Originally from Texas, Christie Seaver is now based in Dublin, Ireland, where she is owner of D4 Pilates. A former ballet dancer, her teaching emphasises the classic fundamentals of Joseph Pilates, believing that it can create what he called the “unique trinity of a balanced body, mind and spirit.” Christie passionately believes that Pilates is for life, not just the studio. In addition to a podcast, she developed the Pocket Pilates App for iPhone to empower people through Pilates, whether at work, at home, en route or on holiday. A journalist who has worked in the US, Africa and Europe, she is also ballet critic with The Irish Times newspaper. She is thankful that Pilates keeps her in touch with the joy of movement.
