Pilates for Pelvic Health

Pilates has become the go-to exercise class for core strength, mobility, and back issues.  For women with pelvic health issues including prolapse the hope is it’s an exercise class we can join without risking making our symptoms worse. 

The main thing we need to avoid when we have either pelvic floor weakness or prolapse is increasing abdominal pressure, so stopping the amount of force we push down into our tummy when we exercise, sneeze, cough, laugh or dare we say run!

If you feel like you breath hold, bare down or have a tummy that domes when you carry out Pilates exercises then we need to look at how you manage abdominal pressure. 

The Hypopressive technique is something you may not have heard of, but it was created by a Belgium Physiotherapist in the 1980’s and its aim is to strengthen your core and pelvic floor improving prolapse symptoms, reducing leaks and back pain, by activating the core and reducing intra-abdominal pressure. 

We coach this technique in our consultation packages to enable you to take part in Pilates or any other exercise you wish confident that you are in control of your body.

“Sarah and Lizzie have helped me, improve my posture, improve my blood pressure, my stress incontinence is gone and so have the panty liners, I have my body shape back, I have a waist again and I am stronger in my mind and body” – Mary

Ready?

If you would like to start your rehab we offer consultation packages to suit everyone.

All of our packages include an initial one hour consultation where we discuss in detail your current symptoms and diagnosis if you have been given one, your biggest concerns, what you want to achieve and then complete a posture and breathing assessment to establish where you are now.

We then teach you the Hypopressive breathing technique as a base exercise to get you working straight away on the issues that have bought you to us today.

Our 1-1 coaching sessions are progressive sessions taking you step by step through training that we know will help you achieve your goals. This will include further Hypopressive training to really understand how this improves strength and build positive habits with this amazing technique, but we don’t stop there. We create an exercise plan based on your personal needs and goals this could be to help release a tight pelvic floor or build strength around the glutes and lower back to support your pelvic area. Each session is tailored specifically for you, your needs and your ability.

We have three training options for you, take a look below.

It’s time to value yourself, look after yourself and become stronger and more in control

If you have any questions about how we can help, then get in touch. Sometimes just asking is the first step.

We are two busy Mums who have worked in fitness for over 20 years. We started our Fit Mummy classes almost 10 years ago to help women stay strong and healthy during pregnancy, followed by our popular Mummy Rebuild core rehab courses for once the baby arrived. 

We soon realised that more women needed our help and not just postnatally.  There is a real lack of core rehab options available to help women with prolapse diagnosis, pelvic floor weakness, post abdominal surgery - like hysterectomy - and especially the transition through menopause when symptoms that have not been that bad start to get worse.

Our main focus for core and pelvic floor rehab is to use hypopressives, then to add Pilates and stretches to get the core to function properly again.  

We will support you, motivate you and we have lots of ways to help you keep on track with your rehab but at the end of the day you will need to make a commitment to yourself and your pelvic health to spend some time fixing it.  

However, this doesn't have to take more than 10 minutes a day. Above all, consistency is key to improving these issues.  If you are ready to make that next step and Revive your core and pelvic floor then let's do this.  We have different training options to offer. We understand life is busy and not one option suits us. 

So, if you are ready to get started,  just let us know and we will send you over more information. 

Exciting times 

Lizzie & Sarah
