Pilates during pregnancy increases muscle tone in the legs, back, arms as well as support the muscles of the pelvis, pelvic floor and transverse abdominals to assist labor. The exercises prevent leg cramps and varicose veins by allowing better circulation of your blood and lymphatic system as well as offering balanced flexibility with the ever changing hormones in the muscles, ligaments and joints. Our instructors understand the changes you are experiencing and can direct exercises to help alleviate discomforts and are trained to know what precautions to take as well as what exercises are most beneficial during pregnancy.
Post-natal benefits of these exercises help to stretch and strengthen chest and back muscles. The front of the body tends to get tight, especially with breast and bottle-feeding, and the back gets weak. Pilates also strengthens the abs correctly so they can go back where they started and then some!!!
