Amid the developing Coronavirus situation I wanted to reassure my clients on a number of points in relation to the Pilates classes I teach at The Wellbeing Studio.
First of all, I made the decision not to travel to Spain on holiday last week and remained in Clevedon so please be assured that I am ready and able to resume the normal timetable of Pilates classes from tomorrow.
However, I am of course closely monitoring the advice of Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. I plan to continue to offer Pilates classes only for as long as doing so is safe and supportive of my primary objective, which is to help improve my clients’ health and wellbeing.
You will have seen the signs at The Wellbeing Studio explaining the extra cleaning measures in place to protect our clients and the teachers and therapists who work there. If you could clean your hands with the alcohol-based hand gel in the waiting room when you arrive and use the soap, hot water and paper towels in the toilets, that would be much appreciated. We will continue to wipe clean the mats, blocks, balls and rollers after each class as we have always done. If you would prefer to use your own mats etc, or would like to bring along a towel to put over the equipment, or would like to clean your mat etc yourself at the beginning of the class, you are more than welcome to do that.
If you feel at all unwell please could I ask you not to attend class, even if that means cancelling at the last minute. Similarly, please be assured that if I am in any way unwell, I too will cancel the class. In this instance I will either text or email you to let you know. If you have recently returned from travel overseas, please ensure you have complied with Government advice on self-isolation before coming to class.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
This is a challenging time for everyone so let’s try and support each other as much as possible and stay positive…over to you, Eric and Ernie…
