Stretch and Release

Stretch and Release – To mobilise the body from head to toe, targeting areas tensioned by pregnancy and in your new role as a mum. For flexibility, mobility and improved posture.

Activation

Activation – The essentials to find and recruit our deep core and pelvic floor. We build tension and strength from the inside out, re-setting our foundations.

Pelvic Ring Closure

Pelvic Ring Closure – We challenge your pelvic stability and strength to prevent or relieve pain and dysfunction of the core and pelvic floor. Once we have re-set our foundations with "Activation" we move onto these bigger muscles.

Core Abdominals

Core Abdominals – A progression of our strength training, shortening and tightening of the abdominal muscles which have been challenged during pregnancy. This is a more advanced video, to move onto once you have re-built tension and created tummy closure.
