Pilates class update!
We are so excited that we're now able to offer Pilates classes back in our beautiful movement studio!
We know that some of you have enjoyed having the option of being able to do classes from the comfort of your own home, so for those classes now running at the clinic, we will still be offering the option of attending via Zoom. Your instructor will be beaming live from the studio to your lounge!(or garden if the weather is nice!).
Covid has seen so many changes for so many of us. We wish to follow and adhere to guidelines for the safety, health and wellbeing of us all.With this in mind, here are the key points we need you be aware of at the moment:
Booking your class - As you can see on the above image, the same class time is listed twice (this example is Gordon's Monday 6.45pm class) and there are 2 options - the top one to attend in clinic and the bottom to attend via Zoom. It is incredibly important that you book the correct option as unfortunately, we can't accept drop ins to the clinic due to our new procedures. If the 'in clinic' class option is full, you can always waitlist for this, or alternatively, if you're able to, please book onto the Zoom class as you'll be guaranteed a place.
What to expect when you come to class - Here's a short video explaining the procedures when you attend a class at the clinic.
Non ‘Zoomers’ - Please be patient with us as we work through introducing a priority booking system for those of you who don’t Zoom to help you to be able to return to class.
Class Passes - For those of you that haven’t been able to Zoom during lockdown and still have classes left on your passes, please be assured we will be extending the validity dates in order for you to use them.Alternatively, we can always credit the remaining classes back to your account if you wanted to book a 1:1 in the machine studio with Gordon or Shireen.
Jo’s Classes & Moving Forward – We will be updating everyone over the coming weeks regarding classes with Jo when she returns in September. We also plan to inform you on class schedules and processes for Sept to Dec and with your help, we can then review and update with the latest recommendations into 2021!
For full details of how classes at the clinic are running,please read our Policy & Procedures here, or give our amazing admin angels a call on 01293 542245 who will be happy to talk you through booking options.
Thank you for your continued support my crikey, we really appreciate it!
Are you looking to set weight loss goals?
There has been lots of discussion in the media recently about the importance of maintaining a healthy weight to lower the risks associated with the Coronavirus.
"Dr Jenny Harris (Chief Medical Officer) warned obesity, proven to increase the risk of coronavirus-infected patients dying,was a risk the UK could 'do something about"
We are well aware that the current pandemic has made many people assess their diets and nutrition in a way they never have done before which is absolutely fantastic, but this article highlights all the reasons that diets don't work and why the Government's obesity strategy is ignoring the science.
If you'd like more to take a more holistic approach to your weight loss goals, we're here to help!

6-week Pilates Introduction courses with Lois
After the huge success of these courses earlier in the year, Lois is excited to be bringing them back from September!
“I wanted to try Pilates & it was recommended to me many times and I just didn’t get round to sorting out a class. When I saw Bridgeham did an intro to Pilates course for four weeks I jumped at the chance. It’s been brilliant and I’ve loved every lesson. The biggest plus for me was it was a very small class. I’m not a fan of big classes as I just got lost in them. I’ve finished the intro classes now but have signed up again to continue on with the beginner's course. The lovely Lois has been amazing!”
Course 1 will run 1.00pm-1.45pm:
Monday 14th, 21st, 28th September
5th, 12th, 19th October
Course 2 will run 1.00pm-1.45pm:
Monday 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th November
Each 6-week course costs £50 or class passes can also be used.
To book your golf assessment package or Pilates introduction course please call our amazing admin angels on 01293 542245.

Testimonial Prize Draw Winner!
Here is what Ms. S said about her Bridgeham Pilates experience:
"I have been doing Pilates at Bridgeham for 4 years and the difference it has made to my body with regards to strength and movement has been incredible.
I started classes to improve a chronic low back problem andit hasn't just improved it, Pilates has fixed it! What Jo does through her classes helps you understand how your body works.
This in turn helps you stay fit and healthy and improves your flexibility and strength. Jo has an incredible understanding of the body and personalises exercises within the class to help specific problem areas. Iwork as a GP and cannot recommend Bridgeham clinic highly enough.
I believe Pilates is the answer to a whole host of musculoskeletal problems as well as improving your strength, flexibility and wellbeing. If you are thinking of starting Pilates classes, look no further!"
