Pregnant Pilates instructor, Alexandra Wisdom, has created Pilates For Pregnancy, a safe, online home based routine for every week of pregnancy.

When Alexandra Wisdom, Leading London Pilates instructor and co-owner at Daniel Alexandra Holistic Health and Fitness, http://www.danielalexandra.com, found out she was pregnant with her second child earlier this year, she wanted to use her years of experience to create a convenient pre natal workout, but knew that the demands of exercise constantly change through pregnancy, so she designed Pilates For Pregnancy, a free online Pre Natal exercise system.

A common concern for Pregnant women is whether the exercises they perform are safe or relevant to their current stage of pregnancy. Alexandra will be performing a series of routines with correct form, week by week, through each trimester, so participants can be confident they will be getting the most relevant workout available. There is a new workout for every week of pregnancy, with exercises and intensity structured accordingly.

Although there are many pregnancy workouts available, this is unique as it removes the stress of deciding which exercises to do and when it is best to do them.

Alexandra, who has been teaching Pilates for 10 years, believes that following this system is the next best thing to one on one coaching.

‘I’ve trained countless women in the lead up to child birth and I wanted use that experience to create something that would deliver a genuine benefit to as many people as possible. Most generic pre natal workouts don’t take the stage of term into account, whilst without variety it is easy to lose interest. The routines in this series have been used and perfected with my private clients over many years, so they are proven to be safe and effective as well as lots of fun.’

Pilates has been shown to help ease the process of child birth and assist a speedier recovery as it strengthens core muscles including the pelvic floor and helps prevent Post Partum issues such as Diastasis Recti and Pubis Symphysis Diastasis. It also tones and strengthens the entire body and keep excess baby weight off. This system enables more women to practice Pilates safely and effectively from home.

Alexandra wanted to reach out to as many women as possible to increase awareness of the importance of healthy exercise during pregnancy, which is why she took the decision to offer access to the system free of charge.
