Ailish Cleary began teaching pregnancy pilates classes in 2009! Ailish realised the importance of exercise in pregnancy while working in the maternity hospital in Limerick. She was passionate about encouraging women to stay active and completed training to teach pregnancy pilates classes.
Subsequently Ailish instructed her classes through three pregnancies during which she experienced pelvic pain, a common complaint during pregnancy. Through her personal experience Ailish adapted the classes to ensure they didn’t aggravate the pelvic pain and remained challenging.
The classes have evolved over the years and the Bump Room was born in 2013 with co-founder Caitriona Quinn. The Bump Room uses the best techniques from pregnancy pilates, pregnancy yoga and strength training. The popularity of the classes required the recruitment of more physiotherapists to teach in The Bump Room. Since then The Bump Room has grown and grown!
