27 March – 1 April

Dear <<First Name>>,

We’re officially into Spring – hope everyone remembered to move the clocks forward.  Although we’ll be feeling the loss of an hour’s sleep today, it will be wonderful to be able to enjoy lighter evenings – a sure sign that summer is on the way!

Spring is always a great time to shake off winter sluggishness – and for some of us, the winter blues.  Exercise really helps us to do that and can, of course, take many forms.  Some of us will be thinking about our gardens, while others will be finalising their training for the London marathon or the Cycle London events.  Others will be thinking of leisurely walks in the parks, or by the river.

Whatever your exercise goals are, we can help you achieve them.  Take advantage of the lighter mornings by joining one of our Online Classes on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 7.30am.

If you’re more of an owl than a lark, take advantage of the lighter evenings by joining one of our Reformer Plus classes on Tuesday evenings at 6pm or 7pm.  And if you’re new to Reformer Pilates, you can join our Reformer Fundamentals class on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm.

Check out our timetable below.  Don’t see a time that suits you?  Let us know – if it’s possible for us to open another class, we’ll certainly consider doing that.

We are always thrilled to hear from potential new clients.  If you’re thinking of trying Pilates, whether to complement rigorous cardio training, to overcome back pain, returning from injury, or following childbirth, we’d love to help you achieve your goals.  As a physiotherapy-led studio, with teachers who have years of experience of helping clients of all ages and backgrounds, we are ideally placed to help you.

You can take advantage of one of one of our introductory offers and can enjoy either:
2 x one hour long 1:1 sessions for £99; or
1 x one hour long 1:1 session and 1 x Reformer Plus class for £60

Have a great week and we look forward to seeing you in the studio or online soon!

This week we’re taking a closer look at the Arm Series in Tall Kneeling.

At face value, it appears that this series of exercises is aimed at mobilising and strengthening our arms and shoulders.  That’s true in part, but there are many ways of achieving this.

So why do we do this movement in tall kneeling?  In tall kneeling, particularly facing backwards, we are challenging our balance and proprioceptionour core stability and our ability to open up our hip flexors.

Balance is more challenging in tall kneeling, so we need to be able to access core muscles to maintain a good posture.  We also be working our quadriceps (at the front of our thighs) to maintain balance and stability.  If our quadriceps or back are tight, we may find it difficult to open up our hip flexors, which may make this exercise more challenging.

That’s why all of the other movements in our current program are aimed at opening our hips – think about the lungesbridging‘climb-a-tree’.  So, by the time we reach the Kneeling Ams series, many of us will be well-placed to find the form we need to perform the exercises well.

For those of us who may still be struggling, we have the box in front of our thighs, for support and to aid proprioception.  We can also place our fingertips on the box for additional support.

Our teachers have lots of ideas to help you find your flow in Kneeling Arms – including some ideas for home practice!  If this is something you’d like to do, have a word with your teacher who will be happy to offer some suggestions.

If you’d like to experience the Kneeling Arms series, book your place at one of our Reformer Plus classes.  If you’re new to Reformer Pilates and want to know what it’s all about – book into our Reformer Fundamentals Class to find out more!
