Wendy Maguire Physiotherapy and Pilates News
LATEST NEWS - MONDAY 29 JUNE 2020
Well, as some of you will know, schools "close" tomorrow for the summer holidays so as usual, I am challenging you all to do 3 sets of 3 different exercises at least 3 times a week for the next few weeks!
The Challenge consists of:
- Hundreds Level 3 (3 sets)
- Scissors Level 2 (1 set) then Double Leg Stretch Level 4 (1 set) then Hip Twist Level 3 + opposite arms (1 set)
- 3 sets of any Plank
Remember to try and do all these up to 3 times a week if possible. Also, change the exercises if you prefer of if you get bored :)
Finally, I am hoping to return to "classes" in some type of format at the beginning of September if not before - just waiting to get the green light but will let you all know as soon as I know.
Enjoy and have a good summer!
IMPORTANT REMINDER RE PILATES PRODUCTS
Please note that if you would like to purchase any Pilates products (eg. mats, cushions, spiky balls or any other Pilates equipment or clothing) from the APPI website www.appihealthgroup.com please use this link - https://shop.appihealthgroup.com/?ref=69 which enables me to gain a small percentage of sales generated.
Thank you in anticipation
Please note that as from today, 18/03/2020, we have taken the decision that all classes at the clinic are cancelled in line with official guidelines. Apologies and hope to see you all back at classes soon.
Thank you so much for all your support.
INFORMATION ON COVID-19
I would like to clarify that in line with the current situation with the coronavirus (also known as Covid-19), the health and well-being of all clients remains a top priority. To this end, I want to reassure you all that all mats and equipment are regularly cleaned to maintain the highest standards of good hygiene practice and I will continue to do so. However, if anyone feels they would prefer to bring their own mats and/or cushions or hand towels for use under the head, I am more than happy to accommodate this.
Also, please could I ask that if you are feeling unwell or are generally worried about the current situation, please do not hesitate to let me know and I fully understand if you would prefer to limit attendance to classes at this time.
For those of you still planning to come to classes, we are asking that you wash your hands before the class and/or use the hand sanitiser gels that will be placed around the clinic.
Thank you for your understanding and support at this difficult time.
A reminder about how the classes work:
- for anyone who hasn't attended my classes before and would like to have a go, here are some details regarding the book-a-space (drop-in) classes. For those of you unsure about how this works, I request that you contact me either by text, mobile phone or email to book a place and my phone is available for bookings FROM 8 AM ON MONDAY MORNINGS. These classes are charged at £8 per class. Could I ask that you please ALWAYS put your name at the end of your text messages as I don't keep a record of everybody's individual phone numbers, many thanks.
For anybody thinking about trying Pilates, I'd recommend a one-to-one session first to get an idea of the concept behind Pilates, as well as the Basic Principles which can be quite tricky to master initially. Once you've had some practise, it's all a lot easier!
Please contact me on 07747432418 for any queries.
FEEDBACK FROM A CLIENT:
Personally, it is a minor miracle that I enjoy Pilates very much. Exercise is not my first love but your Pilates has changed me. I very much look forward to the classes and like the way new exercises are introduced. The encouragement from you is really appreciated as well as the care you take that none of us hurt ourselves. Over the weeks I have gained a huge amount of strength and confidence which was sadly lacking before I came to you. My friends have commented on my changing body shape (unsolicited) and more than one person has said “you’re glowing!” Thank you so much! MH
