» Courses and therapies
with Josie Lucas
Josie is currently on maternity leave and classes will resume after April
Thursdays 11.00am-12.00pm in Gosforth
Fridays 11.30am-12.30pm at the Nest in Low Fell
Classes run as courses which must be booked in advance.
This class is suitable after the mother's six week post-natal check, up until baby is mobile. No prior Pilates experience is needed. The focus of the class is introducing the basic principles of Pilates with particular attention to pelvic floor strengthening, abdominal support and postural awareness.
This is a mother-centred exercise class, but provides practical ideas on how to adapt the exercises to include mother/baby interaction and creative play.
The amount of baby interaction is left to the mother's discretion and if time-out is needed to feed, cuddle or play, it’s all fine! It is about facilitating the exercises so that mothers feel confident practising at home with their baby at regular intervals through the day, e.g. nappy change time!
