Pilates for Pregnancy is offered at the Pilates Studio and is designed to offer women a form of exercise that is safe before, during and after pregnancy.
During pregnancy the woman’s body goes through significant changes. The pregnant body is flooded with a variety of hormones that drastically change the way the body functions, ultimately affecting the way a woman feels. With the growth of the fetus comes major shifts in the body: the organs are pushed up and compacted, the abdominal wall separates, and the woman’s center of gravity is thrown off causing strain in the lower back. The latter are only a few of the many changes the pregnant body undergoes. The Pilates Pregnancy Method will focus on strengthening core muscles that the pregnant body needs to endure these changes with as much ease as possible, and then to help the post-natal body strengthen and repair the abdominal wall and pelvic muscles that have been stretched and strained.
The Pilates Pregnancy Method’s objective is to help women achieve a strong, healthy mind and body before and during her pregnancy, and to assist in a quick recovery after birth.

Pilates balances the body and strengthens your weaknesses so that your body can heal faster, strengthen and realign itself therefore avoiding further imbalance and undo stress on your joints.
Pilates exercise focuses on postural symmetry, abdominal and spine stabilization, mind/body control, and strengthening through the complete range of motion of all joints. Instead of isolating muscle groups, the whole body is trained, integrating the upper and lower extremities with the trunk. The result is strong, long, and lean muscles with equal strength ratios.
Our studio also offers a Certification Program.
All of our instructors have been trained in this method based on the original teachings of Joseph Pilates.
