Pilates & Relaxation for Pregnancy
Class designed specially for pregnant Mums at every stage of their pregnancy from the early weeks to as late as week 39 or 40. No two pregnancies are the same and this is reflected in the exercises – based on the principles of Pilates and focusing on the changing posture throughout pregnancy. The class will help you to mobilise and gently stretch your body, find comfortable positions to ease aches and pains, finishing with relaxation techniques to help with labour and birth.
Postnatal Pilates with Your Baby
These sessions also use Pilates principles aiming to promote circulation and aid recovery of the abdominal area, in particular the pelvic floor, significant in prevention of stress incontinence and prolapse. This aids physical and psychological recovery and relieves back and sacroiliac pain. Here is how one participant, Rosie described the class: “I can exercise with my baby – sometimes he joins in too! I can now carry him around without backache.”
The great thing about this class is that it is only open to Mums and their babies, so if baby needs a nappy change or a feed, then Mum can do this in the class without worrying that they are interrupting others. Additionally, the sessions can assist with weight reduction!
“A great way to get yourself ‘back together’ and a lovely way to meet other new mums.” Catherine
