Special Needs

Do you recommend Pilates for pregnancy?

If you are pregnant and already attend Collective Classes, you are welcome to continue, but require that you take a minimum of one Private Class to learn the modifications and building blocks specific to pregnancy. Our teachers fully understand this physical condition and will help you to participate in Collective Classes in a manner that is good for you and your baby’s health and well-being.

We do not accept newcomers to Pilates Collective Classes who are over 4 months pregnant. Why? Because your body is going through so many changes already, it is not advisable to join a Collective Class. However, if you would like to take  Private Classes, we will be happy to accept you.

Please contact our reception desk at +32 (0)2 513 07 66 before making an appointment.

After pregnancy?

Post-pregnancy is a great time to pick up your Pilates classes again to strengthen your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. If you have had a natural birth you can start after 8 weeks. If you have had a cesarean section, we advise you to wait 2-3 months or until your doctor has approved you for exercise.
