WHY PRENATAL BARRE?
BENEFITS OF PRENATAL BARRE
For mums-to-be, barre workouts are ideal. With the Pilates style movements that focus on strengthening your core, hips and legs - it's exactly what you need right now to stay stable & strong. The challenging arm movements that strengthen & sculpt your upper body, will get you ready for nursing your little one.
Taking the time to build a strong physical foundation now will help you feel better throughout your pregnancy & delivery, & will also help you to bounce back all that much quicker postpartum.
Unlike most other studios where you need to attend special pre-natal classes (usually scheduled at really inconvenient times), you can safely join in any of our timetabled workouts after you have attended a pre-natal introductory session. It's all because of the smaller number of participants in our classes that allow our instructors to provide a more personalised level of service (other studios will squeeze 30+ people in a class, whereas our classes are capped at a max 10 participants)
PRE-NATAL BARRE INTRODUCTORY SESSION:
Before you're ready to jump into any of our regular classes, you just need a better understanding of what you should & shouldn't be doing. In our 'Pre-Natal Barre Introductory Session' you’ll be introduced to the simple modifications you’ll need to know for your barre workouts, while also learning some general guidelines for exercise during this special time.
If you’re in your second trimester and have received clearance from your medical professional we look forward welcoming you at our lovely and friendly studio.

BOOK A PRENATAL INTRODUCTION SESSION
"If someone had told me that I would be able to keep training right through my pregnancy I wouldn’t have believed it. I’m no gym junkie, and certainly not someone who is super fit. However, Adriana made it possible with sessions tailored to my changing body and energy levels, and strong attention to balancing exercises to prepare me for the post pregnancy challenges of caring for a baby while preventing injury to joints and muscles."
Which BBS workouts are best for me while pregnant?
Our BBS Signature Method and our BBS Flow & Stretch class are a fantastic due to incorporate into your lifestyle.
Will I be able to do most moves?
Generally speaking- yes. But this is why you must attend a pre-natal intro session so we can fully explain any modifications. It’s also a great opportunity to discuss any individual needs you might have. Book in for our next schedule session.
Where do I find maternity workout clothes?
It’s tough to find – but for the most comfortable pregnancy tights check out Active Truth who have a dedicated pregnancy range, with a super stretchy waist that can be worn over or under your belly bump.
Will I be the only pregnant lady in the general classes?
Possibly. But don’t worry; we will love having you in class and we have one of the most lovely community of ladies who will welcome you with open arms. It’s not an inconvenience to anyone. It’s actually inspirational for others to see you maintaining an active lifestyle during such a special time in your life.
