The studio has a relaxing atmosphere that you don't often find in other places. I have already recommended Whitstable Wellness Centre to my friends and family
I am pleased with the class that I attend and feel very comfortable in the calming surroundings.

Postnatal Pilates can start 6 - 8 weeks after birth 8 - 13 weeks after c-section.

Antenatal Pilates with Andrea Creary Saturday 10.30 - 11.30am
During pregnancy the body experiences many hormonal and muscular changes which puts stress on the body and cause muscles to weaken, ligaments to stretch and joints to over load. The body becomes unbalanced, and the unbalanced body loses stability and strength. Pilates during pregnancy helps the body as it goes through these changes, improving posture, balance and muscle tone without placing placing further stress on the body. Pilates is an adaptive form if exercise, meaning that the body is assessed throughout each session and exercises are adaptive to suit individuals needs and comfort level. Antenatal Pilates benefits by realigning posture, helping to prevent pregnancy related back pain by stabilising the pelvis, spine and shoulders and maintains the integrity of the pelvic floor at the same time preparing the body physically for birth with the added benefit of meeting other expectant mothers.
