Online Mat Pilates
Online Pilates has proven very popular, keeping us sane and moving during this era of social distancing. You see me and I can keep an eye on you (optional), but no-one else is watching you. I use props you’d have at home – towels, chairs, cushions! You need quiet space for your mat, internet connection and to set aside one hour. You follow clear cues to flex, extend, stretch and strengthen in the Pilates way. Vibes and energy of group mat class, but at home! I use props you’d have at home – towels, chairs, cushions!
Wednesdays at 8am: Mixed level (beginners can join)
Wednesdays at 7.30pm: Intermediate level (faster pace)
I plan on returning to teaching group Mat Pilates in person in beautiful Cashel Lodge in September, albeit with slightly smaller groups in line with health protocols.
Private Pilates: new studio!
Slowly opening in lovely studio space at Lagganstown Schoolhouse! Now taking limited appointments for privates and duets in fully-equipped pilates studio with reformers, tower, ladder barrel, plus all the smaller props. Adhering to all health protocols re social distancing, equipment cleaning, etc. Fuller timetable from September onwards.
I help people keep mobile so they can move with ease from a strong core; I work with all types of bodies: injured, post-joint replacement or perhaps seeking specific strength training. Maybe I cannot ease your pain immediately or eliminate it for good, but I have the tools and knowledge to address the root causes. You can feel better, decrease your chance of injury and feel empowered in your own body. Muscle imbalances mean some muscles might be overworking while others aren’t doing their jobs. Maybe your deep stabilising muscles are not responding as they should to help support the lower back. Perhaps your posture is poor – either based on habit/lifestyle, congenital issues like scoliosis or simply from chronic pain (being in pain can make you stand strangely ). Or maybe immobility somewhere in the spine is causing too much movement above or below. Well-chosen Pilates exercises can help get the body moving better.
