Why Rethinking the Core and Pelvic Floor

For years we’ve been spot treating the core with targeted core and pelvic floor exercises and separating the body into parts.  We can’t spot treat when everything in our bodies is connected to everything else. How we move through our day,  and our movement habits and preferences can all play a part in how our core and pelvic floor functions. We need to look at the bigger picture and bust a few core myths in the process.

I’ve been training postnatal yoga teachers how to teach yoga to ladies experiencing core and pelvic floor issues for many years and I’m super excited to be expanding my offerings with this full day immersion workshop welcoming health care professionals and movement teachers from many different modalities.

About Rethinking the Core & Pelvic Floor

In this workshop we’ll be looking at common pathologies such as diastasis recti, prolapse and incontinence and explore movements that are supportive for anyone experiencing these issues.

We’ll be integrating a range of movement-based practices to help clients/students improve their core strength and function.

By the end of the day you will…..

Have a clear understanding of common core pathologies and how to support clients who have them

Be able to recognise common core engagement cheats

Have a range of tools for teaching your students deep core engagement, not just abdominal engagement

Have an understanding of the anatomy of the core and pelvis from a bio-tensegrity and myofascial perspective

Know how breathing can help or hinder core health

Have  tools to help your students re-pattern their breath to support core function

Know what signs to look out for if you have clients/students who may have a hypertonic pelvic floor and understand why isolated pelvic floor exercises may be doing more harm than good.

Know how to incorporate full body exercises into practice to build core strength, integrity and function

Safely and confidently modify a movement class for client who have core or pelvic floor issues

Understand how analising clients/posture and gait can help inform the way you might work with a client or student to improve core function.

About Your Tutor

I’m yoga teacher and a certified RYC™ teacher and is was my experience of having diastasis recti after both of my pregnancies that lead me into this work. It became clear to me that a classical yoga practice wasn’t enough to help me recover so I stepped out of the yoga world to learn more.

I took courses with well-respected leaders in the field such as women’s health physios Dianne Lee and I tried many core recovery programs. I finally discovered the Restore Your Core program and it not only took my recovery to the next level, but empowered me with knowledge of how to move in a way that would be supportive to my body for the rest of my life.  I am passionate about spreading this work to as many ladies as I can.

I’d love to hear from you if you have any questions regarding my classes and workshops. Simply fill out the form and I’ll be in touch as soon as possible.
