I TEACH TRIGGER POINT PILATES IN ALL MY PILATES CLASSES
Trigger Point Pilates™ is a combination of Pilates based exercises combined with Myofascia Release (which is traditionally a hands-on therapy). This means you will be strengthening your core and releasing muscle tightness in the same class.
Trigger Point Pilates helps alleviate chronic pain conditions and constant muscular tightness, undoing muscular restrictions and enhancing functional movement – At the end of a class one feels light, lengthened and able to move with total ease.
The class is designed to release tight muscles and enhance functional daily movement, and restructure the body. This class attracts everyone from the elite fit to the post rehab. Fascia restrictions occur in everyone, whatever their age, activity or level of fitness.

• QIGONG is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves
meditation, controlled breathing, self-massage and movement exercises.
Qi means “life forced energy” and gong “developing skills” it can be
translated as “energy cultivation”
• It is excellent stress reduction, anxiety, prevention of illness, dealing with
chronic illness, reducing heart rate and blood pressure, boosts immune
system, relives headaches, and facilitating relaxation and mental focus.
• Qigong can harmonise, strengthen and have a healing effect on the
functioning of all the internal organs and bodily systems. It increases the
supply and flow of energy throughout the body.
• Qi is associated with the breath because like the breath, it animates our
body and brings it to life. When our vital QI is flowing, we feel healthy. When
it is blocked we feel pain. When QI becomes weak, we feel tired. When
there is no QI left, the body dies.
We will practice EIGHT BROCATES for Organ and Meridian Health as well as
focusing on strengthening organ that is associated to a current element of the
season according to 5 Chinese elements.
NOW over winter months we will focus on strengthening Kidneys.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys and bladder resonate with the water
element and the season of WINTER. Happy kidneys are relaxed kidneys and their
state of vitality is the key to our health and longevity. If you feel tired, and would
like to have more energy and vitality Kidney Qigong is made for you!
Here are the organs that we will focus on according to current season.
Winter – Kidneys & Bladder
Spring – Liver & Gall Bladder
Summer – Heart & Small Intestine
Late Summer – Spleen & Stomach
Autumn – Lungs & Large Intestine
Each season will be split into 3 different Qigong practises PURGING, TONIFIING and CIRCULATING session to cleanse, nourish, circulate, refine and store QI.
- PURGING exercises are used to cleanse the body of acquired QI and to release
QI stagnation. Purging practices can be used to relieve chronic stress, tension, anxiety and toxicity.
- TONIFICATION exercises nourish the organs, smooth the flow of QI through the meridians and fortify the QI in the lower dantian. Tonification routines are best to used when you feel tired, are recovering from the surgery or illness and to increase life forced energy for longevity.
- CIRCULATION exercises irrigate the tissues, energize organs, recycle energy,
build internal power and strength. Circulation practices can be used to calm down,
or when feel healthy and wish to increase life forced energy and raise your vibration.
HALF HOUR SESSION will focus on either PURGING, TONIFIING OR CIRCLULATING the organ associated
with current season.

PRE AND POSTNATAL ADVICE
Exercising during pregnancy
Exercise takes you and your baby through periods of intermittent oxygen delivery so does the labour. Therefore when you are training whilst pregnant it’s helping prepare you and your baby for the labour.
Benefits of exercise during pregnancy
- Improved circulation
- Reduced swelling
- Reduced leg cramps
- Reduced maternal weight gain
- Reduced risk of low back pain
- Easier, shorter labours
- Reduction in labour pain
Benefits of post-natal exercise
- Burn off the excess “baby fat” with lots of cardio pushing intervals
- Tighten and tone your muscles with resistance training
- Improve core stability for a healthier back and flatter abs
- Condition your pelvic floor so you can sneeze with ease!
- Reduce the risk of post-natal depression
- Increase energy to cope with the demands of new motherhood
- Speedier return to your pre-pregnancy shape and level of fitness
- Socialise and meet other mums and babies
When is it safe to start exercising after birth?
A physical recovery period is essential to ensure the uterus has retracted back into the pelvis, bleeding and discharge have ceased and stitches have healed.
Initially, after birth it is best to take it easy; resting and bonding with your baby is more important than putting on your trainers! However, you can begin exercising your pelvic floor muscles. Also getting out and about is good for your physical and mental health, so try to take your baby out for light walks in his/her pram as soon as you feel up to it. Don’t feel pressured to exercise before you are ready. Listen to your body.
Before commencing any exercise programme or postnatal fitness class please always check with your GP / Midwife. It is recommended that after a natural vaginal birth you wait until after your 6-week postnatal check by your GP / Midwife. If you had a caesarean it is recommended that you wait until 8 / 10 weeks after birth.
