Upcoming Term Dates: Wed 30th September 7pm, 4 week course.

The next term of Pregnancy Pilates commences on Wednesday 30th Sept 2020 at 7pm, and is a 4 week course which can be joined at any term (from week 12 of pregnancy) where a space is available.
We hope to welcome participants back into the studio for Pregnancy Pilates from October 2020, while monitoring public health guidelines.
The online Zoom class will continue as a separate class in October also.
Lorraine O'Reilly (Chartered Physiotherapist) lead this fun and challenging class through a variety of pregnancy-safe exercises to keep you strong and fit before your baby arrives.
Pregnancy Pilates with a Physiotherapist as class instructor is particularly valuable because we can adapt each exercise according to:
Your stage of pregnancy
Your fitness level
Your own 'weak points' or concerns
Any aches or pains you may be experiencing
What you want to achieve from an exercise class
Your medical & pregnancy history.
Our pregnancy Pilates classes are designed to be challenging but achievable and always safe- you will feel that you are working during the class! We use arm and ankle weights where appropriate, large gym balls, fitness circles and resistance bands. You will be squatting with good techniques as well as learning how to find and activate your pelvic floor.
Each week we discuss and explain a different aspect of body changes in pregnancy- pelvic floor, gluteal strength, tips to avoid pelvic girdle pain, relieving buttock etc so you get some physio advice as well as your Pilates workout. You will be provided with some written exercises to practice at home if you wish to do so.
If you have any questions about starting Pregnancy Pilates with us, one of our Physiotherapists will be happy to speak with you.
