Message effective from 20th March – 23rd March 2020
We are sorry to inform you that the Pilates Pod studio is currently closed to the public until further notice.
The heartbreaking decision follows the requirement by Government on 20th March, that businesses in the Leisure and Hospitality industries such as gyms should close their doors to further prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
We fully understand that this will be inconvenient and disappointing for our clients. At the same time, we hope you understand that this is a difficult and complicated time for us, while we gather information about the help which is available to us and to our staff. The most important thing of all, is to play our part in protecting the health of our clients and the community at large.
We ask you please to bear with us at this time. We understand that there are many questions to be answered, and we will endeavour to reply to everyone as soon as we have more clarity. We have been working hard to announce our online timetable but this has now been slightly delayed due to the new developments around school and nursery closures, key worker issues and details to do with staff eligibility to work. All of which affect our staff and all of which we need to wait for further detail from the Government before we can do any further. But rest assured our classes and 1:1’s will be going online, you will be able to use your credits and memberships and those that already do sessions this way, simply love them!
To say we are heartbroken to close our doors for now is an understatement. In 9 years, we have never been shut, except a few days every Christmas.
We’d like to thank you for your patience, understanding and support in this most difficult of times, and ask with the greatest respect if you could give us a few days to process the impact of what’s just happened and spend the weekend hugging our family tight whom we have hardly seen of late whilst trying to deal with everything else.
We will be in touch as soon as we possibly can with further updates so please do check your emails and social media announcements.
Stay safe, stay kind to each other and don’t forget to “pull your deepest abdominals in and up!”
With our love and virtual hugs,
Michelle, Ed and the Pod Team x
