Week beginning 6 March and how is your balance?


How is your balance? Balance is something we look at in every Do Fitness class as it is so important and can be practised and improved. It is wonderful to get emails from class members like this:
Hi Diane,
Thank you for another enjoyable session today.  Just wanted to tell you that my balance has improved from taking your classes and I can now balance on one leg which I couldn’t do before the classes.  Very conscious that poor balance contributes to falls as we get older and am very keen to avoid falling, having had a fall about 18 months ago. 
Thanks for making the classes challenging and fun.

Pilates on Zoom?
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. Please let me know if you would like a Tuesday evening 7.30pm Zoom Pilates.
