Pilates for New Moms

Hi friends!  How are you?  Lately I’ve really hit my stride with my workouts.  I’ve found that pilates has been a huge help for me post-baby.  Plus, it is a great workout to do with your little one.  Here are a few of my favorite poses!
 

C Curve Roll

From a seated position with knees bent and holding your baby, tuck your chin and roll back onto your tailbone engaging your abs and pulling them into your spine.  Straighten back up.  Repeat 5-10 times.

One Leg C Curve Roll

From the same position as the C Curve Roll, place baby on one knee and lift opposite leg to table top.  Holding baby, initiate C Curve roll while extending leg long.  Extend straight back up, drawing knee back in.  Repeat 5x then switch sides.

Forward C Curve

Sit in butterfly position with baby resting between your legs.  Pull abs up and in and sit tall with arms extended out to side.  Bring arms in front of your body like you are hugging a beachball and round forward tucking chin to chest.  Return to sitting and repeat 10x.

Readers, are you a fan of pilates?

I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!

Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.

My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
