As part of our commitment to paying back to our global community Proper Pilates organises an in house charity drive every quarter. Each event consists of a workshop aimed at deepening our clients knowledge of the Contrology system, and donations are collected from participants for entry. Further to this, we are committed to continual monthly sponsorship of the World Animal Protection organisation.
As well as selecting organisations ourselves, we look for suggestions from clients for charitable causes, with a directive of reaching organisations that address welfare needs locally and internationally, and/or work with respect to animals, women's and LGBTIQA+ issues. All organisations must be secular.
To register a charity nomination please contact our admin team directly.
We will also take donations from anyone wishing to contribute. If you would like to make a donation please contact the studio to pay via credit card over the phone. Alternatively, go directly to the associated website of the charity listed below that you'd like to support, and follow their directions for making a donation.
