What is the Restore Your Core six week foundations course?
The Restore Your Core six week foundations course will provide you with essential tools to help you to reconnect to your body after having children – no matter how long ago you gave birth. Carrying a baby, giving birth to a baby (whether vaginally or by caesarean section) and then looking after and raising that baby can take its toll on your mind and your body.
Many of us mums lose the connection with our bodies particularly with our core and pelvic floor. Whether you are wanting to jump back into the exercise you were doing pre-pregnancy or you want to move through your daily life feeling strong, the Emma Riedo Movement Restore Your Core foundations course will give you the tools you need to reconnect with and strengthen your whole body.
Whether you choose to practice at home with the videos and manual provided or just attend the classes, every woman who attends the classes learns something about their daily movement patterns that they can then use in day to day life for all day strengthening and healing.
Who is the Restore Your Core foundations course for?
The six week course is for you if you want:
- To reconnect to your body after having a baby; and/or
- To improve the strength and function of your core muscles; and/or
- To improve pelvic floor strength and function; and/or
- Improve or resolve continence issues; and/or
- Heal or improve symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse and/or a diastasis recti; and/or
- To help future proof your core and pelvic floor as you move through the phases of life.
The course can help you with all of the above regardless of whether you are pregnant, newly postnatal (after your doctor’s clearance) or long time post-natal.
How is a Restore Your Core course with Emma Riedo Movement different to other exercise courses or classes for core function?
It is a whole body exercise programme – we don’t just spot treat the core. Everything in your body is connected and needs to be looked as one big jigsaw puzzle. Throughout the course you will be given pieces of information that will help you tune into your body and to understand what it is telling you that it needs. You will begin to understand what pieces of your own jigsaw puzzle need to work or move differently, what needs strengthening and lengthening and what needs releasing.
As you move through the course you will learn your body’s own personal movement patterns, its blind spots and you will receive the tools to gradually repattern those movements throughout the day, so that they are more optimal. After each class you will receive two home practice videos, one with all the instructions you received in class and one done at a faster pace with less instruction. You will also receive a manual with all of the exercises from the class and the home practice.
I’m pregnant, can I still come to a Restore Your Core Foundations or Intermediate course?
Yes, although we do not have a pregnancy specific class yet, the course is still perfect for use during pregnancy either as prehab (you don’t have any symptoms or issues with core and/or pelvic floor dysfunction) or as rehab (you have symptoms of core and/or pelvic floor dysfunction).
Can I bring my baby?
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your baby up to the stage of crawling to the classes on Monday or Tuesday or a 1-2-1 session. I’ve decided to make the Saturday classes baby free, as everyone seems keen to carve out their quality me time without distractions.
