“I would recommend this course to anyone! It’s fantastic for bringing awareness to how we live our life and how this impacts on our bodies. Helen is excellent at explaining the biomechanics of our bodies without blinding you with science! It helps you to understand how to help yourself using everyday tasks! Simple and effective! Very relaxing and great for releasing stress! Give it a try, your body will thank you for it. ”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to do the Intro to Natural Movement Workshop first?

Yes!  you do, this is not your usual exercise class.  There are a lot of concepts to explore, practical elements to try and you will want time to talk around them.  When you discover why it is important to move naturally, it will make the learning how and where, much easier (and more fun!).

I can’t commit to a weekly class – now what?

We understand. Life is busy!  The beauty with the natural movement concept is it will fit into your life easily (once you know how).  Due to demand there is now a Move Well Monthly Class that you can drop into, whenever life creates the space.  Just make sure to book in advance so you are not left disappointed.

I’ve signed up – what happens next?

Once your booking and payment have been received, you will be sent a link to a secure online health screening form.  Please complete fully then ‘SEND’ and I will see you in class soon.

Is it all fit, young ones in class?

No! This class really is for Every Body! Whatever, size, shape and ability!  You are unique - no-one knows your body better than you do.  Discover how to listen to your body and meet it where it is.  There are no judgements, no demands – simply a group of people together learning how to move their bodies better. 

I would have to miss a few dates – would it be better to wait for the next course?

Booking on a course guarantees your place in class.  Once you have let that place go, there is no guarantee you will get back on – future courses are offered to current course clients first before any available spaces are released via the website.  There may be a place, but equally there may not be! It is entirely up to you. Don’t forget there is always the option to join Helen for the Move Well Monthly Class.

I find it hard to get to the floor – do I have too?

No but after your first course I bet this is something you will be well on your way to be doing!  Helen will show you how to move better so that you can get to the floor and feel more confident in doing so. Remember, for an independent life, getting up and down to the floor is an important skill!

I have lower back problems, will this class help?

Absolutely!  The Move Well Series is made for you!  Your body is simply telling the story of how you have moved up until now.  Your body loves to move (although it might not feel like it just now).  Once you start to offer your body gentle, nourishing movement you will start to move freely and move well.  You will be encouraged to work at your own pace, listen to your own body and will be taught how to modify so things are safe for you at every step. 

I still have pelvic girdle pain (SPD) from pregnancy - will this class be suitable?

Yes!  This class has helped Post Natal mama’s to either significantly reduce or relieve SPD altogether (sometimes years after giving birth). You might be interested to know that there is also a Pelvic Matters workshop and class series that will be launching in 2019 for those with or wanting to prevent Pelvic Dysfunction.   Please know it is never too late and there is always something that you can do.

I have a Diastasis Recti (Abdominal Separation) – will this class help?

Yes. Absolutely!  By discovering how you are moving now (and why!) helps you to understand why you have Diastasis Recti.  Learning how to align your body and breathe better your core will be able to function better.

I have (think I have) a Pelvic Floor Dysfunction – will this class help?

If you suspect or know that you have a hernia, prolapse or that ‘something doesn’t feel right’ please see your Doctor first for a diagnosis.  You may need to be referred to a Women’s Health Physio (WHP) first.  The Move Well Series is likely to be safe for you but it is best is you have a diagnosis so that we make sure everything you do is safe and working towards your recovery.  We are very happy to work alongside your Doctor, WHP or other Health Professional.  You might also be interested in the Pelvic Matters workshop and class series that is going to be launched in 2019 specific to those who have or want to prevent Pelvic Dysfunctions.

I have never been to a class before – what do I need to bring?

Just yourself!  Getting to class can often be the hardest thing – to make it easier the studio is fully kitted out with mats, bolsters, blocks and straps to ensure you can modify where you need to for a comfortable class.
