Pregnancy and birth can play havoc with your body! Often pelvic tone and abdominal strength seem to disappear altogether.
Pilates is a system of exercises specifically designed to address these problems. Engaging your core muscles of the pelvic floor and deep abdomen during pilates exercises, is a great way of developing tone again.
Our post natal Pilates classes are baby friendly. This means we have a lovely creche area set up at the back of the room. We mind your baby whilst you enjoy some me time. The room always open early to enable you to arrive early and feed your baby if needs be and we remain open after classes for you to enjoy a good old chat to other mums.
Our unique postnatal rehabilitation services
At The elbowroom we have developed a tailored program to help with getting rid of your mummy tummy and building back your pelvic floor strength.
This is not just for cosmetic purposes, weak or separated abdominal muscles can lead to mild or serious back issues. A compromised pelvic floor can lead to bladder control problems or worse.
Our postnatal Pilates instructors have been specifically trained in the rehabilitation of post pregnancy conditions. They know how, not only to protect your back, but build your pelvic floor and abdominal strength.
The elbowroom has an extensive range of classes for all ages and abilities. We offer such an eclectic mix to enable you to find something that will suit you. If you need any advice, please contact our class advisor who can point you in the right direction.
