Home Exercises for Older Adults

Hope you are all keeping well. I started a Pilates Class for older adults about 8 weeks ago; There was a great mix of ages in the class and I was so surprised by how quickly everyone was progressing. Here are a few exercises n standing that are safe and suitable for everyone who is mobile enough to stand beside a chair or worktop! We need to stay strong mentally and physically to get through the next few weeks of social distancing so try these out and add them to your other daily exercise routines. Take care! Muireann

Pilates Update

Unfortunately I will not be running the drop-in 7.30pm class on Wednesday evenings for the near future due to family commitments ( kids!). I will let you know when I can start it up. Apologies for the inconvenience,I’ll miss it myself too. 20200119_171632_0000

Pregnancy Pilates Video

A little upgrade from the match-stick diagrams I have been giving out for years now!  This video is for my pregnant patients who present with Pelvic pain to my clinic. I nearly always advise reducing the activities that provoke pain and increasing the movements that promote muscle balance. The exercises in this video are gentle; however make sure you listen to your body so if you don’t feel good make sure you stop and ask advice from your GP, obstetrician or Chartered Physiotherapist. If you feel good, then enjoy! Any questions just ask, M
