AquaBellies is a hydrotherapy class for expectant and
new mothers combining Pilates with cardio exercise in
the buoyancy of water.

Class sizes are limited and are conducted by a Qualified Pilates Instructor who is also a Registered Midwife. Our classes are held in a private pool at Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide with no other activities scheduled at the same time. The hour-long classes focus not only on pregnancy and preparation for birth, but also on postnatal recovery.
