ABOUT BETH FROM B WELL PILATES
Passionate about improving wellbeing through Pilates
Beth is a Level 3 Mat Pilates qualified instructor with additional professional training and qualifications in prenatal and postnatal fitness instruction.
Having always loved Pilates, Beth was also inspired by her husbands work as a Physiotherapist in sports & injury rehabilitation, seeing how closely it works with Pilates to both heal and prevent injuries.
Beth feels able to identify with many of her clients:
“I’ve previously worked in a desk job and felt what it was doing to my posture, the back ache and headaches it was causing me. I’ve enjoyed running but used to lack joint stability pre-Pilates and it used to cause me pain in my knees.
Over the course of 6 years, my body went through the rigours of 3 pregnancies and childbirth, not to mention the physical demands of motherhood – lifting, shifting, being used as a human climbing frame!
Pilates has been my saviour – it keeps me strong to enjoy life and feel better, move better - gives me headspace - time to focus my mind and body. I love being able to share that with other people as a Pilates Teacher.”
Beth provides mixed ability, antenatal and postnatal Pilates classes in Brislington and Keynsham and one to ones in and around Bristol.
Book with B Well Pilates and Wellbeing to feel stronger and better through Pilates in an unintimidating environment with someone who is genuinely passionate about helping you achieve your best and most of all, feel great.

Get back to exercising safely post pregnancy with specially adapted Postnatal Pilates - you can bring your baby too!
Why do postnatal Pilates?
It’s a gentle and considered way to return to exercise post birth – working on regaining your strength from the inside outwards! Classes will work on regaining core strength gently, not a sit up or crunch in sight & no strong abdominal exercises until it is safe to do so. Classes involve a free diastasis recti check to ensure any exercise progressions are safe for you to perform.
There are so many reasons to do Pilates once you are ready to return to exercise after having your baby! Some of these include:
Regain and strengthen your stretched core muscles including your pelvic floor
Help heal / reduce post birth stress incontinence
Help heal any Diastasis Recti (separation of abs) if present
Correction of muscle imbalances
Increase muscle strength, tone & endurance
Better form & strength for performing functional tasks including the rigours of motherhood (those car seats and pushchairs are heavy!)
Increase energy levels, boost relaxation & reduce stress and anxiety
