Aisling grew up on the East coast of Ireland and studied a Bachelor degree in Sports and Recreation Management in Glasgow University Scotland. She returned to Ireland to manage leisure centers on the east coast of Ireland.

She graduated with a NCEF (National Certificate in Exercise and Fitness) & ITEC (Qualification in line with the European qualifications framework, in sports therapy & personal training).

After suffering from a freak accident and breaking her hip, her interest became focused on pre- and rehabilitation with Pilates becoming her passion after experiencing the benefits first hand. Aisling graduated with the NCEHS National Qualification in Pilates Mat (Michael King Pilates) in 2004 and has been teaching ever since.

Aisling continued to train extensively with many other Pilates training providers, has graduated as a yoga instructor, YSS  (A Yoga Sports Science) coach, a GP exercise referral specialist, and a BASI (Body Arts Science International) Pilates instructor.
