Raring to go and what’s on in January

It is fantastic to be back and seeing everyone raring to go. A break from classes is really useful because it reminds us what we feel like if we don’t exercise. Humans are designed to move and be active!

New Pilates class- Monday afternoons.
A new Pilates class is starting on Monday 16th January at 2pm at Prospect House, 45 Sandy Lane, Leyland PR25 2EE. I have had a few requests for this Monday afternoon class. And if anyone can’t come on Monday morning there is now an afternoon option.

Normal timetable except for Friday afternoon Friday 13th January.
There are no Friday afternoon classes on Friday 13th January. Morning classes in Euxton are on as normal. Friday afternoon back to normal next week.

Living with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
To get the diagnosis of MS is very frightening but also a relief because usually you have known for sometime that something is wrong. Symptoms vary from person to person.  My last relapse gave me left sided weakness. I have recovered 90% strength and coordination. I have to be very careful on stairs as I easily fall through balance issues and foot drop where I catch my left heel. Typing is getting better as I am regaining more coordination in my left hand. I will take a walking stick if I am walking a distance or on uneven ground. Extreme fatigue and brain fog are my other  symptoms. This is soul destroying if you are used to being active and using your mind.
Pilates is extremely good for my condition for balance and core strength. All classes are brilliant because of you the wonderful class members who make me feel so much better with your humour, chats and encouragement. Thank you.

No Pilates Thursday 20th October

So sorry about the short notice but there is no Pilates Thursday 20th October. I am going to the Academy@ Worden to present the Yianni Hadjigeorgiou Outstanding Student Award which the school has introduced in Yianni’s memory. I am afraid I couldn’t get a cover teacher and I didn’t want to  miss being there. Back to normal next week.

Christmas lunch and timetable changes

Christmas Lunch Last year we all really enjoyed our Christmas lunch at Wellington Park in Leyland. I have booked it again for Monday 12 December at 12 noon. It is £15 per person. I will start collecting when I see you in class. We will also have an evening Christmas drink for people who are not free during the day. Get your Christmas jumpers ready.
Thursday night Zumba has finished for now I am so sad to finish the Thursday night Zumba for the time being. Thank you so much for the dedicated people who were coming and to the amazing Ann Smith  for teaching it since MS has zapped me.  If you would like to continue going to a class with Ann she runs Zumba on Tuesdays 6pm to 7pm at St James’s Parish Hall Avondale Drive Lostock Hall PR55BQ.
No 50+ Circuits on Monday 24th October There will be no class that day. All other classes running as normal that day. Back to normal the following week.
