WITH CLAIRE BARNABY
Claire runs her pregnancy pilates classes at her studio – The Little Pilates Company – in North Shields and her sessions are ideal for anyone who is pregnant in Newcastle and North Tyneside.
These are specialist classes for pregnant women, which are suitable from 16 weeks onwards. It’s a great way to look after your body during your pregnancy and also meet other mums to be!
PILATES CAN HELP TO:
Support your lower back- and your bump
Strengthen the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles
Improve your posture
Help with relaxation and breathing
Help to regain a flatter tummy after giving birth
I trained and qualified with Body Control Pilates in London, which is Europe’s leading Pilates organisation. (www.bodycontrol.co.uk), and have been teaching Pilates for over three years.
Being a mum of three small children I decided to specialize in pre and postnatal classes, partly because of my interest in it, and also because of the many benefits I found during my own pregnancy and, certainly afterwards, in helping to regain my pre-pregnancy body.
