PART 5 : Important Information(To be done by hand)
Please advise us before commencing any session if, for any reason, your health or your ability to exercise changes.
It is inadvisable to do Pilates between weeks 8 to 14 of pregnancy, unless by special arrangement with you teacher. It is also wise to wait six weeks after birth before resuming exercise.
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 these exercises, you should refer back to your medical practitioner. The teacher 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.
- you fail to observe instructions on safety or technique.
- such injury is caused by th negligence of another participant in the class/studio.
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 your teacher immediatley if you any discomfort during a session. Please also inform the teacher if you felt any discomfort after a previous session.
I understand that these exercises involve hands-on correction and I hereby consent for my teachers to work in this way.
