Pilates, specifically is sought after by pregnant women because of its uncanny ability to strengthen the pelvic floor, prevent diastasis recti separation, and strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, reducing low back pain for the third trimester of pregnancy.
In your Pilates Classes at Ktizo, you'll find that most exercises draw focus and coordination to the area of the pelvic floor and core. We understand that as the center of gravity, this area serves us best when it is strong and when we are most familiar with it.
We recommend Instructor-Led Pilates, especially for pregnant women, because the instructor can guide, adjust, and provide instant answers to your questions. This will maximize your results for your time spent in class and ensure your ultimate safety as you perform each exercise.
