Calling all post-natal ladies that are concerned with your tummy! (no matter how old your child is now)
Do you feel concerned with your core?
Are you worried about the 'gap' or doming down the midline of your tummy?
Would you like to feel more at home with your new body?
As someone who has been in this field for the last almost 14 years....I am concerned A LOT by what I see on social media...
Is it reality to think that we can go back to having a tummy like our 20 year old self?
I strongly believe this idealism does not do our sense of worth any favours (or acknowledge the miracle that our body has performed)
I am passionate about ladies feeling at home in their new body, and also about them being SAFE with the strategies they use to 'get fit' postpartum.
Most ladies, post-partum, have a gap in their mid-line, because of accomodating room for baby during pregnancy.
Why would strengthening our posture help our pelvic floor?
Nothing in our body works in isolation. Old text books used to display the start & end of a muscle, however, what we know through scientific research more recently, is that the muscles are bound toegther in a 'web' of connective tissue. So if we have a 'chink' in the chain, this is going to have effect along the system.
One of the 6 chains is here - the superficial posterior line:
We take 17,000 to 20,000 breaths in a day...so why not put some of them to good use?
Current research shows that when breathing isn't optimal it can trigger:
So what does optimal breathing look like?
I'm excited to announce we have a guest workshop coming!!
“Mind over Menopause" - developing strategies for coping when our hormones run amok!
Date & Time: Friday 9th November – 7.00 - 9.00 pm
Venue: Vitality Centre, Manchester Road, Huddersfield.
So, we are doing all we can to address our hormonal imbalances and the related symptoms. We care for our bodies through exercise and think carefully about what we eat. We try to find time for self- care and relaxation. But do you sometimes still feel stressed, overwhelmed and anxious? Do you sometimes lose it, experience moments of negative emotions and find it hard to stay positive & motivated?
If so, we might have just the thing to help! Lisa Dickinson, a trainer and coach (www.lpda.co.uk ), will share some strategies for building resilience, managing some of those difficult emotions or thoughts and dealing with stress in the moment.
How we react to and handle different stressors in our lives, depends on a lot of things; workloads, time constraints, the people we interact with, our past experiences, and there is something more, our personality. There are inherent connections between stress, resilience and personality style. Once we gain an awareness of these connections, we can use the insights to put our personality strengths to work for us (instead of against us) to improve our stress levels.
This interactive, fun workshop will help you to:
Lisa runs workshops and 1:1 coaching programmes that help people to understand how their personality impacts their lives and their stress style. She provides practical tips that you can incorporate into everyday life.
