What’s on this week: 13 – 18 November


What’s on this week: 13 – 18 November

Let’s do the Splits!
Dear <<First Name>>,

As we sink into the rather gloomy November days, it’s a real boost to see everything start to light up.  It’s often a joy (sometimes a shock!) to see the first Christmas tree adorning someone’s home.  But before we get there, it’s the Festival of Diwali this weekend – the festival of lights.  We hope that those celebrating have a wonderful time with loved ones, full of happiness and togetherness.

Before long, Kingston will be lit up with Christmas lights and everything will start to get that bit more frantic in the build-up.  It can be both an exciting and stressful time, so it’s really important to take some time for self-care.  We can help – join one of our early morning Online Classes, or any of our Reformer Classes and focus for an hour on your own wellbeing.  Take a look at the full class timetable below and book your place below. 

If you’re planning a an ice-skating excursion this Winter, our new Front Splits program will help you flow across the ice!  For those of us not into ice-skating, the Program is great for strength and balance – really important as we face the prospect of slippery footpaths in Winter! You’ll get a flavour of the Program from the snapshots above and can read more about it Community Corner below!

Have a wonderful week and we look forward to seeing you in the studio or online.

All Things Pilates Community Corner!

We have been introducing our new Find Your Flow® Program this week – we’ve called it the Front Splits Program.  We didn’t design it with ice-skating excursions in mind, but we do think it’s a perfect fit for anyone lucky enough to be heading to Hampton Court (or any other) ice-rink over the festive season!  You’ll be the star of the show as you glide across the ice!

It’s not all about ice-skating!  Front Splits has enormous benefits in day to day activities.  Crucial to staying upright – particularly as we head into Winter – practising Front Splits will help improve our balance and stability.  It also helps improve strength and flexibility – not just in our legs, but in core muscles too.  Exercise in any form, can be hugely beneficial for our mental wellbeing, so important in the darker months.  For many of us, setting and achieving an exercise challenge provides a real boost to our confidence and self-esteem.

As always, we’ll layer on the complexity and challenge of each movement as we find our form.  In the early weeks of the program, as we’re finding our form, we’ll be mobilising our spinefinding length and spirals in core muscles, and opening our hips into extension, all while working on building strength and flexibility and improving our balance.

As we gain strength, stamina and confidence, we’ll play with the springs to increase the challenge.  We may feel confident to balance without using our hands for support – but don’t worry if you’re not ready for that – we all work at our own pace.

We’ve had great fun developing and practising this program and the teachers have some great modifications in mind for anyone needing them.  Thanks for sharing your feedback on how much you’ve enjoyed your first experience of the new program – we hope you’ll love it just as much over the next few weeks!  (We’re already planning the next one – ready to roll into the new year – there’s a clue there – watch this space…!)

If you’d like to experience the challenge and fun of the Front Splits Program, book your place in one of our classes below – we’d love to share it with you.
