Glasgow Pilates Classes

 

"I am new to pilates but would recommend Emma Steenson's physio-led classes to anyone. I have struggled with back and hamstring problems over the years (made worse by cycling) and the difference after only four weeks of classes is amazing. Emma is an experienced and highly regarded physio and that expertise really comes out at the class." Barrie, Kelvinside

"Having a qualified physiotherapist to show me the ropes has been a revelation. I finally "get it!" :) Emma Steenson is wonderfully patient, doesn't make you feel ridiculous, is encouraging and always smiles. So glad I found her." Fiona, Dowanhill

"I attended Emma for pain in my lower back, hips and legs and was lucky enough to choose Emma Steenson for some physiotherapy... Emma is a fantastic practitioner, knowledgeable, interested and and motivated and was a joy to work with."  Lorna, Glasgow.

"Since starting Pilates, I am truly amazed by how much of a transformation I have felt.  Even after a couple of sessions I was surprised by how easily and quickly I could identify a number of benefits, both physical and mental." Kate, West End.

"Emma's personal approach makes all the difference to me and, whether it is due to her physiotherapy training and experience or just her natural patience and teaching inclinations, I think Emma does a fantastic job with us! I could not recommend her highly enough!" Adena, Bearsden.

"I attended Emma for pain in my lower back, hips and legs and was lucky enough to choose Emma Steenson for some physiotherapy.  Over the next few months Emma listened and asked many questions on every aspect of my life to identify possible issues which were contributing to or causing my problems.  At each appointment she administered hands-on treatment, massaging and manipulating my back and legs.  I was also given a few exercises to do in between visits.  I honestly didn't believe that things would improve as I had been in pain for so long and had had physiotherapy previously.  However within one month the constant daily pain had almost gone.  Over the subsequent months we continued with treatment to the point where I have been able to resume exercising and now armed with advice from Emma on posture, exercises, a workplace assessment etc I feel positive once more.  Emma is a fantastic practitioner, knowledgeable, interested and and motivated and was a joy to work with."  Lorna, Glasgow.

 

"Since starting Pilates, I am truly amazed by how much of a transformation I have felt.  Even after a couple of sessions I was surprised by how easily and quickly I could identify a number of benefits, both physical and mental.  I think it's important for me to emphasise how lucky I have been to start and continue Pilates with Emma.  Having Emma as a Pilates instructor has made the experience as good as it has been, classes with Emma allow me to learn technique, improve my fitness and health and importantly,the classes are enjoyable.  The benefits of pilates have surpassed my expectations entirely, and I attribute part of that to having Emma as an instructor." Kate, West End.

 

"I am one of those people moaning about exercise classes -I don't like them as they are usually ineffective, much as some are quite good fun. Before coming to Emma's class, I had tried a couple of Pilates classes but was always disappointed with how little they did for me -in fact, I knew that the problem was me not understanding the instructions very well, but I was not willing to do any reading prior to the class to understand what those positions were all about. Emma, however, was really patient explaining the positions and then correcting them for each and every one of us. This personal approach makes all the difference to me and, whether it is due to her physiotherapy training and experience or just her natural patience and teaching inclinations, I think Emma does a fantastic job with us! I could not recommend her highly enough!" Adena, Bearsden.

 

"I went to Emma ( physiotherapist ) first as a patient as I had a hip injury which prevented me from participating in exercise for six months. After one treatment session and following her exercises I joined her pilates classes. I have been to pilates before in a leisure centre but found Emma's class so much more beneficial and enjoyable.

Emma explains the exercises in easy to follow steps.  She checks to see if you are doing the exercises correctly and safely.  Emma's pilates class has greatly improved my posture, core strength and toned my stomach and bum.  Previous to starting Emma's pilates class I was able to cycle for one minute at a time before the pain in my hip/buttock hit.  Last week I cycled around Millport, painfree.  The following day I could run five miles without pain.  Thanks Emma!"

"I have thoroughly enjoyed Pilates with Emma.  I started attending as I was suffering from extremely uncomfortable neck and shoulder pain due to poor posture from work.  Pilates has helped me immensely and has made me much more aware of my posture.  I find myself checking my posture and remedying several times throughout the day.  Emma's classes are very good and she is such a fantastic teacher.  It is great being able to see yourself develop each week and building up strength.  Emma is very encouraging and the classes are designed so that you can modify each exercise if necessary, until you are ready to progress to each level."
