"I love the way Sophie arms you with this knowledge for life...rather than just delivering a set of movements without explaining the meaning behind them. I feel much more confident that I can develop my strongest body ever whilst being patient and attending to my pelvic floor in the first instance. Thank you Sophie for helping us mamas get our strength and confidence back! " Liz

After teaching Pilates for 20 years, I know that if you book into something, you're WAY more likely to tend to your body than if you think you'll just do some stretches at home when your baby's sleeping and then can't remember what to do! Join us, and learn movements you can incorporate into your week. AND check in with us each week to help keep you accountable to yourself.
In motherhood time just slips away. Tasks get done in small chunks or not at all. So rather than figuring out babysitting, sleep/feed/poop logistics, and packing ALL the things to get out to a class. Why not send your partner out with the kids on a Sat morning, roll out of bed, stay home in your PJ's, take some time to yourself and sneak some restorative movement into your day.
Mothering can be SO isolating! And it can be such a relief to know that other mums struggle to prioritise their wellbeing too. It's not. Just. You. Come and join a live session and connect with us! Let's move our bodies and take care of ourselves together. Even if you pop in just to say hi, or join for 10, or 30 mins, you're SO welcome AND there's always a recording you can do later.
Caring for your body with kindness and reverence.
Connect with your body. Trust your body. Feel at home in your body.
Motherbody membership is a holding space for mothers. It won't turn you into an athlete. It won't give you a six pack. It will hold you gently through the years of motherhood when you feel vulnerable and tired.
The Motherbody membership will help you to...
- Prioritise yourself when you feel like there's no time for you.
- Learn and practice exercises that will support your body to release tension and build strength.
- Lay down foundations of movement into your body each week that are really, really healthy.
The Motherbody membership is a holding space for mothers. Because movement is like sleep deprivation. It's cumulative. Over time, it adds up. One class a week, or 5 mins exercise a day over a period of years is really different to nothing at all over the same period. The way you move and care for your body now will influence how you feel inside your body in the years ahead. Movement matters. Your body matters.
