Two Extra Live Zoom Classes on Wednesdays
An increasing number of you are from time-to-time requesting that you take your weekly classes online via Zoom instead of face-to-face (e.g. if isolating, unwell or you simply can’t make it in). For this reason I will therefore be offering two additional Zoom classes each week. If you wish to switch one or more of your face-to-face classes to Zoom, please let me know and I will send you the link for your preferred Zoom class. (For Jane Mackenzie 24/7 members, these additional classes will of course be free to attend, and the links can be found in the usual place. Learn more: https://www.janem.co.uk/jane247/ .)
Our new Zoom classes timetable:
- Tuesday 6.45 pm
- Wednesday 11.30 am
- Wednesday 6.00 pm
- Thursday 10.45 am
Pilates Social walk, Saturday 22nd Jan, 10.00 am
It’s been a long time since we last had a social event, so I’m very happy to announce our next Pilates Social Walk on Saturday 22nd January, starting at 10.00 am. Everyone is welcome to join me, family and friends (dogs on leads please). We will start off in Hythe, meeting at Hythe and Saltwood Sailing Club (toilets are available before we leave). We will walk along the seafront to the harbour Arm, then back along the Leas, down into Sandgate then back along the seafront to Hythe. We can get a drink at one of the cafes when we get back to Hythe if you wish. We will be outside the whole time, so this will be a much safer environment for you to socialise. The walk will still be on irrespective of the weather, so please wear appropriate clothing. Fingers crossed it will be sunny and lovely, but I can’t guarantee it!
New Pilates Bags for Sale
The easiest way to keep all your Pilates equipment together and to transport it to class! Our new Pilates bags are the perfect minimum size to hold your mat, block, balls and bands, all safely zipped up together. There are also two additional pockets on the front for all your ‘bits and pieces’, plus a handy water-bottle holder. I still have a couple in stock and a new order coming soon. Cost is £20. Please see here for more details and images: https://www.janem.co.uk/2021/12/pilates-bags/
Keeping Each Other Safe and Exercising
Thank you so much to everyone who is now doing a regular lateral flow test before coming to class, so we can all work together to keep each other safe. I’m currently testing every weekday morning for your safety, and I would very much appreciate it if you could take a test before you come to class. It’s a small inconvenience that makes a big difference to others.
Please continue to wear masks when entering and leaving class (unless those exempt). Masks don’t have to be worn when exercising, and this is not recommended. Windows will be open during class for good circulation, so please bring appropriate clothing. I am still running reduced class sizes to allow more space between you all. The government and my professional body are no longer mandating this, but I want to do everything I can to keep you safe and comfortable. I’m sure it won’t be too long before we can return to normal!
I keep our up-to-date Covid-19 safety information posted at the top of key pages of our website, so please review it from time to time.
