Keeping up with an exercise program can be difficult when you’re pregnant, especially during the first trimester when you might feel nausea and tired. One of the safest and most effective way to stay active is with Pilates, which strengthens the most important muscles that you’ll use during pregnancy and labor. Pilates improves breathing technique, concentration and body awareness, which even help your labor. With Pilates you can recover faster back to pre pregnancy figure and shape.

Physical Therapists are recognizing Pilates as one of the most successful methods to treat many injuries, spinal disorders and joint diseases.
