Unlike other types of exercise, you can start with Pilates at any stage of your pregnancy and still reap tremendous benefits. It is absolutely never too late to learn. For many pregnant women, this is a time that they feel the greatest need and motivation to get fit and take care of themselves.
Since 2009, Amanda has been a certified Prenatal and Postpartum Pilates Specialist. Amanda is extremely passionate about guiding clients through their pregnancies and helping them to bounce forward (not back) after.
Amanda can personally attest to the benefits of Pilates for expectant mothers after giving birth for the first time at age 39.
Essential exercises for pregnancy include pelvic floor exercises, abdominal work to activate the TA and obliques and to maintain lumbar pelvic stability, hamstring strengthening and stretching to help stabilize the pelvis, hip adduction/abduction and arm work to include external rotation and shoulder adduction.
Amanda really enjoys working with expectant mothers and her first hand knowledge of how pilates can benefit you during your pregnancy is invaluable in ensuring that you have the best possible experience.
