Breathe with awareness ~ stretch and move according to the proven Pilates method! Develop more flexibility and balance in your muscles and skeleton to hold you in relaxed, good posture. A pilates routine done consistently ~ along with eating natural, non-processed foods, drinking lots of water and regular aerobic activity ~ makes a difference.

Private pilates

My home pilates studio is near New Inn. Taking a few private lessons is recommended if you have never done pilates before, have had an injury or have an on-going issue and plan on attending a group mat class. My small home studio offers access to additional tools such as ballet barre, spine correctors, Swiss balls or reformer. It works very well for up to two people on the mat or three at the ballet barre. I can check your technique and offer you more individual attention than in a larger group class.

Consider whether you have a friend that you would like to workout with? We could arrange an introductory workshop or an ongoing class (maximum two, daytimes only). Let me know what you would like and we can make it happen! €20 each per session, following introductory session for €25 each. Click here to book online.

About Eimear Gallagher

I am certified in the STOTT PILATES method for matwork and reformer. I attend on-going STOTT pilates training, and remain certified. I am very interested and curious about other movement disciplines – yoga and Feldenkrais – and work hard to keep my classes interesting and appropriate to the bodies before me. Classes are small and modifications offered to suit each individual’s stability, strength and range of movement.
