Good to be back on the mats with my classes again!
Online classes are invaluable but for me the magic lies in being in the same physical space….seeing those facial expressions, hearing the heavy breathing and sharing laughs! We’re into our fourth week of Pilates PLUS classes and I’m already seeing improvements….people going lower in their lunges, deeper in their squats, progressing their planks and choosing heavier weights. Good stuff. Weeks 5 and 6 will challenge you even further!
Leominster Community Centre is providing us with a safe well ventilated space to exercise . We all have our own equipment, and plenty of space to spread out. I think it’s fair to say there’s less risk coming to a class than going shopping or eating out.
Just as important, we are getting to reap the many benefits of group exercise…support, motivation, encouragement and socialising. After months of strong messages keeping us separate, classes are helping us reconnect through movement which has huge benefits for our mental health. Any benefits to our mental health inevitably boosts our immune systems and we all need that right now as we head into winter .
The two classes I’m running are both full, but more classes may start up in the new year so do register your interest if you are thinking of returning to Pilates with me or joining for the first time. I’d love to see you on the mat.
Meanwhile I’ve had requests for private sessions, and so every Thursday morning in October I shall be available for personal training sessions. These will be based at Leominster Community Centre .
Time slots are : 9.30- 10.30, 11-12am, 12.30 – 1.30pm . October 8th is booked up but subsequent weeks have availability so get in touch if I can help you with your health and fitness goals, whether that’s getting more toned, losing lockdown weight, improving your bone density or just moving more freely with less aches and pains!
The studying I did during the summer in women’s health has given me so many tools and science based knowledge, to help improve the wellbeing of women going through midlife, from sleep improvement, fitness, nutrition, mindset, and hormone balancing. Again if this is something you might find helpful, book yourself a slot and come join me one Thursday or give me a ring for more details on 01568 615239.
Wishing you a colourful Autumn.
