This events has past

This pregnancy Pilates class is delivered by a physical therapist and qualified APPI Pilates instructor.

When completed correctly, Pilates can be very safe during pregnancy. It’s uniquely adaptable for any level of fitness, all types of injuries and any stage of pregnancy. In fact, Pilates completed correctly can help you sail through your nine months feeling more mobile and comfortable and help you bounce back sooner after giving birth.

Pilates exercises are proven to help keep the pelvic floor intact and for pregnant women, this benefit is never more vital. Keeping this area strong is the best preventative against back pain, incontinence, and a long, inefficient labour and delivery. A strong pelvic floor is also responsible for increased sexual pleasure before and after childbirth.

This 1-hour class is appropriate for women at all stages of the pregnancy. We will focus on the extensive repertory of appropriate Pilates exercises for mums-to-be. This class is an exclusive 10 person only class, to ensure you are receiving the correct amount of attention from your APPI qualified trainer.

Benefits:

  • Strengthens the abdominal muscles
  • Promotes spinal stabilisation
  • Encourage pelvic mobility
  • Keeps your baby well aligned in the pelvis
  • Strengthens the lower back
  • Aids in relieving backache or pelvic pressure
