Safe prenatal training during all three trimesters for moms-to-be

Pregnancy Pilates improves your strength and body awareness in a safe way

Pregnancy Pilates gentle and effective method, strengthens the postural and pelvic floor muscles that aid in labor and recovery. Women are more prone to back pain and injury during pregnancy due to a shift in center of gravity, carrying extra weight, and looser more unstable ligaments. Learn how to improve your strength and body awareness in a safe way.

Benefits of Pregnancy Pilates
  • Safe environment to keep moving and maintain your connection to your body for as long as possible until your baby arrives!
  • Restores control at a time when your body is going through major changes, none of which you have any control over. It is helpful to feel power over your body, even for just an hour
  • Can help prevent diastasis recti which 30-60% of all women have after delivery. This thinning of connective tissue near the belly button is less likely to occur if you have stronger deep abdominals going into delivery
  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscles which can help with incontinence that sometimes occurs due to your baby pushing down on your bladder
  • Helps you to find breath control which makes breathing techniques during labor much more accessible.
  • Less discomfort due to imbalances that often occur as the body adapts to make room for your growing baby. Pilates can help to strengthen the stabilizing muscles of the hips and pelvis to ensure less discomfort, especially in the lower back.
  • Strengthens arms and back which is important to prepare you for all of the lifting, bending over and rounding forward (feeding, changing, pushing a stroller) in your future. Good posture and a strong upper body can prevent permanent tension, imbalances and bad habits for moms-to-be.
  • Quicker recovery and return to pre-pregnancy body because the stronger you are before delivery, the quicker you will bounce back after!

From week 14 we recommend Pregnancy Pilates up until delivery. Before week 14 you can also participate in regular classes as long as it’s comfortable for you to be on your back and tummy.
