Just to let you know that our last classes before Christmas will be on Monday 19th December 2022, we will then return to classes on Wednesday 4th January 2023
Hello everyone, well, it is time to crack open our Michael Buble Christmas compilation CD as it is nearly December! I know this can be a divider of opinion but surely it has to be better than my Jason Donovan mixtape!!
With regards to Christmas we have two lovely get togethers planned which is especially wonderful after not being able to meet so freely over the last few years.
Our first get together is on Saturday 10th December at 930am. We will be meeting at the Millstone café at Barnack which can be found at the back of the Millstone pub. We will be having an hour (ish) walk around Barnack and then come straight back to the café for tea, coffee, cake, whatever takes your fancy! We will just order what we want on the day so there is no prebooking but if you could let me know if you would like to come that would be great, just so that we have an idea of numbers. Everyone is very welcome to come, partners, cousins, uncles and especially dogs! We are just checking to see if dogs are allowed in the cafe but if not there is a lovely terrace area where they are very welcome. The walk may get a little muddy so please wear appropriate footwear and if you would rather just come for the cuppa and not walk that is fine too!
Our second get together is on Monday 19th December at 730pm at the Crown pub at Great Casterton, straight after our Pilates class. After years of this being postponed we are really excited to be meeting up in the pub – again please let me know if you would like to come along, we won’t be pre booking anything, we will just order a drink (hot milk, ahem!) on the night.
I really really hope you can make one of these dates as it would be so nice to catch up, its quite tricky after class as we are normally a little bit tired! Like I said, if you could let me know by Wednesday 7th December that would be fab

Did you see this article a few weeks ago which says that people exercising both aerobically and those using muscle exercises were more likely to live longer than those who did just one or the other, US researchers found.
Using our bands or weights in class or even just using our own body weight can impact on our bodies so positively – the report even found that the results are especially important for women because they seemed to get an even bigger benefit from weight lifting than men in the study.
A common misconception is the fear for some people that strength exercises would make them “too bulky”—a common worry about weight lifting. Using weights or resistance bands are linked with better muscle mass, healthier muscles and stronger bones which is particularly important in women to stave off conditions such as osteoporosis. it’s really important to not just live long, but to live well. So that’s it then, our weights and resistance bands are here to stay!

So just another little change, some of our classes are going to be starting a little bit later as of Wednesday 21st September, this is because Harry will be starting school full time and I will need a bit more time to drop him off at school! It will only be 15 minutes later so I do hope you don’t mind. This is what our new timetable will look like:
930am Pilates at Carlby Village Hall
1100am Pilates at Little Bytham Village Hall
615pm Pilates at Great Casterton Church Hall will be staying at the same time
930am Dancefit at South Luffenham Village Hall
1045am Pilates at South Luffenham Village Hall
930am Dancefit at Empingham Audit Hall – these two classes will be staying at the same time
1045am Pilates at Empingham Audit Hall
Just to reiterate this will only begin on Wednesday 21st September as there will be no classes on the Bank Holiday Monday 19th September. I do hope this works for all of you – just think an extra 15 minutes in bed, woohoo!
Change your Satnav to Great Casterton not the Methodist Hall because as of tomorrow (Monday 12th September) we are back at Great Casterton Church Hall at 615pm, phew it will be nice to be home again! We will be rewarded with lovely warm heating in the winter….cozy!
