Postnatal PilatesInto Practice Class
What To Expect From Your Pilates Classes…………
Welcome to this half-termly course of friendly and relaxed Pilates for Mums!
These fun and restorative classes allow you to practise and embed everything you have learned on your Postnatal Pilates & Wellbeing Course (either in a group or 1-2-1).
Mums enjoy the huge benefits of being more connected with their postnatal body and look forward to their weekly Pilates practice as a time that’s time reserved especially for them. It’s like a weekly sanctuary and an opportunity to share how life is really going as a mum!
The ‘Into Practice’ bit in the title means you have the opportunity to practice everything you have learned to safely restore your pelvic floor and core. We’ll also work on alleviating those postnatal niggles from all that feeding, baby wearing and 24/7 mum responsibilities.
Our work on your core will help with all those common motherhood movements like squatting, lunging, rotating, pushing, pulling and locomoting! Each week depending on energy levels I’ll add a bit more a challenge!
You’ll get access to a closed Facebook group and a Whats App group for your class where you can keep in contact with other mums and continue to build your community of support.
I am always here to offer personalised support, both during class and outside hours. If I can’t help I will point you in the direction of someone who can.

I am attending Angela’s pilates class and can’t praise it highly enough. Angela takes you steadily through the exercises, changing a little each week to ensure we keep moving forward and don’t get too comfortable! I am most impressed with how much time she invests in making sure every member of the class are in the correct posture for each exercise so the right muscles are being engaged. I recommend many of my clients to try it, especially the postnatal class where you can take baby along too.
I am attending Angela’s pilates for mums class and really benefitting from her knowledgable and tailored teaching. She ensures everyone in the class is working effectively and changes exercises to suit how the class is feeling this week. I have picked up lots of helpful tips for improving posture and movement outside of the classes.
