Pre and Post Natal Pilates
PRE NATAL PILATES CLASS
It aims to focus on:
1. engaging your pelvic floor and learning to breathe correctly
2. helps to make you feel and stay energised throughout your pregnancy
3. teaches you functional exercises in preparation for delivery and the demands of being a mum, (squat, bend, extend, rotate, push and pull) making you body aware as your body changes through each trimester.
3. Lots of support and advice on healthy foods that are good for you to eat during pregnancy. Sometimes you get to taste my creations!
4. I enjoy a very holistic all round wellness approach to staying fit and healthy during pregnancy so you will get lots of extra information and advice on how to recover post natal that goes beyond just doing exercises!
4. Prepares you for the physical demands of being a mum!
This class will not only help to prepare you for delivery by keeping you strong (endurance strength for labour) but also give you the knowledge of how to look after your body post delivery. (knowing what you should and should not do post delivery is vital in ensuring a quick and effective recovery)
Ideally you would have had your 12 weeks scan and had the clearance from your GP/midwife to start or continue exercising.
