Pregnancy Pilates can help retrain your muscles to accommodate to the changes your body is undergoing throughout your pregnancy. Many women find that Pilates helps some of the common ailments associated with pregnancy. Among the most common of these are back and pelvic pain. It is a safe and effective way to strengthen the core muscles, including the pelvic floor. The first trimester of pregnancy is a sensitive time as women adapt to their pregnancy. For this reason, we recommend that women attend Prenatal Pilates classes in the second or third trimester of pregnancy (after 12 weeks).
Our classes are provided by our colleagues at Yoga Mama Wellness, who specialise in Pregnancy Pilates. We keep our classes small deliberately, with an average of 6-12 students per class. This allows our team of highly qualified and experienced teachers to provide students with individual attention and support within the class, while also promoting a sense of community.
We are currently not running any online group Prenatal Pilates classes. However, 1:1 sessions are available upon request. See below for more details.
At this time, we are unable to take online bookings for private classes with Yoga Mama Wellness. If you would like to book a 1:1 session, please call us on 07939 589 083 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Yoga Mama Wellnes offer single sessions and block bookings of 5 and 10 sessions. There is a 10% discount on blocks of 10 sessions. For prices, visit the Yoga Mama Wellness Timetable and Prices page.
We offer single sessions and class passes for our online classes. At present we are unable to take class bookings or accept cash payments at our reception. Therefore, students must make all bookings and payments via the Yoga Mama Wellness online booking system. Enrolment closes 60 minutes before classes are due to commence, so we urge you to book early to avoid disappointment. Should you require any further information, please send an email to email@example.com or call 07939 589 083.
Enrolment for online classes closes 60 minutes before the class start time, so book early to avoid disappointment. Please note, online class bookings are not valid on our in-studio classes.
When booking your class, you will receive a confirmation email which includes the ZOOM meeting link for your class. Join the ‘meeting’ 5 minutes or so before the class starts with your audio and video switched on so that the teacher can say hello. You can then go off and do other things or get settled before the class starts.
Our online classes are powered by ZOOM. In order to join a class, download the latest version of Zoom. We recommend leaving plenty of time for this so as to avoid any last minute hitches before your class starts.
Please ensure your device is charged sufficiently for the duration of the class (60 minutes).
ATTENDING THE STUDIO
We have reduced our in studio class capacity to 6 in order to allow correct (1m+) social distancing. We kindly request students follow the guidelines below.
Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled class and use a face covering in all communal areas. You can remove this once inside the studio. Remember to wash your hands or use sanitising gel before entering the studio. Prior to the entering the studio, we provide pre-class temperature screenings.
Mat spaces will be marked out to help you stay physically distanced. Please bring your own mat and any props you wish to use, as we are unable to provide mats or props at present. We do have some mats and props on sale if needed.
Teachers will not be offering hands-on adjustments for the time being. Finally, we ask you keep personal belongings to a minimum.
