Post-natal Pilates

CORE WINDSOR TBA April 2022 14:00

Most women are able to return to exercise four to six weeks after a regular birth or when they get clearance from their physician. Many of the exercises performed during the second and third trimester of pregnancy will be suitable now, but other exercises can be added to focus on reactivating and stabilizing the pelvic floor, transversus abdominis and obliques as well as developing lumbo-pelvic stability. This gentle but effective workout, developed by the Merrithew team, incorporates Toning Balls to get new moms back on the right track.

Learning objectives:

  1. Apply the Five Basic Principles of STOTT PILATES to exercises specific to the post-natal client
  2. Discover how to modify for the needs of this special population
  3. Understand how to incorporate Toning Balls in a post-natal workout
  4. Discuss special considerations for post-natal concerns
