Eilish graduated with an honours degree in Physiotherapy from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen in 2010. There were very few employment opportunities in Ireland for physiotherapists at the time and Eilish moved to Bristol where she worked as a physiotherapist in a health clinic, it was here she developed an interest in Pilates.
After two years in Bristol Eilish returned to her home town of Cork and began working in a private practice in Ballincollig as a physiotherapist and started teaching Physio Pilates classes in Cork. What started off as a small venture, one class a week in the waiting area of the clinic developed into six successful classes over three different locations around Cork city and county.
Eilish is committed to keeping up to date with developments in the Pilates world and attends regular Pilates courses. She plans in detail each class, ensuring enough repetition to allow perfection of technique as well as enough variety to ensure each class is a new challenge.
Eilish has treated many clients who presented with various injuries and symptoms over her years in practice and has successfully prescribed Pilates classes and home exercise programmes to allow clients to manage their own recovery and be in control of their body.
Eilish lives in West Cork with her family where she runs a small clinic from home, she continues to practice in Ballincollig two days a week and teaches Physio Pilates classes in Ballincollig, Bandon and Butlerstown as well as her latest addition of online classes.
