Post natal Pilates class. Second of a series of three. Run by Vicky. NHS physiotherapist and experienced Pilates instructor.
We use blocks or a pillow between our knees for comfort in some of the exercises so have that ready before you start. We finish the class with some gentle stretches.
We start the class in sitting and warm up with some upper body stretches. We then move into four-point kneeling to gently mobilise our spines with a cat stretch. Staying in this position to then challenge our core muscles.
We then move down onto our backs to strengthen our pelvic floor and deep abdominal core muscles further.
We finish the class with some gentle stretches.
