All our Pilates instructors are chartered physiotherapists. This means that they have an in-depth knowledge of the muscle system, core stability training and injuries, as well as being trained Pilates instructors. Please do let us know in advance if you have a back, neck or pelvic problem or if you are pregnant or have recently given birth. All you need to do is to wear loose-fitting clothing – we supply everything else!
Pilates got its name from Joseph Pilates who developed his own exercise programme and theories in the early twentieth century. It gained popularity after chartered physiotherapists in Australia researched and discovered the importance of core stability in the treatment and prevention of low back and pelvic pain. We now use a modified version of some of his exercises as our knowledge of the human body has improved since he first started the exercise regime.
Our Beginner classes run for six weeks and our Advanced run for eight weeks and each class lasts for one hour. If you can’t make your class and you let us know in advance (please give enough notice so that we can accommodate someone else), you can do a catch-up class at a different time so you will get to do all the classes for which you have paid.
All attendees in our Beginner Classes receive weekly handouts to help them to practise their exercises at home. We also have modified handouts specifically for those doing Pilates during pregnancy.
€120 for six classes (Beginner) and €160 for eight classes (Advanced). We have a maximum of six per class to ensure close supervision. Private classes may be available (€80). Full payment is required before the set starts (€50 of which is non-refundable). Payment can be made by card over the phone.
