Pilates brings together the mind and body, the enjoyment of movement and a sound anatomical and somatic foundation, producing long lasting results that you will take through the rest of your lives, enjoying and embracing the changes to your body that pregnancy brings. The Centred Mums pregnancy and postnatal programmes are tailored to treat your body gently while maintaining strength and alignment needed for birth and beyond.

Nourish
It is so important to have access to practical and tasty nutrition advice to support you and your baby throughout your pregnancy and postnatal period. The focus is not on your weight but on nourishing your body and mind with good, nutritious, wholesome food that will sustain you throughout the challenges of motherhood. The recipe book is filled with simple, nourishing meals that will help to rebuild your tissues, balance blood sugar to reduce cravings and reduce bloating which can all impact on your healing.

Restore
The combination of restorative Pilates, Postnatal Recovery Massage, myofascial release techniques and nutrition advice will allow your body to work at an optimum level despite the challenges you are facing with the demands of motherhood. We will work together to help you connect with your body in a way you may never have managed even before your children.

Testimonials:

Jo M

“You’ve done a brilliant job of providing a holistic and easily accessible care package for new mums. It has transformed how I feel about myself.”

 

Alex Ball

“Grace has a wealth of postnatal knowledge. She’s very hands on in her classes – checking posture, correcting technique & making sure everyone is feeling the exercise in the right place!”

 

Hannah

“I genuinely believe Grace’s classes kept me fit, healthy and relaxed leading to the best and most natural birth experience I could have ever hoped for, as well as starting life as a mum in a strong position.”

 

Laura Ellis

“I couldn’t be without Grace’s Pilates now and I’m currently enjoying pregnancy Pilates with her. I know that my postnatal body second time round will recover much quicker this time! Don’t hesitate to join her classes, she’s very talented and most other Pilates teachers won’t compare!”

 

Clare C

“Grace was incredibly supportive throughout my pre and postnatal period not only through the Pilates but with general well-being as well. I don’t think I would have felt like ‘normal’ me as quickly as I did without her classes.”
