The benefits of Diamond Pilates at Bodywise Derby

Lesley Moran has completed her Diamond Pilates training which enhanced her knowledge of pelvic floor conditions and how pilates can support recovery. She has also developed links with local specialist Physiotherapists to support women further and help them deal positively with the difficulties they are experiencing.

1 in 3 women experience some pelvic floor symptoms, it is really common, but its NOT  normal and there is alot you can learn and do to improve your situation. So if any of the following symptoms apply to you, it is a sign that your pelvic floor muscles, like any other, need a little work:

  • Leaking urine , even a small amount infrequently
  • Leaking on laughing , coughing , running, jumping, lifting
  • A sense of urgency and needing to go to the loo alot
  • A sense of heaviness or discomfort
  • Preoccupation with toilets and not going places if you feel there isn't a loo nearby


Diamond Pilates is great for post natal women, to strengthen their core and floor, but also for women of any age who are suffering with pelvic floor weakness and symptoms. It really can help you feel;

  • Less worried and more confident to engage fully in your daily activities
  • Stronger, fitter, better, more confident with no leaking !
  • More in control, doing something positive to improve your health and symptoms
  • Longer term health benefits such as greater ease of movement, strength with flexibility and calmer in mind?
  • Less pre occupied with toilets !

All this in a really supportive environment .

So be brave, come and learn more to understand how small changes can make a big impact and have huge benefits.
