News time! We’re offering lots of classes and courses as well as one to one sessions and physiotherapy to enable you get the best of yourself this October. Come on down to our open, spacious studio and learn how Pilates can change your fitness!
We are running some very special events in the studio this October in aid of action breast cancer. October is breast cancer awareness month and for the past three years we have run a number of events to raise money for this very worth cause.

UPDATE: Unfortunately due to a family bereavement we will have to reschedule our charity Pub Quiz. New details will be published shortly.×

On Wednesday 17th of October we will be running a Pub Quiz in the club in the basement (did you know we have a full bar?). Tables of four are €40 each. We will have spot prizes and a raffle with all proceeds going to action breast cancer. Email [email protected] to register your team. There will be prizes for the best team names so get your thinking hats on.

Master Ferry of the Villian’s InQUIZition fame will be our Quiz Master – so expect lots of quirky questions across a range of great topics. No phones, laptops or other cheating allowed or there will be penalties!

Then on Saturday 20th of October, we will be running our annual event – a one hour Pilates for Pink class in the studio which is open to all levels and all you guys too. The class is at 11am and will be €15 per person with all proceeds donated to action breast cancer

We also have a fundraising box in the studio, so do please buy a keyring or a pin if you can’t make either event, or if you can provide a spot prize or raffle prize let us know. We’ve also set up a fundraising page here if you’d like to contribute but can’t make either of our events.

Any support or donations are very much appreciated!

We will also have a brand new Postnatal Pilates class for new mums starting Tuesday 9th October at 11am. Elaine will be your instructor and as a new mum herself will be able to guide you through an appropriate workout to help you regain your pre baby strength and tone.
