Weekly Postnatal Pilates
Using Pilates principles with mat and ball based exercises, this class will help restore the pelvic floor and any abdominal separation that may have occurred during pregnancy or birth. It will also help you regain or develop strength, endurance, and stability. This class is a great way to get back into a fitness routine and is recommended for six weeks or more postpartum. Additionally, it is recommended to consult your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.
Please bring your own yoga mat.
In some ways, you could say that Pilates found Kim. In 2003, after years of chronic lower back pain, Kim found herself on a journey to seek healing. After a week of practicing Pilates, she found instant relief. Not only did her pain subside, but she found that Pilates was an integral part of gaining mental clarity during two pregnancies and a busy schedule.
In 2006, Kim started to regularly attend sessions at Pilates on 10th and found a community where fine-tuned training and challenging workouts were supported by the instructors. Fast-forward to 2015, Kim decided that she wanted Pilates to take a bigger role in her life, and she became certified in the practice by training with Amie Baca.
Today, Kim is the owner of Pilates on 10th. She is a certified Level 1 instructor in Peak Pilates® and is continuing her education through various workshops. In all the classes she leads, she is enthusiastic in her belief that everyone can experience the deep benefits of Pilates, just as she did. These workshops and continuing education classes include: Pilates Chair and Barrel with Jessica Sultz, Master Peak Instructor, Prenatal Pilates with Master Instructor Leah Stewart of Livelife Pilates Academy, The Franklin Method workshop with Eric Franklin, continuing education courses with Power Pilates, New York, NY, and for two years she has traveled to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to Contrologia Conference to work with some of the biggest names in the Pilates industry. Kim plans to continue to take intermediate and advanced courses in the classical method, until she has reached the title of master instructor.
