Instructor Trainer
Dani Gonzalez Ares is currently Ireland's only resident STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer. She was born in the Netherlands to Spanish parents and is fluent in a variety of languages. As a youngster Dani was involved in a number of sports. Dani was a keen swimmer and gymnast and was competitively involved in karate and horse riding. Unfortunately Dani suffered a back injury due to a horse riding accident, which made walking very painful for approximately a year. After many hospital visits Dani decided to take her recovery into her own hands and started weight training daily for the following years. It was in this period that Dani discovered Pilates. Dani moved to Ireland in 1994 and is the co-owner of Fitness 4 U Personal Training and Pilates Centre in Dublin. Dani combines her sports knowledge with other qualifications as a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist gained over the past decade.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
