Hello Everyone

Those who have been on holiday or taking time out to be with family, welcome back to your Pilates classes! I know I have been saying summer will arrive soon, but I do believe we are going to be outside this week for those classes with an outdoor space. Whether we are inside or out, the temperature is going to be pleasantly warm with some sunshine at last. Let’s hope the sunshine and warmer weather lasts a while now.

Classes w/c 15th August: Chair, Weights and Relaxation

Next week’s classes, commencing 15th August, will use hand weights to add additional resistance to our exercises. We will also incorporate some chair-based relaxation at the end. We now have both 1 kg and 1.5 kg hand weights available in our shop. Purchase yours now and I will bring them to class for you:  https://www.janem.co.uk/shop/ . (You can alternatively bring your own, or use food tins of small water bottles. If you prefer not to use weights at all, you can of course complete the exercises without them.)

 New Class in Sellindge Starting Soon!

I’m excited to announce that I shall soon be starting a brand-new Pilates class at Sellindge Sports and Social Club on Tuesday mornings at 10.45. I’m just waiting for the final go-ahead from the club committee, and if OK I plan to start it around the end of September. If you know of anyone who might be interested in this, please do pass this on. It’s a lovely venue with a beautiful view, and has recently been refurbished.
