Pilates-based exercises are used throughout this book because I feel they provide the most benefit for pregnant women. But… Pilates is much more than just a series of exercises. It is a lifestyle and philosophy that incorporates more than just a mind/body experience. It becomes a way of life for most Pilates instructors. We teach Pilates from the heart and soul, truly believing in its power to change lives. By teaching this course, I hope to plant a seed in all teachers and leave it with them to blossom through their own experiences. Pilates instructors have the ability to change not only bodies, but beliefs as well. Whether a woman chooses to do Pilates, Yoga, run or swim, being healthy physically is conducive for a better birth as well as post-partum recovery. By writing this book for the pregnant woman, I hope to impart the limitless possibilities, not just for exercise during pregnancy, but also for healthier ways of giving birth.
