The story behind the course...
This course has been designed by Women's Health Physiotherapist Claire Ryan specifically to fill the gap in the traditional pilates training. The gap that doesn't include considerations for pregnant and postnatal populations, pelvic floor issues, or clients with pain conditions. For years feedback has been given by both clients and instructors about the lack of confidence surrounding these issues. Claire wrote the course while on maternity leave herself and launched both the online and face-to-face versions in 2023.
"I'm a strong believer that pilates is the perfect form of exercise during both pregnancy and postpartum however there needs to be specific training for instructors to maximise its potential and make everyone feel safe. This course is perfect to provide instructors both the knowledge, skills, and confidence to teach amazing and beneficial classes to support women through their pregnancy and postnatal journey.

"I have always felt worried when pregnant clients are in my class. I tend to make the programming easy to take extra caution. This course has cleared up all my concerns. Now I know how to push people and still be safe."
"This course was so informative and practical. I now feel confident with knowing how to modify programming when client have pain issues which is something I ha always struggled with. And the pelvic floor info was so helpful!"
"Finally I have some clarity on abdominal exercises in pregnancy! It's been so hard to know what is safe or not safe but this course went all through this and made it so practical. I would definitely recommend to any instructor."
