Motherhood is hard going on your body…………….Reward Yourself.
Aqua4mums postnatal classes are a fabulous way to return to exercise after having your baby.
You can start postnatal classes anytime after your 6 week check up but, 6 months or more is fine too, whenever you’re ready. We had someone start when her baby was 5!!
The 40 mins is an active fitness-based class with everyone working at their own level, with some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT is all the rage in fitness circles currently) but in a very low impact environment. This is a perfect combination for joints and pelvic floor adjusting to life after pregnancy. We do plenty of arm, shoulder and upper back stretching and strengthening (the second most complained about area after childbirth!!) And of course, lots of deep abdominal and pelvic floor strengthening work to ready for return to land-based exercise. There’s also time for relaxation and whole body stretching with some most important ‘me’ time.
Early motherhood has a lot of very repetitive mechanical postures with feeding, burping, carrying and nappy changing, filling your day, and night! Doing them with a tired and recovering body leads to aches and pains.
In the warm and lovely pool let all those aches and pains melt away.
Starts: 24th May 2022 for 6 weeks, 7:50-8:30
