Three Ways Pilates Benefited Me As A New Mom

Pilates has been a literal lifeline for me in many situations I’ve navigated in life and the same was true when I became a mom.

The upper body work helps you cope better with the stress and strain of feeding. The standing work helps strengthen your hips and glutes so that you can hold your baby. So many benefits!

Pilates Will Help You Be More Present

Pilates Will Help You Be More Present

We tend to live our daily lives with little awareness of what our bodies are doing. We often find ourselves breathless and feeling “scatter brained” because we’re trying to take too much in at once as well as process too much information at once. The constant bombardment of distractions and “noise” makes us lose focus and connection to our outside world, but most importantly to our inner being. When we lose those connections, it becomes a free for all. We often feel out of control, exhausted, and have trouble concentrating. A consistent and meaningful Pilates practice is way of returning home, going inward – reconnecting who we are on the inside, our inner strength and vitality. By experiencing joyful movement from a connected place regularly, we start to find the ability to reconnect with the world around us again from a place of more awareness and patience.

Pilates And Weight Loss

Pilates And Weight Loss

If your goal is to lose weight, Pilates can support you in ways that may seem quite unexpected. For example, as we focus on connecting with our breath and sharpening our ability to concentrate, we learn to slow down and perceive what is happening in our bodies. When those principles are applied to the dinner table, you will notice yourself feeling more capable of slowing down and reflecting consciously on the choices you are making in terms of your nutrition. The same benefits also help us manage our anxiety and stress better which means that we can better regulate the amount of stress hormones being released into our bloodstream at any given time which have been found to be connected to weight gain issues in many cases. A consistent Pilates practice will also help you tone areas of your body that you perhaps want to address.
