Emily Waters


Welcome to our Pilates studio! Since arriving in Northern Ireland 10 years ago, Emily initially worked in Physiotherapist led Pilates Studios and has over 25 years experience in the Pilates Industry.

As a Polestar Pilates Studio Instructor she worked primarily teaching Clinical Pilates and Rehabilitation in Australia, the Caribbean, Switzerland and more recently Northern Ireland. As the founder and owner of  the popular Pilates Power Studio in Cronulla, Australia, she also trained instructors and developed the business before relocating to the Caribbean. Emily had an opportunity to introduce Clinical Pilates to The British Virgin Islands working closely with their Physiotherapy team before moving back to the UK. Currently Emily owns and manages Pilates Power, Holywood, Northern Ireland which opened its doors in 2017. She continues to work closely with physiotherapists, osteopaths and other general practitioners across Northern Ireland.

” I regularly connect with Polestar Pilates in London for on-going education and workshops. Pilates really is a way of life for me, my family and so many of our clientele. I was lucky enough to be originally trained by the founders of Polestar Pilates in Sydney, Australia and I continue to develop and grow within the method with its ever evolving scientific research and implementation. I am also an associate member of the U.K. Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

I am passionate about Pilates benefiting all aspects of life including my own, I love the outdoors so I love to surf, hike, swim and spend time with my family whenever I am not teaching Pilates! 

If you have any questions about any aspect of our Pilates programmes please do not hesitate to contact me.
