Pilates for new mothers

An hour long class with the focus on you! Getting you back to your pre-baby self.

The class is modified to focus on specific aspects of strengthening which combat the effects of pregnancy, breast- feeding and childcare. Our women’s health physiotherapist leads the class, using her medical and Pilates knowledge to create a regime of post natal flexibility, strength and endurance. We are happy for you to bring your little one along, however we don’t involve them as this is pure ‘you time’ to achieve your goals and get the most out of your class.

The back fitness group

There is a great deal of evidence that regular exercise controls back pain, even severe problems; but so often people are unsure of how to get started or whether they are doing the right kind of exercise. The back fitness group meets once a week for an hour’s class. Each participant is individually assessed in the clinic before commencing a six week course. In this way the physiotherapist who leads the class has an understanding of each participant’s back problems and what sort of exercises will benefit them. A home programme is devised for each person so that exercises can continue through the week and progress can be monitored over the six week course.

The class is friendly and informal, no lycra required! People who have joined the class in the past have been really positive about the benefits it provides. It restores your confidence in your back, shows you that its OK to get moving again and how much better you can feel once you get your muscles working for you.
