I am pregnant. What classes are suitable for me?

Physiotherapy guided sessions are one of the best ways to exercise during pregnancy as it is low impact and focuses on deep stability and postural muscles to help accommodate for the changes to the body during pregnancy. Our Pilates Physiotherapists have training in Women’s health physiotherapy and are qualified to understand the changes to the body during pregnancy and the influence these changes have on exercise capacity. The clinical physiotherapist-run exercise sessions are the only classes suitable for pregnant or newly post-natal mothers as these allow the therapist to make the necessary changes to the exercises as the pregnancy progresses and tailor the program to your individual needs.
