PILATES

Imagine

Fridays, 1 – 2 pm

pay-per-session summer course, starting on 28 April and running until end June with a FREE trial session for first-timers

Run by Pilates Instructor Marie Mackay, this is a popular, effective, fun and baby-friendly course for all those that want to get back into – and maintain - shape quickly after having a baby. The benefits of Pilates classes are many. Designed specifically to target those problem areas that mothers face after pregnancy, these classes are conceived to firm-up + strengthen the body's core muscles in order to create a trimmer and sleeker silhouette. By creating a "girdle" around the middle you will have greater strength in the back + stomach muscles and will even increase arm strength to help cope with all the bending and lifting required with a new baby. Pilates will also help to improve posture, it can do wonders for overall conditioning as well as de-stressing and helping for relaxation.

Cost per session: EUR 15

Places limited so bookings essential. Please contact directly Marie.mackay.pilates@gmail.com, GSM: 0473 311911

Parenting calmly

Imagine

3, 11, 18, 31 May, 7, 14 June, 7.30 pm

Parents know the best way to treat their children. However, during a moment of heated emotions or tiredness, it is easy to forget all our knowledge and to start behaving in a reactive way - to shout at a child. We probably all shout at our children from time to time, the problem is when this type of communication becomes more regular.

This course is designed for parents who want to break a bad habit concerning their behavior with a child. It is for parents who would like to stop shouting at their child and instead start communicating in a different way; for parents who make fun of or spank their child and who want to stop; for parents with other habits that they wish to change into more positive behaviour.

As can be seen from the description above, the topic is quite precise. The seminars will involve working with your own feelings and reactions, both in the group and outside of it, sharing the experience with others and getting support from the group. By tackling the specific issue and by improving the behavior during heated emotions parents will learn to show more respect to their children.

Aiste Grubliauskiene is a Psychologist, graduated from Vilnius University, Lithuania, and with a Doctor’s degree from Leuven University, Belgium. Aiste consults children and their parents in Brussels.

Cost of a series of 6 two-hour seminars: 180 EUR (for a couple – 230 EUR) with the first session as a free trial. Depending on your insurance, reimbursement can be possible. The size of the group is going to be 4 - 6 participants.

Places are limited so booking is essential. To register for the group, please contact Aiste at aiste.grubliauskiene@gmail.com or +32 474 06 50 06.
