A Chartered Physiotherapist with over 15 years experience and Certified Pilates Instructor since 2012, Jo‘s antenatal exercise classes will help your body adapt to the demands of pregnancy and manage the aches and pains that go with it!
The antenatal course helps Mums to be improve core/pelvic strength during their pregnancy, and is great way to help rid pelvic pain and back ache. Learn how to integrate movement and breathing strategies into everyday life in a way which helps prevent leaking, overloading the abdominals and pressure on pelvic organs.
Postnatal exercise classes have a strong focus on pelvic floor rehabilitation, core abdominal activation and the healing of abdominal separation.

All Pilates classes are held at The Studio, off Grovebury Road in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

"I'm currently doing the postnatal summer school with Jo and after just one session I've signed up to September's course.
It's great that you can take your baby along to these sessions and it all feels very relaxed so mums are able to stop during the session to see to their babies before joining back in.
Jo clearly has a lot of expert knowledge and is more than happy to answer questions."

"I am really enjoying my Pilates sessions with Jo. She is so welcoming and puts everyone at ease. She gives you different levels of difficulty which is great when you first start and need to ease yourself in, but also handy for when you fancy trying something more challenging.
Also being able to bring our babies along is great else lots of us would miss out. My little boy loves watching all the mummies and often shouts out squeals of encouragement!!! I just wish I had done it after my first baby!! Thank you Jo"

"Jo’s 4 week antenatal Pilates class is great. A lovely room and exercises that are totally tailored to pregnant ladies. Gives you a good workout - makes you feel you’ve done something useful and worthwhile.
There’s a goodie bag at the first class with useful bits and the class gets a WhatsApp group where Jo shares helpful pictures to remind you of exercises to do at home and also useful links to other helpful info. This stays available after the end of the course so you can stay in touch with the lovely friends you’ve made!
It’s great to get the advice of a physio like her and a post-birth check up by her is definitely on my list of things to book. She runs a postnatal Pilates class too, which I shall certainly be signing up to when the time comes!"
J. Bradley, Antenatal Course, August 2019
"I have just finished my first taster session for Mum and baby with Jo and really enjoyed it.
Jo is professional from start to finish, the studio has a lovely relaxing ambiance and at the end there is a very cute cafe to finish off with tea,cake or biscuit. We shall be returning!"
