Back Care Pilates

Back Care Pilates classroom

Ever do a pilates class and feel like you could be standing on your head and the instructor wouldn't notice?! And worried you might be hurting yourself? Back-care pilates classes are kept small for greater attention and care. They are run by a Chartered Physiotherapist, and are designed for people who feel unable to join a regular pilates class due to recent or previous back or neck pain, illness, pregnancy, or osteoporosis. Classes are held in the Ashford Community and Heritage Centre and last for 1 hour. We provide all pilates equipment. 

Timetable for Sept-Oct 2017. If your desired class is full please get in touch, as we may add classes to suit demand. Email

For those people looking for general pilates, we recommend Wicklow Pilates


East Coast Physio has been an incredible resource for me when I am home in Wicklow. Whether it is to help with a current injury, or just to keep injuries at bay I have full confidence and comfort in knowing that they are there for me when I need them.

Their professional and knowledgeable approach is next to none, and they offer a friendly and inviting environment, which makes you feel relaxed and ready for treatment.
