Pre Natal Pilates classes are for pregnant women who want to keep exercising throughout their pregnancy. Manchester Physio also run a follow up Post Natal Pilates Class.

You can join our Pre Natal Pilates classes after 12 weeks into your pregnancy. We advise you ask your GP or midwife before joining our class and will have one of our specialist physiotherapist call you before attending to fill out a health form and answer any question you may have.

What to expect

Pre Natal Pilates classes are specially designed by our fully trained Pilates physiotherapists. You can expect a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the gentle, controlled exercise programme, adapted to suit your changing body.

Pilates can help to increase the stability of your spine and surrounding structures as the baby weight increases. Exercises aim to keep your balance, posture and movement at an optimum level to contribute to a positive pregnancy experience.

Following birth, you can continue onto our Post Natal Pilates class before returning to or following onto the Beginners or Intermediate - Advanced Pilates class.
