Walnut Grove Clinic is fully open and will remain so throughout any lockdown as essential healthcare. Public Health England are keen that practices like WG remain open to help relieve additional pressure on the NHS. The Treatment room at the studio is also open. The studio is also open for face to face classes but we are also running some online classes for those who wish to train at home.

BOOKING A TREATMENT - IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19, NEW COUGH, TEMPERATURE, LOSS OF TASTE OR SMELL - OR HAVE MET ANYONE WHO HAS WITHIN 14 DAYS - PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A TREATMENT AND CANCEL YOUR BOOKING IF YOU SUBSEQUENTLY DEVELOP SYMPTOMS. You may transfer to an online consultation if you feel well enough, please call us to change your appointment.

You MUST wear a mask when you come into the clinic or studio. If you are mask exempt please tell us when you book as some practitioners are unable to see mask exempt patients and we will need to make special provision to keep other patients and staff safe.

Covid Vaccination: Some staff members as well as some patients attending this practice might not be vaccinated due to ineligibility, medical contraindications/ exemptions or personal preference. To keep everyone safe, strict infection prevention control measures are in place and all of our staff will be wearing the appropriate level of PPE. LFD (Lateral Flow) testing is also carried out on all staff at regular intervals. If you have any concerns, please us know.

The track and trace system is run by the government to manage contacts of people who have tested positive with covid-19 and we wish to make you aware that we have a legal requirement to release your basic contact details (name, address, email and phone number) if required by a government contact tracer. This overrides the GDPR requirement.

It places emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong/coordinated core, and improving coordination and balance.

Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It places emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong/coordinated core, and improving coordination and balance.

The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, lower back, and hips, is often called the “powerhouse” and is thought to be the key to a person’s stability. These muscles must be worked in a functional way and not in isolation.

The Pilates system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
We run a range of classes from Physio led seated and mat classes (see Clinical Pilates), through to low level mat to advanced level mat classes. We also offer machine based pilates and 1-1 sessions in our studio here at WG.
