Are you a mum who needs more support with your body? Then you need Pilates !

Updated: Oct 31, 2022



Getting back to exercise after having a baby can be daunting especially if you don't know where to start, looking after a baby can be stressful, and finding the time to prioritise your recovery is challenging.


So let me guide you safely through a holistic recovery, education and exercise plan using the power of Pilates to leave you feeling empowered, strong, and capable of dealing with anything parenthood throws your way.


We will work on;


Alignment: This one can be tough in those early postpartum days, but poor alignment increases the stress on your core muscles, thereby slowing your recovery. One tip that can dramatically improve your healing is to focus on you alignment during your everyday movements and while seated (especially given how much time you spend in this position feeding your baby).


Breathing: We will work on our 3D breathing. This is the first, and most important, core recovery exercise. It will not only help you strengthen your critical deep core muscles, but it also helps to support your healing by activating your body’s parasympathetic nervous system (the “rest and digest” system). We will practice this exercise on its own and then practice incorporating it into your movements by focusing on exhaling on the effort.


Gentle pelvic floor activations: The impact on your your abdominal muscles impacts your pelvic floor as well. Resuming (or beginning) gentle pelvic floor activations will help to helps increase circulation in the area.


Mobility Work: Reconnect with your body and recover from child birth. We will begin to move your pelvic hip region and the sides of the body. We will begin to build strength and flexibility in all the areas that you need to support everyday life as a mum.


Manage Diastasis Recti & Prolapse Understand these issues, and how to exercise safely and effectively with them, without fear.


Reduce those aches and pains Parenting can be highly demanding on the body. Strengthening and balancing the body can help reduce your chances of pain and give your body more support.


Relaxation: What new mum doesn't need to relax. We will work on relaxation techniques that include a 5/10 minute practice but will leaving you feeling more ready to take on the day or night.....
