Our specialist Ante-Natal Pilates classes will help you embrace the changes your body is experiencing at this special time. These classes are specifically designed for expectant mums. The focus is on preparing your body for delivery and the arrival of your new baby, as well as helping your body adapt to the changes it is going through. The classes are tailored depending on the stage of your pregnancy.
Once you've reached your second trimester you can join our classes. They can help with both prevention and relief of many pregnancy related conditions such as pelvic girdle pain, back pain and sciatica.
It's really easy to book a class. Just visit our online Studio Bookings page, sign up, buy your class pass and book into your class. Class passes are £12.50 for a single PAYG class (valid for 1 month), £55 for a 5 class pass (valid for 2 months) and £100 for a 10 class pass (valid for 3 months). You can use your class pass to attend any of our studio classes (excluding Clinical Pilates) so could also come along to our Yoga classes or Mum & Baby Pilates when the time comes!
This way of booking gives you maximum flexibility, so you can choose the times and classes that suit you, without being tied up to a course.
Before your first class, if you could complete this form, that will help Kim find out a little more about your pregnancy history and also any potential issues, so she can tailor the classes accordingly.
When you sign up, you'll get your first class for FREE, so why not come along and give it a try!
I'm suffering with pelvic pain, is it safe for me to do Pilates when I'm pregnant?
Absolutely. The exercises can actually help if you're suffering with pain and will certainly help your recovery afterwards. As the classes are run by a Physio, any individual issues can be addressed as needed. Our antenatal and postnatal classes are led by our Physio & Pilates Instructor, Kim. Kim has a wealth of experience in treating musculoskeletal conditions such as lower back pain, SPD, SIJ dysfunction and postural imbalances related to pregnancy. This ensures you will be provided with expert class instruction in a safe environment, which has been specifically designed to meet the physical demands of a new mum or mum to be.
When can I start the classes?
For ante-natal Pilates we recommend starting once you reach your second trimester. You can feel quite tired and queasy in the first trimester, so exercising isn’t always your top priority. However, if you feel up to it, you can start as soon as you like!
What do I wear?
Wear something loose and comfortable that you can move in. Pilates is done in bare feet, so wear socks if you get cold!
How much are the classes?
You can buy class passes for all of our studio classes. A single class costs £12.50 (1 month expiry), 5 class pass £55 (2 month expiry) or 10 class pass £100 (3 month expiry). Class passes can be used for all our studio classes (with the exeption of Clinical Pilates), including pregnancy Pilates, Mum and baby Pilates, Yoga and Active Backs classes. Take a look here for more information about booking studio classes.
“Starting antenatal pilates at 16 weeks of pregnancy was one of the best investments I have made so far. Not only was Kim friendly and welcoming but everyone who I have met throughout the course of my pregnancy has genuinely taught me something. It's a great start to my Friday evening. I have relished being able to still exercise safely while pregnant or discuss twinges and pains with confidence as well as build friendships with other mums to be which I can see lasting! This is definitely worth making the time for! I cant wait to start post natal pilates!”
