About this Event

A gentle Pilates class tailored specifically to post-natal women, focusing on stretching, strengthening and relaxation to restore and re-balance the body. Babies are welcome in class until they are able to crawl.

This is a small group class with only 6 participants and is suitable for beginners. You must be at least 6 weeks post-natal (10 weeks c-section) and have GP approval to exercise.

This is a 6 week term, starting 18 August 2020. Classes are Tuesday mornings, 11:30am, Elite Pilates, Donnybrook. The cost of the 6 weeks is 90 euro.

What are the benefits of pre-natal Pilates?

  • Relieve back and pelvic pain
  • Re-build your core and pelvic floor at a slow and safe pace
  • Bond with your baby and meet other mums
  • Build key post-natal muscles for holding and feeding baby
  • Relieve stress and body tension through meditation and breathing

Covid-19 Precautions

  • Classes are limited to maximum of 6 participants
  • No equipment is used in class, to minimize touch points in the studio
  • For hygiene reasons, you must bring your own mat
  • Grip socks or toe socks are to be worn in studio
  • You are more than welcome to wear a face covering in class (optional)
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided and should be used upon entry and exit
  • Your instructor will be wearing a face shield/face mask at all times
  • In the event of studio closure, live online classes will be provided

Additional cleaning and Covid-19 procedures are being carried out at the studio, these will be included in your order confirmation email.

What do I need to bring to the class?

Please bring your own gym mat. Please wear socks with grips to prevent slips - you can also purchase these at the studio (19 euro). Make sure you wear comfortable clothing (leggings and tshirt are fine) and a good bra if you need it - although there is no impact to the exercises in this class. Please bring whatever you need for feeding/changing baby - including a blanket to lie on. Please don't bring a buggy with you, but you are welcome to bring in your car seat if baby is sleeping.

As part of COVID-19 protocols, we ask that you bring minimal items with you, so please keep this in mind when coming to class.

Do I need Pilates experience?

Absolutely not - we focus on movement - stretching what's tight and strengthening weaknesses, without complicated moves. This is a small group class (max 6 people) so you will get plenty of attention, help and support.

How does the class work when I have a baby with me?

Baby will lie next to you on your mat, so bring a blanket with you. Your mat will act as your "bubble" and be at an acceptable distance from other mummies and babies. The exercises we do in class focus on mummy - baby isn't incorporated as such (unless you choose to hold them) however they will be laying next to you so there's plenty of opportunity to interract. This also means that if they're asleep, you're still able to fully participate in the class.

Feeding, nappy changing and nurturing in class is welcome - anything goes really - you can stop anytime to tend to your baby in any way you need to.
