Pilates exercises are very safe but, as with all forms of physical exercise, it is prudent to consult your doctor before starting Pilates sessions. These sessions are not a substitute for medical counselling or treatment. If you have any doubts about the suitability of the exercises, you should refer back to your medical practitioner.
The teacher (Trudy) can accept no liability for personal injury related to participation in a session if: Your doctor has, on health grounds, advised you against such exercise or You fail to observe instructions on safety or technique.
Exercise should be performed at a pace which feels comfortable for you. Pain is the body’s warning system and should not be ignored. Please inform Trudy immediately if you feel any discomfort during a session. Please also inform Trudy if you felt any discomfort after a previous session.
Body Control Pilates in person sessions usually involve hands-on corrections. By taking part in an online Pilates session, you fully understand that your teacher is not able to offer any hands-on correction;
you agree to take responsibility for your own body;
you agree not to perform any exercises or movements that may cause you discomfort;
and you confirm that you are fit and able to join the class.
You must ensure that you are working in a safe environment and that you are able to clearly see and/or hear your teacher in order to follow instructions.
It is your responsibility to let the teacher know before the class if anything affects your ability to exercise that day. By joining the class, you automatically agree to waive all statutory rights against your teacher
Please advise Trudy before commencing any session if, for any reason, your health or your ability to exercise changes. Especially if you develop any of the following medical conditions: osteoporosis, osteopenia, low back pain or pregnancy.
