Our Pilates Matwork, Reformer and Equipment classes are modified to enable you to safely exercise during your pregnancy and beyond.
PRE NATAL PILATES
Whether you have participated in Pilates classes before your pregnancy or not it is a fantastic way to exercise and stretch your body safely during pregnancy.
The benefits of a tailored Pilates exercise program during pregnancy include:
• Reducing fatigue
• Relief of back and pelvic pain
• Fewer incontinence problems during and after pregnancy
• Assisting in a faster return to your normal body shape, muscle tone and strength after the birth.
POST NATAL PILATES
Learning how to move well with your baby can help prevent injury. Physio-taught Pilates classes can teach you to engage your core muscles protecting your back and shoulders. After giving birth your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are stretched and have often lost some of their strength and definition. New demands of being a mother such as breastfeeding, pushing a pram, picking up your child put strains on your body which can lead to aches and pains. It is important to build your core strength to assist in all the daily demands of motherhood. Not only does Pilates get your body stronger it will also tone your abdominal and gluteal muscles helping you get your pre-baby body back! Even better if you have been practicing Pilates during pregnancy your abdominal muscles will bounce back at a much quicker rate than would normally happen. If you have not done Pilates, now is a very good time to start!
At Physio on Miller it is our goal to provide expert care tailored to your personal symptoms and goals during your pregnancy and beyond. Give us a call to find out which class would best suit you.
