All of my classes progress safely and gently, and are designed specifically for anyone who has had stoma surgery. My teaching is based on a Clinical Pilates methodology which progresses far more slowly than more classical Pilates, therefore is ideal for anyone with a stoma. The focus is on concentration, precision and control, and development of the deep inner core muscle function, building foundations for movement and confidence. Exercising in a safe and 'stoma friendly' way.
Both LIVE and ON DEMAND classes follow the same levels and principles so you know exactly where you are and which class is right for you. And you can confidently mix and match with LIVE and ON DEMAND classes.
Please read the following class descriptions carefully and choose the right level for you, based on an honest appraisal of your own ability. It's far better to start with an easier class and build up.
Classes in this series are designed for people who are just post-surgery, and can be started as soon as 2 weeks after your operation.
The classes are safe, slow paced, extremely gentle and based on the mat, so you'll be lying on your back, side or on your hands and knees.
Designed to help you reconnect with your core muscles and rebuild your confidence.
In line with UK clinical nursing guidelines and based on physio led clinical Pilates.
