Alderley Pilates celebrates 15 years with FREE workshops and special events


Promotional Feature

Alderley Pilates is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the studio with a series of special events between Saturday 9 September 2017 and Sunday 17 September 2017.

A particular highlight is the visit from Lynne Robinson, co-founder and director of Body Control Pilates, also known as the 'Queen of Pilates'. She's recently been seen demonstrating sample exercises in print media such as OK, Hello and the Telegraph, and has been credited for Holly Willoughby's new 'lean and fit' body.

Excitingly, Lynne will be teaching the 1.00pm class at Alderley Pilates on Friday 15 September.

At 2.00pm, you can hear Lynne's talk about the benefits of Pilates.

At 3.30pm, Lynne will be signing her book 'Pilates for Life', and cutting the studio's 15th birthday cake.

Alderley Pilates co-founder, Peter Bowen, comments: "This is probably our biggest set of events, ever! Places are limited so they need to be pre-booked. In particular, Lynne's visit is sure to be popular."

The fun doesn't stop there. From 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Friday 15 September, the Alderley Pilates team will be hosting a FREE fashion show at Sweaty Betty in Water Lane, Wilmslow, including a prize draw in aid of Cancer UK, glass of fizz, nibbles and a goody bag for all attendees.

There will also be a special programme of taster sessions and FREE beginners' workshops during their Celebration Week.
