Bellycise is introducing a class especially for new mums and pregnant mums in their 2nd and 3rd trimester. The class will use gentle belly dance moves for toning and strengthening the abdominals, back, pelvis and thighs. The class will also introduce some yoga stretches and some soothing qi gong movements to calm the mind.
The classes can be booked by groups and organisations, for a cost of £60 per 45 minute session within the Diss to Stowmarket area.
