Prenatal Pilates classes near you
Prenatal Pilates is one of the best exercise programs that you can do for staying in shape during your pregnancy and after giving birth. There are many benefits to doing Pilates during pregnancy. Pilates exercises can help to build and maintain strength, balance, and stamina as well as prepare you for a smoother labor and delivery.
Each trimester of your pregnancy presents different challenges for your body, and Pilates helps you face those challenges and stay in shape every step of the way. Prenatal Pilates focuses on core strength — the abs, pelvic floor, back muscles — and posture which help to support your back and neck as your stomach and breasts get bigger. Doing Pilates exercises throughout your pregnancy can help you maintain a healthy weight which is good for both you and your baby and will help you get your pre-pregnancy shape back after the birth of your child.
Pilates strengthen your pelvic floor muscles which support the bladder and bowel and reduces your risk of developing incontinence during and/or after pregnancy. Learning to control your breathing is another benefit of Pilates which is especially helpful during labor. It helps you to relax and concentrate on the job of giving birth.
If you’re looking for prenatal classes near you, Propel Pilates and Fitness offers private or group classes that can be modified to fit your needs throughout all three trimesters.
