POSTNATAL PILATES

My courses work at building strength from the inside out. We concentrate on breathing, on finding and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles which are weakened by pregnancy and birth, retrain and strengthen your tummy muscles, as well a strengthening the body as a whole. Through a combination of pilates exercises, massage and stretching, you will feel less tension in your shoulders and back, your posture will improve, you will feel more mobile and move more with ease bringing balance to both your body and your mind. As you start to feel stronger, weights and other small equipment can be added to challenge the pelvic floor and core muscles and increase strength and mobility through the body.

Lets get you back to where YOU want to be!!

RELEASE AND RESTORE

"What can i say! Suzie is an amazing pilates teacher who is patient, a natural teacher and her voice immediately helps you to relax. After having 2 children, i was left with a tummy gap, this effected the way i lifted things and impacted me on a daily basis. Suzie's sessions and varied techniques really helped me to improve my tummy gap and gain strength around that area. 1.5yrs later i not only do pilates for my tummy but because i feel great afterwards too."

Anna, Tooting

​I’ve been taking 1:1 Pilates classes with Suzie for a couple of months. I was nervous about starting exercise again after giving birth 6 months ago but she is a really patient and gentle teacher who tailors each class to my needs. I’ve really started to notice an improvement in my core strength as well as a reduction in my shoulder/neck stiffness. I would highly recommend getting in touch with Suzie if you’re thinking about giving Pilates a go, you won’t regret it!

Izabela, Putney

Suzie knows her stuff, making sure the exercises are done correctly and she pays  great attention to my post pregnancy body problems such as diastasis. I have had noticeable results after sessions with Suzie with no flare ups of my shoulder when carrying my baby, visibly reduced tummy, more energy, and motivation. Each session leaves me feeling both like i have worked hard but also relaxed. A bit of luxury at the end with tailored massage of a tricky part of the body's such a great combination, leaving me feeling good about myself.
