Pregnancy, Postpartum & Beyond Workshop
What You Were Never Told About Your Pregnant and Postpartum Body
Pregnancy, Postpartum & Beyond Workshop is for you if you answered YES to any two of these questions:
• Are you barely able to stand long enough to do simple household chores; and feel guilty about not being able to hold your kids?
• Do you feel overwhelmed and lacking confidence in how your body looks, works and feels?
• Do you throw your back out just carrying your child or a bag of groceries?
• Do simple movements like turning in bed and getting out of bed cause pain?
• Do you have trouble walking or experience pain from sitting too long?
• Are you wondering if you'll ever be able to return to your old self?
Mama, this workshop provides a safe and non-judgmental virtual space to discuss all these issues and more.
Led by women's health specialist, Janet Perrino, will discuss common pregnancy and postpartum body concerns and lead you through exercises to speed recovery after labor.

Pilates Mat Springboard
The new Pilates Mat Springboard class has replaced and enhanced the traditional mat classes we will offer.
Pilates mat exercises focus on strengthening the muscles of the trunk (core) while increasing overall flexibility of both the spine and hips.
A Pilates Springboard consists of a wall unit, complete with the springs from a Pilates Cadillac. One of the great benefits of the Springboard is the ability to change the tension to suit each client and each exercise.
The Springboard is a terrific tool for integrating your limbs into the workout, challenging your core and building strength in your hips and shoulder girdle. The variety of exercises is limitless.
