A Low-Impact Exercise Programme for Maintaining Strength and Flexibility.
This is the first guide to Pilates during and after pregnancy. Pilates is the ultimate form of exercise and relaxation for the pregnant body. It's also a fantastic, low-impact way to get back in shape post-delivery.
Follow the gentle exercises for less than half an hour a day and enjoy all these wonderful benefits:
- Improved circulation in the abdomen area
- Firmer, stronger and longer abdomen muscles
- Fast return to shape post-delivery
- Increased flexibility
- Improved breathing techniques
By taking care of your body, and your unborn baby, you will also find yourself eating a more healthy diet, and even your outlook on life and impending motherhood will benefit. All the exercises are gentle on your body and are easy to do at any stage of pregnancy.
