November 2013

So, the leaves are falling, it’s getting a bit nippier and it’ll soon be Halloween. November Newsletter CoverA new month is on the way too, so what better time for us to launch our brand new website and our new online booking system? These improvements will allow our existing clients to find the info they want about classes, courses and timetables easily, and then to book the times they want in advance online. And to keep our policy of quality, we are introducing Foundation Courses for those who are new to Pilates.

For our existing clients you can create an account from our website here, update your profile and payment details and book all of the courses, appointments and classes that you want online. We are offering 10 packs on both Mat and Reformer and One to Ones for the same rates as previously and you can use them on the dates that suit you as opposed to having to sign up for a fixed course. You can still book the same time each week though too. So the same great classes, a better booking experience, the same price, and you’re in total control. What’s not to like? Remember this is a new system so it will take us all a wee while to get used to it, so please bear with us!

Whats a Foundation Course?

If you have never done Pilates before and would like to start, we’re now offering 2 week Foundation Courses which give you 2 Mat Classes and 2 Reformer Classes and a 45 Minute One to One session over a 2 week period. These brand new Courses will teach you the basics of the Pilates Method and allow you to try out both of our signature Group Classes. Your One to One session will enable us to assess your posture and tailor the exercises for your body. Our first lunchtime Foundation Course starts on Monday 4th of November at 13:00 – 13:45 and continues on Wednesday 6th of November at 13:00 over the 2 weeks. Our first evening Foundation Course starts Tuesday 4th of November at 19:30 and continues on Thursdays at 18:00 over the 2 weeks. Your One to One can booked within this two week period, or beforehand if you like. There are a maximum of 7 people in your Group, so you get individual tuition and the best out of your time in the studio. Book now to make sure of your place.

Brand New Website

Not only have we been busy sorting out a booking system for you, but we’ve also gone and updated our website too. We think it’s pretty slick but don’t just take our word for it, have a look around and see whats new. Many thanks to Claire in Fierce Clever for all the hard work and creativity on the design.
