If you have been cleared for exercise by your health care provider and are ready to leave the house with your baby, we offer a new Postnatal Mat class which will help you get your pre-baby body back. The classes target posture, pelvic floor, and full body reconditioning. Babies up to eight months are welcome.
Classes will have up to eight mums and babies in.
The sessions take place in a relaxed atmosphere where it is expected you will show your baby attention during the session.

To get the most from your Pilates exercise class it is important to understand the Pilates Principles and perform the exercises correctly.
In this, Anne will identify your abnormal movement patterns and muscle imbalance and select the most beneficial Pilates exercises for you .

Anne will introduce you to the Pilates Principles and teach you the correct method to activate your core muscles so that you can safely progress and gain the strength and control you had before the birth.
