    Default New to London, questions about water exercise classes, pregnancy pilates/yoga, physio

    Hi everyone,

    My family and I moved to London a few days ago. I'm 6 months pregnant and was wondering if anyone knows whether there are any water fitness classes and pilates/yoga classes (all specifically for pregnant women) in London?

    Also, can anyone recommend a physio specialising in pregnancy, or suggest the best place to find one?

    Thank you in advance!

    Welcome! What area of London are you located in - maybe we can make recommendations of places that are close by to you.

    If you're ever looking for a good pre-natal massage therapist - google “Danielle Morley RMT“ - she is absolutely awesome! I used her for both pregnancies

    Life with Baby has a lot of classes but not water ones. I've only been to the baby massage class, but they charge based on each class or a monthly fee for as many classes/programs as you want.

    LM has the baby wearing meetings there 1 Friday a month.

    Maybe a gym might have some I'm not sure (I know the Athletic Club does not since I went on leave from there for pregnancy since they didn't offer any programs.

    I was coming on here to recommend Life With Baby as well. And they actually do have a water fitness class. I just finished up my 8 week session of the Prenatal Aquafit class. I loved it! If I remember correctly the next Aquafit class starts in September. They also have prenatal Yogo, Pilates and Fitness classes.

    There's also a few places that offer baby salsa once the babe comes... lots of fun!

    Life with baby does all kinds of prenatal excerise classes. Aqua fit too!

    As for physiotherapy, I would recommend Kubet at Core Fmily Heath on Richmond street. She also does pre and postnatal pilates which would be covered by your heath insurance company if you have one

    Hello

    Taking a chance here... Anyone know of a place for aquafit in London? I'm also new and just over 11 weeks pregnant and would love to do that... I checked the websites mentioned here but the URLs don't work anymore.

    Thanks ladies!

    Hi,
    I would check Spectrum - google London Spectrum and you will find all the city programs. Check under swimming - at the end of the magazine, and under adults.

    The only places I know that definitely have aquafit classes are gyms - Movati (2 locations on Wonderland), Goodlife, YMCA. You would have to pay a membership fee for the year to join, though.

    A great place to check out is Rebirth Wellness downtown on Central. They may also head out to a pool to teach aquafit!
