Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani – Professional Ballet Dancer
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 training 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 FittaMamma maternity activewear she wore
Tara wore one of our supportive FittaMamma tops 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 our maternity activewear worked for Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani
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.’
