Thinking About Taking Up Pilates? Will Clare Brown Pilates Benefit You?

Pilates is a specialised, highly efficient form of exercise tested and endorsed by a broad range of health professionals. Clare Brown Pilates is very effective when you are seeking to address specific joint/muscle issues or the general aches and pains in backs, shoulders, knees etc. brought on by poor posture or intense training. It is good for you whether you are new to exercise or an experienced sports professional seeking to redress muscle imbalances and strengthen your core.

My clients report significant benefits; in their posture, strength, flexibility and general well being and a gradual reduction in recurrent injuries that previously stopped them participating in their favourite activities. More specifically, their reviews express improvements in - core strength, balance, mental focus, sleep, energy levels, sports performance, enhanced recovery from muscle/joint operations and injuries. Clients regularly attending my sessions say they help to alleviate head to toe aches and pains and give relief from the symptoms of stress. My clients ages range from 16-86. There profiles range from; haven't exercised for years, to experienced runners, football players and tri-athletes. They describe thinking more positively and feeling empowered in aquiring a sense of well being.

Pilates With Clare Brown What to expect from our Pilates Sessions

The therapeutic benefits of Clare Brown Pilates sessions include relief from back ache, muscle and joint Pain, improved breathing patterns and de-stressing of the mind and body.
 
You will develop good postural awareness and improved body alignment. You will achieve this through, calm, focussed, enjoyable mental and physical training.

You will be guided in developing a deep, relaxed breathing technique alongside the exercises. Once the breathing and the exercises become second nature to you (and within a few weeks this starts to happen) you will find this has a calming and balancing effect on your mind and body. We will use mats, blocks and bands, provided until you get your own. Our Pilates sessions will give you an excellent whole body maintenance programme or a wonderful approach to recovery.

You will work to your own level of ability. Whether you're fit and healthy and looking for balanced strength, tone and flexibility throughout your body, injured (with the go ahead from your doctor) or suffering general aches, young/old, male/female, Pilates could really work for you! 

You will meet super people from all walks of life and we certainly have our moments of fun.

Feel Better Through Pilates it's so effective at making you feel better!

  • Pilates will train your mind to become more aware of your body position and to activate a central core of deep postural muscles, which will very effectively strengthen and stabilise you trunk and spine.
  • Stemming out from this strong central core all the muscles of your body are effectively and safely strengthened and tone. Muscle imbalances will be gradually corrected through retraining and reprogramming your muscle memory.
  • Pilates can support the recovery of an injured area of your body by safely strengthening the muscle groups connected to it or surrounding it.
  • Pilates brings together your mind with your body and the double benefit is a strong efficient body and a calm focussed mind.
  • Core-control strengthening has been scientifically proven to reduce back pain. Many of my clients, who were initially referred to me by their doctor or physiotherapist with chronic back pain, cannot believe just how effectively Pilates has reduced their symptoms and need for strong pain killers and improved their overall feeling of wellbeing.

About Me A Brief Intro About Me, My Experience & Training

My name is Clare Brown I have been teaching Pilates around Beeston, Nottingham for 10 years. Pilates cured my troublesome sciatica and had such a positive impact on my general posture and well being that I built it into my life by training to teach it. Initially I taught Pilates part time. My client base built and my Pilates business took over from my established profession as a lecturer and head of department and teaching Pilates became my full time vocation. Anatomy and physiology fascinate me so I happily research extensively. I am interested in how much control we have over our own well being and how addressing postural problems can have a positive impact throughout our body. I enjoy meeting my clients with their vast variety of life experiences, some perfectly healthy and many with conditions to address. I get great fulfilment from supporting them, as they regain confidence in their own body and realise the power they have to heal themselves. Pilates is not a miracle cure and predictably it works better with regular practice. Many clients have avoided other forms of exercise for fear of exacerbating their problems but they come and make great progress; the benefits are clear in their improved performance week by week. I believe that through a better understanding of your own body posture and a safe, regular, Pilates exercise plan, you have the power to improve the quality of your life and reduce the risk of injury and pain. Our bodies are designed for movement and Pilates is movement designed to work in harmony with your body’s structure. I totally believe in the positive effects of Pilates and I think it’s also fun and enjoyable as I have a great bunch of people attending my sessions.

Latest Update For September Reopening of Hall Classes

Four Classes Recommencing Starting Monday 7th Sept.

Registers for each venue will be posted by Wednesday 2nd Sept at the latest so please keep a close eye here on my web site.

Only a Few Spaces Still Available For September

I've filled both evening classes and one of the two daytime session up to my elected safe maximum of 14 participants per session. I have a few day time spaces left at St Leonards, a super venue. Please text or call me on my mobile ASAP to secure one of these spaces. They are going quickly 07868717915

I have done all I can to accommodate as many of you wishing to return as possible, still with the best will in the world some of you are on waiting lists for now. To make up for this I will try to post at least one hall class a week live for those of you subscribed to my Private Members face book page.

Hall Class Payments For Your Pre-Booked Place Will Be Block Booked and Ideally Paid On Line (just let Me Know if this poses any Problem at all eg. if you never use online banking and use only cheques or cash)

My Bank Details are- Clare L Brown/ Nat West Account/ Sort Code 51-70-06/ Account number 76532747

or

Text your email address to my mobile 07868717915 for a pay pal monthly payment link.

