Nikki Bergen

Prenatal Pilates

The Bump Method prenatal workout is a safe and effective program designed to support women in achieving a healthy and fit pregnancy. We combine Pilates, low-impact dance, restorative stretching and deep muscle activation. You will not do any gym-like “crunches”, but rather will learn to work your abdominal wall (transversus abdominis) from the inside out.  Workouts are tailored to reflect the unique needs of each trimester of pregnancy.

    What people are saying!

  • Nikki’s extensive knowledge and amazing teaching techniques has helped me get my body back! Having gone through a c-section and diastasis, I thought I would never be able to have my abdomen properly recover. Nikki’s core training helped me repair my muscles and not only give me tight and toned stomach, but a tight and toned body! Pilates has become a regular part of my workout regime.

  • As a new mom I had been finding it challenging to get back to working out, but then I started doing post-natal pilates with Nikki.  These classes give me the motivation I need!  It’s so great that the babies are incorporated in the class because it not only keeps them entertained, but the added weight of carrying them makes each exercise that much more difficult.  I am definitely noticing the benefits – I feel great, my back doesn’t hurt as much and I am returning to my pre-baby shape!
