Postpartum Pelvic Floor Yoga Classes
There are so many changes that occur to a new mom’s body during pregnancy and childbirth. Leona Ham has been seeing postpartum moms for over 10 years for their pelvic floor concerns, her experience with new moms has allowed her to develop a postpartum program that will address the most common complaints that bring moms into her clinic. This program will be comprehensive and is sure to address each and every new moms CORE and pelvic floor strength deficits. Level 1 will include 6 separate electronic handouts that will further help the “mom’s brain” recall what each class has to offer.
Pelvic Floor Classes
Did you know that your Diaphragm forms the roof of your CORE and your Pelvic Floor Muscles form the floor? Everyone is born with a natural diaphragm and pelvic floor rhythm. Stress, pregnancy, childbirth, surgeries, infections and many other illnesses, injuries or diseases can disrupt this rhythm. This disruption will influence the strength of the CORE. Finishline Physiotherapy has developed pelvic floor classes that teach you how to reboot your CORE.
