Penny Matthews runs classes based on Pilates, suitable for both men and women, which helps with concentration, breathing, co-ordination, balance and movement.
Classes last for 1 hour each week, on Wednesday, 2-3pm or Thursday, 11-12. People are welcome to come to both, as the sessions are slightly different. Although it is good to come regularly, there is no requirement that you should attend every week. The exercises are done in bare feet (no trainers) and no special clothing is required, just wear something loose and flexible. Classes involve exercise mats and bands but you can try the class first without buying anything, just bring along a thick towel to use instead of a mat. Take a look at the photos to see what goes on.
The cost of the class would vary according to how many people attended, about £3 if five people attend, less if there are more members. Refreshments are available if anyone would like to stay on afterwards for a chat.
Classes are held at The Studio, Westward Barbell Gym, which is next door to Planet Play in Westward Business Centre, Mill Street, Crediton EX17 1HB (entrance opposite Morrison's). There is parking at the gym.
Do contact Penny by email (the "carrier pigeon" above right) or phone for more information or to sign up - everyone is welcome.
