Testimonial

"I’ve been doing really well after this pregnancy – probably the best I’ve ever been post-partum.  The strategies that you talked about regarding labor really helped me.  I didn’t hardly tear this time, and feel that I pushed correctly for the first time.  And I was bouncing around feeling great only days after!"

exercise

These exercises are specifically designed to help your body support your baby during pregnancy, to prepare you to birth your baby, and to lay the foundation for a more complete recovery.  Exercises include:

  • Activating and relaxing pelvic floor musculature as well as your deep abdominals
  • Hip strengthening to prevent common pregnancy and postpartum injuries
  • Flexibility for all major muscle groups surrounding the pelvis
  • Upper body strengthening exercises to promote improved posture

PLUS!
All exercises are safe for all trimesters and fitness levels, so you can start where you're at and modifications are offered for common difficulties.

Testimonial

"So glad I got to take this class to be able to learn proper abdominal exercises that were different from my normal routine for exercise.  I really think I'd have messed myself up doing crunches or other things before taking this class."

Testimonial

"I could not believe how quickly labor went! The breathing techniques were what got me through the contractions. I was amazed that I was able to stay in control. I can't thank you enough for everything we learned in prenatal Pilates!"
