Post Natal Pilates

Are you a new mum or a new mum again? Pilates is a great form of fitness that focuses on building strength, improving posture, developing endurance, maximising your breathing, and encouraging flexibility, coordination and balance. Postnatal clients are welcome once they have had their 6-8 week check from their GP.  Postnatal clients are also welcome to bring along their new additions up to the point where they are beginning to crawl.

 

During pregnancy and delivery our bodies go through many changes that can alter the way we physically feel and perform long term.  Pilates is a proven method that helps strengthen your pelvic floor and deep core muscles following birth, and if practiced consistently can help us feel stronger, taller, and more flexible than we may have even prior to pregnancy. Exercising with other new mums is also a lovely way to connect locally and receive support from others who are going through the same life experiences.
