Abdominal Scar Massage Therapy.

If you have had abdominal surgery for C-Section, Hysterectomy, Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), or numerous other procedures this offering is for you.

Newly healed or old established scars can cause adhesions that you can see on the surface but also ones that you can't see, deeper under the skin which can cause pain, lack of sensation and inhibit movement.

In these sessions I focus on the whole body, not just the scar.

Massage can improve the appearance, the sensation and the function of the scar and the surrounding tissue.

The treatments are gentle and reduce pain and tightness and encourage healing.

60 minute Scar Treatment £60
90 minute Scar Treatment £90
3 session package (1 x 90 mins & 2 x 60 mins) £180

Alternatively if you are looking for a full body massage, whether it's to ease tension and aches or to work on a ni**le in your body, then I offer these in various single sessions or packages.

You're amazing Priya! Thank you for the massage - it did hurt, but I can feel you've unknotted some real problem areas and balanced me out ###
I love Priya. I first did antenatal pilates with her, then post-natal. She's also been incredibly helpful when I had a neck issue, sorting it out initially and then giving me ongoing exercises which completely resolved it. Her clinical knowledge is excellent and she is highly skilled. I would highly recommend her for both pilates and for sports massage therapy.
Hello Priya, I’ve just been diagnosed (over the phone with my gp) with sciatica. I’ve never had problems with lower back etc. I exercise daily for the last 4 years. I do suffer from injuries quite often. Would you suggest your Pilates classes to help with sciatica and keep fit? I’ll be having physio tomorrow. I’m devastated about not being to workout and petrified about putting on weight as I’m already overweight. Thank you x
Thanks for the lovely card and chocolate I scoffed it after Mandie's class last week. Happy Christmas guys x🎅🏻🎄☃️
❤️ My gift to you ❤️

Whether you’re expecting, have just given birth, gave birth months or years ago, are a mother, father and/or work in the birthing world my gift to you this festive season is to introduce you to these wonderful small and local businesses in Hampshire.

Just like each one of you is unique, so is each and every person who supports birthing people, their birth partners and families and we all share the same passion and goal: to be there for you at this pivotal time in your life.

Take a look at what these wonderful humans are all about on their pages & websites and do get in touch with them to find out more, I’m positive they’ll be happy to help in any way they can.

Hi Priya
Hope you and your 3 are staying healthy and happy in lockdown?
I’m working from home with my 3 so have no time and an ever worsening back. I can sort of remember a few of the stretches but could you possibly recommend a couple I could do 2/3 times a day to help with my lower back pain?
Many thanks
Alex
Love this.

Strong does not mean Functional.

We've all seen the guys who over train their muscles in they gym but can't bend to move, yes they are super strong, but they have limited functional movement and regularly poor posture.

All muscles need to be able to glide and slide, contract and relax......even the ones in your pelvic floor.

Thanks Pilates with Priya
DIASTASIS RECTI

“Your inner strength is your outer foundation” - Alan Rufus

July is International Diastasis Awareness Month and as it’s something I had myself following the birth of my second baby I thought I would help spread a bit more awareness.

So what is ‘diastasis recti’? It’s basically separated stomach muscles. During pregnancy, the muscles that run down the middle of your stomach can separate. As your baby grows in your womb the muscles weaken and lengthen.

There is some great information to be found in various places on this subject including the NHS website under ‘Your Post-pregnancy body’, @pelvicroar or @burrell_education with the holistic core restore programme to name a few. You’ve undoubtedly got a local Holistic Core Restore coach near you too, look into the course whatever age your children are, 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years or more! I know of three wonderful women who run this course and who can help you: Pilates with Priya , Liz Knowles: Women’s Health & Fitness Physio , Birth & Body with Victoria

I only found out I had a diastasis when I had back pain months after the birth of my second baby. If you’ve recently had a baby, please ask for your GP to check for a diastasis at your postnatal check. If we know what to ask about, there’s more chance we’ll be checked for it.

Women need to get support sooner than months after birth.

Strengthening your pelvic floor and core has so many benefits too...

- Improving your bladder and bowel function
- Improving recovery from childbirth
- Increasing sexual sensation
To name a few…

Please go and see a Women’s Health Physio, they’re brilliant and they will show you safe exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home… YOU are important too, you need to be on your ‘TO DO’ list too.

Want to see what our classes are like? Here’s last nights class sped up super fast!

Pilates is amazing at keeping your body mobile, functional and strong. It helps you work on your balance, breath, and of course works your core too!

We use small equipment and I teach in the studio plus over zoom.

Want to join us? We have classes for all levels and are taking new people!

Never done pilates before? You can book a 30 min induction session with me to go through the basics and get you ready for a class.

Some non pilates news! I have a ring on my finger 💍

The last 5 1/2 months have been a whirlwind where I’ve met the most amazing man, been swept off my feet and has felt like I’ve been in a fairytale.

Taking some time out this weekend to drink bubbly and smile a lot 😂 look forward to being back to normal Pilates ASAP!

Enjoy the long weekend x

Whilst I was away from the studio last week, we still fitted in a little Pilates now and again.

