What We Do

Reformer Classes

The Pilates reformer is a very dynamic piece of equipment where the user performs exercise against the resistance of the reformer springs. This piece of equipment can be used to support or challenge and as such can be used by a wide range of people. Group classes and private sessions are available.

Womens health physiotheraphy

Issues with bladder and bowel control, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse and diastasis recti are just some of the common, but not normal issues Pelvic Health Physiotherapists see on a regular basis. The Powerhouse uses up to date clinical research and exercise prescription to treat all patients holistically.

Ante & Postnatal classes

As a Womens Health Physiotherapist, there is no better person to guide you through exercise with specialist classes for your pregnancy and postnatal recovery. Classes utilise weights, Pilates matwork and the reformers to ensure an all round effective and safe workout targeted at your individual level of ability.


Sharon Wheelers scarwork consists of gentle manual treatment for scars and adhesions which can improve restriction and discomfort in the area. This can be especially useful after abdominal or pelvic surgeries.

Cancer Rehab

As a qualified Pinc Physio Orlaith is part of a select group of therapists using their skills to make an impact on people whose lives have been affected by cancer. Exercise has been scientifically proven to help people at every stage of their cancer journey.

Pilates matwork

Led by Physiotherapists, each class takes the client through a series of Pilates exercises using bodyweight and small equipment to give a full body, low impact workout to improve strength, body awareness and mobility.

What is pilates?

Pilates is a system of exercise designed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. Pilates developed his system over years of meticulous studying and research. During World War One he was credited with rehabilitating sick and wounded soldiers with his exercises and after the war he travelled to New York and continued to refine his system with his wife, Clara. He worked with many people, including ballet dancers and his popularity grew.

Pilates is known mostly for it's most accessible aspect- the exercises on the mat, however it continues to be a full system of exercise on the mat and other pieces of equipment, such as the reformer, chair, tower, arc barrel and cadillac to name a few. Pilates is a low impact, mindful form of exercise with focus on strength, control, breath, mobility and flexibility. When one of Pilates most famous students, Romana Kryzanowska, was asked to describe Pilates she replied "Stretch with strength and control".

At The Powerhouse we run group, private and semi-private matwork and reformer sessions to allow you to feel the benefits of this system - each movement can be modified to suit your individual needs and as each of our sessions is taken by a Physiotherapist, you know you are in good hands.
