The classes are designed to work for any level. There is some traditional elements, but mostly it’s all about moving well and learning your body. I will layer up the exercises, starting at level 1, then I will give more ad-vanced variations or modifications where desired. There is always some part of the posture or exercise that will work for you, then we build from there.
I believe it’s important to understand why you’re doing a pose or exercise and get the quality of movement right. I will openly discuss any questions that you have. If you’re not getting it, you can be sure someone else isn’t either.
If you’d like a 1-2-1 before joining a group, I’m more than happy to provide this.
Pregnancy Pilates is designed to focus on overall stability and core strength to help you cope with the physical changes happening as your baby grows, and the aches and pains you might experience during pregnancy. It will also help with recovery post birth.
It is suitable for any stage of pregnancy and you can join even if you’ve never done Pilates before. The class will only offer pregnancy safe exercises with modifications and adaptations for the trimester that you’re in, and/or your ability level.
I recommended that you bring an exercise ball. They come in different sizes according to your height. You will likely want one of these during the last few weeks of pregnancy for use at home. If you don’t already have one please see the link below for an idea of what to buy. Check the size chart for your correct size.
Post-natal Pilates is designed to help your body recover from pregnancy and birth. The classes are suitable from 6 weeks after giving birth, so long as you’ve had the ok from your postnatal check-up. The exercises are gentle and safe, specific to postpartum mothers (even if little one is older). If you have any concerns please call me and we can go over any questions you have.
- Class schedule TBC. Hoping to resume face to face after 17th May 2021.
