HiLo Glow’s functional fusion of cardio conditioning, dynamic flow of Pilates and relaxation will leave your glowing on the inside and out.
This 45-minute class is for all women from those wanting to stay functionally strong during an active pregnancy through to women who like to “feel a workout”, improve their fitness, alignment, muscle balance, boost their fat loss potential and movement capability in a pelvic floor conscious way. Women during Motherhood will also benefit from the protective effect of this class has on bone, heart, brain health and body composition as we approach peri-menopause into our 40’s.
This pelvic floor and core conscious conditioning class is inspired by HIIT training as well as the flow and dynamic control elements of Barre and standing Pilates. The relaxation finish provides us a time to rest and restore balance to our body and mind.
EQUIPMENT REQUIRED - I'd recommend working barefoot for this class, so a yoga mat is ideal to work on. For the Barre element of the class, you will need something sturdy like a high-back chair or nearby worktop. We also incorporate resistance mini-bands, like these by My Meglio, but they are also available quite cheaply on Amazon or at shops like Declathon.
During pregnancy, HiLo Glow is a great option for you to stay active and provide an opportunity to safely get sweaty, whilst being alignment and pelvic floor-conscious. I offer plenty of "Hi" and "Lo" options so you can adapt as needed through your pregnancy. It is very individual how long you feel you can participate through your pregnancy after which you may like to look at my services specifically for pregnant women, other classes and/or my Birth Ready class.
Are you recently postnatal? HiLo Glow is such a great, functional class for Mums, but if you haven't done so already, I'd recommend you build your foundations using my Core Restore class or other New Mum 121 services initially. Re-connecting with your deep core and pelvic floor first, is key to creating a balanced core after having a baby before progressing to more challenging exercises.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Although this class, includes plenty of pelvic floor-conscious options, if you are experiencing any symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, Diastasis Recti, back or pelvic pain, I would recommend you get in touch first and maybe initially book in with me on a 121 basis if possible (virtually if necessary) to discuss your needs. Please check out my clinic sessions and treatments if you are in pain, experience pelvic floor dysfunction or have any ongoing postnatal issues.
