Pre-Natal Pilates & TRX

Pre-natal pilates class

Pregnancy can be a very rewarding time to tune inward and connect with the exercise principles of breathing, pelvic stability, scapulae placement, postural changes and rib-cage & cervical spine placement.  Working with these principles will not only enhance your workout experience, but they also offer skills to bring to the birth and care of your baby.

Pilates may be the best exercise choice during  and after pregnancy because it strengthens the most important muscles women will use during pregnancy and labor.  Pilates exercises build abdominal, back and pelvic muscles that support more comfortable pregnancies and deliveries.  The addition of the TRX Strap assists is excellent upper and mid-back strengthening as well as support for squats and lunges!

One the top reasons pilates and pregnancy go together so well is that pilates is great at building core strength.  If your abdominals, back, and pelvic floor/Kegel muscles are toned, they will support a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. Pilates is also famous for helping new moms get their figures back after baby is born!

Another great reason to do pilates in pregnancy is that it is very adaptable. Most pilates exercises can be modified as your body and abilities change. The modifications help you keep the intent of the exercise, but adjust the form to work for your body. 

 

We will not be offering any classes for the summer but we are pleased to offer private and semi-private training on the mat or reformer.   Please contact us for more information!
