This class is delivered by a Physical Therapist and qualified APPI Pilates instructor. When done 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 done right 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. If you have attended previous courses please book the 19:30 course time. If this is your first course please book the 18:30 time slot – thanks!
