Pre and Post-natal Pilates
Elite Spinal Physiotherapy and Pilates is well equipped and welcomes mum’s and mum’s-to -be. All of our sessions are run by Physiotherapists who can tailor your program to make sure you stay fit, strong and flexible through out your pregnancy and after your bub is born.
We have numerous pieces of equipment in our studio, such as a reformer, wunda chair, Cadilac etc. This allows us to design a specific program for wherever you are up to.
Which sessions are suitable?
To make it as flexible as possible we encourage all our mum’s and mum’s to be to attend any of the classes on the schedule. As we have very small class sizes everyone completes their own tailored program therefore allowing a range of people to attend the same session.
We also have specific mum’s and bub’s class times. These are times where everyone is able to bring their baby. We have a special soft play mat where the babies can lie or play and lots of room for prams.
Can I bring my baby?
You are most welcome to bring them to the mum’s and bub’s class times
You can do private sessions and bring your baby to the session. One great option is to come with a friend or two and book a time that suits you all. We have lots of space in the studio for the babies to play.
