2.    You are aware of a prolapse and have been given advice to continue pelvic floor and core exercises.
3.    You are experiencing a sensation of heaviness and/or urgency

Performance Classes (6:1)

If you are in your first trimester or recently had your baby, you are welcome to join performance classes which include our Beginner Reformer and Studio Pilates Classes. A 30 min Pilates Screen is highly recommended to make sure you are safe when doing exercises.

If you are in the 3rd Trimester we highly recommend doing our Clinical Classes 4 to 1 where you have an individualised program for you. Our therapists can help guide you into the right class for you.

Mums and Bub's Classes

Our Mums and Bubs class is the perfect form of exercise to help your body recover after pregnancy. This class is on our reformers and allows for you to bring your new bub along to the class. You must have an initial consultation prior to your first class.



What to Expect

Please bring any supporting documentation if you have any (Doctor letters, scans etc).

What to Wear

Please wear comfortable clothing that allow you to move freely and that will make it easier for our clinicians to assess the affected area.
