PLEASE NOTE I WILL BE ON MATERNITY LEAVE FROM EASTER 2016 UNTIL OCT 2016 BUT THE BELOW CLASSES HAVE BEEN COVERED AND SO PLEASE DO FEEL FREE TO ATTEND OVER THE SUMMER.

I am a fully qualified, Level 3 trained and insured Pilates instructor, with over 9 years of experience. I love teaching Pilates as it is such an effective, envigorating and rehabilitative exercise. I teach mainly mat-based classes, one to ones, Postnatal and antenatal Pilates, however i also use small equipment such as Medicine balls, swiss balls, foam roller, resistance bands and pilates circle.
Pilates increases your strength (mainly Throughout your core - your stomach and your back) your muscle tone, your flexibility and your concentration and relaxation levels. It is mainly mat-based and can help in rehabilitation of many back problems/injuries.

Group Classes

Pilates classes all levels welcome

Pilates is a great, effective exercise that strengthens your core - tummy and back - lengthens your muscles, tones, relaxes, focuses the mind and improves flexibility.

It is mainly mat-based and the mats are provided.

It is great for rehabilitation (doctors notes may be required)or new exercisers and is a good mix of strengthening and relaxing. It is also a great form of exercise to add to an existing exercise programme.

Drop in and see how you like it.. i'm sure you wont be disappointed.

THE SMALL PRINT

Limited Mats provided at St Edwards and Hope Baptist so please bring one if you have one. All levels welcome. Any injuries/skeletal or muscular problems must be stated to the instructor to allow her to assess and tailor the exercises appropriately, alternatively please bring a doctors note. Also contact me prior to attending the classes if you are pregnant or have recently given birth.
Bring yourself, a bottle of water, a small towel and wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes.

Please see below for a few key benefits of Pilates during pregnancy:

*Keeps Mother calm and in a positive state of mind
*Helps to understand and manage the changes in the body
*Promotes improvement in posture and body awareness
*Improves core stability ( through the back, pelvis, shoulders, and neck)
*Improves co-ordination and balance
*Prepares the body for demands of increased weight bearing and circulation.
*Maintains abdominal function
*Helps prevent back pain and other problems caused by weakness and joint instability
*Gets you fit for labour and delivery
*Enables you to retain control over the body
*Strengthens relevant muscles for birthing positions (all 4 kneeling, squatting etc.)
*Improves relaxation skills for comfort during labour and pregnancy
*Improves awareness of breath control and Pelvic floor control
*Prepares pelvic floor for extra weight and demands
*Prepares upper body for demands of baby care and breast-feeding.
*Lays foundations for you to regain your figure after child-birth
*It's Fun!!!

POSTNATAL Pilates benefits:
There are enormous benefits of doing Pilates postnatally, even if it is just one class per week, which is realistically is all that new mums can manage. The postnatal period is very important time for a new mother's health where the body continues to be vulnerable due to hormonal changes that have occurred during pregnancy and continue to have an effect on the body and mind.

This Postnatal Pilates Class focuses on a new mum's journey back to her pre-pregnancy body in a safe and sensible way. Each mum is different and each birth is different, therefore we will spend a little time in the first session assessing your requirements and your abdominal integrity (whether these muscles have separated and if so by how much). Our focus during the class continues to be correct postural alignment, breathing and engagement of deep stabilising muscles (Pelvic Floor and Transversus Abdominals) prior to movement. Postnatal Pilates is designed to strengthen, repair and realign after birth, working ‘inside out’.
