Feeling disconnected from your body during pregnancy?
Are you experiencing any of these symptoms?
Why is this happening?
When most people think of the “core”, they think of washboard abs and doing crunches in the gym. This is a misconception that has contributed to the prevalence of core dysfunctions in many women. Your core is made up of a group of muscles that encircle your trunk — think of it as a corset that stabilizes your spine and pelvis — starting from below the ribcage (the Diaphragm) to the bottom of your pelvis (your Pelvic Floor!). Any holistic approach to core work absolutely needs to include your front, sides, and back, and a connection to your deep muscles. More importantly, it can only be activated correctly when paired with the proper breathing technique, as your diaphragm plays a key role in this!
During pregnancy, a disconnection with the core could potentially lead to poor fetal alignment, difficult deliveries, diastasis recti, and pelvic floor issues. Unfortunately, many prenatal courses currently in the local market focus on avoidance – what exercises not to do. It is absolutely essential to work in a directed approach to fully support your body and the changes it goes through during pregnancy.

Due to the uniqueness of every woman’s pregnancy, this programme is completely bespoke and conducted 1-to-1, and is available at these locations:
