What is the difference between ‘Regular’ and ‘Clinical’ Pilates?


Regular Pilates is conducted by a Pilates instructor, whereas Clinical Pilates is prescribed and supervised by a Physiotherapist. The difference is very important because a physiotherapist has an in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, body function and movement patterns. The physiotherapist will assess each person and determine which exercises will be the most effective for each individual. This becomes especially important if you have a history of injury such as low back pain, whiplash, hypermobility or an athlete coming back from an injury. There will be certain exercises which need to be adapted specifically for you.

Yoga for YOU – FREE Taster Sessions of our upcoming yoga classes for sporty people

Friend: “You should do yoga”

You: “yeah… but i can’t even touch my toes!”


Sound familiar? Well, maybe *this* is the yoga class for you – you’ll be in good company! And maybe you’ll be able to touch your toes a lot more comfortably by the end of the block!

We’re planning a yoga class for gym-goers and runners and those of you who know you could benefit but don’t necessarily feel like you’re suited to a regular yoga class.

So, if you’re up for a go, we promise a challenging but fun class!

This could be you!
This could be you!

To let you have a go before committing to the full block of classes, we’re holding two free taster sessions in early January – why not come along to one?

On Wednesdays 11th and 18th January at 19:00, we’ll be holding free taster sessions. Please note, booking is essential and only one session per person!

Email us or call 0141 230 4766 to book and we’ll reserve your space!

The 6-week block of yoga classes will then start officially on Wednesday, February 1st at 19:00 – You can use our new Class Cards for this too!
