As a woman goes through her pregnancy so many changes occur in her body on a daily basis. These changes are mainly due to the amount of different hormones that are being produced. Having said that there is a large amount of pressure that is put on the joints as well as the spine during this time.

Pregnancy Pilates focuses on keeping the muscles strong and flexible to help with this process of change. We focus on pelvic floor strength and flexibility, body alignment and keeping up general muscle tone and overall flexibility.

We use the Pilates breathing method to teach our moms to use their breath and to go within when feeling uncomfortable and uneasy.

Pilates during pregnancy improves posture, alleviates any aches and pains associated with pregnancy, improves circulation helping with water retention, maintains overall muscle tone and promotes post natal recovery.
