Pelvic Floor Tone & Restore 

Saturdays // 8:15-9:15am

Although this class is labeled as being for the pelvic floor, we work on the entire lower body–stretching, strengthening, toning, and restoring alignment. This class is perfect for anyone dealing with hip/knee/back/foot pain, incontinence (aka sneeze pee), pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, swelling, or pregnancy related aches and pains. It is appropriate for both pre and postnatal ladies (as well as those we have never had kids!)

Pelvic Floor Health

Sunday, Aug 27  //  1:00-3:30pm

Saturday, Nov 18  //  2:00-4:30pm

When we experience a pelvic floor disorder, most of us are told that these issues are inevitable or that we just need to do more kegels. Restorative Exercise offers a different solution: Improve your body alignment, and change the way you move to recover your health.

Come learn the corrective exercises and lifestyle changes you need to heal and prevent these common female issues! This class is ideal for any woman who has experienced, or would like to prevent:

  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Menstrual cramps
  • SI joint pain
  • Edema, swelling
  • High blood pressure
  • Pelvic floor trauma
  • Hip, knee, back or pelvic pain
  • A painful pregnancy
  • A cesarean section (a pelvis that was “too small” or a baby that was stuck/breach/posterior)

Diastasis Recti Recovery

Learn to restore your core through alignment-based exercise. Increase abdominal strength and flexibility, and tune in to the subtleties of natural core function.

– a copy of Katy Bowman’s book Diastasis Recti: The whole body solution to abdominal weakness and separation.
