Joe and Mary McCarthy recently opened their newly designed Life Balance Pilates Studio and Holistic Therapy Centre, at No 6 Brookfield Ave, just off Carysfort Avenue. Their launch night was supported by many of their clients, including journalist David McWilliams, local Councillor Marie Baker, along with members of the Blackrock Business Network and local business people.
Joe and Maryrose have built a business that is ostensibly of contrasts and yet complimentary. There is the healing, nurturing supportive side, driven by Maryrose’s talents and skillsets, and then the more structured, disciplined nature of the Pilates and exercise regimes created and managed by Joe. This comes together with a focus on creating an optimised version of the individual, whatever physical or emotional supports they require. Maryrose, who is a qualified Holistic Massage Therapist and Reflexologist, also is an independent Consultant for the Neal’s Yard Remedies range of organic natural health and beauty products in Ireland. Joe is the only STOTT PILATES Rehabilitation Certified Instructor Trainer in the country. Since 2009 he has been teaching STOTT PILATES courses and workshops to Physiotherapists, fitness instructors and students. He has also taught in the UK and South Korea. Joe lectures with Litton Lane Training and delivers courses in Anatomy, Nutrition and Biomechanics on the ITEC/FETAC and FAS FAI courses.
