Our Mum and Baby Pilates Classes have been running since April 2016 and have been extremely popular which is why we now have 4 every week in Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Hornsey.
The classes are kept small for personal attention and babies and all their demands are most welcome! You will be doing a full body postnatal workout and having a good laugh too in this nurturing and friendly environment. Classes book up well in advance but weekly drop ins do become available.
Babies are welcome from 6 weeks* until they are crawling, however if you have a new crawler who would be happy to stay close by with some toys then just let us know. Babies are optional and not required for the classes, but if you do bring them please bring a car seat, blanket or a bouncer. We provide a couple of bouncers to share.
*Please note that the recommendation for commencing general exercise post cesarean section is to wait 10-12 weeks, however if you feel ready from 8 weeks and your GP has approved you for exercise sooner then you are welcome to join and Postnatal Pilates is the ideal rehabilitation.
