Pilates Classes Starting in September 2020

The long awaited Pilates Update – Saltash Physio Commence classes at Ashtorre Rock

We are glad to let you know that we will return to teaching small groups of Pilates on 7th September 2020 at the Ashtorre Rock.

I know it has been a longtime coming but we need to ensure that we can maintain the required guidelines set by the government and our professional body. There will be a few noticeable changes:

Each person will have a designated area for exercise to ensure we maintain social distancing
There will be a maximum of 7 people per class
You will need to bring your own mat and cushion/towel
Please only bring essential items to the class – no excess bags etc
Hand sanitiser will be available
You will be required to wear a mask up until the class starts and then again once we have finished.
Windows will be left open so a jumper/cardigan may be required!
The room will be cleaned and ventilated between each class
There will be a 15 min gap between classes to allow one group to leave before the others arrive
No waiting in the building. Please wait outside/in your car until your class time (Or max 5 mins before) –please leave promptly after the class to minimise chance of meeting the next group. Please maintain the 2m social distancing outside of the Pilates studio.

Due to the financial implications of reduced class sizes we unfortunately need to increase the cost of the classes by 50p. This will obviously not cover the reduction in income but does make the classes economically viable for us to continue. I hope this is not seen as unreasonable. A 10 week term is now £80.

We will start by teaching the following 8 classes:

Monday    9:15am and 10:30am
Monday    6:00pm and 7:15pm
Tuesday   9:15am and 10:30am
Thursday  9:15am and 10:30am

We are also running remote Pilates session on a Wednesday at 12:00 via Zoom for those that can’t make any of the class times or who do not want to attend groups. 1 hour class in the comfort of your own home.

10 week course (10 classes) £30. Recordings of the class will also be available if you

Contact us if you have any questions about these classes or our COVID protocols

Please contact the clinic on 01752 202202 or email to let us know what class times you would like to join. If we have the capacity we will put more classes on.

Unfortunately due to the size of the room at Saltash Physio Clinic we can not resume the classes there at present.

Kind regards,
