Teresa Laiseca

Reformer Pilates

Teresa likes to challenge her students!

Originally from Spain and having spent 12 years in London, Teesa landed in Platinum Pilates in June 2016.

Teresa originally studied Marketing in Spain but decided to move to London. Here she worked in marketing for several years but ended up doing graphic design.

Her passion for movement started at an early age with ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. Like most people, Teresa discovered Pilates as a way of helping her to recover and rehabilitate a cruciate ligament injury while in London.

After moving to Dublin, She continued to work in Graphic Design. The 9-5 job wasn't for her and she decided to pursue what she is passionate about and trained as a Mat and Reformer teacher. She has  also recently completed her Polestar Comprehensive Course (chair, barrel, spine corrector, trapeze table, mat and reformer).

Teresa likes to challenge her clients with a mixture of classical and contemporary Pilates moves and making clients feel safe and comfortable. Teresa also tries to give as much individual attention as she can in a group environment.

Teresa's aim is that at the end of the class, the clients feel better, longer, stronger and energised.

Outside the studio you'll probably see Teresa outside with her two children and her husband (weather permitting). She also loves travelling, reading, listening to music, contemporary dance, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.
