Pilates Body Conditioning

Sylvie also teaches Chair (seated) Pilates

Chair Pilates is ideal for older people and groups in assisted living accommodation.

Exercises help with posture, mobility, strength and balance for day to day living.

We are very pleased that Pilates classes re-started again on May 17th. Of course there are still strict distancing and hygiene measures and you still need to book a place - see below.

We realise that some of you may not want to return to class yet, so there are still 14 Pilates sessions available online, if you want to keep working at home. You will find links to them below.

Class times & locations:

Booking   We are still required to keep records of everyone who comes to a class for track and tracing purposes, and there will have to be a maximum of 13 per class to maintain social distancing, so you must let us know if you plan to come.  If you would like to make a reservation for classes in the Summer Term, or cancel one, please use this booking form. You could also phone or email. We are asking you to give at least 24 hours notice.

Precautions  If there is another class in the hall when you arrive, please wait in your car or the car park  (depending on the weather!) until they have left the building. Please enter the lobby one at a time and use the hand sanitizer before coming into the hall, observing social distance at all times.

Equipment  Please make sure that you bring all the equipment you need - mat, towel, stretch band or scarf, cushion or block (if required) and drinking water - so that numbers of items that are borrowed and will have to be re- sanitised is kept to the minimum. And please wear socks.

Payments   In order to keep cash handling to a minimum, please pay for classes online, if possible. If you don’t have Sylvie’s bank details please email a request for them. If you are going to use cash please try to bring the correct amount, £7.50, if you can. A limited amount of sanitized change will be available. You could also use the PayPal app on your phone, if you have it, to make a payment to
