Welcome to Brigh Pilates Studio with Karen Bryson
Brigh (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 each with a maximum of just nine participants allowing plenty of personal attention. All classes are friendly, fun and non-competitive for beginners through to more advanced levels.
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 with up to 4 or 5 other clients in the studio, a system similar to how Joseph Pilates ran his studio.
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.
Weekly matwork classes are also taught in Greenock in Inverclyde.
NEWS - the new block will start the week of 6th May.
With the addition of a new beginners class on Mondays at 10am and also on Thursdays at 9.30am the studio now offers a choice of 15 matwork classes for all levels.
Full details are on the timetable pages, where the booking form can be printed.
The Monday classes are taught by two fantastic, fully qualified matwork teachers Becky and Jayne.
Jayne undertook her Pilates Foundation matwork training at Vanessa Smith Pilates Studio and Becky trained at the Brigid McCarthy Pilates studio.
Open apparatus sessions are also up and running, the Saturday morning session is ideal if you can't manage along during the week.
