Baby Bumps is my dedicated pregnancy Pilates classes for pregnant women. It is completely safe for mother and baby. I try to provide an enjoyable experience for mothers to be to connect with their baby. This pregnancy Pilates class helps to prepare the body and mind for birth.
My antenatal classes combine the principles of Yoga, Alison Hogan Pilates, breathing and relaxation techniques. I instruct on how to gently stretch and strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, back, arms and buttocks offering you an all-inclusive fully rounded class. You will leave feeling calm, relaxed, and good about yourself.
Participation encouraged from 12 weeks right to the end of pregnancy.
Benefits of Baby Bumps
Excellent exercise during pregnancy
Pregnancy is tiring and you experience various level of aches and discomfort. Since most traditional exercise routines aren’t suggested during pregnancy, Pilates is ideal. It strengthens the muscles used during birth, helping to make your delivery easier.
Maintaining a Healthy Body Weight
With a regular Alison Hogan Pilates routine, you maintain a healthy weight for your pregnancy. It also prevents unwanted weight gain when used along with health eating helping you enjoy pregnancy.
Mind / Body balance
Alison Hogan Pilates is more than an exercise routine for toning and strengthening. The mind / body balance achieved during practice decreases mood shifts and increases relaxation and a feeling of centeredness.
A great nights sleep
Pregnancy changes and challenges your sleep pattern along with finding a comfortable sleeping position. Alison Hogan Pilates is designed around controlled breathing, which promotes good blood circulation. You will wake refreshed and relaxed making the day ahead more enjoyable.
Whether you are in your first, second or third trimester you are aware of your body and mood changes. With the Alison Hogan Pilates method you use concentrated flowing movements to help you focus on the present and reduce stress. Decreasing stress levels during pregnancy is important for you and baby.
My pregnancy Pilates classes provide an enjoyable time for mothers to be.
