Free Pre- and Post- Natal Pilates Classes Offered at The Connection
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 • 1:40pm
The Connection will be hosting a FREE 3 part Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates Workshop on November 7th, 14th, and 21st from 12:00-1:00pm.
This three part workshop will help new and expecting mothers prepare their bodies and minds for labor and teach exercises to improve posture, breathing, and strength during pregnancy, through delivery, and beyond.
Each class will begin with breathing exercises to increase lung capacity, making women more comfortable as the baby grows. The class will then progress toward safely strengthening the core and working on pelvis floor and leg muscles to affect posture, promoting improved balance. Classes finish with upper body stretches and guided relaxation.
Practicing Pilates during pregnancy aids in relaxation. Women experience a relief in tension as they stretch their spine and upper body muscles through techniques modified to their bodies and ability.
For women who have already given birth, Pilates is a wonderful way to return to health. This workshop will strengthen abdominals, and stretch those tired back and neck muscles women get from carrying the baby.
Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates will be taught by Kendra Thyne, certified Pilates instructor. Kendra has been teaching pre- and post-natal Pilates since 1996. Kendra has four children, and has practiced Pilates throughout each pregnancy.
This workshop is FREE to Connection members and non-members, but registration is required. Doctor’s permission is also required, newborns welcome! To register, call 908-273-4242 or stop by 79 Maple Street in Summit.
