Sara explains the benefits of ante and post natal Pilates:
‘Pilates is the perfect way to strengthen the core, through a sequence of movements it helps to improve your poise, body awareness and muscle tone. The programme is designed to develop balance throughout the body and build strong stable muscles that are also flexible and correctly aligned.
Modern Pilates is recommended by physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. It is considered safe for people with back, knee, hip and shoulder problems. The main focus of Pilates is to teach women these methods so it can be utilised during daily activities.
Ante and post natal educational Pilates sessions with Sara bring mums and mums-to-be together to share pregnancy experiences. Each class incorporates a variety of standing exercises for posture and exercises on the birthing ball, all designed to strengthen your back, core and pelvic floor. If you have back issues or pelvic girdle pain exercises can be adapted to help strengthen and support your pelvis and spine.
Pilates has many other benefit; improves sleep pattern, decreases stress levels, and it can improve your stamina for labour, birth and post natal recovery. Come along and give it a go, make new friends and enjoy your pregnancy in safe hands’
