Happy New Year – Gov guidelines, how to join Pilates Classes online
How are you? Things have got a little tough again lately, and many people are struggling in so many ways. It’s cold, we’re post-Christmas and… we’re locked down again. Agh!!
Following our survey (many thanks to those of you who took part) we have listened to you, and are pleased to introduce a new, simpler suite of membership options. We all want to do our best to feel fit and motivate, even if we can only do it at home at the moment. Read on to learn what is included with each level. I’ve also shared a delicious, healthy and quick recipe to warm you this January.
DID YOU KNOW….
Some things you may not know about Pilates Community, that We launched the Pilates Community website over a year ago! This means that we are used to providing access to classes remotely, and offering other benefits as well. Our teachers have many years’ experience, and I myself have been qualified as a Pilates instructor for over 16 years – some of my clients have been with me since the start, and continue to enjoy the benefits of learning Pilates with me. So you can rest assured that the quality of our classes is second to none, and we are used to providing expert instruction both in person 1:1, in a group format and via Zoom and Facebook.
Membership of Pilates Community starts at just £9.99 per month. That’s equivalent to less than £2.50 per week!!
We offer 3 levels of Pilates online class membership. We’ve recently had a little rethink about how we present our different packages. To simplify things, we now offer the following distinct levels of membership:
ALL levels of membership have access to our website portal. With access to thousands of videos online, 2-15 minutes long, covering covering exercises, problem areas and stretches.
YOU can choose the right class for you – class length, level and focus.
Silver level membership of Pilates Community brings you 5 live classes per week. Silver level and you can add small Zoom classes. Diamond levels and you can add 1:1 classes.
If you choose to stay in your PJs, no problem! You can access the classes whenever you like, as they are recorded as well as live-streamed. So watch them at your leisure and in place of your choosing!
All levels of membership will make you feel part of a community, that you can participate in as much or as little as you like. Live classes, a private Facebook page and a WhatsApp group – companionship and support which is much needed for many at this strange time. Membership of Pilates Community is not just about Pilates. We offer a community element, discuss wellbeing and positivity, and advice on mindfulness.
Let us help you stay motivated and healthy.

- 1-2 tsp Thai red curry paste (we used Sharwood’s)
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 50g sachet coconut cream
- 400g raw frozen prawns
- coriander, chopped, to serve (optional)
- STEP 1 Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Tip in the onion and ginger, then cook for a few mins until softened. Stir in the curry paste, then cook for 1 min more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and coconut cream. Bring to the boil, then leave to simmer for 5 mins, adding a little boiling water if the mixture gets too thick.
- STEP 2 Tip in the prawns, then cook for 5-10 mins more, depending on how large they are. Serve alongside some plain rice and sprinkle with a little chopped coriander, if you like.
