Healthy pregnancy through pilates

Pilates and yoga for pregnant women

Pilates and yoga for women - especially for pregnant women

The course is a special program with optimized exercises for pregnant women. Gentle and powerful muscle buildup, stretching and relaxation for the muscles and conscious breathing are optimal premises for a normal birth.

The Pilates-method is an exercise program that helps you to positively influence the emotional and physical changes of your body during pregnancy and to develop a unique feeling for yourself.

When the body changes its posture during pregnancy, it can be balanced out and back pain can be reduced. It will be easier to carry the weight of your belly with a specific muscle training and relaxation exercises. Conscious breathing will lessen discomforts and will give you a feeling of well-being and ease that will transfer to your baby.

Yoga for pregnant for women

Pregnancy and birth are natural development processes. Initially yoga describes the development path of the whole human. The yoga positions also known as asanas are a part of that. With examination of the asanas as well as the shapinga aesthetic form, learning steps can be achieved which can stimulate the development of the complete body.

The pregnancy,this small everyday wonder is characterized by development and new beginnings. A new human emerges and the parenthood begins. The increasing physical bond during the pregnancy eventually leads to a widening f.e in relationships.

So that something can grow more easier, it needs an appropriate development space. Calmness, power and an orientation of wiser objectives with appropriate inner ideas can widen the space. For example in yoga these potentials are stimulated.

Naturally the physical tightness intesifies over the course of the pregnancy. Internally a lot of movement will start to begin. The external leeway of the women will eventually get more and more restricted. The growing human takes up further space in the restricted conditions until it leaves it in the birth. Via the control of consciousness, development of feelings and an open breathing, a new widening and more flowing movement can be achieved.

In the physical retroactive effect the open breathing can f.e result in a more light feeling. The diaphragm can relax wherby the room for development can be expanded. These exercises encourage a more powerful, smooth and relaxed musculature.

These potentials of calmness, persistent energy as well as the relaxing and happy approach to a new beginning in pregnancy, birth and in general life are all encouraged with the asana practice on different levels.

Pregnancy and birth are natural moving development processes. The joy in the art of movement and its arrangement in yoga are good companions and orientation points on your path.
