A few weeks ago when Ryan Giggs had just played brilliantly for Manchester United, the commentators were discussing him after the game and one of them credited his great form with the fact that he does Pilates. It just shows the amazing versatility within the method and I really hope with sportsmen like Giggsy getting involved it will encourage more men to join it.
There is so much to talk about when it comes to post natal fitness, there simply wasn’t enough room to talk about it on one page. So if you are wanting to understand things a bit better, this is a great place to start. Women feel a lot of pressure post-natally to get back to their pre-pregnant shape and, in our celebrity culture it is difficult not to get swept up in it. The good news is, you CAN get back to that shape but you need to go about it in the right way.
I trained with the Pilates Foundation because I believe their course to be the most well-rounded and specialised teacher training programme in the UK. The Pilates Foundation are recognised by the NHS and have the highest standards of teaching. After 18 months of full-time training, with over 1500 hours of study, I am qualified to teach both matwork and machine work and I continue to study and attend workshops.
