Post Natal Pilates - Stage 2
After completing Stage 1 for a minimum of two weeks, you may proceed onto Stag 2. Stage 2 begins with a 'rec-check' to ensure the muscles of the abdomen (rectus abdominis) are safely closing together so that you can progress onto this next level. If they have yet to close, you must return to Stage 1. This routine continues to focus on the 'drawing back together' of the pelvic floor and abs, strengthening your core muscles and helping you feel more like the old you! This stage should be practised for at least a further 2 weeks (and can be combined with Stage 1 if you have time) and before you begin the main workouts. Both Stage 1 & 2 may seem simple but they are the glue that will hold your new post natal body together, so continue practising elements as often as time allows.
