Welcome to my first Blog, I hope you will find this monthly newsletter full of interesting Pilates related information and that you will look forward to regular updates on what will be coming next at Acclaim Pilates. I will keep you abreast of the latest training I’ve been on and how this is likely to inform what and how I teach you.

There will be a regular feature 'Client of the Month', this month it’s the intrepid Mary Dodd, click here to read more about how Pilates helped her to walk Mount Machu Pichu! You all work so hard in class and I really enjoy seeing you progressing through the levels of Pilates’ exercises and hearing about the benefits you notice I thought it would be great to share your achievements with a wider audience. Please keep me informed of any exercise you are struggling with or when you have experienced a breakthrough moment let me know what helped that happen. Tell me what equipment you like using in class or which has helped you improve your strength and or mobility most. It seems to me that there has been a significant reduction in neck tension for a number of you following the use of the bands and magic circles in 'The Hundred' which has also helped a few of you find those elusive deep abdominal too… hurrah!!!

Coming soon... a monthly 'spotlight' class (location/day/time TBA). Register your interest by emailing me for Pilates Rhythm & Flow. A choreographed 1 hour of seamless exercises to increase intensity and build stamina. Suitable for clients in intermediate classes and above. £10 in advance, £15 on the day (if spaces are available) - please text 07766 528 216 to check in advance of arrival.

By now you should all have been invited to become a friend of Acclaim Pilates on Facebook if I have your email address, let me know if not, where you can ask me questions, give me feedback on classes and make requests for homework exercises to achieve your personal goals.

I am looking forward to being more in touch with you all between sessions and hope you come to enjoy the benefits of sharing with the other lovely people that make up the Acclaim Pilates community.

All best wishes.
