Post-natal Yoga and Pilates
Alternating weekly classes for you to restore, strengthen and energize the body following birth. Babies are welcomed to join the practice each week.
Post-natal yoga involves gentle vinyasa flow class, tailored for the each stage of your post natal recovery, to nurture the body, find the breath and calm the mind post birth.
Post-natal pilates quickens postpartum recovery by reconnecting the abdominals that have been stretched to allow the baby to grow. Once the core muscles have been re-established, the rest of the body can be strengthened to help you cope with all the bending and lifting you will be doing with your new baby. Simone focuses on readdressing the posture so that as the new demands of motherhood are encountered, the mother’s body is strong enough, so that all the carrying and breastfeeding does not result in backache.

Simone was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to the UK to study dance. While she was at the Royal Ballet School she was introduced to Pilates, and in rehabbing a back injury learned first hand about the benefits of Pilates. She danced with Northern Ballet Theatre and then returned to South Africa and danced with Cape Town City Ballet. During that time she trained in Pilates mat work and Equipment and taught at a popular studio in Cape Town. Simone relocated with her husband to London in 2012 and has been teaching Pilates at many studios in Central London, whilst continuing to perform as a contemporary dancer. She is a certified Body Control Pilates instructor and has a BA Honours in Psychology. Whilst Simone’s many years of dance experience has given her a sound understanding of body mechanics, she continues to expand her knowledge by taking regular workshops with leading Pilates authorities. After completing pre- and post-natal training a few years ago, and then giving birth to her son Zachary, Simone is excited to help other moms to get stability back to their bodies after the journey of childbirth.
