I have a new YouTube workout for you today!
Pilates has carried me through three pregnancies (one with twins!), one miscarriage, and three recoveries. Pilates has been my go-to form of exercise for the prenatal and postpartum seasons and I’m so thankful for the way it’s helped me to both maintain and rebuild my strength.
As an instructor, one thing that drives me crazy is seeing women jump back in to high impact workouts without taking the time to rebuild their core. Yes, it’s good to get moving again, but if you don’t give your body adequate time to recover and take the time to rebuild deep core strength and pelvic floor function, you’re setting yourself up for problems down the road (diastasis recti, bladder control issues, and pelvic floor dysfunction to name a few).
To help those of you who are ready to get back in to your exercise routine after having a baby, I created a short postpartum Pilates workout that you can do from home.

Use this workout as often as you can and be patient with yourself as you rebuild your strength. I encourage you to honor your body and don’t rush the process. You’ll be better for it down the road!
PS – if you’re pregnant and looking for prenatal-friendly workouts, check out my Prenatal Pilates Program. It includes workouts that are safe for all three trimesters!
