Mid Ulster Pilates & Physiotherapy
About Our Practice
Hi, we are Mary Angela and Kathy, Co-founders of Mid Ulster Pilates & Physiotherapy. When setting up our business our aim was to provide Physio led Pilates classes "with a difference” to the Mid Ulster community.
We are true believers of movement in functional positions so you will not spend the whole class lying on a mat. Be prepared to Squat, Lunge and tune into those very important core muscles!
We offer an extensive range of classes that ensure we follow our “Pilates for all” ethos. Our classes are designed to educate and empower our clients to take control of their own health and well being
Womens Health Specialists
With a strong passion for helping women feel supported during their pregnancy and postnatal journey we have developed and evolved our business model to help achieve this!
We offer a Specialised Womens Health Physiotherapy clinic offering 1:1 Assessment and treatment of a wide variety of issues such as Diastasis, Pelvic girdle pain, Incontinence, Pelvic organ prolapse and painful intercourse.
Our specialised Pregnancy and Postnatal Phase 1 and Phase 2 classes are specifically designed to nurture our mums on their journey through all 4 trimesters and beyond. We truly believe our classes should be the starting point for all mums to help them find their baseline and safely help them rebuild and re-connect to their amazing postnatal body!

What better way to start your morning than with a Pilates session to blow away those cobwebs and get your joints moving and muscles fired up for the day! This class is a mixed level and all exercises modified accordingly.
Pregnancy Pilates - Lower Level

We would love to meet you and bump!
Pregnancy Pilates - Higher Level
This class is designed for those pregnant ladies with a reasonable level of fitness and who wish to continue their Cardio and Strength training safely.

Postnatal Phase 1
Reconnect with Pelvic Floor and Core
This class is all about mum and her postnatal recovery! Start your journey here with our expert Womens Health Physiotherapists who can help guide you on your posture, body awareness, balance, pelvic floor strength and abdominal rehab.
*Babies are welcome in our daytime classes*
Postnatal Phase 2
Move Mummy Move
We understand the pressure on mums to “regain their figure” but we also know the negative impact of returning to higher impact exercise too early.
This class is aimed at bridging the gap on return to higher level impact exercises. It is based on the fantastic return to running guidelines gradually loading the pelvic floor with more dynamic exercises. This class will aim to bring all your core work together in functional and higher impact exercises. With the use of weights in the class you are guaranteed a challenging yet rewarding work-out.
*Pre-requiste: Completion of Postnatal Phase 1*
Low Back Pain Pilates
“Motion is Lotion” This class is designed to give clients the confidence to exercise and move in a safe environment. All exercises are specific to improving spinal mobility and strength with the aim of reducing back pain and preventing re-occurrence.
Advanced Pilates Burn
This is our most advanced pilates class which involves getting a high level cardio workout using weights and ensuring you get that desired ‘burn’ in your abdominal core area.
Pilates - All Levels (including Men Only class)
Learn the key elements of Pilates in our Beginner class and then progress your way through our varied classes. Exercises within the mixed level classes will be demonstrated with a lower intermediate and higher level option available . Our experienced Physiotherapists can help determine if you are ready to progress to the next level.
