There are a few changes and it is still subject to change but this is the timetable for September-December!

Everything is ready to be booked, and we will be posting about each of the workshops soon although they can all be booked already.

If you have any questions please just drop us a message! ❤️


That's that for classes now until the 2nd of September! The instructors have a couple of weeks off now to get ready for a new start! 🧘‍♀️💃💪

Thank you to all of our incredible people and we will see you in a couple of weeks!

Note: classes are not running but please do keep booking into classes and if you have any questions or need help please do contact us by message or on the GymCatch app or by email to: [email protected]

Please do give us AT LEAST 48 hours to reply as we are all enjoying our summer holiday too :D

We will be posting about the new timetable and upcoming workshops etc over the next couple of weeks too!


Limited timetable this coming week, then we are closed for 2 weeks before re-opening in September with the new booking system and some timetable changes. There should be a suitable time on there for you but it may not be your usual class time.

We have a few announcements to make about the booking system, pricing structure and timetable - there’s loads of information but we are just going to summarise the main points here for a briefer read! To read the full info please visit:


We are making the switch to GymCatch from classes on the 2nd of September. Link to the new system is here:
Julie’s Pilates and Aerial Pilates are moving to her own system.

GymCatch has an app and uses Stripe, like TeamUp. You can also have children’s accounts as sub profiles under a parent account. The app allows you to contact us directly there too.

The cancellation period is staying at 12hrs - classes cancelled within this time, and no-shows will forfeit the class fee/membership. This *may* be increased to 24hrs in the future. (Workshops and private lessons have a 24 hour cancellation period.)

Recently purchased memberships will be transferred to the new system. Some people have old unused memberships and credit on their account which will not be transferred but we DO have the records to apply these credits to use on classes if you would like. Please check your teamup account before the 20th August. This also applies to people who had to stop mid-course due to COVID and haven’t been back yet!


On GymCatch there will be the option to book single classes but also buy bundles of classes (like the class packs we’ve had) and we are finally in a position to bring back the monthly membership options from pre-COVID times! Do check the Ts and Cs of all memberships/classes when you book.

We’ve not had a price increase on pole/aerial classes in over 5 years, but we are now having to increase the cost of the PAYG sessions to £12 - HOWEVER we have taken a range of measures to try to make sure this doesn’t impact our regular students. The new membership option gives you similar value classes (and better!) as the class passes we have had on teamup. Essentially you can choose how often you are coming to class (or would like to) and go with that membership, and it runs for 3 months, giving you pole and aerial classes for £9 each, or less.
Fitness classes, private classes, circus and youth hoop has NOT been impacted.

Check out all of the options on our blog post or on GymCatch.


There are a range of changes, here are some key points:
Youth hoop times are changing slightly - do check dates & times when booking!
Saturday afternoons will now be workshops by various instructors and practice sessions. These workshops give you an opportunity to work on something specific, they will be a variety of ages, styles and abilities.
All adult classes that are NOT beginners or advanced, are now mixed ability. This is to give you maximum flexibility on which classes you feel you can attend.


That’s the end of our announcements but do check out the blog post for more details!

All of the instructors are still finding their feet and getting used to using the new system so please be patient if there is an issue! If you need any help or have any questions please DM us on here or email us on [email protected].

Wondering about our valentines workshop?

Here are a few of your questions answered!

💋 This workshop is just for you, you don't need to bring a partner or be in a relationship to enjoy learning some floorwork!

♥️ Wear what makes you feel confident and sexy! You can wear as much or as little as you want!

😜 You don't have to already be good at being sexy or have any specific dance experience! We will teach you!

🔥 The routine is a bit bo***ge themed and includes props! Nothing scary though, we promise!

💦 This is a zero judgement zone, and a bit of fun! No need to be nervous!

🌹 The workshop is at 5, which is early enough that you can still get your valentines evening plans in 😉

If you have any more questions please just comment or email us and we will get back to you 💌
