Pre Natal Pilates
Pre Natal Pilates is a great way for women to continue exercising in a safe and controlled way while pregnant. At Physiolates, we run a pre natal Pilates class and we also offer one to one Pilates sessions with our specially trained physiotherapists.
How it works
Pilates consists of various routines of exercise designed to increase deep core and pelvic floor strength as your body changes through pregnancy. Increasing deep core and pelvic muscle strength gives the spine and pelvis more stability to ensure you can function at your optimum level while pregnant. Increasing stability muscle strength also helps reduce risk of back pain as your baby’s weight develops.
