Class Cancellation Process

 

Please note the class cancellation policy at Absolute Yoga:

 

Early Cancellation
 
An early cancellation is when a class is cancelled four hours or more before the class start time.
 
Late Cancellation
 
A late cancellation is when a class is cancelled less than four hours before the class start time.
 
Members who late cancel three or more classes in a calendar month will be unable to book any classes online or at reception for two weeks.
 
This suspension refers to “reserving a space” and so such members will still be able to attend classes but via a “drop in” basis only.
 
This process is to ensure that spaces in popular classes are utilised to their full capacity. This means that we are able to give members on waiting lists sufficient notice that they have secured a place on a specific class.

1. Self cancel via our online booking system

 

2. Telephone (leave a voice mail if needed): 0151 928 1029

Namaste,

Guest Blogger: Dan – Hot Pilates, Week Two

 
Over the next few weeks, our guest blogger, Dan, will be posting updates about his experience participating in our Hot Pilates classes. We selected Dan for this task because he is completely new to Pilates and, therefore, will be able to describe the changes that he is seeing in his body and mind from doing three Hot Pilates classes a week at Absolute Yoga.

 

 

This is Dan’s second blog. You can read the first blog here.

 

Forgive me for i have sinned, a little less actually.
 
This is as unexpected to me as I’m sure it is to you, the whole listening to your body element has extended beyond avoiding strains in the class and into “regular” life. I’m eating salad, ON PURPOSE! This is not limited to straight after classes either when my metabolism goes through the roof and only good manners keep me from devouring all the orange segments provided along with the cold towels. Whether its a mentality change or an actual physical craving I don’t know, but its welcome regardless.
 
I couldn’t make a class last week and found myself genuinely missing it and gutted to not be in the lesson, this could have been down to the traffic jam i found myself in instead of a nice warm room and but is very much more likely down to the positive and refreshing feelings I get from being in the class.
 
Practice makes perfect? Yeah? Not yet it doesn’t. The actual aim of the first week of lessons was to stay in the room, in the heat, for the full hour. I did more than this, not much more granted, but still more. There were times when I stopped the move and got a swig of water or wiped the sweat off, and one occasion when I thought i might pass out (what not listening to your body gets you). This week I have stuck with it a lot more, less time face down in a puddle of my own sweat unless I’m told to be there, no black out moments either. The moves are still coming thick and fast and no two lessons are ever the same.
 
Namaste kids

Guest Blogger: Dan – My First Hot Pilates Class at Absolute Yoga

 

Over the next few weeks, our guest blogger, Dan, will be posting updates about his experience participating in our Hot Pilates classes. We selected Dan for this task because he is completely new to Pilates and, therefore, will be able to describe the changes that he is seeing in his body and mind from doing three Hot Pilates classes a week at Absolute Yoga.

 

This is Dan’s first blog…

 

Forgive me for I have sinned, quite a lot.

 

I am 31 years of age, 5’11” and the wrong side of 13 stone, most of it made of yoghurt. I’ve never been one for gym attendance, it bores me. I have climbed regularly indoors for a couple of years but recently this has tailed off as life got in the way. Suffice to say I’m out of shape and recognise this.

 

New year, new start thoughts were swirling round my head when I got in touch with the studio after seeing a tweet about needing a person to try Hot Pilates and report back on what it’s like.

 

So on a damp Friday morning I presented myself at Absolute Yoga in Crosby, ready willing and nearly able to try downward facing fatboy, arms in the air like you just don’t care and all the other yoga poses that will be thrown my way.

 

I’d met up the day before to have a look at the facilities and ask any questions that I thought I needed to, so I had an idea of what to expect. It was Hot Pilates rather than yoga, at this point this made no sense to me, I thought it was different names for the same deal, but we’ll see how wrong I was.

 

The hot room is softly lit and very calming, the heat is like a hot day on holiday, not the smack in the face that you get in a steam room or sauna. There are changing rooms for the girls and boys who attend with a pair of showers in the men’s area and I’d expect the same in the ladies’ area.

 

So with very little trepidation I threw on a pair of shorts and a close fitting t-shirt as advised (so it wouldn’t ride up during downward facing fatboy) and picked a spot on the back row so I could see what the teacher, Paula, was doing and copy the poses.

 

In the short time I’ve been attending it’s been made very clear to me that you should listen to your body, push yourself within reason but don’t injure yourself. Do not worry about looking daft – no one is bothered, the only person paying any attention to you is the teacher, no one else looks because they are all concentrating on themselves. Above all, you should go at your own pace.

 

Remember that heat I mentioned? Lovely when you are sitting still? It’s a different matter once the class begins, we did some gentle stretches to warm up for the coming lesson and almost immediately I was sweating buckets. This is both a testament to my lack of fitness and the temperature in the room. However, the heat is never uncomfortable and, to me, it feels cleansing but it surprised me nonetheless.

 

The moves ranged from gentle and flowing to dynamic and hard work for me. There were often different levels of intensity for each move but always staying centred and engaged with your core. The key difference between yoga and Pilates is that rather than hold the position, Pilates encourages you to repeat the move and create the exercise this way (I think that this works on stamina which is apparently one of the eight principles of Pilates!).

 

When I told my mates that I was going to Hot Pilates there was a few “for girls that” shouts. However, having now attended a week of classes this makes no sense to me: it is hard work!

 

I’m not the only man in the class and while all the ladies that attend complete their moves with quiet grace it’s me and the rest of the fellas grunting and gasping their way through the class. It’s supposed to be a quiet room with concentration on yourself but at least once a lesson there will be a “kinell” from somewhere in the room.

 

I leave the classes feeling refreshed and energised, I follow the classes with a salad and a coconut water based drink for electrolytes and genuinely look forward to the next lesson.
