Since moving to Colorado I've had the pleasure of teaching prenatal Pilates classes at Belly Up Spa in Lone Tree. It has been such a joy and I'm genuinely sad to leave our group of soon-to-be-mamas as I prepare for maternity leave.
I taught mat Pilates classes in their beautiful studio up until I was 37 weeks pregnant. That is a BIG belly doing Pilates! But it's so great for you during pregnancy that even on the days I felt lethargic and tired I left class feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
I had a great group of mamas in my class and it was fun to swap pregnancy stories and discuss all of the changes and decisions that come along with motherhood.
I spent most of my time at Belly Up teaching and only recently indulged in one of their spa treatments myself; a relaxing, hour long, non-toxic pedicure. They offer a full range of services from body treatments, to massages, to waxing and even 3D ultrasounds. The atmosphere is chic & relaxing and I can't wait to get a prenatal massage before this baby arrives.
Things I love about Belly Up:
- It's CLEAN. This is huge for me. The treatment rooms are spotless as are the pedicure chairs & tubs. Always important but particularly important when you have a baby you're looking out for as well.
- They use all organic ingredients in their facials, treatments, pedicures and manicures. This is so important and so hard to find. I believe it's always important to use organic beauty products but even more so during pregnancy. I had avoided pedicures until I found Belly Up because I know I can trust their products.
- It's a pregnancy (and mommy) spa, which means you don't have to worry about whether or not a product or treatment is safe. They cater to pregnant women and their staff is trained to provide pregnancy-safe services that will leave you feeling calm and confident.
- The owner, Rhonda, is passionate about what she does because of her own journey through pregnancy and motherhood. She's always there, smiling and offering great service to every woman that walks through the door. She's passionate about caring for women who are either just beginning their journey or well into the journey of motherhood and it shows.
I've thoroughly enjoyed every experience I've had a Belly Up and can't recommend it enough. If you're pregnant or have little ones I highly recommend checking out their treatments and fitness classes. They also host baby showers which would be a super cute way to pamper a tired mom-to-be.
