“Change happens through movement and movement heals.”

– Joseph Pilates

Pilates => posture, balance, strength + flexibility

Don’t wait til January to start! Daytime openings for private sessions at Lagganstown Schoolhouse between now and 22nd December! See my online diary on book session page or call me.

Or if you can’t get to the studio for some live action, get your Pilates in at home. For only €10 a month, you can sign-in to unlimited access to my growing video library. Take as many classes as you like, whenever you like! All levels and video types (absolute beginners or improvers, bums and tums, hips, necks and shoulders, feet, etc), sorted by different durations (from 5, 10, 20, 30 to 60 minutes).

My semi-private reformer classes and group mat are full, mostly with returning clients. While I am grateful, I am also sorry that I can’t take everyone who wishes to join a group class. But openings do arise, so please email me your interest.

Set aside an hour to move well in comfort of your own home.

can I do Pilates?

It is never too late to start Pilates – I have the knowledge and experience to get you going safely.

Pilates comes highly recommended by physios and GPs. A regular class that suits you will help you whatever stage of life you are at. You do not have to be flexible or thin to do Pilates and move well!


– build core strength and stability
– improve flexibility and joint mobility
– improve posture and breathing
– get better balance and co-ordination
– prevent injury and heighten body awareness
– relieve stress and back pain


Eimear Gallagher

STOTT PILATES-certified in matwork and reformer, levels 1 & 2. STOTT PILATES  trained in Cadillac. See Bio for more information.

I teach people how to move with ease and stability from a strong core.

I work with all types of bodies, but specialise in lived-in, female bodies – like my own! I am interested in supporting women’s health as they move through the decades. Complementing my ongoing STOTT Pilates education, I have done further training in women’s health matters, including bone health, pelvic floor health and issues that arise during peri-menopause and menopause.

Maybe I cannot ease your pain immediately or eliminate it for good, but I have the tools and knowledge to help. Movement is scientifically proven to make you feel better. It doesn’t have to be complicated; but you must add movement into your daily life – it is non-negotiable!

I look forward to my class each week.

Before I started Pilates, I would have thought myself quite fit as I do a lot of mountain walking. However, I have found the Pilates greatly adds to my level of fitness and has hugely improved my core strength. My posture has improved, along with my balance and joint mobility. I also find Pilates reduces stress and tension.

Pilates has given me flexibility in my joints and freedom of movement…

Each class is conducted in a most professional way, in a relaxed atmosphere where I always feel refreshed and energised afterwards. Eimear always reminds us to listen to our bodies and move safely. Pilates has given me flexibility in my joints and freedom of movement – so important at any age.

Since taking up Pilates, I can kneel down, which alone makes many things possible!

I have suffered from chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 15 years. Before taking up Pilates, I could not kneel down. I had limited flexibility in my joints and found a lot of activities in life – not to mention day-to-day tasks – either difficult or impossible. Since taking up Pilates, I can kneel down, which alone makes many things possible. I have so much more flexibility and, to be honest, my outlook on life has completely improved. I don’t let my disease slow me down and I’m not worried about what the future will bring.

Still loving the classes, which can’t be said for a lot of things I’ve taken up over the years!

I know that Pilates works for me.

I know that Pilates works for me, it is a continuing journey into better movement & one I hope to keep travelling on with Eimear for the foreseeable! Thank you for the great instruction, guidance & patience!

My bone density has improved immensely.

I’ve been doing Eimear’s classes in-person and online for several years after I was advised to do Pilates to improve my bone strength.

She is a terrific, passionate teacher. She is so good at both explaining and demonstrating the different Pilates techniques. The classes are varied from week to week, with different exercises and props. My bone density has improved immensely and my consultant puts it down to my regular Pilates class. Whether for a medical reason or for fitness and flexibility, try classes with Eimear!
