Restore Your Core
Restore Your Core
Restore Your Core™ is a whole body exercise program which can benefit everyone. It is particularly effective for women who are experiencing a core issue such as diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse or back pain. It is also great for postnatal ladies who want to regain core function after having children.
The RYC® method will retrain your core and pelvic floor muscles to be functional, reflexive, responsive and supportive to your body. Restore Your Core™ helps you learn to move better, exercise better, uncover movement compensation patterns and create new patterns of strength, mobility, length and support.
This method is for you if you…
- Have a core issue such as diastasis recti or pelvic organ prolapse
- Have a ‘mummy tummy’ which still bothers you no matter how long ago you had children
- Have recurrent lower back, hip or pelvic pain
- Have done the RYC® online program and would like to have a one to one session with a RYC® Pro Teacher to address any issues or concerns
In our sessions you will learn…
- How to reduce intra-abdominal pressure to restore a functional core
- Corrective exercises for your posture and alignment that reduce stress and strain on your core and pelvic floor
- Exercises that restore core and pelvic floor function
- Breathing patterns that support ideal core and pelvic floor function
- And a plethora of tips to help you get the most out of your exercises and daily movements
What to expect in a session
Typically your first session will be a full assessment including your alignment, breathing and core strategy. I will also look at your movement habits, compensations and gait pattern where appropriate. I will then teach you optimum alignment for your body, breathing techniques to reduce intra-abdominal pressure, and how to properly engage your deep core musculature in order to rehabilitate the core and whole body back to health.
Sometimes I might suggest a session of manual therapy with me to help deal with any tightness or imbalances in the body. This might involve myofascial release on the abdomen or deep tissue massage anywhere on the body that may be contributing to your core issue.
After each session you will be given a set of a few corrective exercises given in video form. I usually advise you spend about 15 minutes 4-5 times a week doing these exercises and then come back for a follow up in a couple of weeks to re-assess and progress.
