A whole-body approach to a happier pelvis & pelvic floor.
    A different approach to pelvic floor health that's about more than just squeezes. Often issues with pelvic floor can linger for years after pregnancy or come up later in life.
    Many people find that the general squeezing exercises don't work for them.

    This session is for you if that sounds familiar.


    We'll look at how the pelvic floor works, how it's affected by your movements throughout the day and what you can do to work with your pelvic floor.


    Expect tips for daily life, insight into how your body works and how you move plus some foundation exercises to help you gain both strength and flexibility in your pelvis.


    If you're someone who sits a lot, has had a baby or is pregnant or are peri or menopausal this workshop can help you.

  • IMPROVE YOUR BODY AWARENESS, core strength and pelvic floor muscles


    Would you like to build more strength and connection in your body?

    Maybe you feel weak in your core or lower back?

    Is your pelvic floor health impacting on your enjoyment of life?





    If you've been doing you kegels but they aren't making any difference then it's time to try something different. Learn more about your body, how to improve movement habits and posture with this biomechanics based course. Small group classes with an experienced teacher.


  • Get back in touch with your body

    So many of us have desk-based jobs and little time to move. Add the pressure that birthing may have put on our bodies and the rush back to normal life, and many mums get left feeling disconnected and weak.

    bring more awareness to your self

    It sounds counter intuitive, but sometimes muscles need to relax and lengthen in order to be stronger, rather than held tight.

  • Who's this for?

    This course can help you ease lower back pain, reconnect with your core muscles, minimise menstrual pain and find a fitter pelvic floor.


    It might be that you had a baby recently, or that it's been years since they were born. You may not have had children but want to find more comfort and strength in your body. Modern life has many strains that can negatively impact on our core and pelvic floor muscles.


    But there are things you can do to improve your pelvic floor and core strength that will help you live more freely.

  • FAQs

    Answers to some of the questions coming up...

    Do you do tasters or drop-ins?

    Commitment helps

    I don't do drop-ins or taster classes. Over the years I've noticed that the people who get most out of courses are the ones who commit to joining and taking part. This isn't a quick-fix approach, some people start to feel changes quickly, but you'll get the real benefits of whole body alignment over time as you develop good habits.


    If you'd like to get a feel for this style of teaching you can sign up for a free series of emails and videos to get a sense of what we'll be doing on the course.

    It's been a long time...

    Will the course suit me?

    Yes. It's fine to join us if you had your kids years ago, or even if you are having back / core or pelvic issues for other reasons.

    Why is it a long course?

    Movement for change

    This course has quite a different approach to most pelvic floor or fitness classes, where we look at lifestyle, habits and whole body alignment. It's a course because it takes time to change habits and we make progress through repetition and gradually building on the movements.

    I'm pregnant/recently postnatal

    Will the course suit me?

    The course is totally fine to join if you're pregnant.

    If you're recently postnatal you're welcome to join too, as long as you've got the go-ahead safety-wise from your GP.
