pearcartoonFind your trainers, dust off your Pilates mats, classes start back again tomorrow. Looking forward to catching up with you all after our break, and doing some PILATES!

more rolling this week…

A second week with the foam rollers and I’ve received some very positive feedback from people who have felt the benefits of using them. Although they can be uncomfortable to lie on, it seems it’s worth it for most!  People reported feeling taller, more open across the chest and more mobile around shoulders. I had 20 requests to order some , so good to know people want to practice at home. They arrived this week and I’ll be bringing them to classes next week for those who ordered one. There is a 10 minute roller routine which you can download here, which has 6 of the exercises we have done in class over the last fortnight Foam Roller 10 Minute routine

Feedback results…..

Thanks to everyone who took the opportunity to fill in a feedback form . It was very interesting and hugely useful to me for planning future classes.  The thing that struck me most was just how different everyones’ experience of pilates is and how varied and specific the benefits to each.  No 2 forms were the same. It reminds me that our pilates journey is absolutely unique to each of us, as no 2 bodies are the same! There were some good ideas of practical elements to add to the classes, and it’s given me plenty to think about.   The feedback summaries for each class can be downloaded here if you’re interested :  feedback weobley       feedback kingsland   feedback forbury 10am feedback forbury 11.30   feedback eardisland wed     feedback eardisland fri

Pilates in Herefordshire this week..

therabandimageWe used the Therabands in my mixed level pilates classes this week, focusing on upper body strength and shoulder stabiising.

My Kington class for gardeners had fun with the foam rollers and from the feedback I received afterwards,  felt the postural benefits of using this great piece of equipment. Next week is our last class at Hergest Croft for this year (and my birthday!), so coffee and cake afterwards for all who can make it. The gardens at Hergest are looking stunning with the autumn colours, well worth a visit before it closes for the winter next Sunday (2nd Nov). (www.hergest.co.uk)hergesttrees

My 2 new beginners classes in Leominster are making good progress and starting to master the pilates technique. Both classes are full at present.
