We have been extremely lucky to have Ash join our team of rockstar Pilates instructors.

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. Aisling’s interest in sport and leisure began at secondary school, when she represented Ireland at netball and was a member of the State hockey team. 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. She relocated to the west of Ireland for her love of surfing, yoga and Pilates and opened a Pilates studio.

Her experience includes, programs specifically for surf athletes, Iron man, Irish dancers, swimmers, GAA (Gaelic football) teams, older clients and clients who have been referred from Allied Health and medical practitioners with specific injuries.

Aisling relocated to Melbourne in 2013, is now a Level 4 APMA member and continues to share her passion for teaching Pilates and educating clients on how to apply what they learn in the studio to the every day things that they do, to obtain the benefits long term.
