What’s on this week: 4 – 11 December

Rolling Waves!
Dear <<First Name>>,

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  The Christmas tree is adorning the Studio, bringing festive cheer on these cold days!  We are also enjoying the lights in Kingston and festive lights appearing in homes – it’s such a welcome sight during the darker days of Winter.

Christmas is, of course, also a time for giving.  Whether it’s a gift to thank someone for their support over the year, or something special for a loved on, our Gift Certificates are the perfect present!  They’re such an original gift and for some recipients, they have proved to be a first step towards regular Pilates classes.  You can buy your gift certificate below.

Although it’s a wonderful time of year, for some of us and for all sorts of reasons, it can also be a stressful time too.  It’s so important to take some time for self-care, not only over the festive season, but throughout the Winter months.  Coming along to a regular Pilates class will not only support your physical wellbeing, but it’s also a great mood-booster.  In classes, we have a ready-made cheer squad, with everyone supporting each other to achieve their best that day.

Bookings in the run-up to Christmas are now live – we plan to stay open until Saturday 23 December.  Subject to demand, we may need to amend the class timetable for that week.  It would be really helpful if you could update your attendance so that we can manage the diary to ensure that it suits as many clients as possible – thanks!

We had some great feedback on our Mountain Climber exercise – thank you.  It seems that quite a few of you are adding it to your regular home practice.  We’re thrilled to hear that and for any of you not sure how to practise this movement at home, have a word with your teacher – they’d be delighted to help!

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

Gift Certificates

At Christmas time many of us are considering health and wellbeing.  So why not consider the gift of a healthy spine!  Our gift certificates can be purchased for any value and can be used in payment for any of our services – whether 1:1 sessionsduet (2:1) sessions or classes.

We tend to see quite a lot of duet sessions after Christmas, with friends and family supporting each other in achieving their health goals in a new year.  It’s always a real boost to have a cheer squad helping you reach your goals – and even better if they’re in the Studio working with you!

It’s also great to see a group of friends booking into Reformer Classes together.  It brings a unique energy to the class as everyone cheers each other along.  While working hard, there’s also time for laughter as everyone gets to grips with what can be, at first, rather unusual movements!

If you’re new to the Studio you can take advantage of any of our introductory offers:
2 x 1:1 sessions for only £99;
2 x 2:1 (duet) sessions for £118.50 – that’s less than £30 per person per session
1 x 1:1 and 1 Reformer Class for £60 – that’s cheaper than 2 single reformer classes!

You can buy your Gift Certificate (for any value) below and you’ll get an electronic copy of the certificate.  If you’d like your Gift Certificate in a gift envelope, you can either collect it  in the Studio, or we can post the Certificate to you.

All Things Pilates Community Corner!

One of our go-to movements at the start of a class is the Wave to Plank movement.  It’s a gorgeous movement to help ease into stiff muscles and joints.  In Reformer classes, we tend to do it with our hands holding the foot-bar.  In Mat classes, we do it against a chair – either against the back of a chair or the seat of a chair, or on the floor, depending on the experience we’re looking for.

We send our sit bones out behind us, allowing our arms to reach long.  We take a couple of breaths there and gently roll our hips to ease tension.  We then start to roll through our toes, our spine and our shoulders into a plank position.  We take a couple of breaths there, gently rolling our shoulders.  And then repeat!

We often find stiffness in the first repetition, but it soon starts to ease and after a few repetitions, we’re ready to flow through the class.

It’s also a go-to cool down movement at the end of a class – again, just easing out muscles that have worked hard during the session.  As a relaxing movement, it’s nice to think about our bodies being gently carried along like waves rolling in and out from the shore.

It’s a great exercise to do when we’re feeling tense, if we’ve been sitting for a while,  after walking, or any other form of exercise, or frankly, at any time.  We love doing it against the kitchen counter, while waiting for the kettle to boil – it’s great for easing early morning stiffness and really helps us roll out the tensions of the day!

We’d love to know where you practise your wave to plank rolls!

If you’d like to experience the Wave to Plank movement, book your place in any of our Reformer or Mat classes below – we’d love to share it with you.
