Pregnancy is a beautiful and challenging experience that women and their partners go through together. At The Pilates Klinik, we offer pregnancy Pilates classes for women near Joondalup and the northern Perth area. Utilising reformer Pilates techniques, these specialist classes can improve the entire pregnancy experience.
Prenatal & Post Natal Pilates with Reformers
“Reformer Pilates is widely considered the best form of pre and post-natal exercise. It will prepare your entire body and mind for the birth and aid in a quicker recovery…”
Our pregnancy Pilates classes utilise specialist reformer machines to offer a complete and dynamic Pilates experience, helping expecting mothers to keep fit while pregnant without straining their bodies. They also help mums with newborns get back into shape by strengthening and toning their bodies.
Our Pilates routines are custom designed for pre and post-natal mothers, ensuring you get the most out of the experience, whatever stage you’re at.

Benefits of Pregnancy Pilates at The Pilates Klinik
Set in a large, ambient space to heighten the experience, the benefits our pregnancy classes include:
- minimising the separation of the rectus abdominals, leading to quicker and easier reconnection after the birth
- improved pelvic floor strength and functioning
- upper body conditioning and muscle balancing for feeding preparation and neck care
- breathing techniques for relaxation, hormone and labour pain management, as well as expansion of the diaphragm to allow your baby to move freely
- attracting your blood supply to the core, providing your baby with the most effective nutrient supply for growth and development
- controlled flexibility exercises within safe intensity levels
- postural maintenance
The Pilates Klinik is one of the only studios that also offer an onsite supervised crèche to look after any young children while you attend your session.
