We are starting a weekly prenatal Yoga and Pilates class on Mondays at 5-6pm at the Bristol Yoga Centre. This is a unique pregnancy class in which the positive benefits of both yoga and Pilates are combined to promote health and wellbeing.
Celia is a chartered physiotherapist with over 11 years experience and a special interest in women's health. She undertook postgraduate Pilates training through the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute, and then further training, with the same organisation, in pre and post natal Pilates. Celia is also a yoga teacher and undertook pregnancy yoga teacher training at The Yoga Campus in London.
Pilates targets the exact muscles and functions that can become problematic during
pregnancy and in the postnatal period, in a safe way. Yoga techniques, including breath and movement, aid relaxation and help maintain a healthy mind during this time of change.
