JUDE HIRSCHHEIMER

Jude was a musician throughout her early life up to degree/professional level. It was through her studies as a woodwind player and pianist that she began to understand the profound effects posture and breathing can have on the body.

 

Foregoing a career as a professional woodwind player she opted to go into the music industry and worked in many areas including marketing, production and publishing. It was during this time she discovered her love for anatomy and movement and retrained firstly as a personal trainer but then as a Pilates teacher after realising her passion lay with helping people recover from injury and pain.

 

Jude is trained in Pilates Matwork, Reformer and the Trapeze Table as well as pre and post-natal Pilates. She has deepened her knowledge with apprenticeships in the Pilates apparatus as well as in-depth courses and continual study on functional anatomy, biomechanics and neurobiology. She is a NeuroKinetic Therapy Level 3 practitioner, has studied trigger point massage and qualified as an Oxygen Advantage Functional Breathing coach. She has completed the Garuda Foundation Matwork and previously held an ACSM fitness professional qualification. Jude continues to improve and build on her knowledge through working with mentors, attending courses, regular study and her own practise.

 

Jude has worked with a variety of clients including post operative surgery patients, pre and post natal mothers, spinal injuries, brain injuries, athletes, professional sports individuals as well as people looking to improve their movement, health and wellbeing of all ages and abilities.

Her aim is to provide a calm, friendly and intuitive space in which to help people make a difference in their bodies.
