Antenatal Pilates

The Little Pilates Studio
Pregnancy is a special time in which your body has changing needs which are not accounted for in a general pilates class. This is why we run special antenatal Pilates classes for pregnant women in the second and third trimesters. Jennifer was the first instructor in the area to offer these classes and they have proved to be extremely successful, with women now returning for their 2nd pregnancies. These classes have fewer people then a general class and allow for closer attention to be paid to each client. Website

About East Greenwich

So named by Danish settlers, Greenwich means the 'green place on the bay'. The settlement later became known as East Greenwich to distinguish it from West Greenwich or Deptford Strond, the part of Deptford adjacent to the Thames, but the use of East Greenwich to mean the whole of the town of Greenwich died out in the 19th century. However, Greenwich was divided into the registration subdistricts of Greenwich East and Greenwich West from the beginning of civil registration in 1837, the boundary running down what is now Greenwich Church Street and Crooms Hill, although more modern references to "East" and "West" Greenwich probably refer to the areas east and west of the Royal Naval College and National Maritime Museum corresponding with the West Greenwich council ward.
