Interviewing Tash on her pregnancy and Pilates journey.

"The Pilates movement helped A LOT when I was pregnant!"

1. What made you decide to start Pilates of all exercises and how long have you been doing it?

Tash: I decided to do Pilates because of my back, neck and posture. I struggled with a lot of headaches and a stiff back and neck. I was recommended Pilates and I've been doing it on and off for 5 years now.

2. How has Pilates changed your way of living/your body? Especially with your line of work and pre and post-pregnancy?

Tash: I'm a jewellery designer and maker so I sit in a poor bent-over position for long hours while working with fine details. Pilates has changed my way of work because my core is stronger and my posture is better while I sit at my jewellery workstation. Pilates has helped me strengthen all the muscles I need to make my work more comfortable and has given me more awareness whilst doing so. The strength and awareness are even more evident in my pregnancy journey. Having a stronger back and core really helped me towards the end of the pregnancy when I got bigger. I had no discomfort or pain during my pregnancy thanks to Pilates. I did classes right up until a week before giving birth. Once my son was born my recovery was so much easier and faster and I started my classes again at 7 weeks Postpartum which was incredible.

3. In 3 words describe your feelings about Pilates?

Tash: Necessary! Game changer!

4. What is your favourite exercise and small equipment/apparatus?

Tash: The small ball and pelvic curls.

5. In one sentence, convince someone to start Pilates.

Tash: Johlet sells it best, and like she always tells us. You are here because one of the reasons is that we want to age North and not South😉! Also, it helps with mobility and back pain.

6. Testimonial:

Tash: Johlet is very knowledgeable, and her classes are interactive and fun. During my pregnancy, I always felt safe and knew I was in the best hands possible. I could not have gone through my pregnancy without her classes.

7. What are your 2023 Pilates goals?

Tash: In 2023 I want to continue getting stronger, especially in my upper back and core. I am 37 and want to have another baby I want to stay strong to be able to go through the pregnancy with ease.

Yippie Yay - we are so glad that Tash is loving her classes with Johlet and we are super excited to watch you get stronger for baba number 2.
