Happy Friday Everyone,
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday so far. Mine has been pretty rocking so far since I started it off with two AMAZING barre classes at 6:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Everyone always seems to have a little extra energy on Friday.
While scrolling through my news feed this morning, I came across this quote one of my cousins posted. It was such a good reminder to focus on the positive! I need to put this somewhere where I can see it every day. :) So much to be thankful for!
In true pregnant lady fashion, I ate the exact same thing for lunch every day this week - a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on gluten free bread with a big bowl of watermelon. I know it's no salad, but it sure was delicious!
Last week, I shared with you the benefits of Pilates during pregnancy and some precautions you should keep in mind throughout your each trimester. Today, I want to go into a little more detail on modifications for some of the most common Pilates exercises. Again, always consult your physician before performing any new types of physical activity while pregnant, and inform your Pilates instructor before class if you are expecting.
These modifications are here to serve as a guide, but ALWAYS listen to your body. If anything doesn't feel right, just leave it out.
|Using blankets or pillows to create a wedge underneath you will help you continue doing many |
exercises without having to lie flat on your back.
I hope this helps my future mommies out there feel more comfortable in their Pilates classes and my fellow instructors help guide their pregnant clients through class. Always feel free to email me with specific questions at LaurenEGeorge@gmail.com.
What kind of exercise did you enjoy during pregnancy?
