TIPS FROM THE TUTOR
Below is a useful tip from our tutor, Michael, for while you’re taking part in the class. Try and follow along with what the Tutor tells you, but if you have any problems, just stop ask and the tutor will try and resolve the issue for you.
“I am very glad that I am now able to take part in my Pilates class again on Zoom – I’m still gaining a good workout. Michael is a very good teacher and so calm, he understood when I was unable to do a move and quickly provided a solution.”
