Having undertaken a government accredited Diploma in Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology (52625WA), Libby now brings an understanding of postural and movement assessment, along with rehabilitative Pilates programming, to her clients. Her special interest is helping fellow dental colleagues correct the imbalances caused by the ergonomics of the dental environment.
