ABOUT THE CLASS

Prenatal Ballet 

At any time of life, exercise will help with your physical wellbeing. However, it’s even more important during pregnancy and after you give birth.

A stronger, more flexible and healthier body can help you to have an easier labour and quicker recovery. Your unborn baby also benefits, with her foetal cardiac system growing stronger and healthier as a result of Barre & Baby workouts.

Each class usually begins with warming-up exercises on the floor or at the barre, followed by intensive toning and strengthening exercises at the barre or centre, before finishing with stretching and relaxation exercises.

 

The Teacher

Elisa is the creator of Barre&Baby. Born and educated in Italy, Elisa has over 15 years of ballet and contemporary dance experience and over 5 years of antenatal and postnatal ballet teaching experience. She also trained as a baby-wearing peer supporter.

 

The Benefits

  • Correct body posture, strengthening and protecting the spine as the body adjusts to the increasing weight being carried, in the womb or in your arms after the baby arrives, reducing back strain.
  • Improved physical health, supporting you throughout pregnancy, preparing your body for a healthier labour and early motherhood.
  • More flexible body, needed to adjust to the constant changes happening inside you.

 

What to expect?

Each class usually begins with warming-up exercises on the floor or at the barre, followed by intensive toning and strengthening exercises at the barre or centre, before finishing with stretching and relaxation exercises.

 

What to bring?

Please wear whatever makes you feel comfortable! Anything that allows you to move easily is fine. Ballet shoes are welcome if you have them but bare feet work just as well.

If you’re coming to a Mum&Baby Ballet class, your baby should also be in comfortable, soft clothes that allow her to move and kick happily.

Bring a sling that offers a tummy-to-tummy or back-hold. (I don’t recommend cradle-hold or forward-facing slings for this class.) If you’re not sure which carrier is right for you and your baby, try visiting your nearest Sling Library. I have extra carriers I’m happy to lend, but please get in touch before the class to reserve one.
