Beginner Mat–Pregnancy: Strengthening & Stretching–30min–Shanina Connell | Always Pilates
Shanina teaches a detailed class that focuses on strengthening your arm and hip muscles. She balances strengthening work with some gentle stretches after each exercise group.
You can do this class in all pregnancy trimesters. The class is also suitable for postnatal women whose abdominal wall has sufficiently healed to allow exercise. We recommend that you watch Shanina’s "Exercising after Pregnancy" modification video first, which teaches you how to test if you are ready to return to exercise.
Shanina was 25 weeks pregnant at time of video and has since given birth to a beautiful baby girl.
