FAQs

How soon can I start this class?

This class is suitable from 8 weeks post birth and ideal for babies from 12 weeks.  They are welcome at 8 weeks but may sleep or feed through the class.  This is fine by me but can sometimes be a bit frustrating for Mum.

My baby is very unsettled, should I come?

I am very used to unsettled babies and am very happy to have them in the class; it can be stressful for Mum though.  I have a sanctuary area just beside the main hall where Mum can have a break from the class if she needs it.  I try to keep the class very flexible so that there are options to move around, sing a song, do some Baby Massage or Baby Yoga if I feel that will help a baby to enjoy the class. You're welcome to try for free before committing.

What happens in the class?

We begin with a very short chat about an aspect of motherhood and then do some simple relaxation for Mums to relax tight shoulders from all that feeding and cuddling! We then move into a warm up before our main Pilates core strengthening exercises and Yoga-based stretches. I weave in some Baby Massage and Baby Yoga.  We finish by using the parachute and songs to distract the babies while we stretch out in a closing phase. Then there's the all important tea, chat and biscuit!
