Welcome to Brìgh Pilates Studio with Karen Bryson
1-1 / 1-2 in-person studio sessions are currently suspended
due to Tier 4 restrictions.
Matwork classes continue on Zoom. New block starts week of 18 January.
Brìgh (pronounced bree) is Scottish Gaelic and has several meanings including strength, essence, substance, energy, significance, moment, point and sense, all of which are so appropriate for the practise of Pilates.
The fully equipped studio is a calm and inviting space where everyone is made to feel welcome and offers dedicated, specialised Pilates tuition from experienced qualified teachers.
You can choose from a timetable of matwork classes, and with a maximum of just nine participants there’s plenty of personal attention. All classes are friendly, fun and non-competitive for beginners through to advanced.
Traditional open studio sessions are also offered for all levels of experience where you work to your own individual programme using the large studio apparatus, a system similar to how Joseph Pilates ran his studio. These are currently operating with a maximum of only three clients per session to allow for social distancing requirements.
Private 1-1 tuition is available if you require more time and attention perhaps following injury and rehabilitation, or if you have specific athletic targets. Pregnancy and postnatal sessions are also available.
