Pilates exercises have been proven to help develop and retain a healthy pelvic floor, especially during and after pregnancy. A strong pelvic floor supports the organs of the lower abdominal area and by keeping this area strong one can prevent back pain and incontinence and avoid a long, inefficient labour. Delivery and recovery postpartum is also improved. Pilates also helps to prevent and manage conditions such as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) also known as Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP).
On the Equipment
New and future mothers receive a bespoke program to suit their maternity, postpartum and individual needs. These classes are especially recommended to address conditions such as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), chronic sciatic pain and other effects of pregnancy and giving birth. Please refer to our Equipment Classes for prices and more information.
All our groups or privates Equipment classes can be attended by both, Ante and Postnatal clients.
Antenatal On The Mat
Although Mat classes continue to provide individual instruction, attention and care, they are more affordable than Equipment classes. Classes target the right muscles and provide movement to assist both birth and post-birth recovery. They are also a great opportunity for meeting other women undergoing similar experiences.
Postnatal on the Mat
Babies are also very welcome in Mat Postnatal Classes. This incorporates the traditional Mat class but invites babies to lay on a mat next to Mum. Babies do not get the same workout attention as Mum, but are free to do what they feel like. Mums are also free to stop any time and feed if needed. Classes are from 50 min, up to 60 minutes in duration.
