Medical professionals firmly advocate continuing with exercise during a healthy pregnancy. Pilates is an ideal form of exercise in the ante-natal period. It is low-impact and is designed to target the pelvic floor and lower abdominal muscles during this important time. It helps to maintain strength and flexibility of the postural muscles, giving you the strength required for pregnancy and delivery, and most importantly for looking after your new arrival.
Pilates during the post-natal period is arguably the most beneficial form of exercise at this time. It helps to rehabilitate the pelvic floor and lower abdominal muscles, and targets the weakened muscles of the thoracic spine, gluteal (buttock), lower back and pelvic area. It is the ideal foundation from which you can return to your pre-pregnancy sporting activities and fitness levels.
