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 smaller, and run by a Chartered Physiotherapist for greater attention and care.
Classes 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. They suit all ages and abilities, from the person who does no exercise, to the GAA player or the runner.
Classes are usually held in our studio which is down the road from our clinic – located opposite Mount Usher Gardens and across from Heels, and last for 55 minutes. We provide all pilates equipment.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR THE DURATION OF THE PANDEMIC, CLASSES ARE BEING HELD ONLINE.
Online classes are 8.50 each and can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Monday 1pm, Thursday 1pm – Advanced with Catherine.
Monday 7pm, Thursday 7pm – mixed level intermediate with John.
Tuesday 1pm, Friday 1pm – improver level with Catherine.
We will be adding a beginners online class shortly.
If you have not been with us before, we will need your medical and injury history before the class begins and decide which level class is most appropriate for you. If you have any history of back and neck pain, we advise a physiotherapy screening session with us prior to commencing the programme (this is discounted to €50 for face to face consultation, or €40 telehealth consultation).
