We are very excited to be starting a new Bump Room in Birr. This class will be instructed by Christine Bourke. Bump room classes incorporate exercises from pregnancy pilates, pregnancy yoga and pregnancy fitness. These are led by Chartered Physiotherapists with vast experience in women’s health who are committed to learning, sharing, teaching and supporting each other to create classes that deliver an excellent experience for our pregnant ladies.
Christine has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy from Trinity College, Dublin. She is a Chartered CORU registered physiotherapist and is Pilates trained with APPI.
Throughout her career, Christine has worked across many healthcare settings including rehabilitation, acute hospital, community care and private practice. She has taught Pilates classes for a number of years as well as exercise classes for a variety of conditions such as falls, osteoporosis and COPD. She is currently working in the HSE in rehabilitation.
Christine initially made contact with The Bump Room during her first pregnancy in 2015 where she attended the classes and experienced firsthand the benefits of exercise in pregnancy. She derived great support and reassurance from both the instructor and the group which was invaluable. As a direct result of such a positive experience, Christine joined The Bump Room and is eager to start teaching classes in Birr.
Christine is married to a farmer and has two children.
She is looking forward to bringing the Bump Room to the Birr area and supporting, reassuring and encouraging mum’s-to-be during their pregnancy.
Classes start Thursday 9th of January 2020 in Crinkle National School, Crinkle, Birr, Co Offaly. R42 P585. For more details please click HERE.
