About Pre and Post Natal Pilates
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Your body goes through many changes during your pregnancy and Pilates is an excellent way to ensure your body can cope with the demands made upon it as well as prepare for the birth itself. Research has shown that exercising women had an active labour 30% shorter then non-exercising women.
Some of the benefits of practicing Pilates when expecting include –
