Dru Yoga class

The next Dru Yoga class will be on Wednesday 5 June 6-7.30pm at Whippingham Community Centre.

Dru Yoga is a lovely slow and flowing yoga which will help you relax, unwind and stretch out your body, as well as helping you find a sense of stillness in the busyness of life.

We are lucky to be using the community centre at Whippingham which has beautiful views over the Island.

I was introduced to Dru Yoga several years ago, and decided to train to teach, really for my own benefit as I loved it so much. Pilates is my main “thing” and I am lucky enough to be very busy with pilates in my studio at Lake, but I also wanted to teach Dru. So this is why I only teach a monthly class which makes it more special.

If you would like to come along, please contact me to book your space as I limit numbers in class. Price for the class is £10.

Pilates sessions now available on Monday evenings

The studio is now open for shared sessions on Mondays 4.30 – 7pm. Sessions by appointment only. These are one hour sessions consisting of matwork and use of the reformer and/or stability chair. Exercises are tailored to suit each individual. Remember you don’t have to find someone to share with! Just book a time, you may be sharing with one or two others, or you may be lucky enough (it depends which way you look at it) to have a session on your own! *

*If you have no previous pilates experience you will need 1:1 sessions to start your pilates journey.

WEAR A HAT TO YOUR PILATES CLASS

On Friday 1st March the Earl Mountbatten Hospice are having a wear a hat for the day event to raise funds. So I am inviting all my clients having matclasses or studio sessions during this week to wear a hat to class and during the class (if you can keep it on!). Donations of £2 to take part. I will bring the official hospice collection box to each pilates session, so even if you don’t “do” hats your donation will be very welcome. Thank you to this morning’s class for being such good sports. We were wearing a wide range of hats from woolly bobble hats to fascinators!

BODY CONTROL PILATES DEVELOPMENT WEEKEND

The Pilates Method is always developing and changing and this weekend is where us teachers get to catch up with the latest and learn lots!

A lecture given by Madeline Black (USA) about the latest science on pain, how the brain perceives and processes it, was really interesting and food for thought.

I so enjoyed a class on side flexion given by Anula Maiberg (New York).  What happens when the matwork goes sideways?! Watch out classes this week!
