There is a new timetable with a new Monday 10.45 am class on it and some classes have advanced (well done to you!). The new look timetable is on the "Classes" page.
We have new classes because of such high demand and a large waiting list. Most classes are very busy so we would remind you all that we need 24 hours notice of cancellation to allow people on the waiting list into classes.
The new classes mean that both studios are in use on Monday mornings and Wednesday and Thursday evenings and the car park may get very full at these times. Be prepared to park on Hatea Drive or on the side streets close by at these times.
Some years ago, I offered an early morning class at 7.15 am which was eventually cancelled as not enough people were interested. Carla would be prepared to offer this again if there was enough interest. It would need a minimum of eight booked so please let us know if that would be for you. It would be a more intermediate level class.
Carla, Val and I can always offer a personal Pilates session if you want to refine your mat work. However, at the moment, I don’t have any time slots left to offer Pilates apparatus training but can put you down on a waiting list if you want.
We also all have skills other than as Pilates instructors !! I am a physiotherapist (no longer practising) Carla is a very busy dance teacher and Val is a massage therapist and naturopath. Val is offering both these services at Hatea Drive on Monday afternoons and Wednesdays. She has business cards in the studios if you wish to contact her regarding this.
Winsor Pilates is well known world wide for marketing Pilates and offers various Pilates DVDs teaching mat and using various small equipment as well. It is the DVD series that I recommend as closest to the classical Pilates we offer at Northland Pilates.
It’s founder, Mari Winsor has just completed an Australasian tour and I had a fabulous workshop in Auckland with her last weekend. She’s no spring chicken but looks great ( she attributes this to Pilates, take note ! ) She is very down to earth, totally inspiring and very, very funny. We had a great afternoon of mat and apparatus work with her and I have learned lots of new stuff that I will be bringing into your classes and sharing with Val and Carla so they can too. I have posted a group photo of Maree and the twenty five instructors who trained with her that day on the top of this page. You can also see this latest newsletter there.
All classes have been working with balls over the last three weeks and we can get the green balls for $20 each if you enjoy them and can see yourself working with them at home. Just let us know and I will place an order.
Easter is just three weeks away and the studio will be shut for the long weekend after classes on Thursday March 28th and reopening for business as usual on Tuesday April 2nd. I will remind you nearer the date.
