Do I need to book in advance?
Booking is not essential to attend any classes but it is advisable to book PRE/POST NATAL classes and workshops in advance.
What kind of clothing should I wear to a Zumba Class?
Anything that allows you to move freely and allows body heat to dissipate! Active wear would be perfect! Wear loose, comfortable clothing that BREATHES. You will work up a sweat.
What kind of shoes should I wear for a Zumba Class?
Wear PROPER SHOES – acceptable shoes for Zumba classes include court shoes, aerobic shoes or jazz shoes/sneakers. They should have minimal tread on the sole and provide optimum cushion and support for dance-fitness classes. Running shoes are not ideal because they have a heavy tread on the bottom and are designed for forward movement (not sliding and pivoting).
What should I bring to a Zumba Class?
Plenty of water and a towel or sweat bands (you WILL work up a sweat!)
What should I bring for a Pilates class?
Bring a mat and a towel (if you need one for neck support). I’m providing with the rest of the equipment (and I do have a few spare mats as well)
What should I wear to a Barre Concept or a Pilates class?
Wear something that you are comfortable in and does not restrict movement – legging, jogging bottoms, t shirt, etc. We do not wear trainers or any footwear in a Pilates class but you can wear trainers in a Barre Concept class (though we would advise to do the workout barefoot)
Is there an age limit on classes?
PILATES 16+ (14+ supervised)
BARRE CONCEPT 16+ (14+ supervised)
I have a medical condition that might affect me when exercising. What should I do?
At your first session, you will be asked to fill in a health screening form, so that I know if you have any health issues that might affect you in class. For some conditions, you might be asked to get your GP’s approval before exercising. (An example would be high blood pressure that is NOT responding to medication.)
If your health changes, you should tell me BEFORE THE EXERCISE STARTS.
Do classes run all year round, or is it term-time only?
Most classes run all year round, apart from two at Christmas. If a class has to close for the odd week, perhaps because we cannot have the hall that week, or Natallia is away on a course/ect details will be posted on this website, our Facebook page, in the e-newsletter and in notices displayed in class.
