Classes

Prenatal Exercise Classes

Postnatal Exercise Classes

 

Term 1 is underway and Term 2 starts the week of 27th April. The term runs for 10-weeks. Book your spot now!

Prenatal Aquatic Classes

Exercising in water is one of the safest forms of exercise during pregnancy. The buoyancy of water supports the growing body, reducing impact through the pelvic joints and pelvic floor and promoting relaxation. During each class the physiotherapist will lead you through fun, safe exercises, with an emphasis on strengthening the pelvic floor, gluteals and core muscles. You can get a great workout in the pool using the gentle resistance of water and using aqua equipment makes the exercises more challenging. Classes can be started anytime and you can exercise right up until your due date.

During each class, the physiotherapist will lead you through safe and functional exercises with emphasis on core and pelvic floor strength. Enjoy a combination of strength, pilates, cardiovascular and fitball exercises. As well as receiving excellent instruction, supervision and exercises custom-designed for pregnancy, this is an opportunity to meet other pregnant women. You can join a class at any time during your pregnancy and take part until your due date.

Postnatal Exercise Classes  

Our postnatal exercise classes have been designed to help you return to your pre-baby fitness, while ensuring that exercises are specific and safe. Each class is run by a qualified physiotherapist who understands the needs of the body in the postnatal period. Classes focus on restrengthening the pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles, as well as building overall strength and fitness. Class numbers are kept small to allow the physiotherapist to tailor exercises as needed. Classes are held in venues that are cool in summer and warm in winter. Bring your baby (and your pram) with you and enjoy taking time for yourself that will leave you feeling energised, knowing your baby is close by, happy and safe.
