Universal Reformer

The Universal Reformer is the most multifaceted piece of equipment developed by Joseph Pilates. The Reformer works on every part of the body and in virtually every plane of movement. One of it’s unique features is the use of eccentric contractions, where the muscles have to resist a force as they lengthen. Click here for more training details

Anne Sexton Pilates is the home of Pilates in Wicklow. In her studio in Kilcoole, 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 studio is 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 timetable offers various classes for both Reformer and Mat methods; please see the timetable for more details.

Another exciting addition to the studio 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.

This beautiful studio is also the home of the Anne Sexton Teacher Training Centre, which  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. More information on our Teacher Training programme can be found here.
