Pilates

A new exercise programme for pregnant women and new mums 

Antenatal and postnatal Pilates classes can help you cope better with the aches and pains of pregnancy, improve your posture and get you back into shape after the birth of your baby.

Pilates instructor Caroline Reid, who will be running our classes said: “As a mother of three young children I have experienced first-hand the benefits of practicing Pilates. I believe that there’s no better way to strengthen your body to cope with the additional weight of pregnancy and prepare your body for labour. It’s also a safe way to heal the abdominal muscles post birth, tone up, and repair the pelvic floor.”

Please enquire with Caroline (contact details at the bottom of the page) for availablility and course dates.
