Hello Everyone and welcome to 2024!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, but I’m sure you’re now looking ahead to the coming year, and all the exciting things you have planned – I certainly am! And of course, whatever activities and events these may be, our health and fitness – and especially our Pilates practice – is the key to maximising our enjoyment. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at just how quickly so many of my regulars have returned to classes this January; we’ve really hit the ground running, with some of our classes more or less full now. But I still have space on others, so if you are yet to join me, or are thinking about returning to Pilates after a longer break, you will be more than welcome! Please check my current availability here: https://www.janem.co.uk/availability/
I’m finding that my Online Pilates is becoming increasingly popular again, as people take advantage of this 24/7 service to make sure they can fit their weekly Pilates practice into their busy schedules. Remember that you can always take one of my 4 weekly Zoom classes instead of your booked face-to-face class if you ever can’t make it for whatever reason. You can also swap to a recorded class if need be, for complete flexibility. And I have more and more of you now who take advantage of my online classes to keep things going during my holidays. And speaking of holidays and my online classes!…
Online 247 Pilates – Madeira Special!
Mat and I are now taking our recording equipment with us when we go on holiday, so we can bring you special outdoor classes from sunnier climes! We have just released Week 125 – our ‘Madeira Special’, with a wonderful backdrop of palm tress and the Atlantic Ocean. Lose yourself in the moment with a lovely sunny outdoor Pilates class!
Why not have a think about joining Jane Mackenzie 24/7 Online Pilates? It’s still just £6 per week, and for that you not only receive access to approx. 130 recorded classes, Zoom classes, specials and much more, but will also receive a £2 discount on each and every face-to-face class you take with me. And last time I also mentioned my Back Health Toolkit, which now comes FREE with my 24/7 Online Pilates, and is perfect whether or not you’ve had back trouble in the past, and want to make sure it doesn’t happen in the future!
24/7 Members – don’t forget that you will receive a £10 discount off your next 4 weeks’ period if you recommend someone new who joins us!
Benefits of Pilates – U3A Presentation
If you would like to learn more about or simply remind yourself of the benefits of Pilates, please do take a look at this presentation I gave yesterday in Hythe to the local U3A group. There’s lots of information, and of course a bit of fun, too! I would also be very grateful if you could share this link with anyone you think might be interested: https://www.janem.co.uk/2024/01/benefits-of-pilates-u3a-presentation/
Upcoming Social Events
We had some wonderful social events last year, with more and more of you joining in. Let’s keep this going in 2024! (We have a WhatsApp group where I post up anything social on it. If you want to join this group let me know and I send you the link.)
- Pilates Walk Saturday 3rd February 10 am – Location to be confirmed nearer the time. I was thinking maybe a walk a bit further afield this time? If anyone has a lovely walk they know, please let me know. Walks are all free to attend, so let’s exercise and socialise together! (We often it will end at a café for those who want to have a drink afterwards.)
- Pilates Meal Out – I will be arranging a meal out too soon. Let me know if you would prefer a lunchtime or evening. Let me know if you want to come along when you come to class.
That’s all for now. 2024 will I’m sure be a fantastic year, which we shall approach with passion and positivity, knowing what a great benefit our Pilates practice has upon our lives. I look forward to seeing you all very soon, face-to-face, 1-to-1 and online!
Happiness and health
