We are offering Pilates @ The Physio Rooms at our Hove clinic inside Pavilion & Avenue Tennis Club, 19 The Droveway, Hove, BN3 6LF.

Classes are run by our experienced teacher Georgie Shand. We can also offer one to one Pilates using the Reformer, mat work or a combination.

The Pilates method was created by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900′s. With no equipment, Joseph learnt how to condition his mind and body. His technique works to re-awaken the body through balance and movement. This technique has been used by dancers and gymnasts for decades. More recently Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and General Practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today.

Pilates is derived from an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal system. It can be beneficial for just about anyone, regardless of age and level of fitness. Pilates is either taught in a matwork or studio setting.

Mum & Baby Pilates

This is a class specifically designed for mums looking to get back to their pre pregnancy shape and to feel truly confident in their postpartum body.

We use the principles of Pilates for the first part of the class where we are on the mats doing core and pelvic floor exercises to strengthen the weakened abdominals and help with any diastisis recti, and then move into a full body circuit of more functional exercises.

The class has a maximum of 5 mums plus babies; all welcome from 6 weeks onwards, from lying on the floor to cruising around the room: bring toys and snacks to help keep them entertained, as the class is for you, and a chance for you to get as much from the exercises as possible.

Here’s what mum’s have said:

Pilates with Georgie has helped me repair and regain my core after giving birth to Twins! Like all new mums getting back into doing any form of exercise can be daunting. Georgie understands this and her sessions have eased me back into physical activity. I’m now back running regularly and Georgie’s sessions have played a huge part in this as I now feel stronger after the birth of my babies. I would totally recommend the sessions to any new mum or anyone wanting to use Pliates to strengthen and develop their bodies.

I have really loved the mum & baby pilates class, it’s great to have a chance to do some exercise without arranging childcare. Georgie’s excellent at tailoring the exercises to each person’s ability and suggesting modifications where needed (often, in my case, using my fussy daughter as a weight rather than a dumbbell).
— Yvette
Georgie’s Mum and Baby class has helped me tremendously. Following the arrival of my son, and the new demands placed on my body. Georgie has helped me to recognise these and work with my post natal body in a kind manner. Georgie is extremely professional and supportive ensuring we’re correctly moving and educating us specifically in terms of postpartum along the way. I look forward to each class and feel on top of the world when we finish a session. My son also enjoys meeting the other babies and generally wondering what on earth we’re all up to.’
