Other care givers are very warmly welcomed too.Have you been feeling like you need to get out of the house with your baby but want time to bond?
This class offers you the chance to get back into shape and not worry about the price of childcare. Whether your baby sleeps in a car seat/lays on a blanket next to you or gets involved in the routine, it is totally up to you. It is also totally fine if you have a toddler wanting to explore. It’s a safe environment and I am on hand to bring them back to you. Pilates will help you get back into shape after giving birth and you don’t have to be an expert, you don’t even have to have done it before. To take part you need to have had at least 6 weeks for a natural birth and 8 weeks for a C section. Come and see what it is all about.
Pilates is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility, strength, and body awareness, without necessarily building bulk. It is the perfect exercise to strengthen the Core and therefore the back. If you have suffered with tight muscles, bad back/neck, limited flexibility, have given birth and want to regain your pelvic floor, then Pilates is something you should certainly try.
