Complementary Fitness 24 Feb News

As you know, life is about balance with ups and downs, light and shade, good times and bad times.  We’ve eagerly anticipating the birth of our second grandchild this week which is very exciting for us. 

Last Wednesday though, we visited my brother-in-law who was became extremely ill over the course of a couple of days (even though he’d been living with cancer) but unfortunately, passed away that afternoon.  We’ve all been devastated with the sad news.  I mentioned in class on Friday morning that I’d let ...

Complementary Fitness 27 Jan news

I read a recent fitness article in Dr Mercola’s website about the benefits of yoga on brain health saying that “yoga — which is suitable for most people, regardless of age or fitness level — has been shown to support healthy brain function and stave off neurological decline. 

Through modern imaging technology, researchers have been able to objectively confirm that yoga impacts the brain in beneficial ways that translate into improved attention, mental processing speed, executive function and emotional regulation.

Regular yoga practice has also been shown to ...

Oh I’m soooo glad we’re back in Craiglockhart church hall again this week.  Phew!  You’ll know that if you were at our class last week in Waterside SC, then by the time the slimmers and the last of the leaders eventually left, it was 8.05/8/15pm!  It was a joke (not very funny though).  We did actually start our class while one of the slimmers was still being weighed (around 7.45pm when the class was supposed to finish at 7.30pm)  and I’m sure that they weren’t very ...

You’ll see on the Classes page of my website that on Tuesday 14 Jan, our 7.30pm Fitness Pilates class is in Waterside Social Club, 26 Inglis Green Road.

Waterside Social Club is on the left side where the entrance to Sainsbury’s car park is. 

If driving, park in Sainsbury’s car park for the hour.  

It was the only venue at the time that was available and I’m sure it’ll be fine.

If you’re not sure exactly where it is though, there’s a website which shows the ...

I hope that you had a good week ‘off’ last week and I’m sure that you’re all organised now for ‘the big day’.  I also hope that you’ve had some time to relax and put your feet up too. 

Last week, we were away and 3 of us (inc our son) had an amazing week in Club La Santa resort, Lanzarote.  We just absolutely love it there and at the end of the week, (as before), we just didn’t want ...

Complementary Fitness 11 Nov news + updates

Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes.

Advance notice re Thurs 12 Dec:

as you know, the General Election has been set for Thurs 12 Dec and instead of having our class in the Dell Room, as we usually do, I thought I’d just cancel the class that night.  Coz of the date, I’m sure that the Dell Room/Colinton Parish Church may be used for Christmas parties or other events especially being so close to Christmas.  I also wondered if you might be busy with other ...
