Women’s Health Pilates

Women’s Health Pilates at the Greenwich Pilates Studio

The Greenwich Pilates Studio has been working with women over the past 13 years and feel there is a demand and a need for a women’s only specialised Pilates class.

Why is this?

  • One in three women experiences bladder or bowel control problems at some time
  • Up to 15% of women suffer from internal pain
  • One in four women have pelvic organ prolapse
  • An increasing number of women have a Diastasis recti. This is where the stomach sticks out because the space between your left and right belly muscles has widened. When the abdominal muscles move aside like this, the uterus, bowels, and other organs have only a thin band of connective tissue in front to hold them in place. The condition also can cause lower back pain, constipation, and urine leaking. It can even make it harder to breathe and to move normally. It’s rare, but in extreme cases, the tissue may tear, and organs may poke out of the opening — that’s called a hernia.

While these conditions are very common, they are not normal and are not necessarily to do with pregnancy or childbirth. Incontinence or pain can occur from childhood to our older years
