Prenatal & Postnatal Friendly*
Join me as we go through 45 minutes of Pilates that concentrates on creating stability in the body. This class is suitable for pregnancy as long as the below doesn't apply to you. You will also need a bolster or similar to support your back/keep your heart higher than your hips if you are in your second trimester or beyond.
