About

About The Bridge Pilates Studio

Situated in the Birchcliffe Centre, The Bridge Pilates Studio is the first Pilates equipment studio in Hebden Bridge.

 

 

About Bryony

I was first introduced to Pilates whilst studying dance in Scotland in 2004 and found the instant benefits of practicing Pilates regularly. The exercises became a part of my daily practice and supported my studies in dance. In 2007 whilst completing postgraduate study in London, I was first introduced to studio equipment and I began taking 1-2-1s at the Laban Pilates studio every week which had amazing effects on my body.

I have always been interested in movement and after teaching dance for five years I decided to broaden my skills set and I trained in Pilates Mat work. Over the next three years I taught Mat classes across Calderdale and Bradford.  In 2014 I studied on the Full Comprehensive Studio Equipment course with Polestar Pilates which opened my eyes to a whole new way of delivering Pilates.

I am really excited to be continuing my journey in the world of Pilates and bringing my home town, Hebden Bridge, along with me. I look forward to seeing you at the studio,

1-2-1s, 2-2-1s and group sessions are scheduled for 1 hour, however if you would like to book a longer or shorter session this can be arranged by request.

 

What can I expect from my first session?

Your first 1-2-1 session is an opportunity to introduce you to the full Pilates equipment. We will look at several assessment exercises to enable me to gauge which pieces of equipment would suit you best.

Over the following weeks, we will develop your movement vocabulary on the equipment and combine your studio equipment sessions with home exercises to give you the best possible Pilates experience.

Please wear clothing that is comfortable to move in with some stretch such as leggings or jogging bottoms and a fitted top. You can either have bare feet or wear socks. I would recommend socks with grip on the bottom. These can be purchase at the studio.

No, all you need to bring is yourself and be ready to move! All the equipment you need is provided at the studio.

 

How often should I attend classes?

The World Health Organisation recommends that we exercise a minimum of three times a week. I would recommend a weekly 1-2-1 session as well as practicing Pilates at home daily. As part of your 1-2-1 experience I can develop a personal programme of exercises which you can perform at home in your own time.
