Is it important to work out after giving birth?

As we become more conscious about self-care, pre and postnatal exercises started to gain more attention from new parents. It is normal for expecting moms to have increased appetite during pregnancy in order to absorb enough nutrition. However, this may also result in weight gain. Prenatal and postpartum exercises are necessary for a smooth delivery and can help new moms get back in shape as soon as possible after giving birth.

What exercises are suitable for postpartum moms?

Our prenatal/postpartum training program will cover the entire process from pregnancy preparation to delivery and postpartum recovery. The training program is designed and adjusted according to the different body types of different moms. It helps reduce the pain before and after giving birth and can effectively accelerate the process of recovering the body shape after delivery. Under the guidance of professional teachers, moms can expect visible results with much lower risks of training injuries.

Whether prenatal or postpartum, exercise sessions need to be gradual and should not be rushed. Moms need to take into account their personal condition and gradually improve the psychological stress and physical problems caused by pregnancy to return to their best selves.

What is the difference between Pilates and Yoga?

If you are more interested in strengthening your body and reducing stress and relaxing your mind, then yoga will be more suitable for you. If you are looking to improve your posture and body lines, such as a hunched chest or belly fat, Pilates will help more by strengthening your core muscles through exercise.

Recommended Postpartum Exercises
Postpartum Yoga
Yoga is a system that helps the body reach its potential by raising awareness. Yoga has been practised for thousands of years, from 300 BC to the present day. It is a slow, comfortable practice that improves the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body, bringing the mind and spirit into harmony. Our postpartum yoga program is specially designed to help new moms exercise and get back into shape. The program not only helps to restore body and shape but also helps to regulate mental anxiety through yoga breathing and meditation, helping mothers to regain their physical and mental health.
Postpartum Pilates
Pilates is a body training program that combines yoga, dance and gymnastics to strengthen the body's core muscle groups and enhance muscular endurance for the purpose of slimming and weight loss. Pilates helps with body contouring while improving flexibility and balance. It can strengthen muscle endurance, solve the problem of lower back and lumbar pain, and relieve the symptoms of shoulder and neck pain and stiffness. Like yoga, Pilates has the effect of enhancing physical sensation and allowing the body to relax.

Combining Eastern and Western medical exercise concepts, Pilates can safely and effectively help restore the uterus, bladder and other organs. Most of the body's muscle groups will be involved in the exercise, large muscle groups and deep small muscle groups will be better stimulated and exercised, thus accelerating the recovery process of the pelvic floor muscle groups. In addition, Pilates will not lead to muscle thickening, which is ideal for postpartum moms.
