With the world today, Covid 19 has meant that group pilates classes can be scary to some people or to those with immunity issues. I have created group classes online that you can attend. It’s advisable to do one to one zoom pilates for the first class before attending the group online classes. In just the same way as with one to one in my studio, I can see you from my giant screen iPad. I am able to adjust your posture and position you correctly. It’s almost as good as face to face. Over lockdown, I was giving NHS free pilates zoom classes and so if you work for the NHS, contact me. I continue to offer free zoom classes to NHS.
During pregnancy exercise is a positive way forward and Pilates is an excellent solution for pregnant women who find it difficult to continue regular exercise with confidence. Sarah has been teaching Pilates one to one in a swimming pool recently with her very heavily pregnant client, Simone. Simone was too heavy to want Pilates in her final stages, but the water aided her movement and relieved her aching joints.
Sarah teaches private tuition to those pregnant students who wish to maintain strength, core stability and ease in pregnancy (as much as she can help)! This will include working on the ball and pelvic floor work.
