This class is brilliant for post-injury rehabilitation, once the physiotherapy programme has been completed, and for all wide awake athletes and dancers aware of tension/flacidity in muscle groups not performing as well as desired.Teaching is quick fire and robust.
For the alternative entry into the delights of Pilates movement please try one of our other 2 Entry Level/Taster classes.These will give you more time to assimilate ideas and technique and are a steady, stealthy progression towards achieving more than ever anticipated.
COURSE PRICES post Taster.
Level 1 Beginners. First 10 weeks
If paying in class at the end of the Taster Deal, £120 cash (sorry this venue does not have facilities to process credit/debit cards but you could do payment using your mobile and on line banking if done just before the end of class so the transaction confirmation can be shown there and then to Chris)
Otherwise a £140. Pay Pal button is available online for payment by credit/debit cards
Second payment. This is a balancing fee, if necessary to bring you into line with the 4 terms of 10 weeks each year. Your first course of 10 might cross the terms or might be perfectly in line with the term.
Your second full term with PBA. If you are keen enough to pay early, Wk 7 of the existing term, then PBA gives you a £20 discount. Pay only £120. The following week it returns to the full price of £140. All fees must be in by Wk 8 for the following term. Thank you.
Payment for your third term is by Standing Order Mandate (SOM) to save time in the higher level classes. This needs to be set up according to a strictly controlled schedule so that payment reaches PBA a term in advance ...to be continued...
