You will have the chance to tell me what you are hoping to achieve from the sessions so that classes are planned to help you fulfil your aims as a group; I will respond to your individual needs, while challenging you and providing support through this period of transition. While I direct and correct, I will also give you space to experiment with what is right for your body. It’s about your class experience, your confidence in your body and, above all, your enjoyment of movement.
In these friendly and relaxed classes, you will meet other Mums and get personalised advice on a safe and effective way to gain strength and move better.
I have 10 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;
- general back pain.
If you have had any specific problems postnatally you might be best to start with some private classes before moving into a group situation.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss your needs. You can find more information about one to one sessions here.

Monday 11am @St Paul’s Church
Thursday 9.45am @The Wellness Bar, Hatfield Road The next courses are fully booked but you can join the waiting list here.
What do I need to wear?
Anything that you feel comfortable in! As long as you can move easily it doesn’t matter what you are wearing. Sometimes it is worth bringing layers as you might warm up throughout the class!
How many people will be in the class?
Mum and baby classes have a maximum of 8 mums booked in so I can make sure you get plenty of individual tuition.
Do I have to sign up to a block of classes?
I only take block bookings because I believe this is the best way to ensure you really see the benefit of the sessions. I don’t take drop ins because I want to fully screen you, 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 my classes within the same block – just let me know with at least a week’s notice and I will do my best to fit you in to another class on the timetable.
What shall I bring?
An exercise mat and some water. You are also welcome to bring things for your baby to play with or to lie on if you like (although the floor is padded with no shoes allowed so it isn’t essential). You also don’t HAVE to have a mat if you’re happy to lie on the padded floor!
Can I bring my baby?
Yes, babies are very welcome but this isn’t a class for babies – it’s all about you and you are welcome to get childcare and come alone if you prefer. Your baby is your responsibility throughout the class and should not be involved in any of the exercises.
Is there parking at the venue?
No but round the corner on Blandford Road there is free parking for 2 hours.
