I can’t believe we have been running Pilates classes online for a whole year this week! Well done to everyone who has joined us on our amazing online journey. I want to say a huge thank you to Mat, without whom 24/7 Online Pilates would not look as amazing as it does. He has been the one behind the camera for the last 52 weeks and working on the website to give you a continuous professional service all year long. That is just a small part of his support and there are too many jobs to mention, not to mention encouraging me and supporting me through what has been a very challenging winter, despite losing his own mother to Covid in January.
Also a big thank you to everyone who has joined us over the year on Zoom, completed the recorded classes and attended the Masterclasses and Beginners’ classes. I can honestly say you have made the whole experience a pleasure and lifted my spirits on many dark days. I have loved every smile, laugh, message and photo you have sent me over this year to motivate me to keep delivering Pilates to you. I wish I could hug every single one of you. Now we are looking at coming out of lockdown we fully anticipate that the online service will continue, and meet the needs of those who want that flexibility and reliability of being able to complete classes online at home.

NEW! Outdoor Saturday ‘PowerPilates’ Starts April 10th
Based on our recent and very successful masterclasses, and the fact that we can finally take group exercise classes outdoors from April, I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be running (initially 4) PowerPilates classes on Saturday mornings in Hythe from 10th April. Please click here for full details about this new class, and let me know if you would like to book a place: https://www.janem.co.uk/pilates/powerpilates/
Change of Time for the Zoom Beginners’ Class
A big well done all those of you who have joined my beginners Pilates in Zoom on a Saturday morning. You have all been amazing and a true pleasure to teach and introduce Pilates to. So many of you have messaged me to tell me how much your health has improved since you have been doing that class and the videos. Due to the long awaited outdoor PowerPilates classes starting up I will need to change the time to start at 10.45 am. The change will apply from Saturday 10th April.
Indoor Group Class Resuming Soon! But Availability will be Limited
All being well, we shall be resuming indoor group classes from Tuesday 18th May, and we shall be contacting you soon to invite you to book your places. Please note that those with credit from previously suspended classes are not automatically guaranteed a place on the new classes, and that places will be allocated on a ‘first come first served basis’.
Please remember that 24/7 members receive booking priority over non-members (see our Terms and Conditions for how that works). With reduced class sizes due to social distancing, it is likely that most classes will be quickly booked up, so please do consider keeping your 24/7 membership going for the best chance of securing your places. Plus of course as a 24/7 member you will receive £2 discount on every group class you attend!
NEW! Back Health Toolkit – Strengthen and Protect
We are really excited about our new Back Health Toolkit, which will be launching very soon.

Click here to learn more and read our introduction: https://www.janem.co.uk/courses/back-health-protect-and-strengthen/ Please share this with anyone you know who might have a weak back and needs to strengthen it, and also those who might wish to learn how to protect their back for long term back health. I am always happy to talk to anyone who wants some advice about this.
Lots of exciting things ahead for us, and I can’t wait to see you all again in person, especially those who haven’t been able to join me online.
