me strong and mobile during the pregnancy, all the Pilates really kept me going. I really can’t thank you all enough.” Edel H, Aug 2016
