About the event

Healing After Birth: finding your core, we'll explore how having a baby changes your breathing, postural and movement patterns and how this is intricately connected with the pelvic floor. Discover the interplay between baby and your core and learn tips to save energy, avoid injury, and (re)build your strength.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is for postpartum moms who want to move and feel better and become more confident in their pelvic health.

What will you learn?

This workshop covers changes in your body from conception through postpartum (and beyond), including the:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor as it relates to movement and daily function
  • Impact of pregnancy and childbirth on your core, including issues such as diastasis recti and pelvic organ prolapse
  • Techniques to (re)connect with your core during sitting, standing and exercise
  • Ways to avoid injury, build strength and save energy during pregnancy and postpartum
  • Almighty kegel (pssst, it's actually not-so-mighty)
  • Answers to your questions about the body and pelvic floor during pregnancy, birth and postpartum

What should you bring?

Wear comfortable clothes you can move in and bring a yoga mat (if you have one). Please consider having little ones stay at home, if possible. This way you can fully engage in the workshop and get the most benefit from the valuable information and activities we have planned. Give yourself the gift of undivided attention.
