A Fitness Pilates class for pregnant and postnatal women aimed at improving your posture, your core strength and to work on muscular imbalances making day to day tasks easier.
If everything just feels like hard work, all the lifting and carrying of your baby is not helping, alongside the feeding schedule then this mix of exercises will really help. A 60 minute class based on the original Pilates programme from Joseph Pilates. Specific exercises, tailored to prenatal and postnatal women, to enhance strength, balance and control as well as flexibility and joint mobility. These classes are tailored for Mums and Mums to be, so specific movements are chosen for tummy muscles, the back, posture and pelvic floor.
In each class we start with a joint warm up, then move into a muscle warm up. Progressing onto standing sequences of movement (heartraisers!) and then floor based exercises, pelvic floor work, flexibility and stretching. The content of each session differs weekly, we can concentrate on neck and posture one week and then look at back release work the following week. We also like to mix these classes up with a little equipment so body weight and mat based exercises are taught alongside the resistance bands and Pilates balls to change the dynamic of the movements.
