If you have planned a special golf trip, want to beat the 80s, 90s and 100s, or just looking to improve your weekly golf game, then the 1:1 programme is for you.

Linda has the experience to train the novice to the professional golfer. She is a Pilates instructor with extensive knowledge about different golf instruction techniques and a passion to help golfers improve posture, strength and scores!

Why it’s good to do Pilates during and after your pregnancy:

Pilates can help your body to manage the changes happening during pregnancy, prepare it well for labour and help it recover faster after you have had your baby.

(Improving posture, flexibility, core strength and control of movement helps relieve muscle tension and any aches and pains you may have and assists with the added load of your bump or baby.

Increasing the strength of your pelvic floor muscles will help during the birth process, assist with postnatal recovery and reduce the occurrence of stress incontinence.)

Pilates during pregnancy

With medical clearance, it is safe to continue Pilates with some modifications right up until delivery, if it is comfortable for you.

If new to Pilates, we suggest you wait until 12 weeks pregnant and book a bespoke 1:1 antenatal assessment. If you are a regular, you must inform your class instructor and we would strongly advise you to have a bespoke 1:1 antenatal session around 12 weeks or early in the second trimester. We will happily guide you to suitable classes or further 1:1 sessions.

Our classes are mixed and it is important for you to learn about the necessary exercise modifications to do in class as you go through your pregnancy, to keep you and your baby safe.

Pilates after childbirth

After you have had your baby you can start Pilates again as soon as you have had your 6 week check following a normal delivery or 8 weeks post caesarean with stitches healed.

We strongly advise you to book a bespoke 1:1 postnatal assessment to assess you for Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (muscle separation), pelvic floor activation and any other health concerns.

Please talk to your instructor at any time if you have any concerns about your participation in class.
