This is the perfect level for me at 6 weeks post partum after a caesarian section. I didn't feel any pain at all around my scar but still felt that I was making a start back into exercising and trying to get some tone back into my abs. Loved the arm stretches too.

Hi Olivia. Thanks for your lovely comment. I am really glad to hear you enjoyed the class and that it felt like it was pitched at exactly the right level for you. I hope you'll find the time to keep taking the classes and that you'll feel great in both body and mind for taking them :) Best wishes, Amit

Hi, this is very confusing for me. I was taught to not do any forward flexion / curl ups while still having Diastasis Recti (abs separation) and instead focus on core breath aka diaphragmatic breathing recruiting the four core muscles : diaphragm, pelvic floor, multifidus and Transverse abdominus. Thanks

Hi Safiah. Thanks for your message. Different Pilates teachers use different techniques and follow different protocols so I can understand the confusion. The technique used in this class is taught by Carolyne Anthony from in her further education courses which are recognised and recommended all over the world.
If you don't feel comfortable with this exercise or with any of the exercises, please just skip them.
I hope this helps and would be happy to answer any other questions you might have. Simply email me at

Although I am 17 weeks postpartum, I have just discovered your site and have decided to start right from the beginning. I really enjoyed my first class with my little boy at my side. Thank you!
