We will be closed from Friday 20 March for ONE WEEK, as part of our scheduled course break. Unless specifically advised otherwise by the government, we hope to be open again for classes and therapies from Monday 31 March.
We take our role in the community very seriously and believe we have a responsibility toward each of our clients and their families to keep them safe. Therefore, in light of the advice given by the government this afternoon, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to close, as scheduled for one week only, with the intention of resuming, as near a normal service as possible, from Monday 31 March, providing it is deemed safe to do by the government.
“It is our intention to spend the next week working on launching online live streaming pilates classes or a selection of pre-recorded classes for you to view at your convenience. Please watch this space for updates “
We appreciate many of our clients will make the decision to self isolate, and look forward to welcoming them back, once the danger of infection has passed. However, for those who regard their weekly Pilates sessions or massage treatments as medicine, we want to do our very best to continue to provide those remedies in a safe environment for as long as we can.
We will host no more than 6 in a class, which will allow maximum exclusion area between mats, and, as has become the norm in the current climate, all equipment will be sanitised with antibacterial solution after each class.
To help us keep our little sanctuary safe, we ask clients to arrive and leave promptly where possible, to avoid too many people congregating in our small reception area. Also we request you take care to wash your hands thoroughly before and after class.
Our client’s wellbeing is also of utmost importance to us, especially at times like these. If you are unable to attend classes, but would like to hear a friendly voice or chat through your worries, please call us, as our staff will be here most days and we will do anything we can to help you.
The best thing we can advise you to do now, is to stay home, avoid crowded places and wash hands regularly. Avoid touching your face and sanitising regularly touched points such as light switches, remote controls, doorbells, handles etc.
Be safe and stay positive friends we will get through this.
