Water Walking for Pregnant People – August 16, 2024

August 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


A six-week class offered on Fridays, starting July 12 and ending August 16, 2024, 6-7 pm. This class is free and available for pregnant B(lack) I(ndigenous) and P(eople) O(f) C(olor).

The BEE COLLECTIVE is excited to announce our second annual Water Walking Class series this summer, in partnership with the Gullah Swim Academy. This class is designed to provide physical and mental benefits specifically for pregnant and postpartum BIPOC women. We have identified Fridays from 6:00-7:00 PM at MLK Pool as the best date and time. Classes will begin on Friday July 12. This is a six week series that is grant funded.

Water walking aerobics offers numerous benefits for pregnant and postpartum women, including:

  • Physical Benefits: The buoyancy of water supports the body, reducing stress on joints and the spine, which is especially beneficial during pregnancy. It helps improve circulation, reduce swelling, and maintain muscle tone without the risk of overheating.
  • Mental Benefits: Engaging in water-based exercise can help reduce anxiety and stress, promote relaxation, and improve overall mood, which is essential for mental health during and after pregnancy.
