This is an exercise, nutrition and lifestyle personal training programme for women who want to really address the strength and functionality of their core and pelvic floor.
We are looking to improve posture and the aesthetics of your body but most importantly strengthen your body so that it is functionally fit to handle everything you need it to do and more with ease.
Regardless of how long ago you had your children, or even if you have never had children, you may have noticed a weakening in your pelvic floor. It may be recent or you may have had it since giving birth and simply assumed that it’s something to put up with. You might be hesitant to laugh, sneeze, cough, run, move suddenly or jump. You may not have have any of these symptoms and simply decided to give your core and pelvic floor a little TLC to ensure that it is working optimally.
With the correct lifting, breathing and moving techniques we can manage, improve and strengthen your pelvic floor so that it works when you need it too.
We want to learn how to use your breath to protect your body and pelvic floor when you carry out everyday movements – lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, turning, reaching, squatting, lunging, getting up, getting down.
Before commencing with any kind of exercise programme you will have an initial consultation – Initially I will send you an online questionnaire to complete then during this first hour and a half we go over your questionnaire, we look at your breathing technique, posture and trigger points. Using simple exercises and verbal feedback we check that your pelvic floor and TVA is working in synergy with your breath.
We discuss what your movement, lifestyle or body goal is and work towards it. Depending on the information discovered during this consultation I will give you some stretches, muscle releases and initial strength/breath exercises to use to realign your body and to start strengthening your core. We work on strengthening pelvic floor as well as how to relax pelvic floor, which is just as important.
We will talk about nutrition and lifestyle and I will make recommendations that will help you restore your core and pelvic floor and re-balance hormones.
The information gathered in this initial consultation is used as a starting point for your personal core restore programme plan with each session building on the exercises until you are moving confidently, freely, comfortably and easily, feeling strong and full of energy.
Please note:- Cases of diastasis recti or pelvic floor dysfunction are managed carefully and depending on the severity it may involve working alongside a Woman’s Health Physiotherapist.
