Group Mat Classes

Mat based Pilates involves a series of exercises on the floor. The key is use the combination of gravity and your body weight to provide resistance to the muscles. I offer small class sizes, a max of 12 students. This ensures you get personal attention, even in a group environment.  Classes  may include some Pilates props, such as Magic Circles, bands, Balls and Rollers.

8 week Course €115pp
Couples, Mother/Daughter €105pp
Full time Students over 16 €80pp

Private Studio Sessions

Private Pilates tuition is the best option for those who want a highly personalised Pilates session. The sessions utilize the original Pilates equipment on the Reformer, Cadillac, ladder barrel, Wunda Chair and Spine corrector offering your body both resistance and support. A low impact, muscle lengthening and strengthening routine.

Duration: 60 mins per session

€50 per session

Mat Course Levels

Fundamental. For those who are new to pilates. The pilates principles are taught and modifications given to those who need them. It is important to build a solid foundation in the beginning. Staying at this level for a while is highly recommended. Learning to move from your centre, focusing on body alignment, and control are the main focuses in Fundamental level classes.

Fundamental II.  Are for those who have grasped good basic technique and want to be challenged with tougher exercises. At this point we work on increasing core strength and stamina. At the same time we teach much more complex patterns of movement.

Intermediate. We build on what you’ve learnt so far to incorporate the flow of sequences and transitions between exercises. The exercises are preformed with higher reps at a quicker tempo

Intermediate/Advanced. Precision, Control and flow is the emphasis of this class with added movement requiring strength and balance. A minimum of 6 months regular class attendance is recommended for this level.

By clarifying your goals and creating a plan for success, I coach my clients to improve their strength & flexibility, and their overall self-image and well-being. I guide each client, giving precise verbal and tactile cues to insure optimal alignment, proper breathing, and safe and efficient movement. In addition, I help clients to consider their day to day activities and how they may enhance or diminish overall health.
