Pilates focuses on building the body’s core strength and improving posture through a series of low repetition, low impact stretching and conditioning exercises. A strong core (back, abdominals and pelvis) helps to minimise back pain and other problems. Pilates aims to bring the body into a balanced alignment so that posture, strength, performance and aesthetic are achieved and sustained effortlessly. It is suitable for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level.
Pre Natal and post Natal Pilates
Building core and pelvic floor strength through Pilates can assist in the reduction of back and pelvic pain during pregnancy as well as reduced labour lengths. Improving back strength can improve posture and reduce the likelihood of back and neck pain when caring for a newborn.
If you are pregnant and wish to participate in Pilates, our qualified physiotherapists and instructors can guide you safely through your regime and adjust exercises to suit your needs as your body undergoes special changes. Please do note that if you looking to take this up in the third trimester, it may be best to consult with your midwife or GP first to ensure it is appropriate for you.
