Unhealed abdominal separation is one of the most common issues post birth, due to improper care and poor exercise advice. We teach you now to assess it correctly, walking you through step by step to close and/or firm the area, and reinforce the structures to ensure it stays that way.
The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a key component of regaining proper pelvic control. If you had pelvic girdle pain during pregnancy, or have hip or lower back pain now, chances are this area needs movement that will stabilise it.
The deep inner core muscles are key in preventing back pain, and protecting the spine during lifting. We teach you which muscles to work, in which order, to ensure that your spine is linked correctly with your abdominals and pelvic muscles.
Weakness and also hypertonicity (too much tension) can both create similar symptoms, like leakage, pain during sex, urgency to go the toilet and a heavy sensation. Our self assessments show you how to determine where you're at and what to do about it.
Postural changes from both pregnancy and carrying a baby (or child!) can lead to alterations in our spine, causing pain when we lift things or exercise.
2 out of 3 women experience leakage at some point post birth. Whether it's frequent, or a little "LBL", women need to know that they don't have to put up with it. The right exercise has been proven to completely eliminate leakage. And here's a secret - it has nothing to do with clenching everything 20 times a day.
Formulated in conjunction with orthopaedic experts, this is the only method out there that teaches women how to integrate their pelvic floor and deep core muscles into running technique.
Women who have had bladder leakage or back pain while running for years finish this part of the program able to run pain and leak free.Get started today
We're not a weight loss program. We teach women how to train, how to connect to their deep core muscles, getting stable, then strong.
BUT... when you deal with abdominal, back and glute muscles that aren't working properly - in the way this method does - you automatically increase muscle tone.
You heal what is commonly referred to as 'jelly belly' and that 'mum bum', because these problems have orthopaedic causes.
Changing how you look isn't the goal of this program, but it is a side effect of connecting to your body, and strengthening from the deepest layer out.View the Melbourne Course schedule
Scar tissue and other surgical implications from having a caesarian birth mean that different exercises are needed for a full and complete recovery of your abdominals.
These issues can hang around long past pregnancy, and have been shown to be greatly alleviated by strengthening and linking the hands back into the shoulder and neck via the deep abdominal muscles.
Our method is designed to systematically layer, so that each session you make progress, without draining your system. A body that is pushed too hard doesn't heal. We teach you how to find your own 'sweet spot' so that you are challenged, but not exhausted.
Passive structures like ligaments and tendons loosen off around all of the joints during pregnancy. This can cause issues years later particularly back pain and hip alignment. Each woman has their own unique joint laxity (looseness) profile, which we assess and teach you which exercises are best for you.
Exercising with any grade of prolapse needs to be individualised and constructed with care. There are exercises that can improve symptoms dramatically, and others that do more damage. We show you the difference and sequentially progress you through core and pelvic floor recovery.
A lot of women complain of sore feet directly after birth. This can be exacerbated by an unstable pelvis and the little know fact that the feet connect to the pelvic floor via a connective tissue network, which can contribute to knee pain.
All you need is 15 minutes a day and your lounge room floor. Each session unlocks weekly, complete with technique tutorials, self assessments, and personal coaching inside the program. You'll see yourself making progress every single week, and if you aren't, we're right there to help you out.
