Really good Pilates, especially for Mothers.
An online monthly membership to help you build the strength and mobility you need for Motherhood. This program is designed for the specific needs of your Motherbody. With a particular focus on preventing, managing, and rehabilitating injuries related to pregnancy, birth, and mothering.
"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
PRE natal classes
Movement for pregnant mama's. Focus on preventing and managing core injuries such as leaking, diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic girdle pain, preparing for birth, and building strength for pregnancy and motherhood. Classes are taught live and are also recorded for you to do anywhere, anytime with minimal equipment.
Each week covers a different theme including balance, pelvic floor, birth prep, functional movement for motherhood.
The birth prep theme is relevant for your core health, not just for birth prep, so if you're scheduled for a cesarean section, it's still appropriate for you!

Classes are taught live each week except for holidays, 2 weeks each at Summer, Easter, June, September. Actual dates to be advised. It works out to be 44 prenatal and 44 postnatal classes taught live per year. And about 9 bonus workshops as well as three core intensives to take you deeper into caring for your mama body.
Because there's ALWAYS more to learn about caring for your Motherbody. There is no end point. This work keeps getting deeper and more interesting the further you dive in.
After working with thousands of mums, 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 when your baby's sleeping but then can't remember what to do! Classes are taught live online every week (except during scheduled holidays).
In motherhood time just slips away. Tasks get done in small chunks or not at all. So rather than packing ALL the things, or figuring out baby sitting to get out to a class. Why not stay home in your trackies and learn how to sneak some restorative movements into tiny pockets of time through your day.
Mothering can be SO isolating! Join a live class or workshop and connect with other mums also navigating the bumpy path of mothering babies and littles, whilst also caring for yourself. Even if you pop in just to say hi, or join for 10, or 30 mins, you're SO welcome AND you have the recording you can do later.
