Antenatal Pilates will help your body cope with the different stages of pregnancy as well as prepare for birth and motherhood by focusing on breathing, flexibility, alignment, pelvic floor connection, and abdominal strengthening. The mind/body connection in Pilates will enhance feelings of relaxation - a tool to be utilised in the run up to labour and during birthing.
You will benefit from Jo’s clinical expertise and background in treating pregnant ladies - exercises are carefully selected and adapted to ensure their suitability for ladies experiencing Pelvic Girdle Pain or other common pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions.
Learn how to do meaningful, functional pelvic floor exercises which will enhance your pelvic health, not just in pregnancy but beyond. We will work all the areas needed to be strong in pregnancy and stretch and release areas known to get tight and stiff. This course will leave Mums-to-be feeling energised, stronger, more flexible and definitely more knowledgeable....having made a few friends along the way!
Class numbers are kept small to allow individual attention for all. Exercises are easily adapted to suit each individual, so you get the best out of the classes. All equipment will be provided, just bring yourself and bump! Suitable from 12 weeks to 35/6 weeks (at the start of the course)
Price includes a goody bag full of Mum and baby items plus exclusive discounts from local businesses, a resistance exercise band so you can continue with the exercises beyond the classes AND LOTS MORE!!!
