with Fiona O’Dwyer


Bringing Pilates to Galway Since 1999

My name is Fiona O’Dwyer, and I have taught Pilates in Galway for 23 years, delivering a variety of treatments to both individuals and groups. All private sessions are adapted specifically to you and your needs, with me adjusting accordingly as we go along. This established body conditioning exercise can be used for a series of issues, such as menopause, back pain, injury rehabilitation, women’s health, or tight muscles. I work from two locations in Galway and also offer online sessions to those who prefer exercising from the comfort on their own home, offering a range of packages and recordings to suit individual requirements. My service also includes personal training.

About Pilates

Pilates is a popular body conditioning exercise that involves a variety of movements designed to tone and rebalance your core muscles. While often used to rectify certain issues, like back pain, Pilates is essentially about making your body feel better overall, and is generally used as a supplement to other forms of exercise like resistance training.

To learn more about how Pilates works and its benefits, take a look at my About Pilates page for more information.



I offer one-to-one Pilates sessions to individuals who need help with a certain issue. We will discuss your specific condition, what you wish to get out of Pilates, ahead of coming up with an exercise plan going forward tailored to you.


Many prefer to practice Pilates in a group setting, and I offer a range of classes, running groups consisting of anywhere between three or 15 people. These sessions are more general than one-to-one Pilates, with an overall emphasis on toning muscles and stretching.


Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, many have found Pilates online to be extremely useful, and even preferable to in-person sessions. I run a number of zoom sessions every week, with recordings available for people to have and use at their own pace whenever they like. Various packages are available.


Along with Pilates in Galway, I am also a fully qualified Personal Trainer, offering personalised sessions for individuals, such as resistance training for women experiencing menopause.
