Strengthen Your Weakened Core And Pelvic Muscles With Our Effective Sessions For Post Natal Pilates In West Brompton

Bare Neck

In the postpartum period, there are many physical and emotional changes. After pregnancy, adding low-impact exercises to your daily routine can help you regain energy, flexibility, and strength. You will also feel more like yourself if you stay active and healthy. 


Pilates focuses on strengthening and challenging the core muscles. It includes the muscles in your midsection, such as the stomach muscles (abdominals), the waist muscles (obliques), the back muscles (erector spinae and multifidi), the pelvic floor muscles, and the buttocks (glutes), which are weakened after giving birth.


While you are going through this time of transition, post natal pilates can help you find balance, relieve stress, and get in shape quickly and safely. It places minimal stress on your joints which is important after the extra strain of carrying your baby during and after pregnancy.

Fortunately, We at La Dolce Studio offer safe and effective post natal pilates in West Brompton. We assure you that every exercise is designed specifically for postpartum women, both those who have delivered vaginally and those who have had C-sections.

Our Pilates instructors are well-trained to promote your overall health, improve muscle tone and strength, and achieve better posture. They will be with you during the whole session to ensure your safety.

La Dolce’s post natal pilates aims to help you in your journey as a mum. By joining our class, you can gently ease your way back into exercise, restore your weakened muscles, and mobilise the spine to help improve your posture.

About Post Natal Pilates

Developed by Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a versatile exercise. Exercises like this one help you improve your posture and movement. The exercises target the back muscles, the lower abdominal muscles, and the pelvic floor muscles, which have a huge impact on posture, strength, and balance.


The physical demands of being a new mother and pregnancy-related discomfort and pains can be relieved with post natal Pilates. Generally, it is recommended to begin exercising at least six weeks after the birth of your baby to avoid injury or excess fatigue.

While you were pregnant and during delivery, your body changed and adapted. There is possible trauma to your pelvic floor muscles and stretching your abdominal muscles. It is crucial that you regain pelvic floor and core strength postpartum to prevent future complications.


Post Natal Pilates Exercises You May Encounter

If you're a new mom considering exercising post-birth, Pilates is a perfect choice. This program has also proven highly effective in building women's inner core muscles after pregnancy and easing them back into exercise. Here are some post natal pilates exercises: 

1) Lunge To Kneeling Combo

A combination of lunges and kneeling will challenge your stability and glute strength. Your posture will also be improved if you keep your spine long. You should repeat this on both sides.

2) Roll Up

With this gentle exercise, you'll strengthen your abdominal muscles and increase your spine's mobility.

3) Bridge

A bridge exercise strengthens your hamstrings and glutes. With the single-leg variation, you can also challenge your stability. You should repeat this on both sides.

4) Grand Plié

As you move in this externally rotated position, the Grand Plié will exercise your inner thighs and hips.

Exercises To Avoid After Pregnancy

Exercises such as planks, push-ups, and sit-ups can be counter-productive to the postnatal body. For squats and deadlifts, choose lighter weights if you intend to supplement your Pilates practice with weightlifting.

Avoid exercises that involve back extension, such as Swan and Swimming, right from the start. Focus on opening your chest and shoulders before engaging in any back extension. Using this method, you won't hurt yourself while back bending.


Benefits Of Our Post Natal Pilates In West Brompton

1) Increases Well-Being And Confidence

A benefit of post-natal Pilates is that it teaches you to focus on what's happening inside your body instead of just looking at your appearance. During Pilates exercises, you will learn to listen, understand, and reconnect with your body.

2) Improves The Pelvic Floor Muscle

An essential part of any post natal Pilates program is pelvic floor exercises. To improve posture, core strength, and stability, this exercise teaches women how to reconnect and strengthen their pelvic floor muscles.

3) Strengthens Core Muscles

You may feel more clumsy or unstable when pregnant due to changes in posture and weight distribution. Your balance is improved by Pilates because it increases your core strength and teaches you to be sensitive to changes in posture.

4) Improves Diastasis Recti

Pregnant women are at risk of developing DR in about 60% of cases. It occurs when the rectus abdominis is separated, usually around the area of the belly button. Women can strengthen their abdominal muscles through post natal pilates.

5) Gets You Out Of The House
Post natal Pilates is a social activity. The classes will be full of other mums looking for a chance to socialise. This means you will meet and talk to other mums who experience similar situations as you. In addition, classes will provide some much-needed 'me' time, which can be invaluable during the initial weeks of motherhood.

  • Can osteopathy treat my recurring migraine?
    Various factors can cause migraines. Through osteopathy, we can identify the root cause of your migraine and resolve it. Osteopathy relieves muscular spasms and stress in the body by using hands-on therapy. It will facilitate the body's natural healing process to allow improved mobility and enhanced drainage of bodily fluids for your migraine to be gone for good.
  • How many sessions do I need to get treated?
    The number of sessions you need to get fully treated varies depending on your body’s condition. It can also vary depending on how cooperative you are in getting the treatment done right. In short, there is no general number of sessions that we can give for everyone since treatment of this kind must be customised to each client.
