Here is my 30 Minute Prenatal Pilates Workout at Home I want to share with you. While many of us are experiencing lockdown, now is a great time to start working out at home in the comfort of your own home.
Is Prenatal Pilates in the 2nd Trimester Safe?
Yes, absolutely! But the emphasis is on #PrenatalPilates . Because Pilates involves doing a series of controlled, slow, balanced movements it can be enjoyed throughout your pregnancy. While most Pilates moves are very gentle and safe, you still need to know which exercises to avoid. #2ndTrimester
You can start by aiming to do two sessions a week of Pilates when pregnant with at least one day between sessions. If you are a beginner, start slowly and exercise at a lower intensity, building to moderate intensity. As you make progress you can increase to three session per week.
The patterns of movement you will learn in our prenatal Pilates classes focus on your tummy and pelvic floor muscles. These muscles are also known as deep, stabilising muscles and strengthening them will ultimately help with your posture, balance and strength.
Our PregActive Prenatal Pilates workouts assist by targeting your back, stomach back and pelvic floor muscles without straining other joints. These exercises activate the deepest layer of your stomach muscles which help to stabilise your back and pelvis.
Many of our exercises are performed on your hands and knees which is an ideal position for pregnancy.
