We offer Prenatal privates and classes designed to help your body prepare for baby, and beyond. Learn postural support throughout the different trimesters and their accompanying loads, find appropriate pelvic floor support and tone, alleviate tension patterns, and discover ways to stay fit and comfortable from the first trimester to the third.
More and more research emphasizes the importance of being active during your pregnancy. It benefits both both mom and baby. Practicing Prenatal Pilates is a fun and effective way to care for and address the needs of your changing body, alleviate common aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and focus on breath for both support and pelvic floor relaxation. Being able to relax the pelvic floor during birth is essential for it to expand, thus preventing injuries during the amazing but demanding birthing process, and Prenatal Pilates is a great way to prehab it.
Should you find you need added support from a physiotherapist during pregnancy, we offer integrated services to help keep you moving and pain free through our team at our Envision Physio location. "With a focus on Women's Health, our physios are here to help you maintain your active lifestyle or, in some cases, to facilitate a safe and appropriate increase in activity during your pregnancy. Our Pilates & Physio teams work in concert to provide education around pelvic health and how to adequately prepare your body to deliver a baby, be it vaginally or by caesarean. " (Trish Gipson, physiotherapist).
"I did (and continue to do) Pilates at the Movement Studio throughout my two pregnancies. The work made my pregnancies comfortable, and I had amazingly quick post-recoveries. The instructors were conscious about modifying the exercises to make it safe for pregnancy but still kept it challenging."
- Melissa Yeung, Lawyer, Tenure Law
"Pilates changed my life - the way I move, run and work. The Movement Studio Pilates is second to none. I cannot recommend them more highly. So much so that I encourage friends, family and patients to try the Studio."
- Dr Sonya Kashyap, MD, MSc Epi, FRCSC, FACOG - owner, Genesis Fertility Centre
