Restore Your Core after Pregnancy & Birth
Do you feel like you haven't recovered your core strength since giving birth (even if it was years ago)? Do you get achy in your neck, shoulders or Lower back especially when caring for your kid(s)? Are you frustrated by the appearance and function of your post-partum belly but don't know how to train effectively? Have you been diagnosed with diastasis recti aka "mummy tummy"? Diastasis Recti is often a combination of poor breathing patterns, muscle imbalances, and postural tendencies. While pregnancy is a contributing factor to diastasis recti it can also be a symptom of a greater whole body imbalance. We offer a 1-day 90 min workshop as well as a 4-week 55 min session package to address these issues:
This 1.5 hr workshop teaches you how to restore your core and avoid the aches and pains associated with pregnancy and childbirth. We will assess for and measure diastasis recti (separation of the abs aka “mummy tummy”), teach you what exercises you should avoid/what can worsen a diastasis (crunches, situps and planks), and then give you alternative exercises to improve the tone, strength and appearance of your abdomen and core. Offered 2-3x/year.
Our next workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 12 at 6:00PM. Sign up here or contact us at (925) 222-5446 to book your spot over the phone.
Restore Your Core after Pregnancy class (4 week series):
A more in-depth and progressive class to learn how to strengthen and restore your core the right way!. You will learn exercises, tools and tips to restore your core, improve your posture as well as proper lifting mechanics. The class is limited to 4 participants to ensure personalized, individual attention. If you have a Diastasis, we will monitor the separation each week.
Over the course of the 4 week, one hour sessions, we will be concentrating on breathing, core and pelvic floor concepts through a progression of exercises where we will be monitoring and measuring the diastasis. We may use Pilates equipment, mat exercises, kettlebells and TRX depending on the needs of each participant. Each class builds on the next so we don't allow drop-ins and you must commit to all 4 classes-in our experience, consistency is the best way to achieve results.
