Report: Celebrating our 10 year anniversary!

A client at our bring a friend day in Hampton

To mark the special occasion we hosted our first ‘Bring a Friend’ open day in Hampton Wick!

It’s around 10 years since founder Kirsten Harle set up The Pilates Suite, with the first studio in Hampton Wick, followed by the opening in Farnham a year or so later. We’re lucky to have a large proportion of regular clients who enjoy and benefit from the variety of mat, equipment and BarreConcept Pilates classes that we provide.

Showing those who may have only had an opportunity to try Pilates on a mat, or perhaps not at all, the potential of Pilates equipment like the Reformer, Cadillac, the Wunda Chair and Orbit is important to us. You can find out more about each of these pieces of equipment here.

So as a thank you to our existing clients at Hampton Wick, on Wednesday 13 January we opened up our studio for a ‘Bring a Friend Day’ full of free 60 minute taster classes! Our clients booked into hourly slots and brought a friend each. It was a fun day for our Principal Teacher, Maria, who had a chance to demonstrate how Pilates exercises can help everyone in different ways. One theme that kept coming up in the feedback we received was how the guests could feel how the various pieces of equipment, used properly, were able to target specific muscle groups and also how well stretched they felt afterwards.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended! Here are just a few of the comments we received…

“I’ve done Pilates in other studios, however the teaching techniques from Maria helped me feel I was doing it all correctly.”

“I loved the session – it made me feel taller and more relaxed. I’d definitely like to come back.”

“I really liked the session and felt taller and very well stretched!”

“I was very active until I broke my ankle recently. Today I feel good and it’s a step closer to getting my confidence back. I’m very keen to start coming to these classes after my initial rehabilitation finishes.”

“It was a great experience to try all the different machines and I’ll be in touch to book another class.”

“I already attend mat Pilates classes but I really liked trying the equipment and I could feel myself using the muscles more.”

“I have a back problem and was worried that I wouldn’t able to stay for the full hour, even with it being an introductory class. I needn’t have worried as I loved it; my back was fine and I stayed until the end.”
