Antenatal Pilates

 

Pilates is a safe way to exercise during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

 

Antenatal pilates can;

 

  • increase core muscle strength ( deep abdominal muscles, pelvic floor muscles, gluteus muscles )
  • prevent or manage back and pelvic pain
  • prevent or manage continence problems
  • facilitate good postures - despite your changing shape!
  • maintain abdominal muscle strength
  • prevent separation of these muscles (rectus diastasis)
  • increase energy and sense of well being.  

 

Post-natal Pilates 

 

Postnatal Pilates classes offer one of the best ways to get back into shape quickly after having a baby.

 

Postnatal pilates can;

 

  • facilitate postpartum recovery
  • strengthen the body & mind for the new demands of motherhood
  • strengthen the deep support muscles (abdominals and pelvic floor)
  • reduce separation of the tummy muscles
  • restore good posture
  • promote relaxation
  • reduce the risk of developing back pain

 

Whether you have had a vaginal or caesarian delivery, a safe Pilates workout. It is recommended that you wait a minimum of six weeks after delivery to start exercising again. However, if you have had a caesarean section, then it is highly recommended that you wait eight to twelve weeks before starting postnatal  pilates, always discuss with your doctor. 

 

 

Babies are welcome too.
