#NEW 17 – Local Indoor Fitness, Exercises & Pilates Classes Update (June 2021)

From Monday 5th July 2021 onward, group-indoor classes are allowed to take place, according to the recent government announcement in Ireland.

I was already in touch with various previously used exercises, fitness and Pilates class venues in the greater south Dublin area and waiting to hear back from them regarding room and hall availability. I hope to hear back from the various venue managers in the next one or two weeks.Pilates Fitness Exercises Classes in South Dublin Dundrum Sandyford Leopardstown Rathfarnham with Martin in IrelandIn parallel to that, I plan to contact current online and previous in-person class participants to see who would be interested in attending local in-person classes again.

Regarding In-Person Classes
Taney Parish Centre / Dundrum plans to hopefully open mid-August, if not definitely early September. Sandyford Community Centre is currently preparing for opening, but the manager doesn’t know yet when they will open.

[This is for those who already attended some of my online classes]
There are also suggestions/options for a “Contribution Payment – for already attended Online Classes.”
in the last few weeks and months a the bottom of the **Class Packages & Gift-Certs… ** page.

Please consider adding a bit extra money, as a lot of time, work and effort went into setting up
the new website and figuring all the necessary things out, besides actually teaching the classes.

Have a good week.

News #4 📽 🎞 Pilates Video – Warm-Up Exercise Roll-Down with a Push-Up (No. 14) 🎥

Here the third Pilates Exercise Online Video (as before a copy from my old website) to keep you on your toes.

In this video you are going to learn a very simple, yet effective “Warm-Up Exercise”. It’s easy to do and I will show you a few different variations in the video (from Beginners to Intermediate Level).
The “Roll-Down with a Push-Up” combines back / spine mobilization and loosening with an upper-body warm-up (shoulders, chest and arms) plus adds a stretch for your hamstrings and calves (back of your legs) as well.

You don’t even need a mat, just a bit of space.

This exercise can simply be added to other warm-up exercises like neck, back, shoulder and spine mobilization moves, a bit of foam-rolling, some dynamic stretching etc..

Always do an 8-10 minute warm-up routine, as this prepares the body for your main workout and aim to make the warm-up exercises specific to the exercises you plan to do.h

Enjoy, let me know how you get on and send me an e-mail with questions you have in relation to this exercise.
