Read about how Pilates can benefit a new mum, or find out for yourself with our Pilates + Gyrotonics Week 12 – 20 November with a 30 min taster for £20.
Overall, Pilates can be very user-friendly, and addresses the typical needs of a new mum in these ways:
1) strengthens the pelvic floor + abdominals
Addresses changes that have happened in the body due to pregnancy and birth, especially around the pelvis and lower back. This includes strengthening the pelvic floor and abdominals.
2) prevents discomfort from breastfeeding
Helps mobilise, strengthen and open upper back, neck and shoulders to prevent discomfort due to breastfeeding and carrying the baby.
3) conditions + tones
Develops overall strength and mobility after a period when exercises has been reduced/limited.
4) improves body awareness
In addition to reducing overall tension and together with increased strength of postural muscles, this enables mum to learn how to move with more awareness and therefore reduces the risk of getting injuries from the physically demanding life of having a small child.
5) provides a sense of calm
Centres and rejuvenates body and mind during a period which can be challenging and stressful
