The APPI modified the original 34 Pilates matwork exercises to incorporate recent research on lumbar instability, muscle imbalance and adverse neural tension.
Lucy first trained in the APPI method in 2003 and qualified as a Modified Pilates Instructor in 2005.
We offer classes in Modified Pilates. Before joining a class you need to speak to one of our qualified physiotherapists.
We also offer Post Natal Pilates. To attend these you must be at least 6 weeks post partum with a normal vaginal delivery and 12 weeks post partum following a Caesarian section.
You will also need to inform the physiotherapist if there were any problems during the pregnancy or birth.
To ensure a high quality of teaching, class numbers are restricted to a maximum of 8. Therefore it is essential to book attendance in advance.
Lucy is great, she’s a physiotherapist from UK and has excellent knowledge about all the things that you might struggle with after the pregnancy (worn out pelvic floors, aching backs, lost muscles, a few more pounds etc).
It’s also really nice to get out and meet other mums and you can take your baby with you, which is also very convenient.
