Mat-Based Classes available in Woodley, near Reading, Berkshire:
I have a limited number of places available, so please call 07970 188816 to reserve your place. A typical 6 week course costs £45.
These mat-based Pilates classes are run as small group classes, to maximise personal attention and are therefore suitable for most people (see below).
Pre and Postnatal Pilates:
Specific pre and postnatal courses are available if there is adequate demand, if not I can often accommodate you in the general mat-based classes, or run 1-2-1 sessions. Please call or email for more information.
Pilates is a slow, controlled, relaxing series of exercises ideal for the new mum.
Who can do Pre/Postnatal Pilates?
Personal sessions run in your own home and tailored to your needs. Includes a full postural assessment and an individual program. Please call or email for more information.
Post-Breast Cancer Rehab Classes:
Surgical investigations and treatment for breast cancer, with or without reconstruction, can affect the movement at the shoulders, the overall posture and a person's sense of well-being. The Pink Ribbon Program is a post-operative Pilates based recovery programme, developed in the USA, to help regain mobility and improve strength and posture. Taught 1-2-1 or in small groups, it is suitable for both recent survivors and those whose surgery was some time ago but who have failed to recover full mobility in the affected areas. The Pink Ribbon Program is typically taught over 6 weeks, twice a week, or over 12 weeks, once a week. Please call or email for more information.
Who can do Pink Ribbon Pilates?
After completing the Pink Ribbon Program many women feel comfortable to attend regular group Pilates classes as they then have the knowledge of which exercises are or aren't suitable for a person post breast cancer (eg. avoiding excessive weight bearing on the arms due to increased risk of lymphoedema, avoiding excessive spinal flexion due to increased risk of osteoporosis).
3 hour sessions looking at each of the original 34 Pilates exercises and their adaptations. Run twice yearly for Improvers. Please call or email for more information.
Who is Pilates suitable for?
Who is Pilates not suitable for?
There are very few people for whom Pilates is not suitable, but if you have not exercised for some time, or have any health concerns then you ought to consult your doctor before starting any exercise program. Call to discuss your circumstances.
