Pilates: A Gentle Yet Powerful Practice for Pregnancy

Hey lovely mamas-to-be!

Now that you have a little one on the way, you might be wondering how to safely continue exercise through your pregnancy journey and beyond.

Let me introduce you to the incredible benefits of Pilates!

This low-impact movement practice helps maintain strength and flexibility while expecting
and can even ease some common pregnancy discomforts. Many of the controlled motions
cleverly target the pelvic floor muscles, helping prepare your body for labour and delivery.

Once cleared for exercise by your provider, a prenatal Pilates routine offers:
– Improved posture to accommodate your growing bump
– Increased core strength and stability during a time of loosening joints and shifting balance
– Enhanced muscular endurance for the hard work of labour and childbirth
– Greater mind-body awareness and ability to relax when discomfort strikes
– An opportunity to bond with fellow mamas-to-be in a prenatal class setting!

After your bundle of joy arrives, a gradual return to Pilates will help rehabilitate core strength
and pelvic floor function safely. The focus on precise movements is ideal for rebuilding
muscle control postpartum. Just listen closely to your body and don’t overdo it!

Over time, I see new mums regain mobility, stability, confidence and community through our
classes. If you’re interested in integrating Pilates into your pregnancy and postpartum fitness
routine, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

I offer both private training and group pre/postnatal sessions.

Let me support you through the exciting months ahead! We’ve got this mama 🙂
