Postnatal Pilates

Postnatal Pilates

Release, Strengthen & Move your body.

 

Following the birth of my 1st child, 7 years ago I designed this class to provide a gentle return to exercise for new mums focusing on getting the body moving, reducing tight muscles and building a strong core.  

 

After having a baby things just feel different and this class helps you to focus and gentle start to rebuilding your strength and body after having baby.

 

Postnatal Pilates:

- Re-engage your core.

- Improve your flexibility.

- Reduce aches & pains.

- Strengthen you pelvic floor.

- Suitable for c-section mums.

- Prolapse friendly.

- Babies Welcome until mobile.

- Make new mummy friends (social meet-ups arranged)

 

Suitable from 6wk check/ 8-12wks post-c-section

 

Benefits of Postnatal Pilates

 

- Strengthens pelvic floor following pregnancy and labour to reduce risk of incontinence & prolapse of the abdominal organs.
- Realigns abdominal muscles and strengthens them to help improve appearance safely and effectively. This helps reduce lower back ache
- Strengthen deeper core back muscles to reduce lower back ache so that the superficial muscles relax.
- Relieves tension in the upper back muscles often tight following pregnancy and hours of feeding the little one.
- Increases relaxation which helps reduces stress and postnatal depression.
- Meet other new mums in the local area

 

FYI - unsuitable exercises for postnatal women include runnning, jumping exercises, planks, crunches, reverse curls
