About Us.

about_us

Penny Withers Studio was established in 2003 and is situated in a Victorian townhouse in Glasgow’s popular park area.

The instructors at Penny Withers Studio all come from a ballet or dance background. We feel this gives us a unique insight into effective movement patterning and, having spent years watching others move in very specific ways, the ability to see and comprehend how our clients are moving. However this does not mean our clients have to have any sort of dance experience themselves. We work with people from all sorts of different occupations who come to the studio for a wide variety of reasons – general fitness, rehabilitation, stress relief to name but a few. All find the Gyrotonic system beneficial and enjoyable.

At some stage in our careers we have regrettably incurred injuries. Whilst traumatic at the time this experience provides us with firsthand knowledge not only of the physical but also the psychological aspects involved in rehabilitation allowing us to relate and support clients who come to us in pain or after an injury or surgery. We are adept at breaking down movements and then rebuilding them, continuously refining them in the process. At the other end of the scale we are also used to the pressure elite athletes apply to their training regime and are more than happy to support a rigorous physical programme.

Location

The central location offers ease of access using road, rail or bus and on street parking is available at a cost of 50p for 70 minutes (no charge at weekends and after 6.00pm). The studio offers a warm and welcoming environment in which individual needs are paramount. The tranquility of the setting allows for maximum concentration whilst a calm and relaxing atmosphere pervades.
