Prenatal Strength and Stretch fitness series designed for new mothers and mothers-to-be.
Created by a professional pre-post natal fitness specialist, it's a mix of resistance training, pilates, and yoga and great to assist you physically and emotionally in managing the changes that are happening to you during and after pregnancy. A safe and effective workout program will help you to build stronger muscles to maintain a healthy weight, improve posture and the proper function of your pelvic floor muscles.
There are also mental benefits, as there is a mindfulness component and the class teaches you how to release muscle tightness, tension, bring emotional balance, reduce stress, and increase self-awareness.
You will have an opportunity to connect with other moms as you enjoy the benefits for both you and your baby.
