Keep Well Campaign - KEEPING ACTIVE

Keeping active – Keeping active and being outdoors, even during the winter, is important to help physical and mental health and wellbeing. Sport Ireland and Waterford Sports Partnership have developed a series of initiatives that will support you to stay active in your own local area throughout the winter. Check them out below and remember to check-in again as we will continue to provide updates on new initiatives here ...


Physio-Pilates

Colette O'Flynn from PhysioNow Ireland will show you how to stay energised, fit and healthy during the pandemic, with this free introduction to Physio-Pilates on Wednesday 21st April at 12.30pm.

To register for free, please click here.

The exercises are ideal for house-bound people of any age or fitness and can be done at any time with little or no equipment. There is no need to change into gym gear. All you need is a mat and some space.

PhysioNow is a network of chartered physiotherapist clinics, operating across Dublin and online. During the lockdown, they developed a series of online 'Physio-Pilates' classes, which combined the principals of Physiotherapy and Pilates and has since become very popular with companies and individuals.

This webinar is part of the Waterford Healthy Ireland at your Library initiative. For more information, please go to our website, here.
