Whether you’re pregnant, recently gave birth, or have had a baby in the last decade, maintaining and regaining core strength can be a challenge. Functional core recovery is not about having six-pack abs, but being able to move with ease and properly support the spine and internal organs.
In this 7-week virtual course you will learn key movements that will strengthen your core from the inside out, leading to a stronger, more stable middle. We’ll discuss Diastasis recti (abdominal separation), pelvic floor issues, and how the muscles and connective tissue can be healed. You will also learn which movements to avoid and how to modify a yoga practice to help heal your core.
The aim of our Virtual Courses is to empower you to learn new methods of self-care during this unusual time and provide opportunities for community connection. We have designed these courses to prioritize both interaction and building new habits. The online format includes both interactive live-stream classes (where you can ask questions and hear from fellow students), as well as a variety of practice videos to do at your own pace and incorporate into your life. The best part? You will have access to all the practice videos (including recordings of the live-stream classes) for one year after your course ends, so you can continue to practice at home.
A computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet connection is required to participate, and a smartphone or webcam and microphone are recommended in order to interact with the teacher during live-streams. The online platform is very user-friendly, and we will provide you with instructions for getting started.
