Pre/Post Natal Pilates

There are many benefits to continuing with regular exercise during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby.  Pilates is a safe form of exercise that can help both physically and emotionally during the pre and post natal stages.

Studio72 currently offers Pre and Post Natal classes live online via Zoom and also ON DEMAND.

Pre-Natal Pilates

Pilates during pregnancy, can help to maintain postural alignment and protect the spine as the body changes and the baby bump grows.

The weight of the baby bump will pull the pelvis and spine out of alignment, often causing pain and discomfort during pregnancy. By focusing on strengthening the pelvic floor, stomach and back muscles, the weight of the baby can be better supported.

Pilates also helps to keep an upright and open posture. This helps increase space internally for the organs, such as the lungs and digestive system, to work more efficiently as space reduces with the ever-growing baby.

The breathing and relaxation exercises during the sessions help prepare for birth and also help to, focus on the here and now, reduce tensions and stress and allows time for mum and baby to connect.  The movement, breathing and relaxation in the sessions will also have a positive impact on the development of the growing baby!

Whilst Pilates is a safe form of exercise during pregnancy, it is important to get medical clearance to attend.  Please listen to your body and STOP immediately if anything does not feel right or you begin to feel unwell.

Post-Natal Pilates

Post natal pilates is an effective way to help recovery after pregnancy and giving birth. Pilates can help regain confidence and control of the post natal body.  It helps to tone the body, strengthen and realign the body, as well as promoting circulation to aid healing.

Pilates also promotes mental well being during what can be a tiring and challenging time. Being part of a Post Natal class with other new mums also provides an opportunity to ask questions and gain support from others new mums in the same situation.

Clients must be a minimum of 6 weeks post vaginal delivery and 12 weeks post c section to attend the Post Natal Pilates classes and have medical clearance from care provider.  Whilst Pilates is a safe form of exercise for the post natal stages, it is important to listen to your body and STOP immediately if anything does not feel right or you begin to feel unwell.

What our customers say

For anyone who runs regularly or has just taken up running recently, I highly recommend Lynsey's Pilates classes for lengthening and strengthening the body and muscles that can get tight and overworked from the pounding of the pavements.

Grainne Harran, Dublin

I have been doing Lynsey's Pilate's classes for a few months now. I've found Lynsey's classes extremely beneficial to staying limber and injury free and to aid recovery after a run. lynsey packs so much into each class and the pace is easy to follow. There is an excellent flow with some relaxation at the end.

Grainne Harran, Dublin

"Lynsey's passion and knowledge, not only of Pilates but also of the anatomy/body is really reassuring and helpful. She explains each of the exercises clearly, and the benefits of it, so her zoom classes are easy to follow (how she keeps talking through her 2 minute plank challenges, I'll never know). I'd highly recommend Lynsey's classes".

Karen Glakin, Dublin

Graham Fagan, Dublin

"Lynsey is a true professional with a wealth of knowledge. I have been a client of Lynsey's for 3 years and I learn something new from her in every class. I have also worked with her one to one and gained so much respect, confidence and strength in my post natal body with her guidance. Her positivity is infectious and her classes are engaging and dynamic to suit everyone's ability"

Clare Hurley, Dublin
