A little end of year newsletter from your Pilates Studio…

Sho Sho Sho…. What to say, what to say?!#?

Our world has turned upside down, and it seems like this rollercoaster ride will continue for the foreseeable future.
We must continue to be adaptable, resilient, positive (not Covid positive please) – Perhaps optimistic is a better word here… and to have trust and faith in the ‘powers that be’ that all will come right in the end.

I will keep this short and sweet – (famous last words you sigh…) – But really I will try…

Thank you to all of you amazing clients – without your incredible willingness to try something new – Zooming Classes online – I would have been left jobless as well as studioless in March – and that would have been very sad. Through the early days of our hard lock down, to our gradual ‘reopening’ and relaxing of the rules, and now through this second and even scarier surge of Covid 19 – You guys have continued to support me here at Pilates and Beyond and for that I am truly grateful… Thank you!

Who knows what 2021 will bring – but I know that we will embrace and endure and make the most of whatever comes our way – we are in this together!

When we reopen on January 11th, the Pilates timetable will be the same, and for the next little while, we will continue to Zoom all studio classes, in order to give you the option of staying home or coming to the studio.

I am super excited to introduce some new ‘Zoom Only Classes’! It has been so cool being introduced to Virtual Classes. With Zoom – I have been able to keep in touch with my ‘Swallows’, and to offer classes to friends and clients who have moved away. Please watch this space – and check out on the Pilates and Beyond Facebook page new Zoom classes which will be starting soon – maybe you have friends overseas who would like to try us out??

From February – Pilates and Beyond will be changing its fee structure. There will be a small increase (roughly 6.9%) in the cost of classes – but where I used to charge a fixed amount each month regardless of how many weeks in the month – now each class in the month will be invoiced for. In turn, when there is a public holiday, or the studio closes for the holidays, you will no longer be expected to pay the same monthly fee… This means you will receive an invoice each month which will vary from month to month. I will send an email with all the specifics to you in January.

It feels weird to talk about ‘The Holiday Season’ with all the drama going on… Covid numbers up, beaches closed, overseas trips cancelled, fear of going out… so much uncertainty – but it IS the holiday season – and if ever we needed a break, now is the time! I really hope that you get some rest and relaxation, somehow, somewhere – but if you are really missing your classes, you can check out the link here to a few of my recorded (badly recorded, not edited… so please.. at your own risk!)

Enjoy them!!

If you are stuck for a gift for that someone special – I have beautiful gift vouchers available!! A gift certificate for 1 private Orientation session, valued at R450, or for that someone extra special 😉 – a book of 5 Orientation sessions valued at R1680. Let me know and I can either have one printed out for you – or send you one that you can either print out or send as an attachment. Such a GREAT idea you say?!?


I would love to be all poetic and profound… but man it’s been a tough year!
I will just say thank you, wish you all a happy, safe, restful holiday season – and I look forward to the year ahead with all of you!
