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

Lots of slots available for private pilates in home studio near New Inn from 14th through to 22nd December. Why wait til the New Year? Click here to book online.

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. I can check your technique and offer you more individual attention and a personalised pilates routine than is possible in a larger group class.

Following introductory session for €50, a private pilates session costs €40, with discounts for committing to five weeks.

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.
