Prenatal & Postnatal Pilates
Pregnancy is an amazing journey, and your body goes through a lot of physiological changes. This does not mean pregnancy is the time to give up exercise, however exercise needs to be adapted to keep you and your baby safe, and this is where pregnancy Pilates comes in! Having an active pregnancy is important for physical and mental well-being.
As an Osteopath I am familiar with pregnancy related issues, as well as having a deep understanding of the changes the body goes through to accommodate your growing baby. Whether your baby is born naturally or via caesarean, it is important to allow your body time to recover post birth. While there are some gentle and effective exercises that you can do straight after birth, I usually recommend 8 weeks before coming back to / starting Pilates.
Emily has in depth understanding of the recovery process as well as the physical demands of caring for a new-born.
The benefits of Pilates during pregnancy
The benefits of Pilates after pregnancy
Pilates classes for pre/post natal clients are specially designed by Emily, so you know you are in a safe, controlled environment. Classes are limited to 8 participants, so booking is essential. Before you can start the classes, you must attend a free meeting with Emily to complete medical forms to ensure you are safe to do the classes.
These classes have also proved to be an opportunity for mums to connect with each other, helping form a community network of support and friendship.
Classes are either held at The Fitness Box @ The Manor in Tur Langton or at the Market Harborough Congregational Church.
Classes are held at the following times:
08:00 - 09:00
18:00 - 19:00 & 19:15 - 20:15
Pilates classes will be on Zoom until further notice.
Individual tuition is also available. Please get in touch by phone or email to make arrangements.
Classes cost £12 per class. To avoid disappointment, I request that participants ‘book their mat’ for a 6 week block (total payment for a 6 week block is £72).
If after 2 sessions you decide that Pilates is not for you, you will be refunded for the classes that have not been used. Classes missed for prolonged illness or injury are also refunded (2 or more).
One-to-one classes are also available at £25.
If you think Pilates sounds like something you would like to try or if you have any questions, please get in touch.
