Pregnancy Pilates - An amazing pre-natal specific class
- Started 21 FebStarted 21 Feb
- From 20 British poundsFrom £20
- Studio E
Suitable for Mums to Be from first trimester to full term (we recommend that you don't leave it later than 32 weeks to start). We work on movements to strengthen the abdominals, pelvic floor, glutes and lower body to help with labour and to keep you strong throughout your pregnancy. As well as releasing tension in the upper body to improve posture and keep you feeling good we focus on breathwork to relax the body and calm the mind - giving you extra tools to assist you in labour. The class includes a standing warm up where we mobilise the upper body to release tension, work on balance and strengthening the lower body, as well as pelvic floor and abdominal strength to support you as your bump grows. We then move onto the mat for the main part of the class where we strengthen the whole body to keep you strong for lifting and carrying your baby and all the paraphernalia that comes with a little one! We sometimes utilise small equipment like a small ball, stretchy band, light weights or a gym ball (particularly as your pregnancy progresses). We'd definitely recommend getting a gym ball if you can but most other items can be substituted with something you already have at home, We then finish the session with some pelvic floor work, stretching of the muscles that can get tight in pregnancy (chest, hips and hamstrings) and a lovely relaxation where we focus on breathing techniques to calm the mind and aid in labour. Not forgetting our post class cuppa, nibble and natter! We love providing a fun, friendly and welcoming space for our mamas to be so our class sizes are limited to 8 to keep that lovely chilled feel.
If you're new to In Balance Pilates please read the details below about how to find us, what to bring, our cancellation policy and to fill in a medical questionnaire before your first session.. Thanks so much! Michelle x How to find us: The class at Studio E is on Princess Avenue, Oakham, LE15 6PQ, it’s just up the road from the hospital in Oakham. If you can’t find it give me a bell (07973 870508) and I’ll direct you! There’s loads of parking around the building so it should be easy to find a space. When you arrive come up the ramp on the side of the building and the class will be in the large studio on the right. There’s loads of storage to place bags/shoes/coats/buggies and a toilet with baby changing facilities just ahead of you on the left. All you need to know about our classes: Classes are very relaxed and friendly and we encourage you to go at your own pace and above all, enjoy! Our Mamas & Minis class is very relaxed so please feel free to cuddle/change nappies/feed as you need to. In class I’ll have a playmat with toys and a baby bouncer if you would like to make use of them. I’m also always up for baby cuddles! What to bring: All you need is to wear comfortable clothing you can move around in easily, and to bring a bottle of water and a mat if you have one. If you don’t, let me know and I’ll have one ready for you. If you're coming to a Mamas & Minis class bring whatever your little one needs too. At the end of the session there will be tea and something yummy to nibble so you can have a chance to chat and get to know each other. If you have any dietary requirements let me know and if you need to rush off don’t worry, just bring a travel mug so you can take your goodies to go! One last thing! The last thing I need from you is a medical questionnaire, if you’re able to complete this and send back to me before your class that would be great! I'll email the correct one to you once you've booked your class. Looking forward to seeing you! Cancellation policy: If you can't make your usual session due to illness/holiday we'd love you to take a make up class in any of our other classes. This ensures you maintain that great Pilates feeling! NOTE - make up classes MUST be taken within the same block and cannot be carried over. Subject to available space and must be booked in advance - contact Michelle directly to book your make up session. PRIVATE SESSIONS - please note private sessions require 24 hours notice of cancelation/change. Less than 24 hrs notice will result in the full session being charged.
