Helen Cohan - Pilates Instructor

I have been practicing Pilates for nearly 16 years, taking it up not long after the birth of my second child, to regain my fitness, core stability and flexibility. I loved it so much that I decided to re-train as a Stotts Pilates Instructor, and have now been qualified, both in matwork and reformer for 11 years. I have since taken pre and postnatal, Pilates on the Green, back care and shoulder stability courses. Pilates is a good fit for me as previously I had trained as an Exercise to Music instructor qualifying me to teach aerobics and was enrolled in Ballet classses from the age of 3 to my early twenties. Pilates is a great form of exercise that can be taken up by all age groups and sexes and is fantastic for rehab too.
