Pelvic/Core Training

Whether you're a new mom or a grandmom, if you're dealing with pelvic floor or core issues, you need to fix how you move, how you load your pelvic floor and how you handle intra-abdominal pressure. That's where I come in.

What Happened During Pregnancy?

  • Your organs were squished and moved around

  • Your diaphragm (breathing muscle) was pushed way up and likely stopped working properly

  • Your ribs spread apart to make room for your baby (this effects diaphragm function)

  • Your abs had to stretch BIG TIME

  • Your pelvic floor had to handle tremendous amounts of pressure on it from a growing baby and stretching/tearing from delivery (even a c-section, the pelvic floor can still take a beating)

  • Your back muscles had to overcompensate and tighten to make up for the lack of abs and handle the extra front weight

  • Between pregnancy, nursing and holding kids, your great posture went out the window

What Can We Do About It?

  1. Start with breathing. Yes, breathing. We'll get the diaphragm working correctly to help move your organs back in place, get your abs firing correctly, and strengthen your pelvic floor.

  2. Get your core to work correctly, which will get your ribs to move back down. Your abdomen will return to its rightful size and tension will decrease in your low back muscles.

  3. Improve your posture to help everything come together.

Pelvic Floor

Leaking is common but it's not normal, no matter what you've heard. The pelvic floor is so much more than you think. As the foundation of your body, it creates strength and stability that you need to keep moving without thinking twice. Sneeze, laugh, cough, jump, and move worry free. Restore your body so that you can do what you want, when you want. No more missing out on your life.

Diastasis Recti

What is it? When the front abdominal muscle gaps or separates in the middle.

Why is it bad? When the gap is too big or squishy it prevents the core from effectively transferring load (something we do constantly throughout the day, especially if you have kids). This can result in back pain, hip instability and sub-optimal physical performance. You can have a strong core, but that doesn't mean it's working correctly.
