During training we focus on these main areas:
1. Diaphragmatic breath
You will learn the correct way to breathe. Diaphragmatic breathing reduces stress and toxins in your bloodstream, allows for more optimal fat burning, and has been scientifically proven to give you smarter babies. This is the first step in giving you a functional core.
2. Functional core:
Proper core function will take the strain off your back and other muscles. We will be putting your core to work to do the job it was made to do. We achieve this using diaphragmatic breath, activating your TVA and Pelvic floor. We will use corrective exercise to target any muscle compensations or weaknesses- which will alleviate pain
3. Corrective exercise:
Corrective exercise allows for better easier, less painful body/muscle function. It prevents injury by getting allowing your muscles to work how they should.
During our workouts we will focus on activating under-active muscles. These are most commonly your diaphragm, Transverse Abdominus, pelvic floor and glutes.
4. Labor Training/supermom training:
These workouts are specifically designed to prepare you for labor or postpartum once you have the correct and proper core function. They will be a mix of high intensity intervals and rest periods. Exercise and Labor use the same pain relieving hormones. Training your body to elicit these hormones, allows you to organize and use them more efficiently during labor!
5. Meditation & imagery training: We will end each training session with a guided meditation or imagery session. This will allow you if pregnant to practice for labor in a safe and calm place.
