ABOUT PRENATAL PILATES

• Decreases anxiety
• Improves sleep

Improves circulation Pregnant students can attend our specialized Prenatal Pilates Mat Classes or our Prenatal Pilates Studio sessions.
WHEN TO PRACTICE:
Rest during the first trimester
The changing hormones in the body during this time can make you feel exhausted and nauseous. So even though relaxation techniques will nourish both body and mind, we recommend you wait until the second trimester to exercise.
Practise Pilates during the second trimester
Although the body is changing and expanding, make the most of high energy levels and practise Pilates to benefit you in the following months.
Continue your classes until before birth
You may be heavy and achy but you can rest assured Pilates helps all of the conditions associated with pregnancy by strengthening the central or 'core' muscles, which in turn leads to improved posture, circulation and well-being.
Take up postnatal classes after birth
Women can generally return to Pilates four to six weeks after delivery, or eight to twelve weeks after a Caesarian section. Your doctor will advise you on when your body is ready.
