PRE & POST NATAL PILATES ON THE MAT

 

A warm up will include the following:-

 

  • Breathing

  • Gentle Stretching

  • Spine Mobilization and stabilization

  • Spine rotation and extension 

 

There needs to be a rhythm and flow to the warm up as this helps send energy throughout the body.

 

In my classes I will guide you through your trimester's adapting the exercises as necessary.
