Mums and Bubs pilates is a great way to re-gain muscle strength and tone following the birth of your baby. In these classes, your abdominal muscle activation will be monitored to ensure you optimise exercises and enhance recovery. Babies are welcome in the Pilates classes, no babysitter required.
The pilates method of exercising focuses on gentle strengthening of core and postural muscles of the body. Pregnancy Pilates classes are a great way of managing aches/pains throughout pregnancy, preparing for childbirth and reducing recovery time following childbirth.
Physiotherapy can help with a broad range of conditions throughout pregnancy and in the post-natal period. The most common conditions that we treat include lower back pain, pelvic pain, abdominal muscle separation, upper back/neck pain and tailbone pain.
What i love about Arna Opperman ‘s pilates is the friendly atmosphere, expertise and the knowledge, such a fun , yet relaxing environment which keeps me coming back. from being pregnant to having my baby the help and guidance especially with my muscle separation has been amazing cant thank you enough, i cant recommend it enough.
I have been doing Arna’s pilates classes both antenatal and postnatal. In fact, I haven’t stopped yet and it’s been over 2 years, that’s how much I love it. My son has had health challenges and I was taken back by the genuine concern that everyone showed. So much so that awareness of the condition and opportunity to sign a petition was seen by over 10,000 people through Arna’s pilates and physio Facebook page.
Arna and her team are extremely professional and I have no doubt that I wouldn’t have had the excellent pregnancies and birthing experiences I had without doing her pre & post pregnancy pilates classes. If I were to have three children I’d be back but instead I would much rather write this testimonial hahaha…
