You’ve heard how exercise is great for pregnancy, delivery and post-birth recovery, and with so many options it has become difficult to select which may be the best for you. It is also very important for mums-to-be and mums to carefully consider a tailored exercise routine or program while pregnant and recovering.
Many doctors would agree that Reformer Pilates is one of the most effective forms of exercise for pre, during and postnatal health and recovery. It is a beneficial form of exercise that can help you achieve a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and recovery. It does not only make you feel good; research shows a considerable positive effect on both your health and the baby’s long-term health.
Both prenatal and post-natal exercises and conditioning should be approached with caution, which is why it is important to work with a professional studio that is certified in prenatal and post-natal Pilates.
This is where the team at KX St Marys come in. Their prenatal and postnatal workouts are run by specialist KX qualified trainers, are adaptable and can be altered to accommodate your body as it changes. They are a safe (and sweaty) alternative to regular workouts - until you are ready to get back into the swing of things.
What are the benefits of pre/post natal pilates exercise?
It helps the expecting mum prepare for the physical demands of motherhood by promoting maternal well-being.
It helps increase energy, reduce back pain, and improve posture.
It places emphasis on breathing, control, and alignment, making it a great form of exercise.
The 50 minute prenatal, postnatal pilates classes at KX Pilates St Marys studio are a safe way to exercise and prepare the body for labour and help recover from birth. Their small, intimate classes up to 12 people are also a great way to meet other mums, mums to be in the St Marys area, support each other every week and be connected to your body again.
Pre and post natal pilates classes are held on Tuesdays at 12pm. For Post Natal classes, mums can bring their bubs in a capsule or pram.
