Many women want to continue to exercise during pregnancy, but are concerned that physical exertion could cause harm to their unborn baby and indeed themselves. Prenatal and postnatal pilates is a gentle, low impact, form of exercise and as such is considered one of the best forms of exercise for a pregnant woman.
Suitable for 2nd and third trimesters with modifications carried out to adapt to the changes happening at this period of your pregnancy. If you have been practicing Pilates with us before becoming pregnant, you are able to continue with Essential Matwork classes as normal until around 16 weeks. If you are new to Pilates, wait until your 12 weeks scan and start on the Pregnancy class. We do not advise taking Intermediate classes. Every pregnancy is unique and adjustments will be made for your own individual energy levels and feelings
