Unified Pilates was founded by Pilates and Fitness Professional, Alice Connaire. With a background in Health & Exercise Studies, Personal Training and Fitness Management, Alice has been teaching Pilates to clients of diverse abilities and levels since 2003 while working for Reformer Pilates Studios in Dublin. She applies her knowledge to achieve the most enjoyable and beneficial movement experience for her clients and has also helped pre & post natal women move better since 2013.
Passionate about the depth of exploration the Pilates repertoire has to offer, Alice never stops learning and honing her skills. Having rehabilitated from hip surgery, she immersed herself in further pre & post natal comprehensive study in 2016. Experiencing the challenges a post-natal journey can bring first hand, following the birth of her daughter, she has grown ever more aware of the physical challenges new mums are facing.
With over 2,000 study hours, international comprehensive Pilates certifications and over 10,000 practice hours, there is no denying that Alice, breathes, sleeps and eats Pilates. Just in case, you were wondering… that is a wholesome diet … of ‘’Pie & Lattes” of course for the sleep deprived new mum.

“I make it my priority to allow each and every client of mine to feel comfortable with the body they are in, to appreciate their Pilates journey for the beautiful gift that they have made to themselves. This means taking time out to explore how you move and understand how our lifestyle choices and life’s challenges impact our mind and body every day.
I will simply give you the tools you need, when you need them to navigate through this and trust that, you in turn, will commit to yourself fully during these sessions. You will be amazed at how much better you feel after only 10 sessions.
Unified Pilates is not a Bootcamp class or ‘sweat it out type group fitness class’ where we demand you give‘5 more reps’. Pilates will challenge your stability and strength from the inside out. You will leave your classes feeling stronger and more aware of your every day movements, holding yourself straighter and more energized to take on the day ahead. As if this wasn't reason enough to get excited, you will also find yourself entering a zone of complete focus and concentration, thus reducing stress and calming the mind. I am excited to embark on this fun journey with you! “

"Alice is an incredible Instructor with a wealth of knowledge around Pilates, particularly Pre-& Post natal Pilates movement and anatomy. You always feel like you are in safe hands in one of Alice's Pilates sessions. She is a beautiful person and you will always leave the mat feeling stronger, more aligned and more confident in your movement"
"Alice's classes are brilliant and tough. What I like is that she changes it from week to week and goes around the class to make sure we are all doing the exercises correctly - which is great for me as I have an injury. Alice is one of the best, very friendly, professional and she has a lovely way about her!"
