Pregnancy Pilates

All our classes are now online and we have taken the decision to upkeep our values of small, intimate classes where we can get to know you and understand what you and your body needs during this special time. All our teachers are committed to supporting you and helping you achieve whatever goals you have set yourself.

You can safely begin an exercise program during pregnancy after consulting with your health care provider, but do not try a new, strenuous activity.

All our classes are taken by  Pre and Postnatal specialist Pilates teachers and require no prior experience. We advise to be cautious during the first 12 weeks (first trimester).

All our classes are currently online. If you would like to talk at all about how we can help, please contact me; Ellie Brown at ellie@greenwichpilates.co.uk.

Pregnancy Pilates will help;

  •  Strengthen your core muscles, which equips your body better to cope with the strains caused by the weight of your growing baby. Hormones make the tissues (ligaments) that connect your bones more pliable in pregnancy, making you more prone to injury.
  • Pevlic Girdle Pain (PGP) & Sciatica
  • Reduces back pain, by exercising the deepest tummy muscles that stabilise your back and pelvis. Weak muscles can lead to back or pelvic pain.
    • Strengthen your pelvic floor, which will help to support your bowel, bladder and uterus (womb) as your baby grows and moves down.
    • Helps with balance, as you may feel a little more clumsy, or that your balance isn’t as good as usual, in pregnancy. Pilates exercises strengthen your core and may make you more stable when you walk as your bump grows.
    • Takes the strain off your back and pelvis, by using positions such as going on your hands and knees, which is a great position for pregnancy. Towards the end of your pregnancy, it may also help to get your baby into the right position for birth.
    • Relax and control your breathing, which is important for pregnancy and labour.
