Pregnancy Pilates & Relaxation - 6 week course 15th October 2019
Exercising during pregnancy offers many physical and emotional benefits, including maintaining muscle strength and preventing musculoskeletal problems. Because of the gentle nature of many of the exercises in Pilates, mothers and mother-to-be are increasingly turning to Pilates during and after pregnancy. Pilates exercise during pregnancy will help to relieve back pain, increase labour stamina, improve flexibility, strengthen the pelvic floor and helps mums-to-be relax and unwind.
Pilates was not originally designed for pregnancy, therefore some of the traditional repertoire is not suitable for pregnant ladies. If you wish to practise Pilates throughout pregnancy please ensure you attend classes with a Pregnancy Trained instructor.
The sessions comprise of 45 minutes pregnancy Pilates and 30 minutes deep pregnancy relaxation, with scripts you can take through to your pregnancy to help you during the labour period.
