Prenatal pilates Den Haag
Prenatal pilates has a significant role in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, the core, abdominal area and developing intentional control of your body. You start to feel relaxed, in balance and will have less pelvic instability problems.
Through awareness you learn to trust, let go, feel strong and in balance.
During pregnancy your body is constantly changing and trying to adapt to a new centre of gravity. You may feel stiffer in some areas of your body, weaker in others. Your hip joints move to accommodate your growing belly, and your pelvis pivots in a way that increases the pressure on your lower back. Your breasts may start to feel heavier and, as a result, intensify the pressure on your neck.
The prenatal pilates class aim to prevent, correct, and alleviate the discomforts caused by a constantly changing body. The exercises are not only safe, but they also accommodate each stage of your pregnancy.
Your (birth) partner is indispensable and plays an important role in the birth process. Birth Preps can therefore be booked additionally and in combination. You will learn how to play an active role in your own birthing experience together.
- Pilates during your pregnancy has a significant role in STRENGTHENING the pelvic floor muscles and the core, abdominal area. These muscles are key for SUPPORTING the spine, relieving back and neck tension, and stabilizing the hips.
- In addition to these POSITIVE EFFECTS, a stronger core region contributes to preventing excessive pelvic floor tear during childbirth, and to a faster recovery of your belly muscles after delivery.
- Being able to PHYSICALLY and MENTALLY RELAX is also important during your pregnancy.
- The classes will learn you to MORE EASILY LET GO via focused breathing, practicing your concentration, and developing intentional control of your body.
