FAQ

Why yoga and pilates during Pregnancy?

Yoga and Pilates are the best ways to exercise during pregnancy. They’re low impact and focus on deep stability and postural muscles to help with your changing body. Keeping fit and strong during pregnancy helps you keep a healthy body and nourishes your growing baby. It helps to maintain strength for your labour and bounce back quicker postnatally. It also strengthens your core and abdominals, tones the arms, legs and buttocks.

Can I continue classes during my 1st Trimester?

If you’re experienced in Yoga and Pilates you can continue to come to Slow Flow or Yin Yoga classes after you get your Doctors okay. We recommend you do Beginners Reformer class as more advanced classes use strong abdominal contractions, which are not advised for a healthy pregnancy.

Can I attend Pregnancy Yoga and Pilates classes if I’m a Beginner?

Yes. Our Pregnancy Yoga and Pilates classes cater to women of all stages of pregnancy and levels of experience.
