Spring News 2017

New date for start of next Pilates lessons

Hello Lovely Clients!  Long time no hear!

The start of my next lot of classes will now have to be postponed to the Autumn.

In the meantime N.B.  I AM STILL CURRENTLY TAKING PRIVATE CLIENTS AT HOME ON A       1-TO-1 BASIS FOR FLOOR WORK.  This applies to all sorts of individuals: male, female, pre- and post-natal women with babies, and all ages and levels of ability and/or experience.  Please telephone or e-mail for an appointment.  My contact details are on the right hand side of this page.

I am hoping to restart the Wednesday morning Drop-In class in September or October 2017.

I wanted to let you know, and also to let you know that I miss you all madly and I hope you are managing to do some exercises at home.

If in doubt…………always practice your Pelvic Floor!   Go to MAX and then come down to Level 1 and hang on to it AND be able to breathe using your ribcage 🙂   Happy Days!

Very much looking forward to seeing you all before the year is out.  Have a great Spring and Summer and hope to see you all beautifully suntanned in the Autumn.

Last night – The Christmas Party

​What a blast we had!!!

Thank you to all who came to the Not The Pilates Christmas Dinner last night. I enjoyed myself enormously and in the company of SUCH lovely people, how could I not? I managed to speak to all of you which was such a delight and you were all happy and smiling and enjoying yourselves too. You all looked lovely……..in your clothes!!!!!

Certain people stand out from last night, there were two special people who won the raffle, congratulations to Leslie and Sue, and one very special person who took enjoying the glitz just one step further than the rest of us……….the lovely Leora who unfortunately managed to swallow one of the stars from the table! She has assured me today that she is fine. There was also of course the lovely Pamela who at 87 still does Pilates with me and took pride of place – let’s hope we are ALL still doing Pilates at that age!

Thank you for all your good wishes for tomorrow and what is to follow.
