Feeling hot hot hot?! Me too. With unprecedented (we’ve used that word a lot in recent years, haven’t we) red and amber weather warnings in place for the UK this Monday and Tuesday, I’ve decided it would be irresponsible of me to offer my usual Pilates classes on those days.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has issued its highest level four heat alert to health and care bodies warning illness and death could occur “among the fit and healthy”. The body has to work hard to keep the core temperature stable in extreme heat. Exercising in high temperatures is therefore not a good idea. There is also the chance that broadband and mobile phone networks may be affected by the hot weather. Unstable connections are not great when you’re doing a live online class.
This all means there will be no online Pilates X Melissa classes on Monday 18 July or Tuesday 19 July this week. Maybe try some paddling Poolates instead…see what I did there.
All change for the weather from Wednesday with much cooler temperatures on the way so you still have an evening and a morning class available this week if you’d like to join me on Wednesday 20 July at 1900 and Friday 22 July at 0930. The Friday class for this week only is available to those with osteoporosis and osteopenia. I’d like you to still have the opportunity to practise Pilates this week despite there being no Tuesday session.
Sorry about the cancellations but I think it’s for the best. Thank you for your understanding.
Keep cool, drink plenty of water, rest and look out for each other.
To close, Tim Buckley telling it like it is…
