Pilates In-Person Sessions

To ensure we comply with government guidance, as well as Public Health England (PHE) guidelines, there are a number of changes to how in-person classes will run.

Chertsey House

Due to the size of the room, in-person attendees are limited to a maximum of 6 per class.

All attendees will need to comply with the following measures when attending class:

  • Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of your class
  • Please wear a mask when on-site and inside the building. You are welcome to remove this during the class itself but please reapply it if leaving class to use the bathroom or when leaving.
  • Please keep personal belongings to a minimum
  • Where possible, please wear clothing specifically for the class, different to that worn earlier in the day. Please note that there are no changing facilities available on site.
  • You will need to bring your own mat and cushions, along with any other equipment you may want to use in class. I recommend bringing your own water bottle. Equipment will be available for purchase directly from me, but you will need to let me know in advance.
  • You will need to wait outside Room 3, adhering to social distancing and with your mask on, until I can go through the screening questions with you.
  • Please enter and leave the room one at a time, ensuring a 2m gap between you and any other attendees.
  • Please use the hand sanitiser immediately in front of the door when you enter the building and rub until your hands are dry. There will be additional hand sanitiser available inside the room that you are welcome to use at any time.
  • There are toilets on site – if you need to use these, please put your mask back on and ensure you use the hand sanitiser after leaving the room (due to touching door handles).
  • The door to the room will be kept open to ensure air flow and to limit touching door handles. We will keep the windows open during class, to improve air flow, so please dress accordingly.
  • When entering the room, I will go through a very brief covid-19 screening questionnaire and consent form with you, which you will need to sign (individual pens will be provided). If you are unwell on the day of class, please contact me before attending or rebook to another in-person session that week / join in via zoom.
  • There will be a QR code poster present; if you are able to, please use this to ‘log in’ to the building via the NHS Covid-19 app. Track & Trace information will be held as part of the class register as a backup/for those that do not have the app.
  • You will have the option of choosing whether to be visible to the zoom attendees (classes are not recorded and only available live to specific attendees) or to be out of sight of the camera. Please note that you may still be audible to zoom attendees. The covid-19 screening questionnaire and consent form will also include a consent area for being video’d, for those happy to do this.
  • Mat locations will be highlighted by the instructor (they may be marked on the floor with cones), to ensure 2m spacing between each mat. Please place your mat as directed and stay within this area during class.
  • I will aim to keep 2m away from attendees during the class but should you want / require hands on feedback (you can opt out of this entirely at the start of class), I will don gloves and a mask before approaching you and keep any contact to a minimum. I will be wearing a clean apron for each class and will change this in-between any close contact.
  • At the end of class, you will need to leave promptly, one at a time, ensuring you adhere to social distancing.. Please keep to the right side of the main door when leaving (when looking from the inside).

If you have any questions about how the in-person classes will run, please get in contact.

Physiotherapy / Pelvic Health

I’ll be completing all initial sessions via Video Call (Zoom) only, as per current Physio guidance. I can provide face to face or virtual sessions following this (we have to complete a risk assessment – how risky it is for you to see me vs possible benefits – and screen you for Covid-19 symptoms), as appropriate. The guidance we have to follow for for whether we can see someone face to face or not is here.

Face to Face (F2F) Sessions

We have to follow strict guidelines for Physiotherapy sessions and thus I can only provide F2F follow up sessions. Unfortunately I can’t provide Pilates 1:1s face-to-face at this time.

PPE | Do you need to wear a mask? | Hand Washing | Social Distancing | Can I bring someone with me? | Toilets

Personal Protective Equipment

I will be wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) for our sessions (single use) and the area we’re working in will be cleaned thoroughly between clients. If you’d prefer me to clean any areas you’ll be coming into contact with, in front of you, that is no problem at all – just let me know (just beware that the cleaning solution I use can take a few mins to dry!).
I will be wearing a set of nitrile gloves, a plastic disposable apron and a fluid resistant face mark (IIR) for each individual client. If you want to see the Government guidance that I am following regarding use of PPE, please see here.

Do you need to wear a mask?

I am not currently seeing anyone with possible/confirmed Covid-19, so there is no need for you to wear a mask. You are, however, very welcome to bring and wear your own (of any type).

Hand Washing

I have alcohol (80%) hand rub available on site and will ask you to use this on entry and exit. I will be cleaning my hands (either hand rub or soap and water) at the start and finish of our sessions and after any hands-on work together. You are welcome to use the hand rub at any time.

Social Distancing

For most of the session, I will be keeping a 2m distance away from you to minimise the risk of potential transmission to both you and me. We have been advised to keep any contact less than 2m apart, to within 15mins. For follow up sessions of 30mins, this would normally be how long we’d have out hands on you (assessement/treatment) but for initials we may need to be a bit more hands off / defer some tests to future sessions (I’ll be risk assessing as we go along and will let you know what I’m doing/not doing and why).

Can I bring someone with me?

Ideally, no.
If you need to bring your child with you, please let me know when booking, so that we can ensure a suitable set up and screening process. Only babies and infants are allowed in sessions. If you child is mobile then I’m afraid it is not possible to bring them along.
If you feel youneed someone with you during the session eg. a chaperone for an examination / interpreter, then please discuss this with me in advance of your session. I will try to accommodate this wherever possible, within the current rules.

Toilets

There is a toilet on site that you are welcome to use. Door handles and the toilet and sink area will be cleaned between use. There will be soap and hand rub available in the bathroom.
