Pilates and Yoga November to Christmas 2021

By | Blog | No Comments

Hi there,

hope you had a happy (windy and wet) Halloween and I thought I’d just write a quick note about forthcoming classes.

So tonight those of you booked on my Monday Fusion and Pilates classes at High Storrs school will be back for a new course, which lasts until the middle of December (13th) after which we’ll take a break for Christmas. If you have booked on my Wednesday Pilates and Yoga classes, the new set of classes commences on November 10th through til December 15th. If you fancy joining us, there’s a few spaces left in the Wednesday yoga class 7-7.55pm so do get in touch: [email protected]

My online yoga class continues every week Thursdays 6.30-7.30pm. You can join in this class on an adhoc basis or request a class recording anytime. It’s a lovely laidback class where you can do as much or as little as you like, aimed at making you feel good and reduce stress and muscular tension. If you’re new to yoga it’s worth emailing me first to discuss any health conditions.

My online pilates class is Fridays 11-12pm but unfortunately has been postponed for this week and it’s now looking like next week too, due to building work at our house. I am having my basement converted into a small yoga space to offer one-to-ones so it’s exciting but disruptive right now! I will keep you updated about when we can get back to our normal routine.

Keep warm and bright, look forward to seeing you soon face-to-face or online!


Autumn Timetable

New Autumn Timetable 2021

From September 6th, there will be more face-to-face classes on offer at High Storrs School in Sheffield (S11, Bents Green )but still a weekly zoom class for both pilates and yoga (note the change of day/time for pilates from 6th September). So hopefully, if you are a regular client of mine you will find the right class for you. Beginners and experienced newcomers are welcome, as I offer variations, adaptations and different levels of difficulty within each class. If you are not sure which class would suit you please just email me and we can have a chat about it.

The face-to-face classes will continue to be available in short blocks booked in advance. This is so that I can ensure limited group sizes of a maximum of 12 people, in order to provide as safe an environment as possible. The room will be ventilated so please wear warm layers! We will be continuing with our covid-safe routine for as long as it feels sensible to do so.

There’s still the option to drop in to a zoom pilates or yoga class on a regular or ad hoc basis for just £7/6 concessions, or pop a quick email to me and I’ll send you a class recording for just £5.

Free Cardio Class Recording

By | Blog | No Comments

I am continuing to offer pilates and yoga classes online twice a week. You can also purchase a class recording of either on an ad hoc or weekly basis for the same price as the live zoom classes (£7/6).

In addition to pilates and yoga, I have teamed together with my old friend and fitness pal Sarah Frost to offer any of my regular pilates and yoga clients the opportunity to claim a free cardio workout! Check out this zoom chat introducing Sarah and this unique offer:

Sarah teaches her own unique blend of fun cardio fitness workouts called XO ciZe. She’s based over in Manchester, and now of course bringing all her enthusiasm and passion to offering online classes too. Sarah and I go back a long way (we were close friends in primary school!) so I am more than happy to recommend her as a teacher. Together we are offering a FREE recording of our classes to each other’s clientele. This enables us to offer you that little something extra in terms of challenge and variety. We’re also hoping it will go a little way towards lifting your spirits during this latest lockdown period when some forms of exercise at this time of year might feel more limited. If you want to try one of Sarah’s classes simply email her at [email protected] and mention ‘Leonie’s Yoga Pilates’. You will then get a link to a FREE cardio XO ciZe class. If you enjoy, then you may choose to do an online class with Sarah at some point during lockdown. Here is Sarah’s website: and

Online pilates and yoga classes

Hi there,

I have two online classes a week which are suitable for anyone who has attended my classes in the past, either in Manchester or Sheffield and who is familiar with my style of teaching and knows how to adapt their own practice to suit their needs.

Pilates is on Mondays 6.30-7.30pm

Yoga is on Thursdays 6.30-7.30pm

Prices are the same as before, £7/6 students and pensioners, but I am also offering these classes either free or by small donation for anyone who is financially struggling under the present circumstances.

Thanks very much,

Hi there,

I want to respond quickly to the latest government advice regarding the coronavirus and the recommendation to avoid all non essential social contact. So unfortunately I am temporarily postponing all classes until circumstances improve.

Thanks very much and take care of yourselves.

Summer 2019 Class Timetable amendments

By | Blog | No Comments

There will be a couple of tweaks to the Sheffield pilates and yoga timetable this July and August (2019):

Pilates at High Storrs School S11 will be running on Mondays at 6.45pm except for Monday July 1st and on Wednesdays 6.45pm up until the summer holidays except for Wednesday July 10th. The last Wednesday class before the summer holidays is 17th July and the Wednesday evening class will then take a break until Autumn term which begins September 4th. The Monday evening pilates class will continue throughout the summer holidays so plenty of opportunities for keeping up your exercise routine.

Yoga at Union St will also continue throughout summer. My friend Rachael Goodall will be covering my yoga classes in the first two weeks of July. Please note, Rachael can take cash payments and class passes but won’t be able to take card payments. Rachael is trained in both hatha yoga and yin yoga and has a lovely gentle style.

Hope to see you soon!



Class times this week and next, plus a new evening class in May!

By | Blog | No Comments

Hi there,

There will be a few slight changes to the timetable this week and next.

This week, I am teaching yoga at Union St tonight (Tuesday 26th March) but unfortunately I have to attend a funeral on Thursday 28th so there won’t be a class then.

Next week, there will be no Monday evening pilates class at High Storrs school (1st April) to coincide with the new Easter school holiday times. However, the school has agreed we can still meet for pilates on Monday April 8th!

If you have been attending High Storrs pilates class you will have undoubtedly noticed that the class numbers have been growing! So, I am going to start a second pilates class from May on a Wednesday at the same time, 6.45-7.45pm. This class will run term time only and will take place in the activity studio (same room as Monday class). Please do let any interested friends or family members know about this class! And if you fancy trying two classes a week, remember you can buy a ten class pass from me to make it that bit more value for money.

Thanks and hope to see you at a class very soon,