Payment for your hall classes will be paid in advance please, 4 week block booking £28 or 6 week block booking £40. More payment details e.g. using unused tickets purchased just before lockdown...further down page 

Keeping Our Classes Safely Sociable

Our face2face Pilates classes will reopen as 4 classes in my three largest venues- with a maximum of 14 in each, which is why pre booking and paying is essential, to manage numbers safely. We will easily have more than 2 metres space between us. Please look after each others by cancelling in advance if you have Covid style symptoms. If unlucky enough to test positive at any point you can freeze your payment and start back when you are fully fit. Be reassured I am being tested every week.

Arrival and Entry at Venue

I'm arriving 15 mins early. You arrive wearing masks and respect each others 2 metres space. You will pay in advance via standing order or pay pal subscription (unless a cheque or cash payment is pre-negotiated). Attendance is pre booked in this way, to avoid queueing to pay and register.

I temperature test you on the way in, with a no touch forehead thermometer. Once you have distanced your mat in specified rows, with spaces at least two metres apart you can choose to remove or keep your mask on.

My lovely clients, thank you to all of you who got back to me. I have spent every spare moment over the last week or so sending out and replying to texts and emails, ploughing through registers of attendance from before lockdown, compiling registers which aim to put appropriate people together, keeping to a maximum of 14 per class (not easy). Please contact me if you wish to return and have not seen my web site or received a message from me.

Details on Payment Options

Please txt me with clear information to my mobile 07868717915 if any of the following apply to you a) You wish to use unused tickets purchased just before lockdown as part payment, making the rest as an online payment. b) You want to transfer your online fb page membership payment to a face2face class membership payment c) You would like to take advantage of a special offer to continue with both facetoface classes and face book classes for a four weekly cost of £42 (£14 a month saving)

Please Bring Your Own Mat To Hall Classes Reopening in September

I very strongly advise you to purchase and bring with you your own mat, block and band. In the absence of a band a pair of stretchy nylon tights will do, a household cushion can take the place of a block for your head.

Found these on Amazon which look reasonable

Latest Update 15/08/20 

Re Starting Live Hall Classes Again in September

Please can I ask everyone who see's this request to alert any friends or family who usually attend my classes. This message is also open to new clients.

In order to decide which classes to re-start in September I need to know who will definitely be starting back in September if current regulations re. Covid guidelines continue. I won't necessarily open all classes again unless I have a confirmation of sufficient numbers. Be assured I will be strictly implementing guidelines to make our classes as safe as they can possibly be. I will give more info on this once I have confirmation from you of your interest. Please text to confirm your interest so I can compile lists. Let me know what your usual class day and time was if you had one. 

Thank you

Best wishes

re Clare Brown Pilates Online

Following feedback from many of you I will be continuing with my Online   Pilates for the foreseeable future :)

I am continuing to post new videos every week and thank you very much for your continued support and your private and public messages of encouragement and positive feedback. I am pleased to be able to give you continued access to the wide range of different session themes and levels of videos I have already posted. I am really pleased you are enjoying the online service, adapting sessions to fit your needs and finding favourite routines amongst those offered. 

My Online Pilates service is produced on face book which is very easy to join. It works out at £7 a week, approx. the same price as a weekly class but you get access to a full library of different themed Pilates video sessions, with new ones added each week, you can also make personal requests for me to produce sessions or instruction to address specific themes or issues. It gives you a whole lot of choice any time of day to suit you. Please text me if you would like to subscribe.

Best wishes

So pleased to at last be ready to invite you to our lovely Pilates page on face book. here we can exercise and connect and hopefully enjoy some quality feel-good time.

Subscription per month at £28 will work out approx. the same per week as a weekly group session did, before we had the Covid 19 lockdown.

Making Your Pilates Sessions As Accessible To You As Possible 

 

These are unprecedented times, some of you are self isolating alone, others with a house full of family and kids. We have people working from home among us and some of you are our wonderful critical care and core community support workers with demanding shifts (Thank you so much! x) After deliberation and research I have chosen a private members page as the best overall solution. it will provide a daily lift for those who need it as I will post something most days and you will be able to access that session whenever is possible for you and with the benefit of being able to practise favourite sessions more than once. there will be the potential to leave comments, chat and communicate with each other. I hope this will provide a place of connection, and a continuation of the fun and mutual support that we are used to sharing and enjoying in our classes. It is a way I can accommodate and support people of all levels of experience and ability and invite those new to Pilates who would benefit from this kind of support during the crisis. 

I will post further details on subscription in the next few days when I have it all set up and ready to go. I have made a start recording the first videos with my dog barking, cats walking in and lying on my mat and my 103 year old neighbour rattling on the door with her walking stick its all good fun ;)

1-2-1 Bespoke Pilates Sessions

I will also be offering 1-2-1 bespoke Pilates sessions on Skype and ZOOM for those who have specific needs or just need a bit of 1-2-1 attention.

I will post more detailed information very soon.

Lets stay together as a community and help each other through this. I aim to do my best to give the support to keep you as well and healthy as possible. Working on line is a whole new ball game to me as I am a very hands on teacher, so bear with me as I develop my on line approach. I am eager to provide the same level of professional service you are used to; working safely and with the fullest benefits possible.

 

 

Calling my IT and Online Business Savvy Clients

I am putting out a request to all my IT and online business savvy clients to share your expertise and opinions with me on the best most simple and accessible ways to deliver my Pilates online. Please contact me by email, text or phone call.

Lets Support Each Other and See How Well We Can Make This Work 

I am now looking forward to using all our imagination, determination and the positive spirit I know you all posses to see how well we can make this work. See it as a new adventure until we can get back together in our usual classes. Like me you may be a technophobe but we'll soon get passed that little hurdle.
