Postnatal Recovery

Postnatal Recovery – Abdominal Separation

This 2 hour postnatal recovery workshop on how to restore strength and movement to your body after birth.

Do you notice

  • ‘Doming’ of your stomach, especially when coming up from a lying position on your back?
  • Low back pain?
  • Sometimes you still look like a few months pregnant?

This separation can lead to a lack of core strength and pelvic stability and, when left unresolved, can contribute to low back or sacroiliac joint pain, pelvic pain, or pelvic floor dysfunction. Diastasis Recti affects the whole body both aesthetically and functionally.

Whether this is your first or fifth baby, or even 20years postnatal this workshop will:

Reconnect you to your body especially the back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles
Open and release tension in your shoulders, chest and neck
Learn to use thoracic breath work to calm the nervous system and avoid a plunging effect on the pelvic floor
Introduction to working with
Diastasis Recti (split abdominals), back/pelvic pain, neck pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, weak pelvic floor (stress incontinence), fatigue and anxiety.

The workshop will conclude with a lovely guided relaxation to promote deep rest and relaxation followed by tea and cake.

Cost – £37

Wellness Walk

Saturday 28th March 14:00 -17:00

Join me for a 3 hour Nordic Walk at Hill of Tarvit.

Do you…

  • Hurt a lot when walking?
  • Have sore knees?
  • Sore hips?
  • Low back pain?

On this wellness walk workshop you will learn the basics of Nordic Walking technique and how to improve your gait. Nordic walking enables you to build bone mass, burn 46% more calories than ordinary walking, work 95% of your muscles and improve mental health.

I provide the poles so there is no need for you to go out and purchase some. All you need to do is turn up in flexible soled walking shoes or trainers rather than hiking boots. Please come in comfortable clothes, bring a waterproof jacket in case of showers. Layering your clothing is a good idea as you will be able to take off or add the layers as needed as we enjoy the undulating terrain of Hill of Tarvit.

Cost: £25
