Pilates in Dublin

Pilates is a certain type of exercise that looks to train the muscles which stabilise and support the lumbar spine, hips, and pelvis. This area of the body often referred to as the core is extremely important as we rely on it during both physical and everyday daily activities for efficient movement.

All our basic movements originate from this area of the body, a weak ‘core’ leads to compensatory movement patterns resulting in additional stresses on certain parts of the body, leaked energy and higher risk of injury. By enhancing the strength, flexibility and coordination of the core muscles we can improve how we transfer energy and move.

The benefits of Pilates are for all and we have classes which are tailored to all levels. Whether you are a high level athlete or have been relatively sedentary and are looking to tone up our classes can be tailored to your needs. We run small classes of a maximum of 8 people which allows us to give more individualised attention to the needs of our clients. Our classes our run by highly qualified Pilates instructors and we have a select number of Pilates classes which are lead by a chartered physiotherapist for people with rehabilitative needs.

Pilates Classes

Class times 17.30, 18.30, and 19.30 on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

If you would like to sign up for any of these classes or if you would like further information please call the Clinic on 01 476 3330/1 or email pilates@portobellophysio.ie

I have been going to David for physiotherapy for the past two and half years and I am really happy with what he has done for me. I initially went to David with upper back problems that were office work related and since then I have been doing strength and conditioning training with David that has helped eradicate that back pain.

Since training with David my fitness levels have gone from non-existent to being able to run a 16k road race, something I would have never dreamed I’d be able to do. Dave is professional, courteous and is an excellent motivator. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
