Last month Lisa Ives (Director of EHT) teamed up with Pam Steele (Pure Pilates) to present a workshop combination that was
completely new and exciting in the Basingstoke and North Hampshire district.
Our aim was to bring an innovative and synergistic workshop combining Pilates (mat/equipment)/Yoga/Tai Chi and introduce a
new component 'applied osteopathy' which looked at posture and strain patterns. We sought to enhance our ladies & gents
overall class experience, as well as go some way to help them understand the 'whys & how's' of what we're striving towards
in the practical execution phase of our classes.
