Pre & Post Natal Pilates

Richmond, Twickenham, Teddington & Kingston


Mum and Baby pilates was the perfect way to rebuild my strength and start exercising again. The classes have a really supportive atmosphere (there’s usually one baby who has a lot to say, often mine…!) and Nikki is a fantastic teacher – she really pays attention to each individual and gives recommendations and corrections throughout, which can be rare in a group class. I would recommend this class to all new Mum’s! Lottie, 35

During the class baby can be next to you on the mat, or lay in pram/carseat, which ever suits you both. If you need to stop to feed your baby during the class, that’s absolutely no problem. Classes are gentle and kind on the body, focusing on strengthening, toning, stretching and we explore prescribed exercises that focus on that all important core work to help you gently allow your body to heal and recover in the best possible way following the trauma and changes following childbirth and the demands of motherhood.
