Pre and Post Natal Pilates
When expecting as well as after pregnancy, Pilates is one of the best and safest exercises one can do. “Pilates has the perfect recipe to keep you in shape throughout every trimester,” Zeina says. A mother of three, Zeina has to thank Pilates for making her strong before giving birth and helping her recover from a torn pelvic floor and a diastasis recti, or abdominal muscle separation.
Pilates works wonders because it engages your deepest core muscles, pelvic floor, hips and spine muscles, and helps you develop muscle strength and memory that will help your body recover faster post-pregnancy.
Prepare your body for pregnancy, and maintain strength, agility, and flexibility during pregnancy. Ready your body for the physical work of giving birth using a modified Pilates repertoire created to suit the changing needs of your body.
Return to pre-pregnancy body condition and shape with Pilates exercises that focus on pelvic floor and abdominal muscle strengthening, release upper back stress, and stretch the chest, arms, and upper back muscles.
