They have reviewed and revised each and every Pilates movement, making them safer and more clinically effective for today’s lifestyles, as well as customising them for people with specific injuries.They developed a modified Pilates programme that would be applicable to people of all ages and abilities. Sheenaghs classes are founded on this principle and are a nice balance of stretching for flexibility,strengthening core muscles for support, balance and feeling good through movement.
