With the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) now recommending exercise during pregnancy, more and more pre- and postnatal women are choosing Pilates as their program of choice. Presented by Cecile LeMoine Bankston, mother of four, including twins, this DVD is full of useful information on working with both pre- and postnatal women. This informative DVD will give you the medical guidelines, and information on common problems associated with this population such as low-back pain, sciatica, sacroilliac dysfunction and diastasis recti. Learn how to keep your prenatal clients fit all the way through pregnancy in a safe and effective manner, and learn how to get the postnatal women back to looking fabulous in no time.

This is a live recorded session from the 2008 IDEA World Fitness Convention™.

NOTE: This session was titled Pre- and Postnatal Pilates


I have done more reformer than mat training, so it was good to experience some different things, especially the magic circle...loved that.

Very well prepared and informative!!
