Eimear Gallagher B.A., STOTT PILATES Certified in Matwork to Advanced Level and in Reformer
I grew up by the river Shannon, where I was free to roam in nature and boat on the water. I love the outdoor and being active. Having spent my teenage years and 20s in Dublin, I moved to rural Co, Tipperary in 1994; still happily here with my husband; just one daughter left here!
In between freelance work as a graphic designer and editor (www.wordworks.net) and raising a family, I have always practiced yoga through a weekly class. But when I tried out Pilates for the first time in 2004, I became seriously hooked; niggling low back issues disappeared; I started to feel really connected and balanced in my body.
I knew I no longer only wanted a sedentary desk job, so I retrained as a Pilates Mat Instructor starting in 2008. I am now a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor; I am fully certified in Mat Plus, Advanced Mat and Reformer Pilates with STOTT PILATES®.
I have also completed very comprehensive training in pilates for Injuries and Special Populations, and am comfortable working on rehabilitation post-surgery and post-physiotherapy, or simply modifying the repertoire to suit your particular situation.
I’ve also done STOTT PILATES workshops in the following:
- Ante- and post-natal pilates
- Functional anatomy, cueing and correcting
- Postural analysis
- Precision and control with fitness circle
- Matwork for men
I embrace meditation, mindfulness and good nutrition in my daily life. I encourage everyone else to do so – life becomes easier and you reach moments of true peace and joy! Being present in each moment is more valuable than fretting over the future or the past.
I am passionate about helping clients transform from a life of stiffness and pain to one of strength and ease of movement. It’s not about burning a certain number of calories; it’s about learning new and better ways to move.
