Carly, our Pilates expert, lives with type 1 herself and loves the low impact nature of Pilates exercises. She tells us she finds Pilates a great way to get started with your health and fitness goals and tells us that she finds blood glucose management a little simpler than with more intensive exercise regime (though as we know - everyone's response to exercise is different!) Plus, you get to exercise with other members of the tribe. The only challenge will be knowing who's CGM is beeping at any one time!

At the 45–60-minute sessions, you can expect:

  • Pilates targets the entire body to improve flexibility, posture, and strength,
  • Our Mat Pilates class will focus on exercises that lengthen and strengthen muscles, as well as targeting the core using bodyweight and occasional props,
  • While Pilates is low impact and gentle, don’t let that fool you... we can promise you will work muscles you never knew you had,
  • We will also work on breathing techniques and mindfulness, and
  • Your Pilates teacher has type 1, so she truly ‘gets’ what it’s like to exercise with type 1 and can guide you through lived experience.
