Pilates Place is Nominated Award Finalists
On Friday 1 February 2013, Stratford upon Avon District will come together at the Holiday Inn, Stratford to celebrate the best achievements in business and the community on one truly glittering night - the second annual Pride of Stratford Awards.
In the presence of the ‘who’s who’ of Stratford upon Avon, we will be awarding our prestigious swan awards to the best business, individuals and organisations. The Pilates Place is just one of 3 nominated finalists in the small business of the year category.
Director of the Pilates Place said ‘it’s an honour and a privilege to be nominated for the Pride of Stratford Award and testament to all our hard working Pilates instructors, at our Shipston and Stratford studios. I think this award recognises the Pilates Place as a dynamic young company that is still growing and still going places.
The Pilates Place is the inspiration of Peta Davies an ex-ballet dancer and unlikely contender for an award such as this. Peta started with no business experience at all, just the desire to do something with her teaching and physical expertise. Unaware of where it might take her.
That dream started with a small studio in Shipston on Stour and expanded to a second one in Stratford in 2010.
Both studios offer instruction on large pieces of Pilates exercise equipment known as Cadillac, Reformer, Combo Chair and Ladder Barrel. These pieces of equipment cater for anyone interested in physical well-being and are particularly good for people recovering from injury, operations or illness.
The studios are open all week and offer an alternative to the gym experience. Each client is assessed individually so that a programme of exercise can be designed specifically for them. Every time they visit the studio they are supported by a fully qualified Pilates Instructor to get the most from their workout.
The Studios employ 7 part-time instructors across the 2 studios providing over 70 hours of Pilates instruction to over 300 participants per week.
Instructors from the Pilate spLace are looking forward to the special celebration dinner on 1 February when the winner of Small Business Awards will be announced.
