Christine Bowen

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

Source Pilates has a dedicated home at Maitri Studio where Christine offers mat classes, private sessions and duets.

Christine loves working one-to-one and in small groups to give you more tailored and individual attention. She teaches the whole Pilates system, which includes the matwork and reformer, as well as the other small and big pieces of equipment.

She’ll help you to understand the ‘why’ of the exercises to help you achieve your goals. Whether that’s managing back pain, improving your mobility or balance, helping you to do other activities you love, or teaching you the tools to live your life independently for longer. Read about her story here.

Mat classes

Small group mat classes following the Classical Pilates order, where one exercise prepares your body for the next.

Classes run in 6-week terms with max. 6-8 people to give everyone support and attention — booking is essential due to small class sizes. Please contact Christine to book.

  • 6-week term - £72
  • PAYG class - £14

Beginners Class - Tuesday 10.30am & Thursday 6.30pm

This class is ideal if you are new to Pilates or returning after a break. It has a more mindful pace, to focus on the essential building blocks that will create a strong foundation for your body and prepare you to join open level classes.

Open Level Mat - Tuesday 6pm

This open level class is for you if you've done Pilates regularly before. We offer progressions and options to build upon the basics and build strength, stretch and control.

Dynamic Flow - Thursday 5.30pm

This class is for experienced students who already know the mat exercises well and are injury-free. We will build on the pace of your workout, add more transitions and introduce you to more exercises to challenge you.

About Christine

She’s been teaching since 2012 in Belfast, Dublin, England and The Hague. You may know her from teaching Pilates courses for over 4 years for Queen’s Sport and the Queen’s University staff wellbeing programme, as well as running her own classes at other locations including Ballynafeigh Community Centre and the Belfast Chiropractic Clinic.

After several years of teaching large group classes, she was keen to train to teach the full Pilates system and create a home for Classical Pilates in Belfast. In 2018 she committed to 2 years of travelling to The Netherlands every month to complete a rigorous 700 hour apprenticeship through the Romana’s Pilates training programme, with her mentors Marjorie Oron and Jane Poerwoatmodjo at The Pilates Studio in The Hague.

Her comprehensive training gives her a crystal clear picture of how the whole system fits together and how to use it to help her clients to achieve their goals to become stronger and feel good in their bodies. This is what motivates her to do what she does.

She loves hearing how her clients reap the benefits of Pilates in the rest of their life and one of her favourite moments is when her clients tell her “that’s the fastest hour of the week” — because we all know that time flies when you’re having fun.
