Amanda I'm so glad to hear that this workshop was helpful and informative for you (I also apologize for my delayed response). I currently hold an online course called Prenatal Pilates Doula, which is an in-depth training for Pilates teacher in understanding the prenatal body and how to create an awesome Pilates program for prenatal women.

Bre Corbin Thank you for your kind words, I am so so so happy to hear that this workshop has helped to calm your nerves and boost your confidence in working with pregnant women.
I love that you also mention modifications. Today on Instagram LIVE I did a class about creating awesome modifications. I share my first step in creating modifications and then show two examples and pertain to prenatal Pilates. You should check it out at @livelifepilates.
I am also so happy to hear that you are interested in continuing prenatal Pilates education. I have a full online course called Prenatal Pilates Doula that actually begins this weekend. If you are interested in learning more, please head over to my website for all the awesome details: https://www.livelifepilates.com/prenatal-pilates-doula-course
Great workshop! I just wanted to add for others doing the workshop and teaching post natal women that progesterone and relaxin are still present in the body as a women is breastfeeding. So things will stay stretched and loose for that period of time.
fab workshop. How do we know when a woman wt diastasis is ready for loading abs? is there something I should look for? Also, some of these exercises would not be suitable for a client of mine (prenatal) wt pelvic pain, how do I modify cross legged for example? Thank you in advance
Hello Leah, first of all I want to say I really enjoyed this workshop which I just took recently. It answered a lot of questions and reduced my uncertainty of working with pre and post natal woman. I do have an immediate question, Ive been approached by a woman who had her baby only 2 weeks ago and is keen to start getting back into shape. Its her 2nd child, easy delivery. Is that too soon or can we start with a gentle modified workout? I look forward to your response . Thank you
