Who is the Pelvic Floor Information and Training Course for?

You are most likely to be a female in her child bearing years (but really, pelvic health is applicable to all adults so share this with your family!).

You want more than to be given a couple of exercises that you have to try and remember to do. You want to understand more about your body, why this is worth the effort, more detail on how to perform the exercises correctly and find out what you might have been doing wrong up to now which is stopping you seeing results or seemingly making things worse.

You want to feel in control of your body, knowledgeable that what you are doing is correct and to feel the results. You want to tackle or avoid incontinence, reduce pelvic and back pain associated with pregnancy, or restrengthen your pelvic floor after childbirth. You may even be approaching the menopause and want to get ahead.

This course really is suitable for every adult and while the emphasis is on the female body, the men in your lives will also benefit from it!

Your Instructor

Clare Jarvis

I have been practising Pilates for over 15 years, initially discovering it due to sciatica and long-term back pain I had been suffering with since a sporting accident in my early teens. I kept up the practice as it worked better than any other drugs or therapy at keeping the pain away.

I then decided to combine my skills at teaching English, with my love of Pilates and I knew I had found the right path for me. This experience led me to become a Teacher Trainer, instructing and examining would-be Pilates Instructors, and I love how I constantly learn from these students and keep my practice up to date through this role. I found the pre and post natal part of my training fascinating and went on to specialise in this area with further courses.

I love seeing Pilates make such an enormous difference to women at such a crucial time in their lives and having my own daughter in 2020 only served to confirm that this is my passion.
