These exercises feel really, really good to a tired, sore and fatigued postpartum body. And they don't take much time to do because I know finding time to yourself right now is pretty limited. Whether you can get them all done at once or you can do a few at a time, they will give you relief, Mama.
And if you’re further along postpartum (months, years, even) and still feel you need to heal from your birth experience, you can do these as well. These exercises use a combination of deep, belly breathing, and stretching along with small body movements for the body.
A mother of two and avid sports player, Megan came to me with knee pain and leaking issues. Her fitness seemed to plateau and she couldn't play with her kids like she wanted to.
Over the course of just 4 sessions, we worked on Megan’s breathing, muscle coordination and her exercise form. The results were amazing!
Her knee pain resolved
She did a 5k and her running felt great
She no longer experienced leaking
She finally felt the “right” muscles firing when she did her body building work outs, like her lower abs and her glutes
