Our Philsophy

Once upon a time women were told to ‘rest and put their feet up’ throughout their pregnancy. At Baby A-Wake, that’s the one fairy tale you will never hear us tell! Every year, new research helps to clarify how beautifully matched pregnancy and exercise can be. When you are pregnant however there are so many more things to consider - most importantly the fact that you are exercising, not just for one life, but for two!  Your exercise programme therefore has to be specifically tailored and taught by people who not only have the knowledge and experience but also people who truly understand and care. Through our classes we aim to create an overwhelming feeling of wellness, life and vitality that will empower you to feel confident, in control and safe. They can also enable you to feel fitter and healthier during your pregnancy and postnatal years than ever before. We also believe that what you can learn from Baby A-Wake will serve you well now, and for the rest of your life.

This unique concept devised by Jane is currently exclusive to this Timetable. Practiced by celebrities such as Lorraine Kelly and Kimberly Wyatt, it blows the socks off any other Pilates programme. On our timetable are classes devised specifically for women – if you are postnatal you should try these or go to our Postnatal Pilates classes first. We also run 6 week courses for men and have a more advanced Pilates Flow class called Pilates Flow Express. Pilates Flow follows a set pattern of movements over a period of 10-12 weeks. The sequence changes around the beginning of a new season; The Spring Flow sequence starts in March, Summer in late May/early June, Autumn in September and Winter in late November.  You can however start at any time. Your teacher will guide you through. Click here or on the Pilates Flow tab for more information and Book in for your FREE TRIAL as soon as you can, and while there is still space!

So this is me - Jane! And I am the Director of Baby A-Wake, often to be found galavanting around, doing extra curricular stuff on telly or in mags. My heart however is very much at home, teaching all you gorgeous lot in one of our lovely little venues between Tooting Bec and Clapham Common. Failing that, you're likely to see me in Waitrose or Sainbury's or Tesco's (I'll do any), battling with a shopping trolly and two maniac kids. The reason Baby A-

Wake exists is because when I was pregnant with my son Daniel (now 11) 

people would stare at me in the gym as if I was some weirdo! When he was 

born, there was absolutely nowhere I could safely exercise with him in tow. 

had already trained as a Pre and Postnatal specialist with Fit to Deliver TM  who are world leaders in the field. Their style of training sparked huge interest for me as their approach was to not just look at the physiological effects of pregnancy and exercise but to also marvel at how amazing and wonderfully aligned they are!  Fact is – pregnancy and exercise do go together – you just need to know exactly how and why. I started to study in depth and became the training provider for Fit to Deliver in the UK.  A large part of my knowledge has come through not only personal experience but also through the experiences of the 100’s  - probably now 1000’s of women who have come 

through our programme. Many of those women have stayed with us, which 

why we now provide classes for all women…and men too! (Primarily long 

suffering Dads – but anyone is welcome!) Baby A-Wake and Pilates Flow classes provide a place where you can gain expert knowledge regarding 

exercise in pregnancy, post birth or functional health and be able to safely 

exercise, knowing you are getting the right kind of help, in an environment 

where no one is scared of any amount of baby talk!

I have been working in the fitness industry for over 12 years. I have a true 

passion for fitness and continue to further my qualifications and training as a personal trainer and pre and postnatal specialist.  My style of training pre 

children was fast, military, the 'beast you' style work out. 5 months in to my 

pregnancy with my daughter (now 5) I ran a half marathon. It took me a little 

longer to get back in to exercise after she was born however. It was hard 

trying to find a class where I could take her along but also where I was getting 

the best form of exercise for me. (Being a fitness trainer you become very fussy). This is when I met the amazing Jane Wake. I too was her client and she very much helped me get my body and more importantly my mind back after having a baby. The thing that stood out for me with Baby A-Wake was the knowledge the teachers held and the importance of starting back slowly and safely with correct technique and gaining the strength before moving on to more strenuous exercise. The fact that all the teachers have such a good knowledge helped me discover that I actually had a thyroid condition. The groups were always open and friendly and I met some great friends.  My view on training styles changed and, although I still like to work hard, my approach is very different now! I was incredibly honored to be asked to teach for Baby A-Wake and be a part of a fantastic team of teachers. I now have 3 children - 5 years to 5 months! When I am not working you will often see me running around one of the local parks or most likely in Dee light bakery in Balham, having a coffee and an amazing cake whilst trying to manage my 3 who are very determined and strong willed. (I do not know who they get that from!)

Our Testimonials

After I had given birth to my first baby I was keen to get back into shape as soon as possible. I was breastfeeding and exhausted after weeks of interrupted sleep, so bearing this in mind, I wanted advice as to how to best achieve this from a true professional who understood what I was going though.

 

Baby A-Wake was the perfect solution for me, as not only could I bring my baby to the classes, but I felt that I was being properly looked after in terms of the right type and intensity of exercise as well as nutritional guidance. The classes are small, personal and unpretentious. My teacher, Jane was also great at motivating me, so after each session I felt as if I'd had a proper workout. This gave me a lot of extra energy (which I sorely needed!) and gradually got me back to a similar weight to what I'd been pre pregnancy. I would strongly recommend Baby A-Wake to any expecting or new mum.

 

Nicoline Sandwith, 

Body Back after Baby

I've always exercised regularly and was really keen to continue throughout my pregnancy.

I started Baby A-Wake classes when I was 4 months pregnant. The classes really helped me to be certain that I was excercising correctly and talk about any issues that I or the other girls had. It was a great way to meet other mums-to-be and be forced to do my pelvic floors! As a result of staying fit throughout my pregnancy, I regained my pre-pregnancy shape within a few months of giving birth.

 

Laura Chamberlain, 

Preganancy Pilates

I was struggling in my first couple of months of pregnancy with sickness but still wanted to try and do some exercise, so I decided to check this one out.

I've really enjoyed it. It has helped me to gain great results and was very good for my posture during my pregnancy. Jane, Baby A-Wake teacher, played an immense part in my experience throughout the pre natal classes. She filled me with confidence and calmed my fears for the big day with her guidance and advice.

 

Silvia Samporaghi,

Pregancy

I started Baby A-Wake classes when I was 4 months pregnant.

I was able to keep exercising (safely) while I was pregnant and start again with post natal classes only weeks after giving birth. It made sure that I didn't loose my fitness and motivated me to start exercising again as well as getting me back to my pre-pregnancy shape. It was great that I could take Emily along to the classes with me - I think she enjoyed it too!
