ANTENATAL PILATES CLASSES
Antenatal Pilates during pregnancy is a healthy and enjoyable way to exercise, providing you with a greater body awareness at the different stages of your pregnancy.
During pregnancy, you can continue with Pilates exercises as they are easily modified to meet the needs of each trimester. You will be changing physically, mentally and emotionally throughout each stage of pregnancy and Pilates exercises are designed with this in mind.
If you have never practised Pilates before becoming pregnant, it is advisable to wait until after your first scan (12-14 wks).
