what is pilates?
Pilates is a unique system of strengthening exercises that was developed almost 100 years ago. Fit to Deliver classes adapt traditional Pilates exercises to create a safe, effective exercise system for you during and after your pregnancy.
You will learn how to activate your deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Physiotherapy research has shown that developing these deep "stabilising" muscles can help prevent low back and pelvic pain.
Strong abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, a good breathing technique and good muscle tone will help you to adjust to the physical changes occurring in your body while your baby develops. Fit to Deliver can be continued post-natally to ensure your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles recover strength and tone safely.
