Pilates for Orthopaedic Conditions

This week has brought some exciting news, not only am I now a qualified level 3 pilates instructor, but I have been told that I have passed my Pilates for Orthopaedic Conditions course!

This means I can help more people become active again, stay active, and take GP referrals.

I have been trained in many different issues, including:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis
  • Specific Back Pain – Trapped Nerve, Sciatica, Slipped Disc
  • Non-Specific Back Pain – Caused by general living, posture etc
  • Shoulder issues – Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff Impingement
  • Knee and Hip Replacements
  • Knee Injuries

The list goes on! This doesn’t mean I can diagnose you, but when you are ready to exercise I can work with what your Physio and GP have advised you to do, and get you back to working order.

Pilates is great for keeping you healthy by working at a low impact level to gain core strength, mobility and natural flexibility in your body.

If you suffer from an achey back, but there is no underlining issue you can come to a class. Also if you are Hypermobile but not had any issues with it, you can also come to a class. If you have any other conditions listed above you would need to have seen a medical professional first. I can then help you either privately or in a small group class.

Please always let me know if you have an existing condition prior to joining any class.

Andover Carnival 2014

You have have seen that Purity Studio had an Aerial Hoop set up at The Andover Carnival 2014. It was a long day, as we were there from 8.30am until about 8pm, introducing many men, woman and children to the circus art of Aerial Hoop, also known as Lyra.

So many had never heard of it, or seen it, but I was amazed to see so many give it a go. We had a total of 12 adults and 20 children try it. The youngest children were 6, and the oldest was a 79 year old man! I hope I can still use an Aerial Hoop when I am his age!

The sun was shining all day long, making the Andover Carnival very popular.

More people now know there is a new dedicated dance and fitness studio in Andover, running pole dancing, aerial hoop, pole fitness, Personal Training and INSANITY classes right on their door step. Small classes, so there is plenty of instructor time, and students can progress fast.

I will be starting children’s Aerial Hoop classes from September 2014, please contact Jolene through the site, or on 07961 054 863 to register your interest, for these new lessons.

Or let me know if you are interested in parent/child Aerial Hoop classes as well, as a lot of the mum’s couldn’t resist a go for themselves 😉

Pole Club – Andover

1st pole Club

Last night was our first of many Pole Club‘s, it was fully booked, and next week is now fully booked as well!

In these first 2 weeks of the new Purity Studio being open, we have had beginner pole fitness classes, intermediate pole dancing lessons, and INSANITY. The classes have been buzzing in the heat.

Andover has some of the most supportive pole dancing students I have known, and their dedication to get together and come to pole club on a Friday, and bring cakes, is something for Andover to be proud of.

All are learning to pole dance for fun and fitness, whilst creating a vibrant atmosphere.

Special offers for all fitness classes are available, Pole Club is free to those on aerial courses or memberships.

All spaces are limited, as we believe in running small classes (1 per pole), to allow good safe practice of all moves.

 

Aerial Hoop starts on Tuesday. So our timetable is looking tasty.

Your first lesson is free, so what are you waiting for? 🙂
