Postnatal Pilates

The Bump Method Postnatal workout fuses Pilates, pelvic physiotherapy, yoga and sweat-inducing dance conditioning. New moms will reclaim their bodies, learning to flatten their abdominal wall after pregnancy, fix diastasis recti (overstretched abdominals) and restore their deep core and pelvic floor. We’ll also address postural issues created by pregnancy and rebalance muscle groups that have become too tight and too weak. The Bump Method is a proven safe and effective postnatal fitness program because it targets the most important, yet most overlooked issues.

    What people are saying!

  • Having taken pilates classes and privates for 12 years in both New York and Toronto I am able to confidently declare that Nikki is an absolutely outstanding pilates teacher and trainer – in fact the very best!  I credit Nikki for getting and safely keeping me in great shape before, during and after my third pregnancy. I can happily recommend her knowing that anyone who works out with her will obtain the results they are hoping for (not least because Nikki herself is a fabulous walking advert for her abilities!!!)

  • Exercising with Nikki is always a rewarding challenge. She is a motivating and effective instructor. Under Nikki’s guidance I did pilates throughout my last pregnancy and, compared to three previous pregnancies, my postpartum recovery was much faster. Regaining my core strength and tone has not been nearly as difficult this time around. Nikki is an intuitive teacher with a sound knowledge of the body and how to make an exercise maximally effective.
