WHAT IS RESTORE YOUR CORE®?
Combining yoga and Pilates-based exercises with the fundamentals of biomechanics, Restore Your Core® will help you to learn how your body moves, and how to improve how your body moves. As you find a new, improved way to move, your body will begin to re-pattern as you go about your day, NOT just during exercise – whole body healing 24 hours a day. As you become familiar with your body's default movement strategies, you will begin to change unhelpful postures and habits such as rounded shoulders, abdominal sucking and pelvic imbalances.
Restore Your Core® classes are carried out either as a short group course (either 4 or 6 weeks), or as one-to-one sessions. Each session includes breath work, corrective exercises and a flowing movement sequence. You will receive homework after every session, as well as useful reading material to familiarise yourself with the basics of healthy alignment and movement.
If you prefer to join an online programme, I will be happy to support you as you work through the sessions at your own pace.
In Restore Your Core® you will learn:
- – Exercises that restore core and pelvic floor function
- – Corrective exercises for your posture and alignment that reduce stress and strain on your core and pelvic floor
- – Breathing patterns that support ideal core and pelvic floor function
- – And a plethora of tips to help you get the most out of your exercises and daily movements
