Mich Piazza

 
Having trained in various forms of dance as a child and teenager, Mich discovered yoga after abandoning dance due to a back injury following a car accident. She was immediately attracted to its balance of mind, body and spirit and marvelled at the healing effects yoga had on her constant back pain.

During her yoga journey, Mich found herself attracted to the grace and precision of Pilates, in particular its focus on spinal alignment and the building of a strong, healthy core to help heal and alleviate back injuries.
 
Within a short of while of regular Pilates practice, all those remaining back pains from the car accident began to vanish until eventually she was pain-free. As a result, Mich became a devotee of the Pilates method and immediately after completing her yoga instructor training, trained to teach Pilates.
 
Mich has also trained in Pre and Post Natal Pilates, Pilates for Osteoporosis, Pilates for Spinal Injuries, Pilates with Props, Level 3 Advanced Matwork and Reformer 1 & 2.
 
In January 2013 she trained in BarreConcept which she found to be the perfect blend of all her great loves in life--ballet, yoga and Pilates. She went on to complete several other ballet barre training courses, including Pilates at the Barre.

Mich is also a qualified massage therapist, a Zumba Fitness Instructor and recently qualified in Pole Dance Fitness. She won the title of Pole Dance Ireland Princess 2015.
