Join me, Irene Donahue, for an educational and movement based course that will put you on the path to healing your postnatal core, safely and progressively return to more intense exercise and prepare you for the athleticism of motherhood. Feel stronger, more connected to your core and confident - no matter how long ago you gave birth.
Transform your posture, breathing mechanics, and movement habits to promote healing and improve your function and performance; whether it's running after your kids, at the gym or during your favorite athletic pursuits and movement practice.
Learn how to minimize your risks of developing pelvic floor/core dysfunction and help heal and/or manage incontinence (those annoying leaks), diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse and other common types of core/pelvic floor dysfunction post childbirth based on the latest research*.
This 8 week course will meet for 8 consecutive weeks. This is a progressive fitness class that will build on each week's workout. Each class will include elements of resistance training, functional training, yoga, Pilates and dance as well as restorative exercise techniques, breath work, release work and self-massage.
You will receive weekly session notes and a home program you can follow with exercise videos and tutorials. A carry bag with self-myofascial release balls, resistance bands and a pilates ball are included. Ongoing Email and text support will be available.
This class is appropriate for new moms cleared for exercise by their health care providers and beyond. Pre-crawling babies welcome. Limited to 8 participants per class. Pre-registration required. *It is advised that all women have an assessment with a Women’s Health Pelvic Therapist to fully evaluate the function of your core and pelvic floor.
