Covid-19 Guidelines & Procedures
These guidelines apply to in-person classes.

If you are attending online sessions and have had Covid-19 or suspect you may have it now, please check with your GP before continuing with classes.

Who can attend in-person Pilates sessions
For your safety, in-person sessions are not available for anyone in a high-risk group, immune-compromised or pregnant.

Others in the moderate risk group (e.g aged over 70) or who have had Covid-19 must obtain a GP’s consent in writing to proceed with in-person Pilates sessions.

If you live with someone in these groups you must:

  • weigh the risks together taking into account your specific circumstances
  • discuss with their GP if necessary
  • make your own decision about whether to attend in-person classes.

Online sessions are available for anyone unable to attend in-person sessions at any time.

If you live with others I rely on your honest reporting of their status as well as your own.

General Guidelines
Anyone who is unwell should NOT come to class.

Please do not attend your session and contact me to reschedule if:

  1. You or someone in your household is feeling unwell, has a cold or flu like symptoms e.g runny nose, ear ache, cough, fever, chills, muscle pain, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat.
  1. You or a close contact (e.g family member or co-worker) has a temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss of sense of smell or taste – use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.
  1. You have been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 or suspected COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to your appointment.
  1. You have travelled overseas (to any country) or to any known COVID-19 UK hotspots in the 14 days prior to your appointment.
