The classes are designed to allow you to ease back into fitness after labour. Exercises are based on strengthening movements you do on a daily basis. Performing these exercises safely, and integrating proper breathing, core and pelvic floor contraction with these movements is essential, as doing them incorrectly could potentially cause more harm.
Casual Class: you MUST attend the first class of each term to come to a casual class or you will not be permitted to attend unless you have had a 1-1 session with Lesley.
A Pelvic Floor Dysfunction questionnaire will be sent out upon registration and must be received a minimum of 2 days before the start of term. If you have symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction you will be strongly recommended to have an assessment to discuss these findings. It would extremely unprofessional for Lesley to allow clients with suspected Pelvic Floor Dysfunction attend a fitness class that could potentially make symptoms worse or cause more harm. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Post Natal Classes will run in 7 week terms, with the first class of each term being an educational class. Lesley will aim to teach posture, breathing and how to check for a core contraction through clothing. It is impossible for Lesley to be 100% certain you are doing this correctly without a 1-1 assessment. If a contraction cannot be felt, she will inform you and you will be strongly advised to have an assessment to once again assess for any dysfunction. If you wish to continue with the class without being able to feel the core engagement you will do so at your own risk.
Cant make it to class? Want to do some extra training at home between classes? For an extra $25 you can have the exercises emailed to you. ****Please note the online exercises may not be exactly what we do in class and vary slightly. You must be enrolled in the term for this option.****
