Guinness World Record • The Most Viewers of a Prenatal Pilates Class
March 8, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On International Women’s Day (8th March) at 7pm, Expert Pilates Instructor Hollie Grant will be teaching a FREE 40-minute Prenatal Pilates class and going for the Guinness World Record for the ‘Most viewers of a prenatal Pilates lesson live streamed on YouTube’ (1500 views)! Come and make history with other pregnant women!
The Active Pregnancy Foundation’s mission is to support women to stay active throughout pregnancy and beyond, by providing expertise and advice; changing culture; and challenging policy, traditional barriers and social stigmas. For every person that joins the record attempt, The Bump Plan will donate £1 to The Active Pregnancy Foundation. If they hit the record, they will top up the donation to £2,000.
The theme for this year’s IWD is #BreakTheBias. Imagine a world where active pregnancies were celebrated, free of misinformation or fearmongering. Together, it’s possible to help change the narrative around active pregnancies and celebrate what women CAN do during pregnancy, rather than repeating what they can’t.
‘Pregnant women are fragile’, ‘Exercise during pregnancy is dangerous’, ‘Running whilst pregnant is selfish’…
We come across bias against pregnant women all the time. Both The Bump Plan and The Active Pregnancy Foundation are dedicated to shaking up these outdated views by raising awareness of evidence-based information about pre- and postnatal physical activity and wellbeing through their platforms.
