Workshops designed to help women bridge the gap from rehab to fitness. If you have concerns about low back pain, SI joint pain, hips, knees…well anywhere, then these workshops are for you! The focus is on ensuring you have the right movement strategy that works for your body, and your activity. $50 per workshop participant, Maximum 6 participants in each class.
Workshop 1: Connect the Breath, the Core and the Pelvic Floor. October 30, 7-8pm.
Learn how to make the muscles of your core work as a team to create a stable base from which to move. Too often we “brace” with our abs, or hold our breath, or even breath shallow. These strategies can lead to back pain, incontinence and even prolapse. Learning how to connect these muscles so they work together will get you ready to be ACTIV!
Workshop 2: Integrated Movement Strategies. November 13, 7-8pm
In this workshop, we will put together the basics of connecting the breath, the core and the pelvic floor and adding functional movement patterns. The goal is to integrate core strategies into real movement to avoid stress and strain. Too often we engage in activities with a high demand but use suboptimal muscle strategies. For women, this can be detrimental to the pelvic floor muscles. Learning optimal core strategies that match the demand of the activity can help keep you ACTIV!
Workshop 3: Learning to Let Go. December 4, 7-8 pm
As important as it is to exercise and stay ACTIV it, is equally important to devote time to relaxation. This workshop is aimed at helping you achieve true relaxation. If you struggle from poor sleep, anxiety, or having difficulty “turning off” your mind (especially at night), then this workshop is for you.
ACTIV MOMS! Ready to Return. October 25, 10:30-11:30 am.

We will discuss postural changes related to pregnancy, how to support your pelvic floor in activity and what to do about diastasis recti. This is a great introduction to post-natal fitness to ensure you return safely. Babies welcome to attend.
