Pilates – Aberdeen & Shire Pilates classes!

SPEAR Physiotherapy offers a range of morning and evening Pilates classes in Aberdeen across our sites at Aberdeen Sports Village and our purpose-built clinic in Westhill.

Pilates is a low impact form of exercise designed to strengthen the deep abdominals and gluteal muscles, which all help to support the lower back and hips. By strengthening the core you provide your body with a strong stable base from which to move.

Physiotherapists rehabilitate clients using exercise therapy every day, so as Chartered Physiotherapists we are perfectly placed to teach Pilates classes.

At SPEAR, our team of instructor’s expert knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and training with the APPI allow us to modify exercises to suit the individual client within a class, which ensures that every client is working at a level appropriate to them.

Our Pilates classes are led by Chartered Physiotherapists Ashley Armstrong, Yasmin Milne and Siobhan Laing who have all completed Pilates training with the APPI. Laura McKay is our Pilates Coordinator, and is an APPI Certified Matwork Instructor.

Our clients think our classes are an enjoyable, convenient and great way to exercise.

‘Its amazing how much more flexible I feel’

‘I feel so much more aware of my body and my posture after class’

‘A tough class tonight, but I loved it!’

SPEAR Pilates instructors will ensure that you are challenged, but will also ensure precision and control of the exercises so that you gain maximum benefit from them.

To familiarise yourself with the 5 basic principles of Pilates, we recommend (if you have never attended a Pilates class before) that you book an appointment with one of the team to ascertain the level at which you will work in the class, and to answer any of your questions beforehand.
