Exercise during pregnancy is important and has many health benefits. Many stresses occur in your body as a result of hormonal and postural changes during a pregnancy.
Antenatal Pilates focuses on breathing, gentle stretching and strengthening your deep abdominal, back, arm and pelvic floor muscles. The exercises promote relaxation whilst, the postural awareness, improved spinal stability and stronger pelvic floor can help reduce pain and discomfort. The classes also help prepare your body for birth and the physical demands of being a new Mum. Regular Pilates during pregnancy can contribute towards an easier pregnancy, delivery and recovery.
We offer antenatal classes with Emilie on a Saturday at 9.30-10.30
