Where: Caribou Baby Williamsburg/Greenpoint Map
Price: $75 for 5 class card, $20 for drop in
In this class, we will do a gentle and fun whole body workout, modifying along the way, as your baby grows and your body changes. The class will help you to:
- Work on your arms, legs, back and core
- Strengthen your pelvic floor
- Work on your posture and breathing
- Stretch your growing body
- Learn how to incorporate Pilates into your daily life so you can stay strong and injury-free
- Provide you with the camaraderie of other expecting women with whom to compare notes
Prenatal Pilates will not be too strenuous but you will feel like you moved your body and had a workout when you are finished. Movement helps circulation, so above all else it will give you energy and, combined with all of the above, will prepare you for labor and delivery.
Please note that tickets are not returnable or transferable the day of the selected class or anytime thereafter. For class cards, you have 6 weeks to use the 5 classes.
About the Instructor
It was the arrival of her son Chester in 1998 that first brought Karrie to the Pilates studio. Feeling out-of-sorts and gone soft, she turned to Pilates and the experience went to her core, not only restoring her healthy body, but also really boosting her self-confidence. She delved in, studying with world-renowned Master Instructor Romana Kryzanowska, opening her own studio, and writing two books aimed at helping clients to recover their inner strengths.
In her latest book, Post Pregnancy Pilates: An Essential Guide for a Fit Body After Baby, she draws on her personal and professional experience to enable her readers to get into the best physical and mental shape of their lives. She founded Centered, a studio for women, in 2005 to focus on post-partum recovery and general womens' health. She is happy to bring her knowledge and experience to new moms to help them enjoy their new bodies!
