Firstly, massive thanks to everyone who has kindly supported me over the last couple of weeks. Thank you for all your kind messages, cards and flowers. I have been inundated with so many good wishes and really appreciate you taking the time to offer your comforting words to me,
My mum was an incredible lady, so spirited and the most selfless lady I have ever know. She lived an amazing life and loved her family so much. I consider myself blessed to have had her as a mum. As well as my dad, she supported me completely when I lost my darling Clive and was so proud when I I opened my studio. Her funeral is this Tuesday and I know she would now be telling me to get back to my classes and my loyal supporting clients. So I will be back this Friday 29th April.
I would like to say a huge thanks to Ange, Vourn and Harri for covering those extra classes Without these professional instructors, who have managed to fit my classes in as well as running their own classes, my studio would have been closed and that was the last thing I wanted to do.
I appreciate there were five classes that I had to cancel, but hope you understand

I did say I would update you on classes for the next week.
Again, I must thank everyone who has taken the time to send me a personal message, email,or card or flowers. I have been inundated with support and cannot thank you enough as they have been very comforting to me and my family.
I know life goes on and my mum would be telling me now to put on my red lipstick, smile, laugh and deliver a fun effective class – but at this moment in time, I cannot Her funeral is not until Tuesday 26th April and I feel I cannot teach until she has been laid to rest. My priority has to be my dad who is just broken and I need time to grieve myself I hope you understand and appreciate you still want your classes, so I have asked Ange, Vourn and Harri to cover. Please do support them as it will keep the classes well attended

Hi Hope you have had a lovely summer and are feeling refreshed and relaxedAnge, Em and I enjoyed our breaks and I was pleased to be able to offer virtually a full timetable over the summer period. I know clients appreciated the continuation of classes. But apologies for the few that were cancelled . Many thanks to Em who looked after the studio as well as covering for both mine and Anges classes.You will notice the studio had been decorated over the bank holiday. I have put a buffer against the wall where the weights and steps are stacked. Can I kindly ask you to ensure that the equipment does not touch the wall – many thanks.Thank you for your patience as the woodwork is still to be finished and the studio still does smell of fresh paint.There are a few changes to the classes as follows:Step – at present there is only the one step class at 6pm 0n a Monday However I will see how September is and if I feel the class is too busy, I will put on another one on at 5.15pm. So watch this space.
Tuesday blissful stretch 10.20am – with the demand for more pilates, I have decided to make this class pilates and stretch. – so very similar to what we have been doing in class,but a mixture of pilates and stretch. There will still be relaxation at the end
