PREGNANCY PILATES

How can Pilates help me in Pregnancy?

Because Pilates targets the tummy, back and pelvic floor muscles without straining other joints it is the perfect exercise to enjoy safely when you are expecting.

During pregnancy, as your baby grows, your tummy and pelvic floor muscles are put under increasing strain. If your muscles are weak you may develop back or pelvic pain. Your pelvic floor muscles can become less supportive to your

bladder, bowel and womb. Pilates focuses on strengthening and toning the muscles; helps to gently strengthen them at this important time.

And after my baby is born?

The changes that occur in your body during pregnancy and labour

are both wonderful and remarkable. Once your baby has arrived

a gentle exercise programme will gradually help you regain core strength

as well as tackling postural issues that may have developed through pregnancy.

Pilates can also give you time to focus on yourself and your recovery

and this in turn will improve sleep, minimise depression

and help you begin to ‘feel like yourself ‘again.

I have had a C-section – can I still do Pilates?

A caesarean section is major surgical procedure from which it takes time to recover. Pilates is an extremely effective form of exercise for post-caesarean recovery.

As Pilates works primarily on your core strength, it can help to retrain

your abdominal muscles to help support your spine and pelvis and

recover your pre - baby strength and shape.

We offer specialised pregnancy Pilates classes led by a qualified personal trainer.

Class sizes are limited to just 6 people and each session

is conducted in our small, friendly yet fully equipped gym.

We currently run post pregnancy and pregnancy Pilates classes.
