I am a community rehab Physiotherapist, a Pilates Instructor and a Yoga Teacher. I offer Physio-led Pilates and Hatha Yoga classes and 1:1 sessions. I have learned a lot about our amazing bodies and also about the health challenges that sometimes have to be faced. I apply this knowledge when instructing Pilates moves and Yoga poses and can confidently adapt any exercises and offer variations so that “every body” can do Pilates or Yoga. I also believe in having fun, being happy and being kind to ourselves and to others. Both my Pilates and Yoga classes aim to leave the person feeling energised, balanced, stronger and more relaxed.

Mother and Baby Pilates class @ White Hall, Tribe Porty
Feb 21 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

The main benefit of Pilates is that it targets the exact muscles and functions that can be a problem during pregnancy and after birth, in a safe way.

Doing regular Pilates will help:

Strengthen your abdominals muscles, which equips your body better to cope with the strains caused by the weight of your growing baby. Hormones make the tissues (ligaments) that connect your bones more pliable in pregnancy, making you more prone to injury
Reduce signs of back pain, by exercising the deepest abdominals muscles that stabilise your back and pelvis. Weak muscles can lead to back or pelvic pain.
Strengthen your pelvic floor, which will help to support your bowel, bladder and uterus (womb) as your baby grows and moves down. This may prevent you from leaking urine when you cough or sneeze.
Improve balance, as you may feel a little more clumsy, or that your balance isn’t as good as usual, in pregnancy. Pilates exercises strengthen your core and may make you more stable when you walk as your bump grows.
Take the strain off your back and pelvis, by using positions such as going on your hands and knees, which is a great position for pregnancy. Towards the end of your pregnancy, it may also help to get your baby into the right position for birth.
Relax and control your breathing, which is important for pregnancy and labour.
Exercise in general is good for you during and Post pregnancy. You should aim to do both aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking or swimming, and muscle-strengthening exercise, such as Pilates.

Upcycled Bookbinding class
Feb 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join me for a weekly dose of creativity at Tribe Porty and learn a range of bookbinding skills in this 5 week Upcycled Bookbinding class.

Every Thursday evening you’ll get hands on with a new bookbinding technique using everyday materials, including card, leather and pleather reminants, fabric offcuts, decorative papers, buttons, beads and ribbons to make your books functional and fabulous. You’ll leave each class with a finished book ready to be filled with whatever takes your fancy – from sketching and poetry, to notes and ‘to do’ lists.

I’ll bring all the materials you need each week and there’ll be lots of opportunity to personalise to your books, which also make great gifts if you have any birthdays or special occasions coming up!

I’m passionate about repurposing materials and making the craft of bookbinding fun and accessable – so expect an informal atmosphere, lots of guidance and a cuppa to sip while you stitch! I’ll also include a bookbinding starter kit for you to take away with you, which includes all the tools you need to make more books at home – it’s an addictive craft – you’ve been warned!

I will cover the following techniques in this 5 week block, making books in a range of sizes (from A7-A6, portrait and landscape):

French link stitch binging
Concertina binding
Leather or pleather kettle-stitch/long stitch binding
Leather or pleather cross stitch binding
Fabric covered case binding

This class is suitable for bookbinding beginners as well as those who have dabbled in bookbinding before, and is for adults only (18+). Here’s what one of my previous participants had to say about taking part –

“I absolutely loved taking part in 5 workshops of Bookbinding with Cass. Such a well-organised event, containing such a wide range of materials, allowing our creative minds to go wild! Cass was very encouraging of this, very clear with her instructing, also calm and patient, allowing us to go at our own pace. By the end, I left with 5 very interesting, beautifully designed, different types of books that I can’t help carrying around so I can show them off – I still can’t believe I actually made them! I would highly recommend this course, especially for those who are looking to learn a new skill in a very fun and productive environment.”

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch at – cassbarron.cb@gmail.com. You can check out some of the work made in my bookbinding classes on my Bookbinding with Cass Facebook page or via my Instagram account.

**Spaces on this class are limited and there will be no refunds or transfers once a booking has been made, unless your place can be filled from a waiting list, in which case the full fee will be refunded. If the workshop is cancelled for any reason, you will be offered either a cash refund or the option of being transferred to an alternative event.**
