Classes are provided by Physiotherapist and STOTT Pilates trained instructor Dara Clifford (MISCP; BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy UCD). My focus is on developing the safest and most effective programming for my clients.

Aim: optimal musculoskeletal performance (strength, flexibility and endurance) without risking injury or building bulk. With a focus on core stability, including pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, neutral alignment and breathing, the STOTT PILATES method of exercise also helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhance self confidence. The result is body awareness, a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized and moves with ease.

With Pilates there will be no 'Pumping' or 'Pounding'. All you need is a mat, comfortable clothing and a will to learn :)

Many famous names such as Madonna, Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham swear by it. Many men, too, swear by pilates - Manchester United and the Scottish rugby team incorporate it into their training programmes. It is also widely used by golfers, dancers and the athletic population. Pilates is suitable for anyone young or old, fit or not. It is easy to learn but physiotherapists recommend that anyone suffering from back pain or other injuries may benefit from a one-to-one session with a trained teacher before beginning regular practice. Exercises done correctly will maximise the benefits.

This service will be provided in Inchicore Community Sports Centre. Classes will be commencing 01/07/13 and last an hour. 6 week courses will cost 50 with 8 week courses 65. Classes will be kept to a maximum of 10 in order to foster safety and education. Private lessons will vary from 10-20.
