Eardisland pilates class went ahead as usual today, despite the road to the village being blocked off both ends, meaning detours and encounters with reluctant workmen….it’ll take more than that to stop 13 pilates women with strong cores from getting to pilates!
Good to get back to classes again this week, after the break and to catch up with everyone. It’s been a full week with 2 new beginners classes starting in Leominster, both full. My Kington class for gardeners continued at Hergest Croft where we used pilates poles to practice safe digging and lifting techniques, ready for those autumn jobs in the garden. It was Maureens last class as she moves to Abingdon for new adventures and to carry on with her pilates, I’m glad to hear. Very best of luck Maureen, it’s been a pleasure now show your new instructor what you can do! Eardisland class today was missing Pete who’s recovering in hospital, get well soon Pete and best wishes to you and Ann.
Week 12 of pilates for gardeners and as it was the last one for a few weeks, we learned a 10 minute routine which can be practised at home ( download here 10-minute-routine ) It makes a good warm up before starting those gardening jobs or for stretching out those aching muscles after the works done!
Great news, there is enough interest to continue the classes for another 6 weeks, starting Thurs Sept 25th. As we approach Autumn there are usually plenty of jobs to do in the gardens, so pilates will help keep spines flexible and cores strong to avoid injuries! Thanks to Jill for organising the classes at Hergest Croft, and for being happy to continue for another term.
Safe and happy gardening all…..
