Elaine was originally a dinghy sailor in her teens and in her twenties. She represented UCD in their team racing events. Core strength, balance and flexibility are essential for competitive sailing and as a result, Elaine developed an interest in this area and qualified as a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor.
During her classes, Elaine focuses on assisting each client with their body awareness and movement patterns. Elaine likes to challenge clients in a supportive manner and exercises are modified to meet the needs of the individual. Various props are used, including resistance rings, soft Pilates balls and flexibands. Elaine provides mat classes to all levels, as well as Pre and Post Natal classes, flexion free classes (for those with certain physical conditions), Barre and Pilates on the Reformer (private classes).
STOTT PILATES is recognised worldwide. It builds on the principles of the late Joseph Pilates work by incorporating more up to date knowledge about the body. The aim is optimal musculoskeletal performance (i.e. strength, flexibility and endurance). This method of exercise helps restore the natural curves of the spine and relieve tension. Above all, classes are designed be enjoyable and leave clients feeling rejuvenated.
