This morning a 4 1/2 month pregnant woman came to my Beach Pilates class with her husband, and I had to unfortunately turn her away. While Pilates can be great for pregnant women, and I have personally taught women up until the day they went into labor, the mat is not as most exercises involve lying on your back using the abs or lying on your stomach, neither of which is a good idea after the first trimester.
Many people have asked me about Reiki and whether Reiki is safe for pregnant women, and that I answer with an emphatic "Yes!". Reiki will help both mother and child to relax, stay healthy, and be in less discomfort. It is good for all involved!
