ABOUT THE COURSE
Core Rehab is a 6 week course perfect for those who have just had a baby* and are beginning their journey back to exercise, or just want to get strong for life as a new mum.
Over the 6 weeks you will start to bring awareness back into your body, learning techniques that will help you, not only recover from having your baby, but prepare you for life as a new mum.
At Planet Mama we truly believe in rebuilding foundations and respecting what the body has been through. Slow and steady wins the race.
Our initial focus will be on reconnecting with your deep core using breath & gentle loading, plus stabilising the pelvis by activating and firing up the glutes.
Over the 6 weeks the intensity will gradually increase, with the intention of building a great foundation and working on common motherhood moves, such as squats, lunges and deadlifts. We’ll also include lots of juicy releases for those common tight areas and mobilisations to get you feeling good.
