We are here to offer evidence based advice with a holistic approach to support you with both the physical and mental aspect of these changes.
C-section Recovery Workshop
Around 1 in 4 births in the UK are a c-section delivery. C-sections can be elected or emergency. Some c-section births are blissful, calming and truly wonderful experiences, others may experience an incredibly traumatic birth that leaves lasting effects.
During this 90 minute workshop with Julie, our scar therapist and post natal specialist, you will learn:
– About your scar and the different stages of the healing process
– Massage techniques to soften your scar and to encourage good healing
– Exercises to reconnect your core following surgery
– Nutrition to support your recovery
– Stretching to release the typical post natal aches and pains
It’s perfect for
– women who have had a c-section birth over 12 weeks ago
– women who want to learn how to look after their new scar
– women who want to return to exercise safely following a c-section
– women who want to learn more about their scar and the impact it has on their body
During the 90 minute workshop you will experience some self massage on your scar, under the tuition of a scar therapist. There will be a presentation about how your scar heals and the various stages of scar healing.
You will learn core exercises that are safe to do following a c-section and stretches to ease aching muscles that are affected most during this post natal period.

Happy Barre Class
Stretch, tone, lengthen and ‘pointe’ your way through this beautiful ballet inspired Barre class.
We mix Plies, Tendus, Jetes and arabesques with arm strengthening work, leg and butt work and core stability work. No previous ballet experience is required, although ex-ballerinas are more than welcome too as there are PLENTY of options!
Sam goes above and beyond for all of us and is really understanding and lovely all of the time. She is able to adapt the session for whoever comes to suit their ability. She does this all in her stride and never fully knows who will be there at each workout group so needs to be able to adapt quickly. I wouldn't go to anyone else now that I know Sam. She makes you feel at ease right away and actually happy to exercise which is no easy feat!
