Ante and Post-natal Pilates is a gentle form of exercise to keep your body mobile and strong throughout pregnancy and can help aid recovery after birth. It focuses on mobility of joints without over stretching & targets stability muscles to provide support around your core, hips and lower back.
Both classes offer the benefit of being able to ask a qualified physiotherapist any questions that you may have regarding exercising and your body during Pregnancy, labour and recovery after birth.
The post natal class is designed for those who have recently given birth with the added bonus that you can bring your baby with you. We recommend you wait until you’ve had your 6 week check before joining. Lucy can help advise regarding paced progression back to normal activity focusing on the current exercises for both your stomach muscles and your pelvic floor. After these sessions you will feel confident to return to exercise in the knowledge that you have been advised correctly.
The ante natal class is on Thursday at 7pm and post natal is on Tuesday at 2pm. Both classes are in the studio with Lucy.
