About Powerhouse Pilates
Sligo’s Home To Classical Pilates Training
Powerhouse Pilates Studio
The PowerHouse Classical Pilates Studio has a wide range of equipment including Mats, Reformers, Wundachair, Towers, Spine Correctors, and Foot Correctors. The different equipment contains Springs which create resistance that challenges the body. While Pilates classes vary, the Classical Pilates Classes focus on your whole body, through a range of authentic exercises, which we deliver through our studio.
About Claire Gethins
I began attending Pilates classes in 2014, during my time in Melbourne, Australia. I enjoyed the many challenges that both the apparatus and mat classes gave me. I moved home to Ireland in 2017 and settled in Dublin. I began attending local Pilates classes and I just knew I wanted more, to learn more about the method, and delve more into the world of Pilates.
So I decided to sign up for a one year course in Classical Pilates with Anna Wilson at the Pilates Centre in Clontarf. I attended the studio for classes most days during the week and attended workshops at the weekends. Half way through my course, I moved to Sligo. I then committed to travelling to Dublin every weekend to train and to attend the workshops. When in Sligo during the week, I was teaching friends and family, trying to improve my knowledge and teaching skills
I qualified to teach Pilates in April 2019, which enabled me to begin teaching at both a Fitness studio and a Physiotherapy centre in Sligo. I was doing Group Mat Classes and Private Reformer Classes until the Covid19 pandemic hit and since then I have been delivering classes mostly online, and in the studio in between lockdowns.
One of the few benefits of National Lockdowns has been that we have access to Online Classes and workshops with amazing Pilates instructors worldwide who otherwise I wouldn’t have had access to. I have enjoyed doing a wide range of classes and workshops with some of the greatest Pilates instructors there are, and I have loved every opportunity to improve my Knowledge, Skills, and Practice. In between lockdowns I ensure to do private 1:1 sessions for my own body with another teacher in Sligo, as I am constantly trying to improve my own practice and keep learning more about my own body and how it moves.
I am very proud to have now created this beautiful Pilates studio in Ballisodare and I am very excited to see what the future holds here.
