Firstly, a big Thank You to everyone who kindly contributed to our food bank donation this October. I’ve taken everything in now, and this will make a real difference to people’s lives. I plan to run another collection in late January.
What to Bring to Class w/c 31st October – Release, Stretch and Relax
We will optionally be using Trigger Point balls and/or Foam Rollers in this class to help release our muscles. If you would like to purchase some TP balls or a roller from me, you can do so from my online shop: https://www.janem.co.uk/shop/equipment/trigger-point-balls-pair/ . These are the correct density of ball for this purpose (other types you may find are too hard). In both cases I can bring them to class for you. You don’t have to bring both balls and roller to class, just one or the other. (I do also have a few spare you can try if you haven’t used them before.)
Please let me know by Thursday 2nd November if you would like to join us, then I can select and book our venues.
- Christmas dinner – Fri 1st December, 7.00 pm, Folkestone
- Christmas lunch – Thurs 7th December, 12.00 pm, Hythe

Keep up your Pilates over the Holiday
I will be practicing my own Pilates whilst on holiday, and you can continue yours, too, through Jane Mackenzie 24/7 Online Pilates! For the price of two classes, you can have access for 18 days to over 120 full hour classes plus lots of convenient half-hour classes, our data base of over 70 exercises, exercise challenges, my Back Health Toolkit and weight control resources. Take as many classes as you like – whenever you like. So many of you now are taking advantage of this great offer to continue your Pilates whilst we are on holiday. Please let me know by Tuesday 12th December so we can set you up with a login and password. https://www.janem.co.uk/jane247/
Price Changes for 2024
There will be a small increase to the price of our Pilates classes from the start of 2024, as hall rental fees and other costs have risen considerably over the last year. Classes purchased as part of a block will increase by 50p each. Individual classes remain the same. One-to-one session prices will increase by £4. The cost of 24/7 Online Pilates will remain the same. My new 2024 price list is as below:
- Group classes: block of 4: £36.00** (or £28 for 24/7 members)
- Group classes: single class: £10.00** (or £8 for 24/7 members) (Unchanged)
- 24/7 Online Pilates: 28-day membership: £24 (Unchanged)
- One-to-one Pilates: £58 Premium or £48 Standard
The new prices will apply to purchases made from 1st January 2024, 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 and only if I have space. (You can also do a Zoom class during that same week if you prefer.) If you ever need to change a class, please can you use this form: https://www.janem.co.uk/pilates/class-change-request/
I look forward to seeing you all in class very soon.
Happiness and health
