Team Bridgeham Update
We're excited to announce that Carol Boughton has re-joined the Bridgeham team to offer a new Pilates class! Here's a little about her background:
"I have worked and played in the fitness and education industry for most of my life and have gained coaching qualifications in the gym, rowing, swimming and Pilates as well as working as a trainer/assessor.
I am passionate about Pilates and the benefits from both a health and well-being perspective. I pride myself on being able to help and support my clients reach their potential within my Pilates classes. I achieve this by ensuring I deliver safe and enjoyable classes where everyone has the opportunity to achieve, whatever their age and ability.
I look forward to welcoming you to my classes and helping you to learn to also love Pilates and its benefits."
We are very sorry to announce Sue Mills our Pranic Healing Therapist has now left the Bridgeham team.
We're sure you'll join us in thanking Sue for her commitment, support,hard work and dedication during her time with us, and we wish her all the very best as she continues in her private practice along with all her charity work for MCKS Charitable Foundation UK.
