Moira attended a masterclass in London in October at the APPI Headquarters – she dutifully attended with pen and paper expecting there to be some theory/classes when she realised that it was all practical!  Feeling the effects of the considerable hours of Pilates exercises the next day, she reflected that it was an excellent Pilates teacher training day and came away with some new ideas for her next set of classes – watch out for these, St Judes’ clients!

St Judes staff held an advice stand at Morrisons Supermarket in Leighton Buzzard on Wednesday 18th October where they offered trips and falls prevention advice and free walking stick and footwear checks and recommendations.   

Did you know that in the UK one third of those aged 65 and over will have a fall which equates to more than 3 million falls a year and half of those will fall again within the next 12 months?  Falls are the leading cause of serious ill health, leading to hospitalisation and death in the over 75’s and account for 95% of all hip fractures costing the NHS £1 billion a year!  By taking some simple steps now we can help to prevent accidents from trips and falls.

Interesting article in The Times about the benefits of Pilates rather than painkillers for bad backs following the NICE recommendations:


“"Patients with back pain should consider an exercise programme to help them manage their condition, eg aerobic exercises, strengthening/stretching exercises, pilates, yoga, core-stability exercises.
Being overweight and physical inactivity are two causes of back pain that we can all do something about. Eating a good diet, moving our muscles more and raising our heart rate all help to prevent musculoskeletal problems.
Try physiotherapy, with an exercise programme to mobilise and strengthen your back and core."
