Our classes will take you from your first trimester right up until you deliver. Before you start, read the following to understand how the program is designed to take you through your pregnancy safely.
We have designed the workouts specifically for each stage of your pregnancy in 4 week sections. You can follow the stages of our workouts week to week, but you can also choose to do a class from later on in the programme. Once you reach the next stage of your pregnancy, avoid choosing a class from a previous stage, for safety reasons.
For these classes you will need a pilates ball, a long resistance band and an optional loop resistance band. If you'd like to purchase an equipment pack for $29, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can choose to use your loop resistance band instead of knotting your long band as we do, if you prefer. We also use some light 1-2kg hand weights but you can use tinned cans as a substitute.
Disclaimer: Please consult your doctor before starting this exercise programme. As with any exercise programme, if at any point during the class you begin to feel faint, dizzy or have any physical discomfort, you should stop immediately and seek medical advice. We also recommend a pelvic floor check with a pelvic health physiotherapist at some stage in your pregnancy to ensure you are performing the pelvic floor exercises, and core exercises correctly. 20 weeks is a good time in your pregnancy to do this.
Unity Studios will not be responsible or liable for any injury or harm you sustain as a result of our Pilates programmes.
Enjoy! And please email any feedback to us.
