Pilates is a conditioning exercise program that targets the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine to improve overall central core stability and posture for the prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries including lower back, groin, hip and knee pain, arthritis and neck and shoulder pain.
Additional benefits of Pilates include improved quality of movement, improved posture, a longer more streamlined body, a stronger and more flexible spine, improved sense of joint awareness, toned abdominal muscles and reduced stress levels. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Many high-level athletes attend our pilates classes as a high-level core workout to prevent injury. We run a variety of classes to suit all levels, these include beginners, intermediate, advanced and over 55’s.
Classes are taught by our qualified Physiotherapists who are trained in Pilates. Classes are 6 weeks for €90 and held in both locations Douglas and Cobh. The classes run for 1 hour and all equipment and mats are supplied.
We also run antenatal pilates classes for women who want to stay active through pregnancy. Pilates will help maintain and improve posture, flexibility, fitness and pelvic floor strength. There is plenty of research to show that exercise through pregnancy is both beneficial for the mother and baby. We do advise though that you check with your GP first that you are fit to exercise and it is necessary to have had your 12 week dating scan before joining the classes.
