Pre-natal & Post-natal Pilates
Our Physios will help manage the changes to your body during pregnancy
Pilates is a safe and effective form of exercise to not only assist you with managing the changes to your body during pregnancy, but also to improve your strength for labour and the post-partum period.
Exercises in the class will target the pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles (the “core”), which are important in pregnancy as they work to maintain an optimal posture to reduce excessive loading on the lower back and pelvis. We also build on your gluteal strength to reduce the risk of sacroiliac joint (SIJ) irritation, as well as general strengthening for the upper body to ensure you’re feeling strong for when the baby arrives! Safe stretches and mobility exercises are incorporated into each class to ensure you feel leaving more mobile and relaxed.
