The Antenatal Aqua class starts with a warm up and progresses through:

  • arm strengthening exercises;
  • cardio exercises;
  • trunk and pelvic mobility/strengthening exercise;
  • stamina building exercises;
  • both Pilates and Yoga inspired stretching/core strengthening.
  • Finishing with birth preparation/relaxation and pelvic floor exercises.

At the end of your 60 minutes, we aim to have you feeling:

  • Supple, strong and fit,
  • Pleasantly tired ready for a good nights sleep,
  • Happy and confident with your body and its ability to carry your baby
  • Tremendously positive about the birth to come.

You can exercise as energetically or lightly as you wish, picking your own intensity while joints are always supported and cushioned by the water.  We use a variety of floats, noodles and aqua-dumbells, all equipment is provided.

You will meet other mums to be and time for chat is always included!

You will have the benefit of an experienced physiotherapist to guide you and answer any questions you may have
