The pregnancy exercise class runs once a week at the River Bourne club (Chertsey). It is run by a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist for those who have pain in pregnancy.

Exercising in pregnancy helps to maintain or improve flexibility and strength which in turn can help to minimise pain. The class is run by a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist who is trained in pregnancy related exercise.

 

The class aims to improve:

  • Strength
  • Movement
  • Flexibility
  • Bodily awareness

The class is tailored and can be adapted for different ability levels. You might be guided or encouraged to make some exercises individual to meet your own goals.

 

What happens in the class?

Each class lasts 45 minutes and takes place in the ground floor exercise studio. It consists of a warm up, core strengthening exercises in a variety of positions and stretching.

 

After the class

We encourage you to also try to complete similar exercises again in the week (an exercise sheet will be provided) or if you have been provided a home exercise programme by your physiotherapist then you should complete this through the week.
