PELVIC FLOOR, CORE AND SO MUCH MORE.
Incorrect exercise technique and inadequate education has contributed to the proliferation in prolapse and diastasis recti in women in their 20s and 30s, as well as with postnatal and menopausal women. Not forgetting men who can also develop a diastasis.
3-hour workshop will show you can avoid becoming a statistic by exercising
properly and using restorative movement daily.
Who is this workshop for…..
ALL WOMEN….postnatal, menopausal, athletes, couch potatoes, fitness professionals. Pregnant ladies can attend but will need to speak with Paulette to ensure they can participate in the exercise session. You will need to have had your ‘six-week’ check and, sadly, babies cannot attend this workshop (but we will have a break should you need to give a quick breastfeed). Men are welcome but please chat with paulette first!
The workshop will be a mix of theory and discussion, as well as exercise and relaxation. You will learn…..
· How posture and breath effect pelvic floor function
· Pelvic floor anatomy and
exercises to strengthen
· What diastasis recti is, what
causes it and why it's necessary when you're pregnant
· How to return safely to exercise and
avoid prolapse and diastasis
· That incontinence doesn’t
always mean your muscles are too loose
· How to
incorporate pelvic floor strengthening
into daily movements
· A ‘pelvic floor
and core’ daily exercise
routine to consolidate your learning
You will also get to experience The Center Method for Diastasis Recovery™ fascia release balls which will help realign your rectus abdominus muscles and leave you feeling completely relaxed.

“Paulette is a fantastic teacher – very knowledgeable, incredibly passionate and eager to share, patient, hands on, down to earth plus she has a great sense of humour! I highly recommend Paulette and wouldn’t hesitate to do future workshops with her,” Helen Griffiths KFRP, Kinesiologist, www.wellbein.gs
“Paulette's amazing. My recovery was so much faster once I started working with her. Before that I was struggling with pain, discomfort and my diastasis. I was really depressed as a result. As soon as I started, I felt reassured and my health improved noticeably. She's extremely caring and generous. I would recommend her without hesitation,” Romola, Mum of twins.
