Pregnancy Pilates

Our specialist Ante-Natal Pilates classes will help you embrace the changes your body is experiencing at this special time. These classes are specifically designed for expectant mums. The focus is on preparing your body for delivery and the arrival of your new baby, as well as helping your body adapt to the changes it is going through. 

Who is Pregnancy Pilates for? 

Whether you are used to exercising regularly or want to start exercising now you're pregnant, it can be a bit daunting knowing what the best exercise is for you and your changing body. 

Our classes are specifically designed for pregnant Mum's and our Instructor Kim has attended extensive post graduate training to make sure she provides the best possible experience, advice and support for you. 

Pilates is a great form of exercise to practice during pregnancy, helping your body adapt to the physical changes it's experiencing and preapring you for birth and life as a new mum. 

We generally advise waiting until you've reached your second trimester to start our Pregnancy Pilates classes. You can feel quite tired and queasy in the first trimester, so exercising isn’t always your top priority. However, if you feel up to it, you can start as soon as you like!

What do Pregnancy Pilates classes involve? 

Pilates is an extremely popular and well established form of exercise. Our mat based classes focus on working your deep abdominal and pelvic muscles, helping you build stability and strength from the centre. You will also use small pieces of equipment such as weighted balls and blocks and gym balls, to add interest and challenge to the classes. 

There are a mximum of 8 participants per class, so you always have close supervision and guidance throughout and the classes can be accommodated and tailored to individual needs. 

Best of all, the Instructor is also a qualified Physiotherapist, so you have instant access and support to physio advice during your time here. 

When are the classes?

The pregnancy Pilates classes are every week on a Friday from 5-6pm.

“Starting antenatal pilates at 16 weeks of pregnancy was one of the best investments I have made so far. Not only was Kim friendly and welcoming but everyone who I have met throughout the course of my pregnancy has genuinely taught me something. It's a great start to my Friday evening. I have relished being able to still exercise safely while pregnant or discuss twinges and pains with confidence as well as build friendships with other mums to be which I can see lasting! This is definitely worth making the time for! I cant wait to start post natal pilates!”
