  • Pregnancy Pilates 6.30 – 7.20pm – A class where the Pilates exercises have been specifically adapted to be safe for a woman’s body during pregnancy; allowing you to nurture your body with gentle movement, strength and relaxation while your pregnancy progresses. This class helps to ease symptoms of pregnancy, prepare the muscles for birth, aid quick recovery post pregnancy, reduce strain on the lower back, strengthen pelvic floor muscles and aid relaxation. It’s also a chance to take some time for yourself, connect to your baby and meet other local mums-to-be. Suitable for ladies from 12 weeks through to full term.
  • Mat class 7.30 – 8.20pm – Pilates mat classes work the entire body through a series of repetitive exercises. In some classes small equipment such as resistance bands or balls will be incorporated into the class. When practised consistently, Pilates will help improve your strength, coordination and mobility. It will help you move more efficiently and freely in everything you do – from training for a marathon, to practising yoga or simply keeping up with the kids. Suitable for all levels
