What To Wear
Please wear unrestricted clothing such as work out pants, leggings, tee shirts etc. Layers of clothes in the winter. I prefer that you work in socks , you work in bare feet at your own risk and please bring socks with you just in case we use equipment.
What To Bring
Mats are provided at Lakelands but you may prefer to bring your own.
Small cushion to support your head, if needed, and a hand towel that you can roll up into a pad to help with certain exercises and use to help with stretches.
Water to drink.
It is OK to think “Oooh I can feel that ” BUT not OK to think “Ow! ” Stop if you feel any pain or discomfort and speak to me either during or after the class.
There is a lot to learn in Pilates so don’t get impatient with yourself – it takes time and practice to get the core engaged, the breathing pattern and the exercises/stretches together.
Please feel free to ask any questions either during or after the class.
It is OK to have a light snack up until an hour before your class. Do not smoke an hour before and an hour after your class. Better still do not smoke!
Please arrive 10 minutes early for your classes. There is no reception at Lakelands and you need to be buzzed into the building either by myself or a class member. If you are going to be later than that please text me, otherwise you won’t get into the building.
Enjoy Pilates – it is magic!
