Are babies welcome? Yes, absolutely. They can either hang about in their buggy, you can bring a mat for them to roll about on, or you can put wear them in a sling.
I don’t have a mat. Where can I get one from and do I really need one? You can buy one for as little as £10 online. Prices for yoga mats go right the way up to £100 or more but you really don’t need something like that. They’re really useful and can be used for many other things eg as something to sit on during outdoor picnics. If you are really stuck getting one, you can use a towel or a picnic mat.
I’m not fit. Does that matter? It doesn’t matter what your starting point is, this class is open to all levels of fitness. These are designed to leave you unable to walk but will work your essential muscles and you can work at your own pace.
I’m already fit. Would these classes still benefit me? You may be running marathons but these classes can still help. They work on strengthening and repairing areas of the body which are often neglected or overlooked but which are absolutely necessary for future health.
How soon after giving birth can I attend these sessions? You’re welcome to join once you’ve had your 6 / 10-week post-natal check providing the doctor is happy with your health.
What should I wear? Wear comfy clothes which you find easy to move about in. There’s no jumping so there’s no need for a sports bra but please do wear trainers.
I’ve got a diastasis – can I still come? Absolutely! We can have a chat about this before the class starts and I’ll provide modifications or guidance where needed. Just because you’ve got a diastasis doesn’t mean you can’t still exercise!
I’ve been diagnosed with a prolapse – can I still come? In most cases, yes. I’ve got experience with working with women with a prolapse and also hernias. However, it’s always good to get guidance from your physio. For those with a mild prolapse, I’m confident I can make sure you’re staying within your limits with the class. However, for optimal results, it’s best to invest in personal training sessions for dedicated sessions. I’m also happy to have a chat to your doctor or women’s health physio to discuss your specific requirements.
PERSONAL TRAINING & PRIVATE CLASSES
I am also available for pre and post natal personal training. You can also get a regular group of at least four people together and I can train you all at a location of your choice within Islington. This can be pregnancy or post-natal groups. Email me for more information.
