What is Pilates?
Pilates is an intelligent form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced lengthened development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and body awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement. It also improves your mental and physical well-being. In addition, pilates increases circulation and helps to sculpt the body and strengthen the body’s “core” or “powerhouse” or belly and lower back area.
A message from Catriona Walsh, Pilates Instructor
I have been teaching fitness classes for 20 years and I am qualified in fitness, personal training, gym, aerobics, aqua aerobics, swimming & Pilates. I came across Pilates while researching exercise Pilates prevents back pain for toning and lengthening muscles, and quickly fell in love with the principle of working the body and mind together, in a more focused manner. Pilates can be referred to as an exercise class, however during the class we perform movements that assist your posture, relieve mental stress, lengthen and tone your body. Based on the philosophies of Joseph Pilates, this method will help you develop strength and flexibility. This class has strong emphasis on strengthening and toning the lower back and abdominal areas, along with promoting greater body awareness. I have been teaching Pilates since 2002 in Sligo and absolutely love it! Having studied Pilates in Ireland, the U.K., the U.S. and Australia I enjoy learning the latest techniques and bringing them to Sligo. I look forward to hearing from you please feel free to contact me.
