Prenatal Pilates Courses
This tailored approach to exercise therapy in this unique time of your life. Each woman entering our program is invited for a tailored assessment which includes:
- Specific pregnancy and exercise screening
- Ultrasound assessment of the abdominal wall and pelvic floor
- Discussion of goals for the classes
- Education and advice for healthy movement
This package starts with a private 30 minute introductory consult with our physiotherapist during which we will cover the key points to safe and effective exercise during pregnancy.
We use our ultrasound machine to view your abdominal wall and assess your pelvic floor contractions so you can know right from the start how to activate your core properly.
You then complete a five week Pilates course in our beautiful Pilates studio, learning how to move well, stretch and strengthen in a safe and inclusive environment. If you enjoy it, there are many options for continuing after this course finishes which we will discuss with you.
