PRENATAL AND POSTPARTUM WORKOUTS
Our prenatal workouts program caters to mothers-to-be that wish to be physically active in order to prepare for an active role during the birth and after it. Moderate physical activity both during the pregnancy and immediately after has been shown to positively influence the woman’s psychophysical condition, as it prevents and reduces certain inconveniences that may occur.
A session typically consists of exercises for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, strengthening exercises with an emphasis on muscle balance, exercises for the spine and correct posture, balance and mobility exercises. We pay special attention to exercise for pelvic floor muscles and other supporting structures of internal organs.
Babies are of course welcome to attend the class with their mothers and to take part in some of the exercises if they get restless. The workouts are specifically adapted for each individual with regard to their physical condition and the stage of their pregnancy or how much time has passed since the birth.
