Mondays are for ‘Mums n’ Bubs Pilates in the Park’ at Greenslopes

New mums planning to get back in shape or improve their health after giving birth may take advantage of a free Pilates class at the Thompson Estate Reserve in Greenslopes.

Held every Monday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., the workout routines at the Mums n’ Bubs Pilates in the Park are especially customised for new mothers and their babies.

Pilates is a great way for new mums to regain their core muscle strength and firm up their abdominal area after being stretched for nine months. It can also prepare their upper back and chest for nursing and carrying their little one.

Pilates may help new mothers gain hip and pelvis support to reduce pelvic floor discomfort after pregnancy. The stretches will also help tight muscles around the legs that may have not been used a lot during the pregnancy’s last trimester.

The Monday morning routine is also a great way for new mums to bond with their bub. But if you don’t want to bring your baby along then that’s fine too, as you can use this session for your much-needed ME-time.
