Love Your Core and Pelvic Floor
With Rebecca Haroutunian
Date: Saturday 2nd June 2018, 2:30pm – 4:30pm
Is 2018 the year that you decide to restore your core and pelvic floor? This workshop will teach you how to strengthen your pelvic floor and core, so that for years to come you’ll have a solid, strong and dependable core which won’t let you down when you jump, laugh or sneeze! It’s never too late to improve your core strength, restore your pelvic floor and flatten your tummy whether your babies are six weeks or 16 years old.
Pelvic floor issues are on the increase due to our lifestyle. Poor posture, sitting too often, and being less active all have an impact on our muscles, including the pelvic floor. More than 80% of women (and 10% of men) have problems at some point in their life. And 30% of postnatal women suffer with some form of stress incontinence for up to three months after birth and 66% of women with pelvic floor dysfunction also have abdominal separation.
During this interactive workshop you will learn how to effectively restore the optimal functioning of your core and pelvic floor no matter your age or condition. You will understand what your pelvic floor looks like, what it does, and how it works. You will learn how it integrates with the whole body, how posture and breathing play a major role, and why we need a strong (but not too strong) pelvic floor.
There will be practical exercises so that you can put all your new-found knowledge into action and go away knowing where your pelvic floor is and how to engage it.
What to wear
Loose comfortable clothing is preferable.
What to bring
All equipment is provided. Please just bring some water to drink.
Who can attend?
It is suitable if you are pregnant and have had your 12-week scan. If you have had your baby you should be at least six weeks postnatal (8-10 weeks post caesarean birth) with no infection or bleeding. You will benefit at any stage after birth, even if you had your babies years ago. Or you are someone who is just interested in their body and improving its function. Or you love running and other high impact sports and want to look after your body.
This will be a fun and informative afternoon.
What are my parking options?
There is free onstreet parking.
