A personalized Studio Pilates program is the ideal method of Pilates during pregnancy and post child birth. Your own Studio Pilates program will speed up your recovery after the birth of your baby.
During this early stage it is important to regain deep abdominal and pelvic floor strength to help support your lower back, following the demands of pregnancy & birth, along with managing a newborn (feeding, lifting, bending). Strengthening Pelvic Floor will also help avoid any incontinence issues which affect so many women after child birth. Postnatal Pilates sessions will help you get the core muscles strong again and enable you to return to full activities. The sessions will also improve posture, flexibility, tone and fitness. Exercises will be modified for women with cesarean sections, DRAM (abdominal separation) or recovering from pelvic joint pain from pregnancy.
DESCRIPTION OF SESSION TYPES
Initial Assessment : All of our clients, regardless of injury or fitness level, begin their Studio Pilates experience with an Initial Assessment so that the ideal tailored program can be developed to meet their needs. During the Assessment session we conduct the following : Postural screening, Balance Testing, Flexibility Testing, Core Endurance and Muscle Strength Testing. Based on the results of the tests, your medical/injury history and in consultation with you we develop the program goals from which we can then develop in individualised program to achieve your goals. Duration approx. 45 min.
Private Studio Session, duration 55 min. Private Pilates sessions enable the highest level of supervision and guidance from your instructor. The first session after an Initial Assessment will generally be a Private Studio Session in order to learn how to engage the core musculature, learn important Pilates and movement concepts, learn how to use the equipment safely, and introduce you to your individualised program. After the Initial Private Studio Sessions you can opt to continue Private sessions or progress into a Duet Studio Session.
Duet Studio Session, duration 55 min. Duet Studio sessions also enable a very high level of supervision and guidance from your instructor. The instructor will work with two participants within the session. A great way of getting a high level of interaction with the instructor.
Small Group Studio Session, duration 55 min. Once you have an understanding of how to perform the technique correctly and effectively you can opt to join the Small Group Sessions, where the instructor will work with a small group of individuals (maximum of 4) with their individual programs.
Re-Assessment : After approximately 8-12 weeks we recommend performing a Re-Assessment to measure the progress that has been made, and modify the program accordingly. Duration approx. 30 min.
