PILATES with Lesley 


Frequently Asked Questions


Where are the courses held?

Courses are held in central Bath and in Bathampton, about two miles south-east on the A36.  Full details of are on the locations page.

How do I join?

Click the 'contact me' link to send me an email or just give me a ring (or leave a message) on Bath (01225) 42I2O6.  Note that you don't need to book a place on the Thursday evening Zumba Gold® 'drop-in' sessions; just turn up in time for a 1905 start and join in the fun!  

Experience needed?
No!   -  The first session of each course is an introductory session aimed specifically at beginners or newcomers.  

What kit do I need? 
Please bring a small towel.  I provide mats, but some clients prefer to bring their own.  Please wear  loose, comfortable, clothing.

Too late for the forthcoming term? 
Inquire about the next term (commencing 1 October) or keep watching this website for details. Remember, Thursday evening Zumba Gold® sessions (see timetable for dates) are 'drop-in' - no pre-booking required!

What if I have to miss a class? 
No problem. Provided there's space available, you can usually be fitted into an alternative session to avoid missing a week.

How do I pay?
Cheque, cash or bank transfer.  I'm sorry, but I can't take credit cards. 

Is there a 'drop-in' Pilates class? 
No. Following Pilates Institute® best practice, my classes are designed as progressive courses, enabling participants safely to learn and develop various techniques week by week, starting with an essential initial assessment for newcomers.  While missing the odd class is not usually a problem, turning up on an occasional or random basis simply would not work, and could even present dangers.  (Note, however, that my  Zumba Gold® session are drop-in, see above.)
