Classes & Groups Being Offered For Expecting Mothers

Becoming a parent can be exciting, challenging and a little overwhelming.

With overstuffed couches, no scary movies, and endless helpful information, our prenatal classes will give you the knowledge, tools and confidence you need to easily prepare for the birth of your sweet little bundle of joy.

A note for all of our moms (and their partners): Just in case your little one may surprise you with an early arrival… please plan to complete your class(es) before your 34th week of pregnancy!


Baby at the Barre

Description:

Workout with your Baby at the Barre! Pure Barre is a workout that utilizes small movements for a big change, both physically and mentally. You will work each muscle group to fatigue, then stretch to create long, lean muscle (like a dancer!). This is a 45 minute class, and targets the areas that women struggle with the most. Transform your body and your mind in record time. Visit http://purebarre.com/ltb/all-about-the-barre/ to learn more about the incredible technique and what to expect!

The class offered at Nini Bambini will be focused on the same movements as a class in a Pure Barre studio, but no barre will be needed! Between wearing your baby, exercises in the center of the room, and the use of the wall or a chair for balance, you will get the same amazing workout as you would at the studio! We will transition from wearing your baby, to having them on a mat nearby.

Please be sure you are cleared for exercise from your Doctor. Please bring a carrier or wrap for your little, and lots of water! Ages of children welcomed are 6 weeks to toddler.

This is a 4-week seminar that requires registration. Class size is limited. When referencing your membership benefits, this is a premium class.

Hoping to drop-in to the current seminar? Please visit our calendar view to see if there is space! You may sign up for the remaining classes or drop-in to a single class by registering for each individual date of interest using the links from the calendar view. If you wish to drop-in to the first class of a seminar only, please email info@ninibambini.com.
