  • Get back in touch with your body

    It may be months, years or even decades since you had babies, or it may be that you never had kids, but hormonal changes have changed things. 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 people end up feeling disconnected and weak.

    Practical & achievable

    make simple changes to everyday tasks

    There are changes you can make that will improve your core and pelvic floor health without hitting the gym or doing a million kegels.

     

    As a bonus, they're likely to ease anything that may be going on with back or knee pain too.

    Improve your posture

    move well

    Better alignment and more of the right kinds of movement can benefit more than your pelvic floor.

     

    Posture isn't just about how we stand, moving well and feeling good impact on our whole lives.

    Be mindful in your body

    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.

     

    Find out how your posture affects your pelvic floor and more.

    Enjoy life

    Drop some stress.

    Constant discomfort and feeling like you can't keep up with your kids is not something you need to live with.

     

    Improving your postural alignment will help you to feel stronger.

    Your core doesn’t exist on it’s own! We will take an holistic approach, looking at strengthening your core strength, optimising your pelvic floor muscles, taking care of your back as well as upper body, legs and mind.

    Feel more coordinated and confident

    Small changes = big differences

    These friendly small group sessions offer personal attention and a science-based approach. You'll get individual attention and support.

    Open to all - not just mums.

  • 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 emails taster video to get a sense of what we'll be doing on the course.

    It's years since I had kids. Is this for me?

    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. All ages and sages are welcome to join.

    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.
