GYROTONIC® during pregnancy
Exercising using The GYROTONIC method during pregnancy provides the perfect system for the pre-partum or post-partum woman by relieving lower back strain, fatigue and constipation. All the training for pregnancy was designed by Master Trainer, Leda Franklin. After her own two pregnancies, Leda worked extensively with many pregnant women to develop a system that builds stamina for the birthing process and increases blood circulation and oxygen to the body.
Strong pelvic floor assists child birth, an ideal way for pregnant mums to prepare the body and mind using GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS® methods for pre and anti natal.
“I’ve just finished the six week reformer class and have really enjoyed it. I’ve previously taken a pilates at another centre and found it quite tedious and it didn’t push me to work this left me skeptical of how good Pilates is. However, having now completed a 6 week course here, this skepticism has gone and I’ve found that Pilates really does work and lead to results and improvements. The flow of the classes means you’re constantly working your muscles for the full hour. The quality of the instructors and support during the sessions is great. I can really feel the improvements. I highly recommend booking onto the next course. “ – E. Norman Antrincham, Manchester
GYROTONIC Pregnancy Exercises
The exercises are gentle enough to continue right up till the due date, alleviating varicose veins, incontinence and leg swelling. Post-partum women will recover abdominal strength and toning more rapidly, relieve upper body tension from carrying the baby, and quickly regain strength and energy. We strongly recommend GYROTONIC for prenatal preparation and Portpartum recovery. The large circular movements, the tractioning supplied by the weights, and the natural ocean-like movements are very accepting of the ever changing body of pregnancy. Exercises are modified as needed and specific issues may be addressed to support mother and baby. The goal in mind— a beautiful pregnancy, a fabulous delivery, and a healthy supported transition into motherhood.
