About our Postnatal Pilates
Learn how to exercise safely after childbirth and help your body regain its pre-pregnancy figure by safely exercising your core and pelvic floor muscles, back, arms and legs with our Postnatal Physio-Pilates Classes.
Our classes cater for Vaginal or Cesarean birth and all exercises are progressive and respecting your postnatal stage and your body’s ability. You must attend our 3 hour Workshop before enrolling in our Postnatal Phyiolates Programme. The basic posture to safely exercise during our classes is explained to you in this workshop together with the all so important Pelvic Floor muscles. Each Postnatal Pilates Class is 55m in duration and includes Clinical Pilates Exercises adapted to your postnatal period. Programme includeS small equipment and some of the classes will also include cardio exercises.
The Postnatal Pilates programme also includes:
- Core Postnatal Exercises
- Postural Postnatal Exercises
- Pelvic Floor Postnatal Exercises
- Flexibility Postnatal Exercises
The Postnatal Pilates Workshop is very important, as Deborah our Chartered Physiotherapist in Women’s Health, will conduct a Postural assessment, check the separation of your abdominal muscles (Diastasis Recti) and teach how to exercise safely during the remaining of the Pilates classes.
