Baby Sensory

 

Our multi-award winning classes will introduce your baby to a world of sensory exploration. Where the two of you can relax, have fun and share in each other’s delight. For ours is magical world, full of glowing balls, light shows, puppets, bubbles, rainbows, petals, massage, signing and songs. Imagination is a vital part of childhood. And together we’ll dance in the snow or dive under the waves, trek through a rainforest and sing the shanties of sea pirates. We have a vast wealth of equipment and songs - many unique to us - and you’ll never experience the same lesson twice.

 

What also makes our programme so groundbreaking is that every element has been meticulously designed with your baby’s development in mind. Created by Dr Lin Day, it’s the result of a lifetime’s work and study and testament to her overriding passion to inspire and educate children and support their parents. We love sharing our knowledge with you, regularly explaining what we’re doing and why. For the first year of your baby’s life is one of the most important, when, soon after birth, the brain starts creating two million new connections every second! And understanding more about your child’s development will really enhance what’s already a very special time. You can join us at any point, and we’d encourage you to begin as soon as you feel able. Because routine is important, every session is structured to follow the natural play-rest-play cycle of babies. What’s great about this is that each week you’ll have the opportunity to chat with others in a relaxed manner. Which is brilliant for forging friendships as the weeks go on, sharing tips and experiences at a time when you’ll probably really appreciate the support. We’ve done the research; so you can enjoy the fun

Pilates

 

The Douglas Method is delivered through one to one sessions but more uniquely within a class situation.   Typically, Pilates, Personal Training and other types of fitness classes do not give corrective exercises to participants. Instead, they try to accommodate a range of problems by offering modifications and adaptations (some of which can cause other issues).

                                                   

The result of this is that you do not progress beyond a certain level.                                                      

The Douglas Method is all about understanding the root of your injuries, and other physical conditions, correcting where possible, and from there helping you progress to optimum physical function.  

               

Due to the nature of this approach, “drop-in” places are not available in classes, and clients are required to sign up for a 10 week rolling programme     (This also means that your place is guaranteed even where I have a waiting list for class places.)  The fee of £70 payable at the first class, by cash or cheque, whichever you prefer.  You can join the classes at any time,  but *please check availability* with me first!

 

Please also be aware that, depending on your fitness issues, you may need the in-depth attention of one-to-one consultation time, rather than (or prior to) participating in a class – the best thing to do is to have a chat with me about it and we can decide together what the best way forward is.

 

Hope this gives you the information you  need, more is available at my website at: www.douglaspilates.co.uk  but please don’t hesitate to email or call me on 07704216645 if you have any questions, concerns, or simply prefer to talk to a real person!
