Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani – Professional Ballet Dancer
Dancing through Pregnancy
Professional ballet dancer Tara performs with London’s Royal Ballet at their historic home in Covent Garden and around the world. Ballet dancers follow intense training sessions that can last for up to 13 hours a day, six days a week. Tara scaled back as her pregnancy progressed and gave up rehearsing and performing during her third trimester but continued to stay active and danced throughout her pregnancy.
Tara’s motivation for training during pregnancy
Tara says, ‘I have always been an active person and dancing is my job. My body is used to it, I need to dance! I’d be lost if I wasn’t able to continue dancing, both physically AND mentally
What she wore
Tara wore a FittaMamma High Support teamed with FittaMamma Maternity fitness Capris. She also supported our Pregnant Not Powerless campaign, teaming her ‘Pregnant Not Powerless’ maternity exercise vest with her tutu.
How FittaMamma activewear worked for her
The outfit really flatters her body, supporting her baby bump, back and boobs whilst giving all the stretch and flexibility she needs as a professional dancer. Tara says: The last thing you want as your body and bump are growing is for clothes to feel too tight! The FittaMamma range accommodates for these prenatal changes and gives you all the support in all of the right places at the same time’.
A final word from Tara about enjoying an active pregnancy
She says ‘I would hate to feel powerless during my pregnancy. Growing a baby is an amazing thing but I don’t see it as a time to sit back and relax, it’s a time to celebrate and enjoy. A fit pregnancy is part of that joy.’
If she can do it, you can do it mamma!
