Hello Everyone

Welcome to the festive month. Christmas has come around so quickly this year, or is it just me?! It’s so nice to see more of you back in class after your autumn holidays getaways, or just coming back to Pilates after a long break.

Price Changes for 2022

I will reluctantly need to make a small increase to the price of our Pilates classes from the start of 2022. Classes purchased as part of a block will increase by 50p each, and individual classes by £1. The cost of 24/7 online Pilates will increase by 50p per week. (The £2 discount on all group classes for 24/7 members will remain.). One-to-one session prices will increase by £2. My new 2022 price list is below:

  • Group classes: block of 4: £32.00** (or £24 for 24/7 members)
  • Group classes: single class: £9.00** (or £7 for 24/7 members)
  • 24/7 Online Pilates: 28 day membership: £22
  • One-to-one Pilates: £50 Premium or £42 Standard

The new prices will apply to purchases made from 1st January 2022, so if you would like to take advantage of the current prices for a bit longer, please feel free to purchase additional blocks of classes before the end of the year.

**Please note that I require at least 7 days’ notice to transfer a pre-paid class to a different week, although if not I will try and slot you into another class during the same week only if I have space. If you ever need to change a class, please can you use this form:  https://www.janem.co.uk/pilates/class-change-request/

Christmas Social Lunches

I have thought about what we can do this year to socialise, whilst being mindful of keeping us all as safe as possible. I know some might still feel a little uncomfortable, so I have decided to offer two lunch/brunch-time events in large, well ventilated spaces (please wear warm clothing appropriate to keeping windows and doors open). Everyone is welcome to come along to either social.  Please let me know which one you would like to attend.  I will have a list in class, or just message me.

  • Tuesday 14th December 11.00 – 12.00 pm at Hythe and Saltwood Sailing Club – Food will be prepared by ‘The Loaf’. They are just getting back to me on the price, but I would expect it to be approximately £10 per head. I will let you know when I find out.
  • Thursday 16th December 12.00 – 1.00 pm at Hythe Cricket Club – Please bring your own food and drink to share.

The government recommend that anyone attending an indoor social event take a lateral flow test beforehand, and I ask that you please do so for these events. I also ask everyone to remain respectful of social distancing with others, and to maintain good hand hygiene. Please do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms of viral infection (e.g. coughs or colds).

Forthcoming Pilates Class Themes

Below are the themes for classes during the next two weeks. The use of equipment is optional as always, and all exercises will be demonstrated without equipment first, so please don’t worry if you don’t have it.

  • Week/Commencing Tues 7th Dec – ‘Stretch, Release and Relaxation’ – you might want to bring so other equipment along – trigger point balls, a band, block, foam roller or long towel, eye mask, blanket.
  • Week/Commencing Tues 14th Dec – ‘Weights’ – bring along light hand weights or tins of beans etc. You could use water bottles, too. If you do bring along tins for the class, you can optionally to leave them with me, to donate to a local food bank.

Christmas Timetable

Pilates classes this year will be running as normal, right up until Thursday 23rd December inclusive. I shall then be taking a week off over the Christmas and New Year period, with classes restarting as normal from Tuesday 4th January. By popular request I will be delivering our Christmas candlelight classes the week before Christmas to ease you into the Christmas weekend. Christmas attire is encouraged, but as always optional. I think there might be an elf attending this year! A summary of my Christmas class timetable is below:

  • Classes up until Thursday 23rd December inclusive – running as normal
  • Tuesday 28th December – classes cancelled
  • Wednesday 29th December – classes cancelled
  • Thursday 30th December – classes cancelled
  • Tuesday 4th January onwards – running as normal

Remember you can always join 247 over the Christmas week. You will have 11 days access to over 70 videos you can complete as many times as you like, the exercise data base, and the weight control information and tracker. All this for only the cost of one class. If you haven’t used 247 Pilates before, this is a great opportunity to try it and find out how it can benefit you.
