When in your second trimester and with consultation from your doctor, yes, no-impact pilates can be perfectly safe for you and your little one inside!
Our certified pilates instructors monitor you closely to ensure you’re not doing exercises that place undesirable stress and strain on your abdominal cavity. There is a safe and correct way to work your abdominals pregnant though! Additionally, as of the second trimester you will avoid laying on your stomach and spending too much time on your back.

Pilates is beneficial to strengthen your tiny stabilizer muscles for a strong core, and pairing that with prenatal or restorative yoga can result in increased relaxation through breathwork. Ask your Anahana Wellness Advisor on the best program to incorporate yoga into your prenatal pilates program. Learn more about piliates or yoga benefits.
