Course Overview

A stronger core may reduce back problems, improve posture, balance and strength throughout the whole body. Stronger pelvic floor will help with incontinence, especially postnatally and a well-maintained diaphragm can help reduce stress and anxiety.

During these four weeks we will

  • Focus on strengthening all parts of the core, including the diaphragm and pelvic floor;
  • Take a progression through arm balancing and work specifically on Crow and Forearm Balancing
  • Dip our toes into breathwork and how to use the diaphragm properly
