Christine Bowen

Source Pilates offers small group classes and private sessions at Maitri Studio.

Christine teaches the whole Pilates system. This includes the matwork, reformer and many other big and small pieces of Pilates equipment.

Pilates works best when experienced as the total method. It will strengthen, lengthen and stretch the body, helping you to achieve a more balanced, aligned and lifted posture.

Lockdown Jan/Feb 2021 update

Christine is delivering real-time classes via Zoom, max. 6–8 people to ensure everyone gets attention.

  • General level - Monday, 5.30pm
  • Back to basics - Monday, 6.30pm

Private and duet sessions available online or in-person dependent on latest government guidelines.

Private sessions (1:1) continue in-person at Maitri Studio — experience the benefits of the Classical Pilates system with the Gratz reformer, cadillac, spine corrector and other small equipment for a session tailored to your needs and goals.

Duet sessions (2:1) in-person at Maitri Studio — work out with a friend, focusing on the matwork and exploring a bit more of the Pilates system using small equipment (e.g. spine corrector, magic circle, weights, etc.).

About Christine

Christine Bowen has been teaching Pilates since 2013. Since then she has continued to learn and study with those classical Pilates teachers closest to the source of Joseph Pilates’ genius - to bring you authentic Pilates and the benefits of the full Pilates method.

Christine is a level 5 Romana’s Pilates certified teacher. She is the only Romana’s Pilates teacher in Northern Ireland and one of a handful in the whole of Ireland.

She completed the programme in The Pilates Studio in The Netherlands (2018-2019), studying with Marjorie Oron (level X), one of the highest level trainers of Romana’s Pilates in the world, and Jane Poerwoatmodjo (level 3).

The Romana’s Pilates certification works like a traditional apprenticeship. It is intensive and challenging. It involves more than 700 hours of seminars, personal practice, observation, written and practical exams, assisting and teaching.

Christine teaches small group classes and private sessions in Belfast at her dedicated home at Maitri Studio and guest teaches on Fridays at The Pilates Studio Dublin.
