This is why the Holistic Core Restore programmes are MORE EFFECTIVE THAN PERFORMING KEGELS ALONE for TRUE CORE RESTORE and Pelvic Floor reconnection and activation.
5 Key Elements:
1. The Myofascial System/Myofascial Meridians/entire Kinetic Chain and their effect on the Pelvic Floor and Entire Core.
2. Functional everyday movement patterns that get the Pelvic Floor/Core ready for REAL LIFE MOVEMENT.
3. ‘Intrinsic Core Synergy’ – The innate synergy of all all the components of the core driven by the breath.
4. We help you nourish your body through ‘just eating real food’ that provides the fuel for deep healing and tissue regeneration on a cellular level.
5. We help you to identify and replace unhelpful nutrition and lifestyle factors that may also negatively impact your Core Restore.
We combine all 4 elements in mindful movement to reconnect you to your Pelvic Floor and Core deeper and with greater specificity than the average exercise programme targetted at women. We move your WHOLE BODY to REPAIR YOUR CORE!
It’s essential that we go deeper and move slower before we start adding weights and moving faster so that we prioritize reconnection above simply thrashing out sets and reps. These programmes have worked for 1000’s of women who leaked when they jumped or had Diastasis and tummys that they simply couldn’t reconnect to and we hope they will work for you!
Here’s what your Pelvic Floor looks like when you’re performing Kegels…….the peaks represent the muscle activation when you ACTIVELY tense and and lift the Pelvic Floor.
Now, this is what happens when we use the Adductors (Inner Thigh Muscles) via their connection through the Fascial System to also help to activate the Pelvic Floor. The Pelvic Floor, doesn’t work in isolation and so asking nearby muscles to help it connect to the whole body can also be part of your integration strategy. But note….NO KEGELS involved….this is UNCONSCIOUS activation of the Pelvic Floor which is also part of restoring innate function.
And here, we add a squatting action, again without performing Kegels to aid PF integration and activation. In our programmes, we’ll tie these functional movements to the breath and add our own unique Pelvic Floor activation cueing to truly create a Pelvic Floor that is ready for movement and the activity that you love to and need to do daily.
And finally, here’s the Pelvic Floor when we’re performing the lunge pattern….pretty impressive!
Crucially, we then combine all of the FUNCTIONAL, FASCIAL, INTEGRATED MOVEMENTS with your breath to really get all the components of your core – your tummy muscles, your Pelvic Floor, your Diaphragm and your low back muscles all ’speaking to each other’ – ‘INTRINSIC CORE SYNERGY’®. So whether you are Pregnant and want to start an effective and easy Whole Body and Core/Pelvic Floor programme to prepare you for bith or you have just had your baby and want a gentle way to reconnect with your Core and heal your Diastasis Recti, or you’ve never had a baby but know that it’s a smart move to ‘prevent rather than cure’ or your in the Peri to Post Menopausal years and feel the changes in your Pelvic Health and want to be proactive, THERE’S A PROGRAMME FOR YOU WITHIN THE SUITE OF HOLISTIC CORE RESTORE® PROGRAMMES.
