A quick heads-up on some upcoming changes at Embody Pilates. We’re adding four new sessions to the existing timetable of Pilates classes running at The Wellbeing Studio in Clevedon. So, from MONDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER the weekly schedule of classes will look like this…
- Mondays: 12.30-13.30 and 19.00-20.00
- Tuesdays: 18.15-19.15 and 19.15-20.15
- Wednesdays: 11.15-12.15
- Thursdays: 12.30-13.30, 18.00-19.00 and 19.00-20.00
- Fridays: 09.30-10.30
- Saturdays: 10.00-11.00
With a wider selection of morning, lunchtime, evening and weekend sessions to choose from, it will be even easier to find a Pilates class to suit a busy lifestyle.
Every class is suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. For those wanting to explore the repertoire of Pilates exercises more fully, we’ve purchased some foam rollers and Therabands. Similar to the small balls we already use, the rollers and bands allow us to challenge our stability as we perform an exercise, and help us to isolate or engage targeted muscles more effectively. We’ll start to use the rollers and bands in class from Monday 5th September.
Regular visitors to the EP website will remember this post from January with details of a retreat I’m going to be teaching at on the Greek island of Skyros. The time for this is fast approaching; I can’t believe how quickly it’s come around!
I’ll be working abroad from Saturday 10th to Monday 26th September inclusive. Obviously I won’t be able to teach my usual timetable of classes in Clevedon and Bristol during this period. Apologies for any inconvenience. It’s a great opportunity though for me to learn and grow as a teacher and bring back to class lots of new ideas, skills and experiences.
I hope you will return to class after this short interlude. Just so we’re clear, the last class before I head to Greece will be on Friday 9th September at 09.30 and the first class back after my time abroad is Tuesday 27th September at 18.15.
Finally, look out for Embody Pilates in the local press in late September/early October. We’ve managed to secure editorial space in three free monthly glossies – the Clevedon and Tickenham Green Paper, Clevedon Living and the Clevedon and Portishead Resident – to promote the new class timetable and to spread the word about the huge benefits that regular Pilates can bring.
To close, here’s an apt song about the perils of being a white-skinned northerner heading abroad to sunnier climes. It’s also a favourite tune from my summer playlist and arguably has one of the best intros and guitar riffs of all time…
