Thank you for your response, Maria, but unfortunately I still can't access the workshop. I have the Pilates Anytime app on my iPad. Is there another way to get in? There is no orange tab under the title on my iPad 2. I appreciate your help.xx

Thank you Leah for a very informative workshop! I have applied your advice and insights very successfully with my clients. I need to ask you something that wasn't mentioned in the workshop. One of my clients was advised by her doctor to stop exercising in her 5th month because the baby apparently turned upside down, with face looking down and back turned upwards. What do you think? Should my client stop exercising? Or should we just eliminate all ab work and just focus on other body parts (legs, arms)? I know I could never persuade a pregnant woman against something that her doctor advises. But I do feel that I need to have my standpoint as a Pilates instructor. Thank you in advance, Eleni
Eleni - I am very happy to hear that the workshop has helped you better understand how to use Pilates particularly the abdominal work for your pre-natal clients. I absolutely understand where you are coming from, you do not want to advise your client against her doctor's advise, but you also care about her and want her to keep moving and feeling good and strong during her pregnancy. The only thoughts I have are that you should most definitely get in touch with her doctor, speak to her/him about the specifics of your client's situation, and explain to him exactly what pre-natal Pilates entails.
Many times doctors do not know what we do as Pilates teachers nor how we adapt the work to be safe, gentle and effective for pregnant women, it is always a great idea to talk with them and inform them. Hopefully, you can either meet with her doctor or speak to her/him on the phone, then together you can make a decision if it is in fact, safe for her to continue her Pilates practice. And you never know, the baby may shift positions yet again. Please let me know how it goes
