Pilates for Pregnancy

Launching Autumn 2017

We are launching Pilates for Pregnancy Classes this Autumn. If you are planning on having a baby, currently pregnant or have recently given birth then these classes are ideal for you.

The classes will cover pre-conception, nutrition, mindset, meditation and give structured, safe exercise routines for all three trimesters.

THE BENEFITS OF DOING PILATES DURING PREGNANCY

By doing Pilates during pregnancy, a mother can provide the best physical and emotional environment for themselves and for their baby. It will not only help during the delivery process via our meditation techniques but will help mum recover more quickly afterwards.

As a woman’s body changes shape during pregnancy it’s important that good posture is maintained pre and post natal. This reduces stress and strain on the muscles and joints, improves blood supply and will help combat back pain.

The classes will also cover how to detect Diastasis Recti (Diastasis means separation. Recti means the Rectus Abdominus) and will teach exercise do’s and don’ts to recover those tummy muscles.

The classes will run in the Stirling and surrounding area and will launch in the Autumn. Dates and venues to be confirmed soon.

If you are interested in our new Pre-Post Natal “Pilates for Pregnancy Classes” please complete this enquiry form.

Jean

“Jacquie has been working with me since 2013. The overall improvement in my posture and well being has been noticed and commented on by my friends and family. I developed Scoliosis during my teenage years, but I didn’t really suffer any pain until I was in my 30’s.

From then onwards, I was treated by Physiotherapists and Osteopaths on a regular basis. I’ve attended Pain Clinics, had accupuncture, worn a Tens Machine and been on various pain killers. Some treatments worked for varying lengths of time and others had little or no effect. Latterly I was seeing a Physiotherapist every 6 weeks and taking 5 Gabapentin tablets a day. I was in constant pain, it hurt getting in and out of the car, I couldn’t stand up straight from a sitting position and it was painful to sit down.A chat with a neighbour about Pilates led me to Jacquie. In my first 4 months of lessons, I was standing taller and had better spinal flexibility.

I can now move freely every day. I recently got a gorgeous new Cockapoo puppy and I’m able enjoy long walks with her.

“Jacquie has made a huge improvement to my overall well being and health.” Jean

Gordon

I started Pilates because my posture was awful, I had recurring chronic neck pain, back pain and a rotator cuff injury. The sport I play competitively, curling, was more difficult for me as a result.  I needed a regime change to impilatesprove my posture and strengthen my core muscles to enable me to continue to play. Further I needed to alleviate the chronic pain.

I decided upon Pilates having researched the systems. I happened upon your web site as a local expert in the spring of 2016. The private lessons you kindly provided my wife and I persuaded me that the regime was the way forward. Your group classes are excellent, fun and have without doubt gradually changed my posture and attitude. I am not pain free but only the cuff injury remains a nuisance. I am much more flexible, relaxed and fitter in the space of 3 months. The curling season has started well too!

Thank you so very much for all of your guidance… I realise that there is still much to do and be achieved but I’ll get there. Even the garden has been kicked into shape in the last month!”Gordon

“Having suffered with chronic lower back pain for more than 30 years, I haven’t been able to get beyond being able to stand for around ten minutes at a time and I was unable to walk continuously for around fifteen minutes.After only ten Pilates sessions with Jacquie, I am now able to stand for double the length of time I could. I walked to my local shops and back this week, without having to sit down for a rest. Total time spent walking? Almost double!I am 100% certain that this is a direct result of attending Jacquie’s weekly classes. Imagine what I might be doing this time next year!

Jacquie herself has a lovely caring manner which, combined with her expertise, makes her an inspiring and encouraging teacher.Jan Harrison

Angela

Angela started coming to my private Pilates Studio at Bracken Lane, Stirling in May 2016. She was in recovery after falling 20 feet off an indoor climbing wall and fracturing her T11 and T12 vertebrae. She spent many months in hospital followed by intense recuperation and physiotherapy. Once she had reached a degree of mobility it was recommended that she start doing Pilates to further her recovery. Upon her first private class with me, I asked her what her expectations were from Pilates. Her response was “to be pain free” and “confident in a class situation.” Six months down the line, Angela has now returned to her favourite pastime of climbing (mountains and indoor climbing walls). She is a regular attendee at my Tuesday morning Pilates Class in Bridge of Allan.

“Jacquie Robertson who owns Beaumont Body shaping is so passionate, enthusiastic and experienced about pilates and cares attentively for the individuals at the class. I’m so happy to have found a wonderful instructer as looking after my back is now part of my career and a job for life !” Angela
