Aqua Natal Classes

/ What Are Aqua Natal Classes?

Aqua Natal Classes are specially designed fitness programmes tailored to pregnant women. These classes take place in a pool, using the buoyancy and resistance of water to provide a low-impact yet highly effective workout. Aqua Natal Classes combine aerobics, strength training, and relaxation techniques to support expectant mothers’ physical and emotional well-being.

Aqua Natal Classes provide a holistic approach to prenatal fitness and well-being, promoting physical health, emotional balance, and social connections among expectant mothers. These classes offer a unique and enjoyable way to stay active during pregnancy, preparing women for the physical demands of childbirth and the challenges of motherhood.


/ The Benefits of Aqua Natal Classes

Low Impact Exercise

The buoyancy of water reduces the impact on joints and ligaments, making it a gentle and safe exercise for pregnant women, and beneficial for those who experience discomfort or pain when performing activities on land.

Strength and Muscle Tone

The resistance provided by water helps tone and strengthen muscles without putting excessive strain on the body, assisting pregnant women to maintain their strength and flexibility.

Cardio Vascular Fitness

Aqua Natal Classes can help improve cardiovascular fitness, enhancing endurance and stamina, especially during labour and delivery.

Reduced Swelling

Water immersion can help alleviate swelling in the legs and ankles, a common discomfort during pregnancy.

Stress Relief

Being in the water has a calming effect, reducing stress and promoting relaxation, benefiting expectant mothers dealing with pregnancy's emotional ups and downs.

Improved Posture

The buoyancy of water encourages better posture, which can help alleviate back and pelvic pain associated with pregnancy.

Social Connection

Aqua Natal Classes offer a supportive and friendly environment where pregnant women can connect with others going through a similar journey. Building a network of friends and sharing experiences can be invaluable during this time.

Preparation for Labour

Aqua Natal Classes often incorporate breathing and relaxation techniques practical during labour and delivery, helping women stay calm and focused.

Aqua Natal Classes are generally suitable for most pregnant women, but it’s essential to consult a healthcare provider before starting any exercise programme during pregnancy.
