My pregalates for pregnancy dvds are totally unique in that they are the only trimester specific pilates for pregnancy workouts led by a pregnant instructor – me!
Each workout lasts between 45 and 60 minutes and I make sure that all areas of your body get targeted! Beginning with a gentle warm up, leading into the tummy to work on your balance and flexibility, before moving onto your side (lateral) muscles, followed by your legs, arms and bum. I don’t let up on the pelvic floor muscle once throughout the workout either!
Although each trimester is different, in essence the exercises are the same, which allows for a more thorough understanding of the movements. But there are crucial adjustments that are specific to each stage of your pregnancy. For example, the time spent on your back for the second and third trimester is greatly reduced.The pace of the exercises will also mirror the change in your energy levels and the range of movement alters to take into consideration the amount of relaxin that's present in your body.
I purposefully filmed four professional Pilates for pregnancy DVDs, which cover the 1st, 2nd, 3rd trimesters and the post-natal stage. You can buy them individually, or as a complete set, giving you a nice discount. They're a great present for yourself, or would make an ideal gift at a baby shower for a friend or relative. And because the DVDs are split into different trimesters, they can be started at anytime throughout the pregnancy. They are also available as a download too, saving you on the postage costs!
