Pilates Instructor Heather Thomas from IsoFit, will speak on the benefits of Pilates and will demonstrate some exercises to help us get back in shape.

Pilates offers the perfect post-natal workout and can be practiced by mothers in varying post-natal stages. Primarily, Pilates strengthens the core control muscles of the lower abdominal region and pelvic floor, creating a muscular corset to support the spine; strengthens and lengthens the back muscles; and blends toning and stretching to alleviate muscular tension arising from repetitive physical movement (bending over, carrying, nursing, et al). It can also help participants re-discover pre-pregnancy body awareness by focusing on balance, posture and breath to facilitate movement.
