The Postnatal Pilates class is designed to help your body recover from the birth of your baby, whether you are 6 weeks postpartum or 1 year postpartum by helping you safely awaken your deep abdominals and pelvic floor. Each class is a combination of education and exercise, and it is Carrie's goal to strengthen your body from the inside in order to prevent common postpartum injuries and get you back to your pre-pregnancy fitness level (or better)!
In the first half of class we will discuss topics like What is Your Core, How to Care For a Baby Without Spraining Your Spine, Let's Talk About Sex (after) Baby, Return of Menses and Birth Control Options, and Eating Healthy on the GO!
The second half of each class will contain expertly designed Pilates exercises that will increase in difficulty each week to challenge your core to a greater extent. By the end of the program, you will be ready to safely transition to a community-based Pilates class or resume your favorite exercise programs.
Each class will end with breathing, relaxation training, and a different meditation each week.
