After suffering lower back pain and nerve damage for four years due to a previous pregnancy and birth, I was very nervous about how my body would cope with yet another pregnancy. Upon falling pregnant again, my specialist recommended I take up one-on-one Pilates to help manage the pain.
From our first meeting (at six weeks pregnant) I was confident Michelle was the right person to manage my somewhat complex symptoms. With her background as a physio combined with her training in pilates she very quickly understood what I was dealing with and what we needed to do to help get me through this pregnancy.
Now, at 26 weeks, I am happy to say that Michelle has helped me immensely. Through small controlled movements, I have seen my core become much stronger, which in turn has helped alleviate the pain and nerve damage symptoms. Also, in learning the art of fully relaxing some parts of my body while working other muscles means I now hold less tension and strain.
Michelle is also an incredibly warm and calming person and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to keep healthy during pregnancy, regardless of a history of injury or not.
I enjoy Julie’s Pilates classes. She is excellent at guiding you through each exercise and readily adjusts any exercise to accommodate anyone’s injuries. I feel great after a class; calmed, relaxed and stretched!
