Welcome to this week’s fitness newsletter.
We’re planning to return back and returning to Craiglockhart Church Large Hall again on a Tuesday evening for our Fitness Pilates class from 21 September.
The church is having work done incl a new floor which is due to start soon and possibly take 2 weeks to complete although I’ve been told that the Large Hall can be used from Mon 20 Sept and that we can have our class on 21 Sept onwards so I’ve ...

NEWS UPDATE RE CLASSES – please read, consider & get back to me:
I know that I sent you the following in an email last week but if you didn’t get it, it was to tell you that I got an email last week from Dreghorn Loan Hall (DLH) bookings convenor asking for dates that I’d like to use DLH from for our classes.
We can potentially get back in as ...
Hi and welcome to this week’s fitness news
I’ve shared this very relaxing pose with you before so it’s just a reminder that lying on your back with your legs up the wall is very relaxing and beneficial to you.
Try it for 20 minutes when you’re feeling frazzled, anxious, when you’ve been on your feet all day or rushing around. Then practice it every day to feel calm and centred.
Having your feet up the wall helps improve circulation, digestion, relaxes the ...
Hi and welcome to this week’s Complementary Fitness news
In one of my Instagram posts this week, there was a photo of resistance bands and the post gave a description of various band types (ie hooped, long stretchy elastic length which can be tied or the one we use on a Wednesday morning is a rounded length of elastic with handles on the ends) and why they’re beneficial to use in our workouts.
When we pull on a resistance band, you can ...
Hi and welcome this this week’s newsletter.
I enjoyed all of our sunny outdoor classes last week and I loved the glorious weather we had all last week & particularly last Tuesday & Thursday evenings for our outdoor 6.15pm classes.
There was not a cloud in the sky on Tue and hardly any on Thurs evening, just perfect.
Of course, I/we still think that Thistle Padel Court is also just perfect for our Wed & Fri morning classes too.
It’s nice and cool while ...
Welcome to this week’s newsletter.
Starting off with more apologies, oops sorry about that!:
This time for having to cancel last Wednesday, Thursday & Friday classes and not because of the weather, but because I was unwell.
I hate cancelling and letting people down but I just couldn’t have made it on Wednesday & spent all day in bed.
Hopefully you got the separate emails cancelling each class & I also had a class cancellation notice on the Classes page of my website. Apologies ...
First of all, apologies for having to cancel last Tuesday’s class because of all the rain.
We’d had such a lot of rain as you know and it would’ve been miserable.
Here’s another reminder that this week’s Wednesday & Friday morning classes start at 9am start on Wed 14 July, Fri 16 July then we’re ‘back to normal at 10am’.
That is until the week of Wed 11 Aug & Fri 13 August when again, it’s a 9am start – ah the school ...
We all know what we feel like in the morning when we have or haven’t had a good night’s sleep.
If our sleep has been disturbed, we feel groggy & really tired when we know we have to get up in the morning to face the day.
Maybe we’ve gone to bed too late, maybe we’ve watched the news or a fast-paced all-action thriller on tv just before going to bed and instead of feeling relaxed, our mind is racing and we ...

You’ll have heard that we should ‘eat a rainbow’ of colours for variety by eating different vegetables & fruits. When thinking veg, we can opt for courgettes (maybe spirilized?), raw grated or finely sliced carrots, cubes of cooked aubergines, red, yellow, orange, & green peppers, raw grated or sliced & cooked beetroot, green leafy veg & slices of avocado ...
