Mums and Bubs Clinical Pilates
WE ARE EXCITED TO OFFER POSTNATAL CLINICAL PILATES FOR MUMS AND BUBS HELD IN OUR STUDIO AT 62 DINAH PARADE, EAST KEILOR FROM EARLY 2018.
Who are the classes suitable for?
Classes are suitable for all new mums from 6 weeks postnatal. Whether you are experiencing issues associated with your pelvic floor or are simply looking to be supported in your postpartum return to exercise, these classes are for you! Our classes will be led by an experienced and qualified pelvic floor/women's health physiotherapist and will focus on core strength and abdominal rehabilitation.
Prior to attending our postnatal 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 use Real-Time Ultrasound to view your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and 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. Our classes are specifically for mums with babies, so of course your baby is most welcome to come along! We suggest you bring a blanket to lay your baby on and some of their favourite toys. At any stage during the class you are welcome to feed and tend to your baby. As our studio is upstairs, there is no pram access, so we suggest you use a baby carrier or capsule to bring your baby upstairs. Classes are suitable for mums with babies from 6 weeks of age until 12 months, however keep in mind that, especially as your baby becomes more mobile, you are fully responsible for the supervision of your child.
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:
· 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 post-partum posture and postural awareness
· Give you the chance to get out of the house, socialise and meet like-minded mums in a baby friendly environment!
Real Time Ultrasound:
During our clinical pilates assessments, we use Real Time Ultrasound which is a useful way to establish the functional ability of the deep abdominal muscles during various movements. Real Time Ultrasound may also be used as part of your pelvic floor muscle assessment and is particularly useful to give you visual feedback on your pelvic floor muscle ability as you can see movement corresponding to muscle contraction and relaxation live on the screen. Real time ultrasound may also be used to assess bladder emptying
All classes held at 62 Dinah Parade, Keilor East in the upstairs studio.
