All mamas (Pregnant and Postpartum) need to be cleared for exercise by their respective doctors. Anyone with a severe or diagnosed case of Diastasis Recti, please contact me before registering for this class.
Plan on eating a light snack (think protein!) approximately 45-minutes before class to keep you feeling strong while we work out.
*Non-mobile babies are welcome! Bring a blanket for your little one. Sorry, any babies on the move are not permitted in this class (to keep them safe)! *
“Can I do this move? How many reps? Should I be sweating?” Whether you were a marathon runner or you didn’t have an exercise routine pre-baby, our bodies need modified movements during this amazing life event. Each exercise in this class has be carefully selected to safely challenge mamas, both baby-on-board mamas and babies-on-the-side mamas.
Trained by leading pre/postnatal fitness expert Lindsay Brin, I decided to pursue this Pre/Postnatal Fitness Certification soon after having my own little guy. I remember hearing mixed messages about what was/wasn’t safe during my pregnancy, how much was safe to do, not finding class offerings in my area (besides yoga) which tailored to the pregnant population, and still felt just as confused entering working out postpartum! How could I safely move my body in addition to strengthening all of the muscles supporting my body’s amazing change? After completing my certification, I knew it was time to share what I learned with more local mamas!
