Introducing Helena.. New Bump Room in Sligo!

October 01st. 2018 | 4 Comments

We are very excited to be starting a Bump Room in Sligo.  This class will be instructed by Helena Haran. 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.

Helena graduated with an honours degree in Physiotherapy from University College Dublin in 2003. She is also a qualified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist since 2007 and a Stott Pilates instructor.

Helena has worked as a senior Physiotherapist in Cancer Care with a special interest in Womens Health and breast cancer prehabilitation and rehabilitation including management of complications such as lymphoedema.

She has completed additional training in pregnancy and postnatal pilates in addition to specific womens health courses for physiotherapists.  Helena has been involved in the delivery of antenatal education classes in Sligo for many years and has provided physiotherapy services for pregnant and postnatal women.

She currently runs regular pilates classes and works in private practice. Having played competitive sport for many years, she is passionate about exercise and health promotion.

As mum to three young girls Helena is aware of the importance of looking after yourself during this busy but precious time in your life.

She is looking forward to bringing the Bump Room to the Sligo area and supporting, reassuring and encouraging mums-to-be during their pregnancy.


Classes start Tuesday 6th of November 2018 in the Family Resource Centre, Mountain Road Tubbercurry, Co Sligo.  For more details please click HERE.

    Just a query really. I would love to do these classes in Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo but due to my work as a Nurse I work alternate Tuesdays so I am wondering if there’s any other classes running on other evenings in Tubbercurry.

    Hi Sinead

    Thank you for your interest in our Sligo Bump Room classes. Unfortunately at the moment Tuesday is the only class that we have in Tubbercurry. It is a new class with a new Physiotherapist only starting in November so we have to see how well it will take off.
    Sorry about that.

    Warmest Regards
