9780007133147: Pilates for Pregnancy: Gentle and Effective Techniques... for Before and After Birth

Pilates For Pregnancy provides exercises perfectly designed to exercise the pelvic floor and strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, preparing the pregnant woman for the baby’s birth. It is also highly suitable to use in the months after giving birth to help women regain a flat stomach and the ‘longer, leaner, stronger’ physique Pilates is famed for.
- uses only body weight and gravity so there’s no excessive straining.
- uses gentle, controlled movement so there’s no unnecessary bouncing around.
- excellent postural and breathing advice
- uses techniques that will relax as well as energise, so you’ll feel better at this potentially stressful time.
