Annette Cashell is a Movement Coach who helps people undo and prevent the damage done by excessive sitting. Ex-corporate, she avoided a neck fusion operation and now combines her expertise in Pilates and movement to help others thrive with corrective exercises and the lifestyle/environmental changes to support them. Annette has been spoken on radio, podcasts, corporate wellness webinars and conferences. She has also written articles for Arianna Huffington's Thrive Global and featured in 'Grow Wild' and the Irish Examiner.
Annette suffered 2 years of chronic pain with 3 bulging discs and was told she needed a neck infusion. She was sleeping well, exercising and eating right and so couldn’t figure out why she was in so much pain. After much research she discovered she was an ‘active coach potatoe’.
