Welcome to Our Studio

Welcome to Anne Sexton Pilates studio. We are dedicated to making your experience with Pilates as profound and life changing as our own. For close to 25 years I have been practicing and teaching Pilates and seeing first-hand the extraordinary results that our clients achieve.

All our instructors are comprehensively trained by myself on all of the equipment and handpicked to be part of our team by myself.

We love, live and breathe Pilates and whole-heartedly follow Joseph and Clara’s vision to bring its innumerable benefits to as many people as possible. At Anne Sexton Pilates we believe passionately that with regular practice Pilates will change your life just as it did ours and so many of our clients.  Pilates not only changed our lives personally, but it has also given us a great deal of enjoyment, satisfaction, and added to this the reward and fulfilment of helping our clients to become fitter and injury free is immeasurable. Pilates is an amazing form of fitness and rehabilitation.

About Anne Sexton

Anne started her journey into the health and fitness arena in 1989 when she first qualified as an ITEC & NCEF gym instructor and Exercise To Music teacher. She set up her own circuit training classes, and when she later gained a Reebok step teacher qualification she travelled around south Dublin teaching step aerobic classes. She qualified as Personal Trainer through the NCEF in conjunction with the University of Limerick in 1995. Subsequently Anne ran a very successful Personal Training business in South County Dublin from 1995 to 2010 when she opened her Pilates Studio in Roundwood Co Wicklow. Anne first qualified as a Pilates trainer with Bodyfirm Pilates in 2002 having been introduced to Pilates through rehabilitation following injury to her neck, shoulder and low back in a car accident. She was so impressed with the amazing results from her daily Pilates routine that she went on to train as a teacher.

Well now, where to begin? The first thing I will say about Anne and her team is they are experts in the field of pilates. As an accredited studio her class participants are always in safe hands. Secondly, my strength and flexibility have been transformed since I started her programme.
During lockdown Anne has been of invaluable help with her online classes. From her I have learned how to relieve the many niggles that come from too much sitting. I now understand my body better at 60 than I did when I was in my 20s! Thanks always,

I have had the pleasure of being a client of Anne Sexton’s Pilates for over ten years now. I have followed her from Roundwood to Greystones and now to Kilcoole. When you are lucky enough to find such a talented instructor you have to stay with the best. Anne’s love of Pilates and well being for our bodies is obvious in her teachings. We would have been lost without our Zoom classes during lockdown for both our physical and mental health. Thank you Anne and your team for always looking after us. 😘

I have been doing Pilates classes with Anne for more than 10 years. Now as an over 60’s I can safely say Pilates is a vital part of my life. It has given me flexibility, core strength and most of all the reformer is brilliant for bone density strengthening. Thank you Anne - you are an exceptional teacher and role model. Your own commitment to Pilates and well being spills over to us in your teaching. It’s not just an exercise class. It is now an essential part of my life and I couldn’t do without your inspiration and teaching. Thank you.


Joseph Pilates said, "Pilates is complete co-ordination of body, mind and spirit." Through attending Anne's brilliant Pilates classes over the years I have experienced the many health benefits of both mat and reformer classes. There is no doubt that the co-ordination of exercising the physical and mental in Anne's excellent provision of classes has made life during the pandemic easier to deal with. Can't wait to get back into the studio!!

I have been a regular client of Anne Sexton Pilates studio these past 10 years.
Her incomparable knowledge and understanding of her profession has helped me with a myriad of health challenges during this time.
Her tender care and patience allows me to practice at my own pace while tuning in to my body’s innate abilities.
I eagerly await the reopening of her studio and recommend her highly .

I have been interested in health and fitness for most of my adult life, and i wanted to pursue a career in this area. Having previously done reformer pilates and loved the benefits I felt from it I decided that this was the area that I intended to pursue. I started with anatomy training, followed by Mat 1 and 2, then continued with reformer 1 and 2. My experience with Anne Sexton Pilates was all extremely positive. The course is so thorough and Anne's expertise about anything to do with pilates is so obvious. Her guidance, support, and knowledge are what every person pursuing a career in pilates needs. She goes above and beyond! Can't wait for the next part of my pilates journey

I have been practicing pilates regularly with Anne for five years, firstly in Greystones and then at her lovely new studio in Kilcoole. Anne's enthusiasm for Pilates is infectious. It is so enjoyable to partake in one of Anne's many classes, be it mat, reformer, mixed equipment or her pregnancy classes. The mixed equipment class is a favourite of mine. Annes expertise is simply the best. Under Anne's guidance, my pilates practice improved and I was enjoying it so much that I decided to undertake comprehensive teacher training. It has been such an incredibly fulfilling experience so far. The training weekends are hard work but also great fun, what better way to spend a weekend than learning about pilates with three fabulous ladies. Anne is so encouraging, never failing to answer all our queries and spending as much time as it takes for us to perfect our movement. Nothing is ever a problem for Anne, if at first we dont succeed, we keep trying until it is perfect. Anne insists on every movement being executed precisely. The sense of achievement when we all passed our exams was great and to coin a now-infamous phrase, we are all in it together and support and encourage each other. I am looking forward to completing the rest of our training.
