Pregnancy and Postpartum Pilates
Why Pre/Post-Natal Pilates?
Connecting Movement to Breath
Connection between the physical work of Pilates and breathing is helpful throughout pregnancy and is especially important during labor and delivery.
Helps your changing body.
Everything is moving anteriorly, towards the front of the body. Very important to strengthen the posterior chain to stay out of pain.
You can do Pilates throughout your entire pregnancy.
This is very unique to Pilates, it is safe to do throughout and you can modify Pilates for how you are feeling that day.
Teaches you how to listen to your body.
Empowers you to let go of ego and do what works for you. You decide what feels good because everyone is different.
