Pilates encourages the use of the mind to control the muscles. Our Pilates program focuses on the core postural muscles that help keep the body balanced and are essential to providing support for the spine. The classes are taught by a chartered physiotherapist. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breathing and alignment of the spine. They strengthen the deep torso muscles, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain. Although it focuses mainly on the muscles around the pelvic and abdominal area, all areas of the body are given attention.
We run different levels of classes, so that people of a similar level are in the same classes.
Before joining a class participants can have a one to one assessment which identifies any particular problems which need to be addressed or precautions to be taken and familiarises participants with the basic principles of Pilates.
All equipment is provided, so just bring your self and wear something comfortable to move in. Programs consist of 5 weeks of classes and cost €60.
