Jen’s training has been through APPI, a physiotherapy focused form of modern Pilates. APPI Pilates trainers have been educated to ensure that anyone can benefit from this safe, enjoyable and beneficial form of activity whether you have bad posture, chronic lower back pain, osteoarthritis to pregnancy. This form of Pilates is adaptive regardless to your aches and pains.
Pilates consists of slow, precise and controlled movements ensuring that you are activating your deep spinal stabilisers (core) throughout. Anyone can move, regardless of your symptoms so why not contact us to find out more?
Pregnancy & Post Natal Pilates
Exercising in pregnancy & post birth has so many benefits for both physical & mental health. Exercise during pregnancy can feel daunting. You want to keep fit and be prepared for birth, but you also don’t want to push your body too far. It is important to find a good balance of exercises that challenge you and build strength, but at the same time are safe for you and your baby.
In my pregnancy Pilates classes I will guide you through low impact yet very effective exercises that help you find the perfect balance. The classes are designed to gain new confidence and build strength in your changing body. I will offer adaptations for different trimesters and various pregnancy symptoms you might be experiencing (e.g. pelvic girdle pain, lower back pain, lower leg swelling). The classes are suitable from the second trimester onwards and no prior experience of Pilates is required. For your safety I recommend a 1:1 introductory session prior to the first class which can be done via Zoom. We would discuss your pregnancy, any symptoms you might be having, discuss medical history and make sure you know how to perform the exercises safely whilst getting to know you and your body.

Having never done Pilates before I was desperate to find someone to help me with my post partum recovery.
