Pilates on Zoom Tuesdays 7pm (apart from first Tuesday of the month)
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.
