Pilates Classes for beginners – with Sakine
A great Opportunity to stay physically and Mentally toned -Whilst raising money to help with the Pandemic Internationally
Mondays 7-8pm on Zoom
Suitable for all ages and abilities
Rtn Sakine Faulkner is qualified to teach Stott Pilates matwork, and equipment Pilates.
Pilates is a safe exercise routine if instructions are followed correctly. Every participant should listen to their body and not complete an exercise if it creates any discomfort. However, after the first few sessions your muscles will ache as the muscles are beginning to strengthen.
Peter Wilkins will send out the Zoom invites to all members prior to each session- just click on the link as normal just before the session. You will also find the link by logging in to the club members section of this website.
This is open to non-Rotarians too; such friends, family etc. that club members may choose to invite. (but take care not to spread the link openly).
In return we ask for donations to the Rotary Trust Account International Pandemic response, with a suggested donation of £5 per session (although more always welcome!)
Donations can be given by BACS or cheque. You should have received details in the emails from Peter.
- Ideally you will need a yoga or Pilates mat and a cushion for under the head.
- A ball of 20 cm diameter is also useful; (a towel or similar could be wrapped up in a bag and used instead).
- Gym clothes or similar should be worn, with colours that don’t merge into the background.
- The screen should be placed on the floor and perpendicular to the floor. So that Sakine can see you on the mat. The mat should be placed parallel to the screen so that you can see Sakine by turning your head only, and Sakine can see you from head to foot (about 2.5 meters from your screen should be the right distance).
