As a new mum, it can be really tough to make time for yourself. In these friendly and relaxed online classes, you’ll get personalised advice on a safe and effective way to gain strength and move better – all from the comfort of your own home.
“This has been such a positive experience for me compared to last time, I’m so grateful that you found space for me in your classes!” Jo M
This is not a standard ‘online workout’. Combining myofascial release techniques and restorative movement with more traditional strengthening exercises, these classes are a perfect programme for your postnatal recovery. One client told us these online classes are “the highlight of my week”!
We’ll thoroughly screen you before you start so we can really get to know you and understand what you hope to achieve from the sessions. We’ll plan the group classes to respond to your individual needs through this period of transition, all while challenging you and providing support.
We have years of experience in supporting new mums with a range of postnatal conditions including abdominal separation (diastasis recti), pelvic floor dysfunction, sacroiliac problems, pelvic girdle pain, pelvic organ prolapse and back pain.
Pilates for New Mums is for you if:
If you had any specific problems postnatally it might be best for you to start with some private Zoom classes before moving into a group situation. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to discuss your particular needs. You can find more information about one-to-one sessions here. You may also be interested in our Centred Postnatal Recovery online course.
The Pilates for New Mums online course bundle includes:
Your investment is £99 for all of this invaluable learning and support.
If you’re new to the classes you may also need to buy our equipment bundle for £25 (if you don’t already own this equipment), including an overball, spiky massage ball, fascial release ball and theraband.
Wednesdays at 10 am (online)
What should I wear? Anything that you feel comfortable in! As long as you can move easily it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing. Sometimes it is worth wearing layers as you might warm up throughout the class!
How many people will be in the class? We book a maximum of ten mums onto these classes to make sure you get plenty of individual tuition.
Do I have to sign up to a block of classes? We believe block bookings are the best way to ensure you really see the benefit of the sessions, so we only book this way. We don’t take drop-ins because we want to screen you fully before you start so we can get to know your body and make sure that you get the most out of the classes. If you miss a class there may be a chance to make it up at another one of our classes within the same block – just let us know with at least a week’s notice and we’ll do our best to fit you into another class on the timetable.
What will I need? An exercise mat and some water, as well as an overball, spiky massage ball, fascial release ball and theraband (you can buy these through us when you book if you don’t already own them).
Can I bring my baby? Yes, babies are very welcome but this isn’t a class for babies – it’s all about you. You’re welcome to get childcare and enjoy the class alone if you prefer, or if you have your baby with you, you’ll be responsible for them throughout the class and they shouldn’t be involved in any of the exercises.
“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.”
“Grace and her classes are amazing! After my second baby the gap between my stomach muscles were 5 fingers wide. With her help and her great classes, I managed to restore my core strength and closed the gap completely!”
“Grace has a wonderful manner and knows so much about how pregnancy affects our bodies. As well as targeting my core and helping my baby related back issues, her classes are fun and friendly.”
