Attending a postnatal Pilates class can be a fun, social and motivating way of starting exercise after giving birth. Physiofusion offers Pilates classes for new mums who are looking to increase core strength & stability and improve body shape, posture & muscle tone. Run by experienced Chartered Physiotherapists Eva Flunkert & Lorraine O'Reilly, you can be assured that all exercises are safe and appropriate for your stage of postnatal recovery.
This course aims to help new mums reconnect with their core muscles and pelvic floor post-pregnancy as well as improve their general health and fitness levels. We assume that each participant will have some degree of diastasis recti, and we adapt exercises accordingly.
We focus on abdominal muscle retraining, pelvic floor rehabilitation, mobility and stability exercises for the spine and pelvis, as well as global and functional movements eg squats and lunges for overall improvement in muscle tone and strength.
Postnatal Pilates can be commenced from 6 weeks post vaginal delivery following your check up with your doctor. Many of our participants continue with us until their baby is crawling.
Our classes are kept to a maximum of 7 mothers so that we can offer individual attention and hands-on correction to all participants.
COVID 19 NOTICE APRIL-SEPTEMBER 2020:
Our Postnatal Classes are now online via Zoom.
Your new arrival is most welcome to join during class. While you exercise, your baby can work on their own movements or have a little nap on their own mat provided beside you and you are of course most welcome to take a break during the class to feed your little one or to look after their needs.
It is a very relaxed atmosphere so please don't be worried if your baby is a little out of sorts during the class.
Our postnatal class runs on Monday mornings at 10am during July & August 2020.
The September timetable is yet to be determined as we monitor the COVID situation for determining Zoom vs In Studio class decisions.
The course can be booked via our online booking system here.
We also offer specific classes of Pilates for Caesarian section recovery. To find out about these C-Section specific classes, please click here
