Anne Sexton Pilates is the home of Pilates in Wicklow. With studios in Greystones and Roundwood, Anne’s vision is to inspire positive lives through the teaching of various Pilates systems. Working with highly skilled teachers, Anne leads a programme of classes that ensures you will experience the very best of the Pilates method and feel the positive changes in your health and well being.
The Roundwood studio is now in its 6th year and the Greystones studio at South Beach Pavilion opened in early 2016.
Both studios are fully equipped with the full array of Pilates equipment, including Reformers, Barre, Tower, Barrel and Chair and Mats to facilitate Pilates Mat classes. The various smaller equipment such as stability balls and Pilates circles are also available.
The timetables for both studios offer various classes for both Reformer and Mat methods; please see the timetable for more details.
Another exciting addition to both studios has been the Galileo Whole Body Vibration training system. This system activates 95% to 97% of muscle fibres as opposed to 70% in conventional training. The benefits include; improved muscle strength, weight loss, cellulite reduction, pain dampening, stress reduction, activated circulation, improved coordination and increased bone density. It is used to improve athletic performance and recovery, and is highly beneficial in the care of the elderly with such things as bone density building, circulation, bladder control, muscle rehabilitation, in the management of MS, Parkinson’s etc. A full body workout is achieved in just 15 to 20 minutes.
The TRX Suspension Training System is available in the Roundwood studio. Anne has developed programmes that incorporate the Pilates principles with the TRX system to create a very challenging training system – similar programmes have been used to train the Navy Seals. This brings a strong cardio element to the studio and keeps true to the functional and core-training element at the heart of the Pilates movement. The Roundwood Studio also runs Kettlebell classes and Boxercise.
In early 2016 Anne opened her studio at the South Beach Pavilion in Greystones, a wellness centre in the beautiful surroundings of Charlesland Golf Club 2km from the village centre. Free parking is available.
This beautiful studio is also the home of the Anne Sexton Teacher Training Centre, which is part of the PMA Registry of Schools, and has a rigorous curriculum and the goal of developing highly skilled Pilates instructors that will share in Anne’s vision of inspiring positive lives through Pilates.
