All Beginner classes incorporate Mat, Gymball , Core, Stretching and Aerobic type Exercises.
Free to repeat beginner pilates if you have attended Baby Massage.
All beginners attend a 1-2-1 appointment during which they are screened and taught some of the basic principles of Pilates on an individual basis by Adeline before their class starts (no additional charge). If you are attending another practitioner (Physio, GP, Osteopath etc) for an ongoing issue, please discuss attending the class with them and mention that you will be involved in stretching and gym ball exercises along with your mat based Pilates exercises. It is most important that you discuss this with the practitioner that knows your ongoing issues.
Baby friendly beginners class is suitable for postnatal mums and dads: you can bring your newborn baby and toddlers (certain rules apply to toddlers attending the class) with you to this class. This class runs at the same pace and covers the same content as a standard beginners class but has a slightly different emphasis on postnatal issues (pre-booking required as with all classes). You can also join this class if you don’t wish to bring a baby with you. At present this is the only standard class that you can bring your newborn to. Dads are welcome to attend this class with their baby also. Normally those attending the Baby friendly classes go for coffee after the class so you will get to meet the other parents that are also attending.
