At Bodyfit Pilates & Yoga, we want to help you stay in the best shape possible during pregnancy to help make the transition from pregnancy to childbirth easier. By incorporating Pilates and yoga into your pregnancy fitness routine, you can help to improve your strength and mobility.
We offer a variety of classes for our pregnant members, each with unique goals in mind for helping you to get your body into shape. The following classes are the ones that we most often recommend to our pregnant members:
Kangatraining (mums & bubs)
In a 1hr Kangatraining class you will get a complete workout during which both cardiovascular endurance/flexibility and muscular capacity/strength are enhanced. Your baby does the workout with you and is worn in a baby carrier. Kangatraining is offered as a 8-10 week term.
