Trimester 2 - 3 Month Access
In Trimester 2 we will work more on strength with resistance band workouts targeting the whole body. Each month we will focus on pelvic ring closure with exercises to build strength in the pelvic floor, low back, low tummy, adductors, glutes and hamstrings. Strengthening these key muscle groups reduces the chances of pelvic girdle pain as we compensate for the hormonal effects. Month 5 is peak onset of pelvic girdle pain month, so this month is all about prevention and treatment if you are suffering from this. As our baby bumps grows we will work on spinal alignment and posture to support our changing body. Our relaxation this month is a mindfulness technique to keep us present when the future is so exciting, unknown and at times overwhelming.
Equipment needed: Resistance Band and Small Pilates Ball
Suitable for: Women in their second Trimester of pregnancy. Women who are new to exercise can begin exercise from their second trimester. We recommend engaging in our sessions relevant to your current trimester only.
