Hello Everyone

I don’t know about you, but does it feel like things are improving now in this lockdown. The numbers are coming down and some of you have already had your vaccine. Spring is just around the corner, and we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel! I know it’s been hard for all of us, and we have all had our own challenges to cope with over these last few months. Let’s keep our spirits and motivation up by keeping fit and healthy. That is the one thing we have total control over. It’s not going to be long now, so let’s make plans to ensure can come out of all this feeling great!

NEW PowerPilates Masterclass, Sunday 14th February 10.00 – 11.15 am (Zoom)

Well done everyone who came along to my first PowerPilates Masterclass last weekend. I absolutely loved the challenge of putting a totally new class format together for you. We had some great feedback:

  • “Thank you thank you! We both absolutely loved the PowerPilates.  Our muscles will certainly be saying ‘thank you, thank you’ in the morning!” Georgina and Natalie Perie.
  • “Excellent class Jane. Certainly worked hard my glasses steamed up. Loved the different combination of moves” – Ann Lucas.

It was so successful, I’ve decided to run it again on Sunday 14th February at 10.00 – 11.15 am. The cost is £10 per class or a discount of £8 for 24/7 members. Please let me know asap if you would like to come along and book your place. Your place will be secured with payment. (If your loved ones are not sure what to get you for Valentines day, this masterclass and/or the one below might be a wonderful gift for you!)

PowerPilates applies all the key principles of Pilates, but in a more dynamic way to create a metabolic effect where your body burns up more calories during and after the exercise session. Dynamic PowerPilates moves will include strength work standing and on the mat, to challenge you physically and mentally, as well as challenge your balance, co-ordination, and mobility. All you will need is a mat, a band and plenty of enthusiasm. This class is targeted at those who have been exercising regularly and want a bit more of a challenge now, but of course as usual I will be providing different levels to work at. PowerPilates will be ideal for weight control as well!

Rockin’ Rollers – Foam Roller Masterclass – Saturday 20th February 11.30 am – 12.45 pm (Zoom)

I’m also going to run my successful ‘Rockin’ Rollers’ foam roller masterclass over Zoom on Saturday 20th February 11.30 am – 12.45 pm. The cost is £10 per class or a discount of £8 for 24/7 members. Please let me know asap if you would like to come along and book your place. Your place will be secured with payment.

If you don’t currently have a foam roller, I sell them here, and go do local deliveries! Please let me know. (Payment by bank transfer.) https://www.janem.co.uk/2020/05/pilates-foam-roller/

When used correctly, foam rollers provide an opportunity to further challenge the core muscles, by providing a less stable base of support. Foam rollers may also be used to massage muscles and fascia, in order to stimulate release of tension. This masterclass will include a series of specially designed Pilates foam roller exercises to help you develop your core strength beyond its current level, utilising the inherent instability of the roller to challenge your balance, in order to really fire up those stabilising muscles. Core strength is key to functional ability and reduction of risk of injury, but so too is flexibility. The masterclasses will therefore also include some lovely myofascial release work using both foam rollers and trigger point balls, focusing on those problem areas: upper back, neck and shoulders. By the end of the masterclass you really will be rockin’ your roller!

COVID Vaccination – book a place online

I am sharing this from one of my clients who wanted to let all those over 70 know they can book their vaccine online. Thanks Vin and Denise for sharing this with me.

Go to your NHS app.  Go to yellow banner at top re Covid-19 info. This will take you to a Coronavirus (Covid-19) page.  Scroll down to Vaccination and click on that.  You will need your NHS number (ten digit) to complete the questionnaire.  If you are over 70 at the moment you can get the jab in Debenhams in Folkestone.

Still keep safe and look after yourself and your family.

Happiness and Health

Jane Mackenzie
