Ok, never thought I'd do this, but Platypus Pilates now has a facebook page.
I would appreciate it if you could "like" me, so this page actually becomes visible (and therefor useful!).
I know that there should be some handy icon somewhere on this page that you can tick, but I haven't managed to find it yet and the web master is too busy....
School has started again and so have the mat- and mixed equipment classes. All scheduled classes are full, but please feel free to contact me and tell me what time would suit you and we might be able to add some extra classes. Or, drop in at Jai Thaiboxing, Level 1, Victoria Street, next to Stationary Warehouse, on Thursdays at 12 for a 50 minutes Pilates mat-session.
I am back from my trip to Italy and am happy to say that I have passed the level II Fascial Manipulation exam.
The studio will be open again from Monday September 30th for studio and/or Fascial Manipulation seesions. Matclasses will start again on Monday October 14th, except for the advanced Men Mat-class, which will start again on Wednesday October 2nd.
The Pilates class at Jai Thai Boxing will commence on Thursday October 3rd. That is a drop-in class, so if you want to give Pilates a go, that might be the way to go.
Hope to see you soon in one of my classes!
The studio will be closed from Monday September 2nd till Monday September 30th for I will be in Italy to attend level II of the Fascial Manipulation course.
Some matclasses will resume on Wednesday October 2nd. Su-Lin will take over the Thursday lunchtime classes at Jai Thaiboxing an d I will take over again on Thursday October 3rd.
In the meantime: get to know these 5 Tibetans!
...that we are not starting on March 26th, with matclasses for cyclists. Cyclists often have very specific problems, e.g. rounded shoulders and upper back and very tight hamstrings, lower back and/or calf muscles. So we have developed a series of matclasses that focus on releasing the tight muscles and strengthening the weaker muscles. The plan is to run lunchtime classes in town at JAI, from 12 - 12.50 and evening classes here at the Studio, 6.30 - 7.30.
I am still keen on running these classes, but need a couple more interested cyclists. I will update as soon as I know when classes will start.
Sometimes when you say a word over and over too often it starts to lose its meaning. “Point and Flex” is a common command in any pilates class, and frankly we're sick of hearing it – we've been called Point & Flex Pilates for over ten years, and it's time for a change.
As our client base has grown it's gone from almost exclusively female to almost one third male and we thought the new logo should reflect this by removing the feminine hibiscus from the logo.
Enter the Platypus. The story goes that when the platypus was first discovered, scholars thought it was a hoax: sewn together from parts of other creatures. Duck bill, otter body, beaver tail – a mammal that lays eggs, with both mammal and reptile DNA (plus a bit of bird to keep things even more interesting).
At Platypus Pilates we combine different disciplines, including yoga and martial arts, without losing the Pilates principles, so we can offer you the best possible experience
Unfortunately building a website is like being stung by the Platypus's venomous spur….it hurts and heals slowly!
