Pilates works by strengthening your core muscles in order to help the surrounding muscles to strength and work more efficiently. As a safe and effective exercise method it will enable you to look – and feel – your very best. What’s more, because it gives you such a wonderful sense of well-being, you’ll want to do Pilates for the rest of your life! At Monaghan Physio, all our classes are led by a qualified Chartered Physiotherapist, who take complete consideration for individual needs and can modify and adapt exercises for participants with acute or chronic injuries or limited mobility, to ensure you reach your full potential regardless of age or ability.
The perfect workout for your body and mind. Pilates is a total body workout that focuses on toning and strength training. Through a series of postures, stretches and positions the exercise can help improve a person’s balance and flexibility. It also engages the whole body. Through slow and controlled movements designed to put minimal impact on.
As a result, your posture will change and you will move more efficiently. You’ll achieve a strong core, develop longer, leaner muscles and improve your overall sense of well-being. And, if you are a sports enthusiast, Pilates will also improve your game!
We offer a range of classes at varying times and levels. If you’re not sure which Pilates class is suitable for you, we will be delighted to offer some guidance. Simply get in touch with us using our contact form here.

Pilates is great for desk-bound staff who are at their workstation all day, as it teaches awareness of breathing and spinal alignment while developing the body’s core muscles.
