You’re travelling in Marseille and you’re pregnant ? Your destination is well chosen! To get some sunshine and breath the sea air is really good for your baby. With many activities for mums to be, Marseille is an ideal spot to both relax and get ready.
Aquagym (prenatal water aerobics)
Aquagym, as we call it in French, is ideal for you and your baby during pregnancy. While exercising in water, you will learn to master your breath and relax. Remember water is the first element we were all in contact with…
Aquagym can be started from the beginning to the end of the pregnancy as the exercises are specially tailored for pregnant women and won’t start labour. But remember in Marseille you can make your own course in the Méditérannée, there is nothing better than sea water!
Aquagym courses in Marseille :
Centre Santé Forme – 163 rue Saint-Pierre (5ème)
Centre Agane Fitness – 9 traverse du Four Neuf (9ème)
Again, this is a good way to learn how to master your breath, a key during labour. It’s important to exercise and stay fit when you’re pregnant as labour is quite physical. But it’s as much important to listen to your body and your feelings. Antenatal yoga is tailored for pregnant women and help you to balance your body and spirit. Yoga is also very helpful when you need to stay calm…
