re:ab green tick image icon

Pilates is an excellent option for pregnant women with benefits including helping to strengthen and tone the body in preparation for changes that occur during pregnancy, helping reduce the risk of aches, pains and complications, as well as training the body for the marathon of childbirth!!

re:ab green tick image icon

Our classes are designed to be taken at your own pace and will be modified to suit individual needs and any evolving issues as pregnancy progresses. All fitness levels are welcome and no prior experience is necessary.

re:ab green tick image icon

If you are new to Pilates, or have any pain or injury we do recommend a pre assessment appointment with one of our physiotherapists to ensure we address your individual needs.

re:ab green tick image icon

It is also important to get the all clear from your Lead Maternity Carer before attending our pregnancy classes

re:ab green tick image icon

At around 6 - 10 weeks post-natal, it is safe to return to light exercise. Pilates is an excellent option helping to rebuild core and pelvic floor strength.

WHY GO ONLINE?

Make it work for you

Online classes give you the flexibility to work out from your home without compromising on the quality of your workout.

Classes are grouped by length of time as well as difficulty level, so you will always be able to find something to fit into your schedule. We are adding to the online collection all the time, so there's always something new to try, and you can choose to 'like' a class (DON"T KNOW IF YOU CAN!) so you'll never have to hunt for that favourite workout again.  

If you prefer to have a time specfic workout, join our 'live-streamed/in-person' classes on the timetable.

Our physio workouts are designed to keep you on track with your rehab exercises, so you never forget those helpful cues and watchpoints.

At re:ab we have many members, who have been with us since the beginning. Yes, even before we moved into Selbourne Street! You are those members, who no longer need convincing of all the benefits Pilates offers, but at the same time, a fast paced and fitness driven class, is not what you’re after anymore. Your goal is no longer about how much extra resistance you’re adding to your reformer each week, or how fast you can perform ‘the Hundreds’. For you, it’s about what Pilates can add, so that you can stay as active and engaged in your life outside of class - whether that’s an ability to enjoy travel more, continue to engage with your hobbies and friends, or simply run after your grandkids!
