Covid Information

Pilates Classes

I am eager to get back to face to face classes where possible as soon as restrictions are lifted – I love seeing everyone and really I miss the social interaction.

But of course – things will need to be a little different when it comes to face to face classes compared to pre-Covid.

  • Class numbers will be restricted to allow for the 2m social distancing rule between mats.

  • While you do not need to wear your facemask while exercising, you will need to wear it on arrival, when leaving, and if you need to move around the room at all (to use the facilites etc). 

  • One way systems will be put in place in halls to reduce contact between people arriving and leaving as well as staggered start and finish times.

  • There will be increased cleaning (ha ha! My duties will now include mopping instead of the usual sweeping!) before and between classes.

  • There will be at least 15 mins change over time between classes to reduce cross contact between classes and allow for extra cleaning – this may mean classes start or finish at slightly different times.

  • For now, I won’t be able to manually correct you “hands on”, but I’ll still be there to spot errors and verbally / visually correct. This is still MUCH easier in face to face classes than online. 

  • I won’t have any equipment to loan out – please make sure you have everything you need in your bag.

  • Windows and doors will be open to allow extra ventilation and increase air flow. If you have a tendency to feel the cold, please wear extra layers. 

  • I am currently testing myself twice per week using the rapid lateral flow test to ensure I'm not asymptomatic and I would urge everyone attending classes (anywhere) to do the same. 

  • I have completed and reviewed separate, detailed risk assessments for each venue I teach at - these will be available for you to read if you wish (and if you happen to be really, really bored!) so you can be confident all eventualities have been covered and necessary precautions taken. 

Sports Therapy / Massages

Sports therapy and massages are available - in all cases now, including maintance work. (Not just if you have an acute injury). 

  • I have a separate treatment room at the rear of my house which is accessed via a side gate and separate door.

  • Please knock on the front door, or call the number on the front window and I will come to the gate to let you in. 

  • Please wear your facemask.

  • All surfaces are thoroughly cleaned between patients with fresh towels. 

  • All towels and covers have been washed at 60 degrees.

  • I will be wearing PPE including an apron, mask and gloves. 

  • The treatment room will be aired thoroughly between patients.

  • Please use the hand sanitiser provided.  

  • I am currently testing myself twice per week using the rapid lateral flow test to ensure I'm not asymptomatic. 

  • I have completed and regularly review risk assessments which are available for you to read upon request.
