########

Our small classes of a maximum of 8/12 are taken in the comfort of the Market Studios, Durnford Street, Greenwich Market and Studio 225, 225 Greenwich High Road.  Please check which studio you are booked into before attending the class.

These classes taken by Ellie Brown, Ruth Tongue, Lucy Swann and Chiara Favaretti who are all  pre and postnatal specialist Pilates teachers, require no prior experience.

You can safely begin an exercise program during pregnancy after consulting with your health care provider, but do not try a new, strenuous activity. We advise to be cautious during the first 12 weeks (first trimester). Our  classes are gentle and follow all the guidelines and taught by pre and postnatal specialists.

Pregnancy Pilates will help;

  •  Strengthen your core muscles, which equips your body better to cope with the strains caused by the weight of your growing baby. Hormones make the tissues (ligaments) that connect your bones more pliable in pregnancy, making you more prone to injury.
  • Pevlic Girdle Pain (PGP) & Sciatica
  • Reduces back pain, by exercising the deepest tummy muscles that stabilise your back and pelvis. Weak muscles can lead to back or pelvic pain.
    • Strengthen your pelvic floor, which will help to support your bowel, bladder and uterus (womb) as your baby grows and moves down.
    • Helps with balance, as you may feel a little more clumsy, or that your balance isn’t as good as usual, in pregnancy. Pilates exercises strengthen your core and may make you more stable when you walk as your bump grows.
    • Takes the strain off your back and pelvis, by using positions such as going on your hands and knees, which is a great position for pregnancy. Towards the end of your pregnancy, it may also help to get your baby into the right position for birth.
    • Relax and control your breathing, which is important for pregnancy and labour.We supply all the mats, blankets for relaxation and equipment you will need.A reminder that we also have Pregnancy Yoga classes and Pregnancy Reformer Both these classes can be booked using your bundle of classes.If you have any concerns it is advisable to discuss these with your doctor or midwife before taking up Pilates or you can contact us directly with any questions. email
