Physical changes from the birthing process along with the other changes from pregnancy leave many post natal mums feeling flabby and deflated, often physically, mentally & emotionally. You are not alone – many mums go through the same experience. Getting back to your pre-pregnancy posture, shape, tone can seem a daunting task.
The Wellness Centre Wollongong's Post Natal Pilates/Yoga Workshop have been designed to commence from approx. 6 weeks after the birth of your baby. The workshop consist of appropriate Pilates & Yoga exercises staged & progressed for the post natal mum with exercises you can continue to practice at home. You will learn how to re commence exercise safely to improve core stability and postural control. This is very important for the new mum – to regain strength for lifting the baby e.g. out of the cot, in and out of the car and performing basic activities of daily living.
This workshop is designed with a focus on safety and to optimize post natal recovery. Get back where you want to be, ready to face the joys & challenges of motherhood. Aimed as transitory session, clients should feel comfortable to attend Intermediate Mat classes later. Small group class formats give you a chance to spend some quality time with your baby in the company of other mothers! You can exercise at your own fitness level in a non-threatening and supportive environment. These workouts whilst challenging and innovative also result in improved self-confidence.
Early motherhood is a very demanding time. Finding the time to exercise can be just as challenging. Making time for exercise however is of vital importance. Research shows that exercise to assists with weight loss, decreased symptoms of depression, decreased pain and increased energy and an improved sense of wellbeing. When training in group Pilates classes, motivation levels stay strong and strong & healthy bonds are formed. You will achieve your desired goals much faster whilst emotionally feeling support and friendship. These sessions have the great social benefit of being with other mums, new and experienced.
Mothers starting Pilates & Yoga after the birth learn good exercise technique before moving on to more challenging classes. Avoid classic exercise mistakes that many make, going too hard too quickly rushing to get into that special dress. You can be actually become fitter than you were before you became pregnant!
Babies are very welcome to come with mum. The Wellness Centre studio is carpeted, warm, cosy and comfortable. Not too hot, not too cold ... just right Feeding Baby prior to class and bringing a selection of toys can help. Mums & Bubs photos here.
