Back Care Pilates

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 (max 9 people) 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. They suit all ages and abilities, from the person who does no exercise, to the GAA player or runner. Classes are held in our new studio - located opposite Mount Usher Gardens and upstairs from Wardrobe+ and last for 55 minutes. We provide all pilates equipment.

If your desired class is full please get in touch, as we may add classes to suit demand. Email info@eastcoastphysio. or call 0404-49781.

Timetable for July and August 2019 below, but it will be based on demand, so get in touch and let us know what you would like as we may add more classes to suit demand. As it is summer-time, we are running shorter blocks of classes (5 week block in July, 4 week block in August). 

If you have not been with us before, you will first need to contact us so that we can get 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 session with us prior to commencing the programme (this is discounted to €50).

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

There are also two other services that also run at the studio (operating independently from East Coast Physio, so please contact directly): 

 

 

Yoga Classes 

 

Hatha Yoga is an ancient Indian practice which literally means "to unite body, mind & spirit".  To feel as well as possible, we need to take care of all 3 aspects of ourselves.

 

Kerry's Yoga classes are a nice balance of both body strengthening and tension releasing work. Each class incorporates mindfulness meditation and yogic breathing techniques.  The focus is on the mind as much as body. 

 

The class also has the added benefit of some hands-on Shiatsu massage techniques - great for helping soothe tight back, neck and shoulder muscles. Each class ends with a deep relaxation, to some mellow, soulful music to enhance the holistic experience.

 

Classes are mixed level, suitable for beginners. Lots of guidance provided!

 

Classes on Monday evening at 6.30pm, Tuesday morning at 10m and Wednesday evening at 615pm (with Michele). 

 

East Coast Physio clients can avail of a special rate of €12 for your first class, valid from now till 30 May.

 

 

 

Shiatsu Massage

 

Shiatsu is a Japanese bodywork/massage therapy which has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Taking place on a special futon, a variety of techniques are used to ease areas of tension, combining pressure on specific acupressure points, gentle stretches and mobilisation techniques. 

 

 

 

According to the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine, our energy or “ki” circulates throughout invisible pathways known as meridians. When imbalances occur in the flow of this energy - which often happens through stress, injury, ilness, fatigue or lifestyle - our health and well-being may suffer. Shiatsu can help re-balance this energy. It can also be effective in maintaining overall health and well-being as it is thought to stimulate the body’s own healing natural healing system. 60-minute session:  €65

The extremely high level of care, professionalism and experience that I found in East Coast Physio is rarely seen these days. I have already recommended them to my friends.
