The Postnatal Recovery Topics We Cover:
In all our Pilates classes we focus on gentle releases to alleviate post-pregnancy and postnatal tension in the body. We’ll work to find your optimal posture now you are no longer pregnant. We’ll restore core function, including the rehabilitation of diastasis recti and reconnection with your pelvic floor and we include functional exercises to strengthen your body in preparation for life as a mum.
The class topics are as follows:
- Week 1 – Posture, the pelvic floor and back care in the postnatal period
- Week 2 – Stretch and release
- Week 3 – Breath, the pelvic floor and restoring your core
- Week 4 – Self-care, relaxation, stress and nutrition in the postnatal period
- Week 5 – Those pesky glutes and why they are important
- Week 6 – Motherhood movement patterns – a gentle introduction of more functional
exercise like pushing, pulling, lifting, lunging and squatting.

Angela’s online content is amazing. It’s so simple to follow and I particularly love the shorter videos – great for doing a quick practice while the baby is napping, without needing to try to find a full hour.
I also loved being able to continue doing my Pilates routine while on holiday recently.
All in all, a real bonus!
I attended the 6 week Core Care & Pelvic Floor Repair Postnatal Pilates & Wellbeing Course with Angela. I had previously attended 1-2-1 sessions so was keen to get back to Pilates post pregnancy.
Joining the class was a fantastic way to refresh my memory with the core care I had previously learnt but most importantly to learn new techniques and knowledge to support my postnatal recovery.
As a result of joining the class Angela of course goes above and beyond and gives you the opportunity to join the members area on the zing wellness website. In which you can access all the course content. For me a new mum not always able to get to classes as easily as I would like with my little one – this content has proved invaluable.
The post natal videos that Angela has recorded are easy to follow, full of clear and relevant explanations and of course backed up by her extensive knowledge of the body. I now feel completely supported from the comfort of my own home!
It’s clear that Angela has spent quality time recording the course material, I am able to follow the videos clearly whilst spending the right amount of time on each move & technique – along with following the breath work with is of course super important. And the beauty is that you can choose which ever weeks content you want to practice. Alongside this if you have any questions you can leave Angela a comment!
I have been able to stream the videos to the TV via my iPhone and this gives me the option of spending the time when little one is asleep or If I have a free moment to stop and start as I please.
The members area and videos certainly give you the flexibility of using all the course material whenever you want. Which is extensive.
I would absolutely recommend following the home tutorials. Angela’s wealth of knowledge, energy, enthusiasm and passion make it worthwhile!
