Having a new born baby is hard work. Amongst the nappy changes, feeds, lack of sleep and recovering from the birth itself, there can be little time to think about exercise! The demands of pregnancy and then the energies of labour put a great stress on your body and it needs time to recover and heal. So you may not feel like rushing straight back into exercise and that is understandable. However your body also needs the strength to carry, feed and lift without causing aches, pains and issues later down the line.
Pilates is the perfect compromise with this. It is exercise that can be started soon after birth but won’t feel too strenuous. Being able to do just 10 minutes a day will make such a difference to your body. Getting to a class can be stressful with a baby. Help is at hand. We run postnatal classes with a creche provided. Or our “Beyond Your Bump” DVD means you get the experience and benefit of a postnatal class devised by a Pilates specialist, ready to do in your home around your baby.
This is an hour long DVD in several sections that will:
- Strengthen your abdominals.
- Targets your bum, legs and tum.
- Help with any pelvis pain.
- Work your pelvic floor in a functional manner.
- Correct upper body posture.
ESSENTIAL FOR ALL NEW MUMS.
My little ones have always loved sitting in a bouncy chair watching me do exercise – why not see if yours does too!
