    This course can help you ease lower back pain, reconnect with your core muscles, minimise menstrual pain and find a fitter pelvic floor. Perhaps you've had a tricky birth, prolapse, back or knee pain.

     

    It might be that you had a baby recently, or that it's been years since they were born. You may not have had children but want to find more comfort and strength in your body. Modern life has many strains that can negatively impact on core and pelvic floor muscles.

     

    You shouldn't have to live with pelvic floor problems. Sadly they are quite common, but they aren't necessarily a normal thing that you have to put up with. There are things you can do to improve your pelvic floor and core strength that will help you live more freely.

  • FAQs

    Answers to some of the questions coming up...

    It's been a long time...

    Will the course suit me?

    Yes. It's fine to join us if you had your kids years ago, or even if you are having back / core or pelvic issues for other reasons.

    Why is it a long course?

    Movement for change

    This course has quite a different approach to most pelvic floor or fitness classes, we explore lifestyle, habits and whole body alignment. It's a course because it takes time to change habits and we make progress through repetition and gradually building on the movements.

    I'm pregnant/recently postnatal

    Will the course suit me?

    The course is totally fine to join if you're pregnant or if you're postnatal, just as long as you've got the go-ahead safety-wise from your GP.

    What are the teacher's qualifications?
