Holywood Pilates was established in 2010 by
Dr Lorraine Maxwell (DPhil) who has 20 years clinical Physiotherapy experience as well as being a fully certified Pilates instructor through the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).
Due to Government guidelines are Pilates studio remains closed for Classes.
We have been so grateful for all the continued support we have received from our clients over this last year. It has been a difficult year for many and this time last year we had no idea how all our lives were about to be affected.
We have definitely felt the love in the studio and have been so pleased that so many of you have appreciated the little dose of normality our online classes have provided and we have felt that we have grown as a community despite not seeing you all in person.
We dearly hope to return to a studio timetable in when the time is right, for now we will remain online with a wide range of classes available to you via email links or Facebook live.
The studio remains open for Physiotherapy as we are an essential health service.

ABOUT HOLYWOOD PILATES
Holywood Pilates & Physiotherapy Clinic was established in 2010 by Dr Lorraine Maxwell (DPhil) who has 20 years clinical physiotherapy experience as well as being a fully certified Pilates instructor through the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI). We moved to our current premises in April 2019.
We run physiotherapy led modified Pilates classes and offer 1:1 Pilates, musculoskeletal physiotherapy and postnatal checks. There are currently 5 Chartered Physiotherapists working in the team.
WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates is a mind body conditioning exercise program that targets the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine to improve overall central core stability and posture.
Pilates suits all ages and fitness levels and is particularly beneficial for those with back pain, poor posture, neurological conditions, sports injuries, arthritis, and before and after pregnancy. It is also great for injury prevention or for those who simply want to tone and strengthen their bodies.
Holywood Pilates practices modified Pilates exercises as taught by the APPI - the original 34 Pilates matwork exercises have been modified to incorporate the recent research on lumbar instability, muscle imbalance and adverse neural tension.
Lorraine qualified as a physiotherapist in 1998 and obtained her PhD studying paediatric orthopaedics in 2004. Over the last 20 years she has worked in a wide range of paediatric and adult musculo-skeletal areas both in Belfast and in London...
