Elaine Dowling

Hi everyone, my name is Elaine Dowling affectionately known as Lainey and I came to study Pilates method of movement and exercise in my 50th year. I studied with the National Training Center , NTC in Dublin and I hold the Advanced Diploma in Pilates Mat work.

I am passionate about Pilates and I am fascinated with the beauty and strength of Pilates movement. Pilates is a mental and physical practice as well as a life long discipline. It is an exercise system that is suitable for all ages. I believe in strength and fitness at 20 and stronger and fitter at 60.


I am committed to the education and empowerment of those who come to my classes and I have a special interest in pre and post natal classes.

I studied facial exercises with eve fraser in London in 2013. I hold the only licence for teaching this method of facial exercises in Ireland. I teach 1:1 classes, group exercise classes and host approx 4 workshops per year. I find it just as important to exercise the muscles of your face just as you would exercise the muscles of your body. Exercising the muscles of your face will help to keep the face lifted, toned and help to remove stress and strain from your face. So come along and join in a facial exercise class. You will find it both fun and serious and a class and practice that you will come to love.
