February 19th. 2018 | Leave a comment
We are very excited to be starting a Bump Room in Mayo. This class will be instructed by Marie Tierney. 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.
Marie graduated with a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Limerick in 2009 and immediately pursued a PhD, earning her doctorate in Physiotherapy also from the University of Limerick in 2013.
Following her studies, Marie predominantly worked in the research environment as a postdoctoral researcher in the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at NUI Galway. In this role she worked on research projects involving the ante- and post-natal groups among others.
Marie has published in peer reviewed journals and has spoken nationally and internationally in her areas of research. Alongside her research work she has also honed her clinical skills, delivering exercise and education classes in various clinical populations.
A central part of Marie’s PhD focused on exercise and physical activity and as such she has a high level of expertise and understanding in this particular area, she brings and integrates this knowledge in her classes.
She is a busy mum to her little boy James, born in 2017 and is keenly aware of the benefits of safe exercise to maintain health during pregnancy as well as to prevent problems arising both during and after the pregnancy.
Marie is a born and bred Mayo lady and is excited to bring the Bump Room to the women of Mayo. She is looking forward to reassure, encourage and motivate mums-to-be to stay fit, strong and confident to exercise in pregnancy.
Classes start Thursday 12th of April 2018 in the Tennis Club, Lannagh Road, Castlebar, Co Mayo. For more details please click HERE.