Love how my biggest one will usually join me (though she is getting heavier to plank with!).

The studio is closed till Tuesday. Enjoy your Easter break ###

Breathing is something we all do, all the time…. Yet the way we did it can make such a huge difference to our bodies and mental health too.

Here’s a few tips on getting connected to that deep breath.

1. Try it seated on your sitting bones. Wrap your hands around your ribs and breath into your hands.
2. Lie down with hands on our ribs and see if you can feel them expand as you inhale and fall back as you exhale.
3. Can you also feel the rise and fall of your pelvis? The breath should go down deep, which is how the core is activated and released too.
4. How’s your lower back? That should expand too as you inhale.

Love you to try this and comment below how you found it.

Out of office/studio this week, finding the sun and having some very much needed down time.

Classes are on a reduced schedule but still running, the lovely Alex is holding the fort and I’ll be popping on to teach online from Spain too!

Now pass the Sangria?!

Grab a band (and some tropical leggings) to join in with these delicious moves.

Lengthen that leg out of the hip socket, stretch through the knee and use that core to hold your pelvis stable.

Enjoy!

It’s been 7 years since the garage become the studio!

Wow how things have changed over that time, but one thing hasn’t. Pilates is still amazing!

You can come join on in person or online for classes, whether you are pregnant, postnatal or neither!

I also teach specialist pelvic floor rehab classes and help ladies with c section scar massage, diastasis recti healing and offers sports massage!

There are so many more ways to look after your pelvic floor than just squeezing it.

As women, I really feel we need to get educated on this part of our body. Knowledge can definitely be power!

That’s why when I work with people I like to talk them through how different movement patterns help and hinder, how nutrition and hydration can impact it and how to breathe for your pelvic floor, why rest is important and how stress impact you too.

You can join me on a 6 week course exploring movement and all these things plus more in May. It’s called the Everywoman course and the link is in my bio or pop to my website to sign up.

Need some neck and shoulder love? Try these….

Rolling like a ball is one of those exercises that always looks easy, but to really get it right it’s anything but easy!

Here are 4 variations. 

1. Prep work. A tiny rock. Try to initiate this from your centre like you are being pushed through your belly button. 
2. Extend the leg and let the lever help you out. Do make sure your lower back is rounded and you only roll onto your shoulders, not your neck. 
3. All tucked into a ball. Use those abdominals to bring you up. It’s actually hard work to stay totally tucked into place. 
4. Rolling with a ball! Try at your peril 😂😂😂

Activate your core whilst pulling on a band…A little flow from last weeks classes!

Your core helps you balance, it helps your stability, it helps you move. It’s not just all about sit ups in our Pilates classes but building functional bodies.

Try these series out thinking about your shoulder position, your core, your pelvis stability and the length of your spine…

You can join us in person or online!

Get those gluts fired up with these moves!

Gluts are something most of us need to work on. They are a big group of muscles and we need them functional to stop our lower back taking the load.

Don’t forget to stretch out after too!

Let me know what other videos you would like!

Kegels are not always enough.

Whilst it is important to be doing them the pelvic floor is a lot more complex. It needs movement, release, breathwork, nutrition, hydration.

So if those kegels are not getting you where you need to get to…

Come book on the next @holisticcorerestore EVERYWOMAN course with me. Starts 6th March 7.45pm on zoom or in person.

Lots of light bulb moments.
We move.
We breathe.
We educate ourselves about our bodies.

Working your pelvic floor doesn’t have to just be lying on the floor, breathing and squeezing to stop you leaking when sneezing 🤧

Like my rhyme?!

In the Everywoman course we start with the breath, work on posture and technique in each exercise, building up to functional exercises that work that pelvic floor in all ranges of movement.

You can join me for this 6 week course over zoom or in person. Next course starts in March on Mon evenings.

DM or book via the website

Anyone else have these days? It was the theme of classes tonight. I love the fact in our community we can share these things.

Feeling the overwhelm today. I know I’m stressed when my kids look at me a certain way and tell me so….

Or I forget what I’ve walked into a room for, drop the balls I’m juggling and just don’t get life done.

It’s ok. We all have days like this. Tomorrow is a new one!

Pilates and movement helps chill me out and does make me a generally nicer person 😂

22/01/2022

The Saw is generally an exercise not best loved in my studio 😂

There are loads do variations and as also in Pilates, always a way to modify the moves.

I’ve found this exercise HARD and I’ve still not perfected it. My key thoughts are more core and less hip flexors.

Here are some variations that are less ouchy on the pesky hip flexors, to help you build up.

Love to hear how you find these.

Your pelvic floor needs this!

This week I started week 1 of the @holisticcorerestore EVERYWOMAN course with a new group of ladies.

Some have had babies and want to rehab their bodies and pelvic floor.

Some had babies a long time ago and are noticing differences in the peri/menopause transition.

One thing that stood out was the lack of knowledge on how to actually do a pelvic floor exercise/kegel correctly.

“I’ve been doing them wrong all these years”

Over the next 6 weeks I can’t wait to travel with these ladies on their pelvic floor journey! Using all these bits of kit.

Want to join my next course? DM me.
