Pregnancy and General Clinical Pilates

WE ARE EXCITED TO OFFER PREGNANCY AND GENERAL PILATES WITH A PELVIC FLOOR FOCUS HELD IN OUR STUDIO AT 62 DINAH PARADE, EAST KEILOR FROM EARLY 2018.

 

Who are the classes suitable for?

Classes are suitable for all:

  • Expectant mothers (in the absence of any contraindications to exercise)
  • Anyone looking for a pilates class with a 'pelvic floor safe' focus

Our classes will be led by an experienced and qualified pelvic floor/women's health physiotherapist and will focus on core strength, posture, pelvic floor, flexibility and stability.  

Prior to attending our clinical pilates classes you will be required to make an appointment to see one of our physiotherapists for a 1:1 clinical assessment. During this appointment we will will use a variety of assessment techniques to establish your current level of muscle function and develop a program specific for your needs. We can also discuss any specific concerns you may have in this private session.

 

How will the classes run?

Our classes will be led by an experienced and qualified pelvic floor/women's health physiotherapist. Classes will include a combination of mat pilates, swiss ball work and strengthening exercises. Please note that our studio is upstairs with no lift access. 

 

Benefits of clinical pilates:

Clinical pilates differs from general pilates in that a program is tailored to your individual needs and developed using the specialist clinical knowledge of an experienced physiotherapist.

Clinical pilates can help you to:

· Gain or regain muscle strength and tone

· Increase flexibility

· Build "core strength" and contribute to improved pelvic floor muscle function

· Improve energy levels and your sense of wellbeing

· Improve posture and postural awareness

· A friendly social environment!

Are there any special considerations for exercising during pregnancy?

Whilst exercise during pregnancy is generally shown to be very beneficial, there are some conditions which may make it unsuitable for you to  exercise during pregnancy. You will be screened for these conditions during your 1:1 assessment. If you wish to find out more we suggest you view the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists guidelines for Physical Activity and Exercise During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period.
