Pregnancy

Pilates is safe and highly beneficial to health during the entire pre and post natal period.
Focussing on core strength and breathing make Pilates an excellent part of a pre and post natal exercise program.
Pilates strengthens the core muscles deep in the lower abdomen. This helps women become stronger in those muscles which are needed during pregnancy to carry the weight of their baby, while stabilizing the pelvis and relieving back strain and pelvic instability.
Pilates strengthens the pelvic floor to help support the bowel, bladder and womb as your baby grows. This helps make pregnancy more comfortable and aids with urine control.
By heightening awareness of breathing, Pilates aids relaxation during pregnancy and is a good preparation for labour.
Pilates movements are precise and gentle, avoiding sudden jarring which would be uncomfortable during pregnancy. Pilates creates better overall balance, flexibility, body control and agility for pregnant women, avoiding clumsiness as your baby and your body grows.
We recommend an intake appointment with us to assess your condition, needs and goals. From this you will receive an advice on which class and program are best for you.
