To our wonderful clients,
Due to COVID-19, we have elected to temporarily cease offering our in-studio Pilates classes and physiotherapy appointments at West End and Annerley, effective immediately.
Online Pilates classes
Stay tuned for our offering of personalised online Pilates (POP) classes, to join from the comfort and safety of your home. These will be delivered live by your favourite teachers, via technology that is simple to use and accessible to all.
During these challenging times this will be a great way to keep moving freely, maintain a bit of routine, and enable our team to keep practicing the profession they love. We are pulling out all stops to have this service available ASAP and will update you in the next few days.
Products for home exercise
We will also continue to post our range of exercise props and accessories as normal, so check out our online shop for your home exercise and release needs.
The product range will be expanded in coming days, so check back early next week for the new additions. These will come in handy for your personalised online class.
A final word
The difficult decision to put our Pilates classes on hold is to do our utmost to look after the health of our clients and our team. The recent Government directive indicates that gyms, fitness centres and indoor sporting centres are considered non-essential and must shut down for the duration. It was initially and is still unclear whether this mandate includes small-group Pilates studios. However last night and also today, there has been further clarification on this from our professional associations – the Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA) and the Australian Pilates Method Association (APMA).
After nearly 20 years providing Pilates in and around Brisbane’s southside, including 8 years at the current West End studio and 12 years at the Annerley studio, this is undeniably a sad day. In saying that, we obviously fully support any preventative measures the Government are implementing in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our community and country. Body Organics’ motto after all is ‘take your health to a better place’.
We are thinking of this as a pausing of Pilates classes ‘for now’, and fully intend to do everything possible to be able to open our doors and welcome back clients and teachers at a time hopefully not too far down the track!
Above all else, take care of yourselves and your loved ones (from an appropriate distance).
