Favorite Prenatal Pilates Moves

Hi there!  How’s your week going?  After a week in Cape Cod, it’s tough getting back to the grind!  Luckily, I have a fun post for you today.  I am loving Pilates for pregnancy.  I’ve tried some great prenatal Pilates DVDs and I wanted to share a few of my favorite prenatal Pilates moves with you today!*

Pilates is great for pregnancy because:
– iI strengthens and stretches.
– It helps improve posture, which will assist you in carrying the extra baby weight and avoid aches and pains.
– The mind/body connection can help relax you.
– It is an all-over toner but it is core-focused. A strong core is super important for carrying that baby and childbirth.
