Description

Anita is a Level 3 Pilates Instructor who offers Pilates for children and young people (continued professional development: Pilates for Kids & Teens awarded by APPI). Anita holds a BA hons. in Youth and Community work and is also a mum of 2 little ones aged 4 and 6! She is passionate about making Pilates accessible for children through fun movement and games that promote balance, co-ordination, stability, strength and relaxation. It is so important for children to have opportunities to take part in a variety of physical activity, as supported by NHS recommendations that under 5's are physically active for at least 3 hours a day: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/physical-activity-guidelines-children-under-five-years/

Through her Pilates for infants classes, Anita hopes children will begin to develop positive body awareness whilst having fun, as well as learning skills they will want to use again outside the sessions.

Pilates helps to develop good postural and movement patterns which is extremely important for counteracting poor postural patterns prevalent in modern life through increased time spent hunched over devices, which can lead to long
term muscular imbalances.

Hope to you see you soon :)

You only need a small space with a mat/towel/rug for extra comfort along with a Pilates block/regular cushion for yourself and a teddy for your child(ren). Please wear comfy clothes (no shoes needed just socks or barefeet).
