KEVIN JONES YOGA & PILATES | NEW TO CLASS?
If you are new to class then you will find lots of useful information below. Please do feel free to contact us with any questions or queries!
YOGA & PILATES ARE PRACTICES IN MINDFULNESS
BE PREPARED by arriving at least 10 minutes early to register. You can download the registration form & bring the completed form with you on your first class.
BE EQUIPPED: mats, blocks, bricks, belts & resistance bands will be supplied BUT please bring the following to ALL classes where possible:
suitable non-slip Pilates or Yoga mat (if want to use your own)
eye pillow [optional].
BE ON TIME as latest disturbs the teacher who often has important information to give at the start of class as well as disrupting other students. Sometimes we can't help being late, if so (within 5 minutes of advertised start time only!) just enter the room & sit by the door until the teacher can find you a space.
BE BAREFOOT by leaving shoes & socks either outside of the studio space or at the back of the room [but away from your mat where they can be a trip hazard].
BE SEEN by checking-in with the teacher before every class.
BE PRESENT by kindly switching your mobile to silent or completely off during your class; why not leave it at home or in your car so you can really 'disconnect [from technology] in order to connect [to your practice]'?
BE QUIET & approach your yoga / Pilates practice with mindful serenity.
BE CAREFUL by placing all water bottles & personal items against the walls to keep space around your mat accessible.
BE CONSIDERATE: if you have borrowed a mat, please wipe it down after use and replace the mats & other equipment back neatly.
YES, PLEASE: I would love to receive hands-on assists during this class.
NO, THANKS: I would prefer not to receive hands-on assists during this class.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO A PILATES CLASS?
Pilates probably won't get you as warm or sweaty as yoga class!
Wear loose comfortable & warm clothing
You can be barefoot or wear your socks!
Have a cardigan, fleece or blanket for relaxation at the end
Bring a suitable non-slip mat (yoga or Pilates style)
Feel free to bring a bottle of water (unlike yoga, it is okay to drink during Pilates class).
