About this workshop

Any trainer will realise the benefits of taking mums-to-be from traditional Matwork variations to select exercise modifications on the Reformer. Using current exercise guidelines provided by the ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) and bearing in mind common anatomical and physiological changes, appropriate STOTT PILATES® exercise adaptations will be explored using the Reformer in innovative and beneficial ways. Workout safety and effectiveness remain paramount, and the client’s risk factors, pre-pregnancy fitness level, health concerns and fitness goals will all be taken in to account when creating new and ongoing programmes.
