Week beginning 10 April – reducing sugar intake for your health


I hope you are enjoying the Easter weekend. It has been beautiful weather so far. No classes tomorrow Easter Monday but back to normal Tuesday 11 April.

Sugar and why and how to reduce your intake
Refined sugar has many negative implications for our health. Reducing it can really help prevent Type 2 Diabetes, improve your gut microbiome and there are some more benefits you might be surprised by:

Pilates on Zoom starts Tuesdays 7pm 11 April 
Trying to fit exercise into our day can be challenging especially if you are working full time. I know for some people a Zoom Pilates class might be a lot more convenient. Every Tuesday except first Tuesday of the Month. Classes can be booked on Gymcatch. You will need to download the Zoom app see Joining a Zoom Meeting – Bing video

Days off for training in April
No daytime classes from Tuesday 18 April to Friday 21 April (4 days) due to training course. Evening classes on as usual.
