Covid-19 Class Procedures

We’re so happy to welcome you back to class!

We're delighted, we can finally resume Face2face Pilates classes, albeit on a smaller scale and in a slightly different way.

It's been a long time, but we're finally resuming some classes. We've carried out a full COVID-19 risk assessment and will be putting the procedures below in place to make sure your classes are safe and we keep you all healthy.

Following a careful review of all the official guidance and advice, we've put in place some key changes to ensure you can safely return to class. Below is a bit more information about the new class procedure.

Launching Class Timetable:

In order to comply with the latest guidance, we have to allow extra time between classes, for cleaning, ventilation and to manage the flow of people. We've launched a new Face2face & Online Live class timetable. The timetable will be revised regularly, new classes will added as soon as we reach capacity and as soon as all venues become available for use again. We reserve the right to review the timings and change the timetable based on demand.

Check Yourself Out:

We’re asking all clients to self monitor for symptoms. If you’re not feeling well, please let us know right away and please do not attend if you’re in doubt. In the event anyone falls ill at any time, please inform us so that we can make everyone aware and take part in track and trace.

Class Timings:

All classes will now last 45 minutes to give us time to clean and sanitise between. Classes will start and finish on time and we ask that you don’t hang around after the class or before each class. (sorry, we know you enjoy this, but we must limit numbers in the room at any one time)

Class Size:

All classes must adher to 1m social distancing between the mats, expect less attendees per class. Class numbers will vary for each venue.

Class Bubbles:

For now, we're unable to offer ‘make up’ classes if you can’t attend your regular class. We need to help limit contact between individuals, so you'll need to sign up to a regular, weekly class and won’t be able to swap classes.

What to bring to the class?

We ask you to bring as little as possible to class, please leave your personal effects in the car where possible. You’ll need a face covering to arrive, a mat, a band if you have one, a water bottle and you must wear socks. (Masks will be removed during the class)

During the Classes:

We're unable to offer hands on teaching for now, however you’ll still receive lot’s of support and guidance verbally!

If the weather (and noise) permits, we'll be keeping the windows and doors open during the classes. So, depending on the weather, you may need to add (or remove) a layer of clothing. Please bring an extra layer just in case!

We ask that you place your mat on a cross on the floor and you stay on it during the class, please don’t move around the room. Please take off your shoes and leave them by your mat 

Coronavirus Screening:

When you arrive at class, we'll take your temperature with a distanced forehead thermometer. Anyone with a high temperature will not be able to join the class.

We ask that if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of Coronavirus, that you follow the latest isolation guidance and don't attend class.

Check yourself out:

We’re asking all clients to self monitor for symptoms.  If you’re not feeling well, please let us know right away and please do not attend if you’re in doubt. In the event anyone falls ill at any time, please inform us so that we can make everyone aware and take part in track and trace.

Enhanced Cleaning:

At the end of every class, we ask you to wipe down your own area / mat with the products supplied. The rooms will be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis and throughout the day we'll be sanitising high touch areas such as light switches, door handles and knobs, rails and more. 

What to expect: Step by Step

  1. Don't arrive any earlier than 10 minutes before your class is due to start and please wait outside.
  2. We'll ask you to come in one by one wearing a face covering and using the hand gel by the door ready to have your tempreture checked.
  3. Please make your way to a cross on the floor and layout your mat.
  4. Please ensure you stay on your mat throughout and keep any personal effects within your area.
  5. Masks can be removed during the class.
  6. Please ensure you are wearing socks.
  7. During the class, we'll be able to walk round offering verbal guidance and support. I'm sorry, we won't be able to offer ‘hands on’ support.
  8. At the end of class, we ask that you wipe down your mat and the area around it with the cleaning products supplied.
  9. Use the hand gel on leaving the class.
  10. Make your way out of the class, using the fire exit.

We know how much you all value the ‘social’ aspect of classes, catching up and chatting is part of the experience. However, for now we must strictly limit the number of attendees in class at any one time, so we’d really appreciate your support by leaving classes promptly.

Thank you!

This is just a starting point for us. We very much hope in time we can relax how we operate, expand the timetable and be more flexible by re-introducing make up classes. We hope you can understand we're operating under very stringent guidance which is in the best interest of us all, so any decisions are based on this. We’ve been providing Pilates classes to the local people of Worcestershire since 2009 and we want to ensure this can continue for a long time to come!

We appreciate your compliance with the new ways, your understanding and your continued support.
