About Apollo Pilates
Apollo is the Greek God of healing and at Apollo Pilates we subscribe to the philosophy laid down by Joseph Pilates that "Change happens through movement and movement heals.". Founded by Amy Micheal, we want to make Pilates an essential part of one's lifestyle, to stay strong and healthy no matter what your age or fitness levels. We know that the practice builds core strength and flexibility, but can be used as part of a rehab plan to get back mobility and relieve pain. Or just to get oneself moving if we have become a little sedentary through bad habits.
We will work with you to build a personal programme tailored to help you achieve your goals and get the most from Pilates. Not to mention have fun!
Amy began practicing Pilates at the behest of her osteopath for rehabilitation after major injury and to manage chronic pain. It made such an incredible impact, that she was inspired to give up her media career of 20 years and retrain to become an instructor. Qualified in both reformer and mat Pilates, she can offer a multi-discipline approach to build the best sessions for you. Empathetic in practice, with a knack for getting more out of you than you think is possible, Amy will help you achieve your fitness goals and overcome injury to get back to being fabulous.
She has been trained to the international gold standards of Stott for advanced Pilates and APPI Ante and Post Natal activity.
