CREATIVE ACTION SQUAD FAQ
Who can take part in Creative Action Squad sessions?
Sessions cater for women who:
- Would like to start up, get back into, or maintain an exercise routine
- Want motivation and support from like-minded individuals in a positive environment
- Want to improve their fitness and tone up
- Any exercise level, any experience level, doesn’t matter if you’ve got good coordination or not. As long as you’re keen to give things a go and open to try new things – the aim is to just get moving!
Can my children come with me?
Babies and toddlers are welcome to come to most training sessions at no extra cost.
If you choose to bring your child, feel free to bring a pram, bouncer, play gym or anything else that may keep your child entertained. While I do my best to keep an eye on any kids with us, please understand that your child/ren are your responsibility while you are training and it’s good to be mindful of other participants’ Squad session experience as well.
When and where are the training sessions?
Please see my timetable along with more info on Creative Action Squad sessions here. It’s important that you book into the sessions you would like to attend each week so I can contact you if there are any changes to the session such as venue.
How long are the training sessions?
Group classes are approximately 45 minutes (includes stretching at the end). I would love you to stay for the whole thing, but if you’re just getting back into training you need to listen to your body so just do whatever you can and aim to build on it the next time you come.
What do I need to bring?
For all of the group classes:
- An exercise mat
- A workout towel
- A drink bottle of water
- Any relevant medication (such as an asthma inhaler)
- Wraps and/or gloves for boxing if you own your own (optional)
If you are planning to bring your child, please bring anything they might need to stay comfortable and entertained during the workout such as a pram or their favourite toys. Please no electronic/loud toys during the yoga classes!
I’ve just had a baby, when can I get started?
As a qualified prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher (and as a mum myself), I have a good understanding of what happens to the body during and after pregnancy! I consider safe training to be a top priority. If you’ve recently had a baby your body has been through a lot; because of this I require clearance from your midwife, GP or medical practitioner that you’ve been given the official okay to resume exercise.
Most medical professionals recommend to wait until at least 6 weeks after giving birth, however as every pregnancy and birth is different this can vary. Please note that I won’t take on clients who are less than 6 weeks postpartum – longer if you have had a caesarean section or complicated delivery. Please listen to your body; don’t force yourself back into exercising if you’re still not feeling ready for it.
