Week beginning 19 July

Hello,
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather. Tomorrow Monday 19 July will be lifting of Covid restrictions in England. How will that impact on our classes? I don’t intend to change anything to be honest. We will still be ventilating the buildings, still have a booking system and QR codes so we can limit numbers and track and trace and I am still going to wait before I start Circuits classes where equipment is shared just to be on the safe side. 

August – reduced timetable and holidays
I have decided to take the second part of August off work while we go on a family holiday to Wales and I complete some training. I will remind you about holiday dates over the next few weeks.

No Saturday morning Pilates in August
No Tuesday afternoon Hollinshead Street in August
All  classes will stop after evening classes Thursday 12 August until start again Wednesday 1 September


Nordic Walking and Friday 23 July 6.30pm White Coppice Adventure Walk
We have absolutely gorgeous weather the last couple of days and it has been a joy to be out and about with my Nordic Walking groups and new trainees.
We had a beautiful Nordic Walk on Friday evening in Brinscall walking the Whithnell Nature Reserve. The route is a former railway line that takes you to Abbey Village. We will have another Friday night Adventure Walk in White Coppice on 23 July- starting at the cricket ground.


No Tuesday 20 July 10am Nordic Walk

Week beginning 12 July

Hello,
I have to mention football today as England is through to the Euros tonight versus Italy. Whether you follow football or not it has been some positive news during these times. And the England team do Pilates! As we are starting to get back to face to face classes people have commented how much they have missed their Pilates sessions. Regular Pilates improves posture, muscle strength, balance, flexibility as well as relieving stress and tension. I have tried to provide classes for everyone so if going on the floor is not suitable we have Standing or Barre Pilates or if a standing class is not suitable we have Seated Pilates.

Good luck England tonight in the Euros!

New Saturday morning Pilates 9am 
We have started our Saturday morning Pilates again. We are back at the Orthodox Church of Holy Apostles 403 Leyland Lane.


Seated Pilates is back on Mondays
We have started Seated Pilates again at 12.30pm on Mondays at Leyland Methodist Church Hall. It was lovely to see everyone last week!

Friday 16 July evening Nordic Walking Adventure starting at Brinscall Baths 6.30pm
We are going to explore the route towards Abbey Village via the disused railway line and the nature reserve. Meet outside Brinscall Baths at 6.30pm.

Next Nordic Walking Technique course 17 July 1pm
We will meet on Worden Park  at 1pm. I will provide the poles. To book go to www.dofitness.org. Any questions please phone me on 07818444841. Regular Nordic Walking does wonders for your physical and mental health and can be enjoyed by different levels of fitness as we have a Wellbeing Group too which is a shorter distance at a slower pace.

Advance notice no Tuesday 27 July afternoon classes at Chorley United Reformed Church
Due to a long standing summer school booking the hall is not available on 27 July.

Some of our Thursday night Nordic Walking group

Week beginning 5 July- Seated Pilates starting and Nordic Walking Technique course

Hello,
I had a lovely day last Monday with my son for his teacher training graduation. It was something really positive to enjoy after the past months where everything has been gloomy.
Zumba and Zumba Gold are really lifting my spirits too- so good for cardiovascular fitness, strength, co-ordination and balance and such good fun and sociable to boot! We now have 6 classes a week for you to chose from.

A wild rose bush full of bees with a beautiful scent. Saturday morning Nordic Walk.

Week beginning 14 June, Chairfit and Standing/ Barre Pilates starting.

Hello,

Gosh it is weekend again! The weeks are flying by. My daughter Eleni had her 15th birthday last week. My little girl is growing up! It was lovely to have a family get together (outdoors) to celebrate Eleni’s birthday. It felt almost normal.
I am trying to get as many classes back as people are asking for. This coming week we will start Chairfit on Wednesdays at 11.30am and Standing/Barre Pilates Fridays at 12.30pm both at Prospect House Sandy Lane. (Seated Pilates and Saturday morning Pilates will start in July.)

Last week we started back at Leyland Methodist Church Hall on Monday mornings with
9.30am Move It Mondays,10.30am Pilates and 11.30am Zumba Gold.
Monday evenings started again with Nordic Walking Buckshaw at 6.30pm
and we started Tuesday afternoons in Chorley with
1.30pm Zumba Gold and  2.30pm Stretch, Tone and Relax (STaR) and 3.30pm Chairfit at Chorley United Reformed Church Hall on Hollinshead Street. 
Thursday evening 7.30pm Pilates was back too at Prospect House.
It was lovely to see people again!
