Postnatal Restore & Strengthen

Restore the post-birth body & mind

For all Mums, at any stage post baby. With an Exhale Physiotherapy assessment this 4-week course will focus on deep core and pelvic floor health. Using yoga we’ll work on key areas of recovery including abdominal and pelvic floor strength, releasing fascia and targeting prime areas of physical tension, and simple, effective breathing practices to release mental tension. Respecting the changed post birth body, you’ll re-find strength and have a bunch of practices you can continue to perform on your own.

In your 45min Exhale Physiotherapy appointment, women’s health physio Ruth Schubert will perform a detailed assessment of your abdominal wall muscles, checking for abdominal separation as well as correct activation strategies to improve your core strength. Education and assessment of pelvic floor function is undertaken to ensure you can connect to these muscles and rehabilitate them following pregnancy and birth. We’ll also then be able to cater to any specific needs in our 4-week course.

To ensure we get a targeted, focused hour each week effectively working on your recovery, this is a Mums only course (bub free).

8-9am Saturdays x 4 weeks. Upcoming dates TBC. Please emails us to register your interest.

$260 (including your $110 pre-assessment on which health care refunds are available. You’ll be issued with a receipt to claim directly via your health fund)

Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive contact details to book directly with Exhale Physiotherapy for your 45min consultation – available at Alana Healthcare for Women, Randwick each Monday, Wednesday, Friday; and Yogala, Maroubra each Thursday.

Roll & Release

Myofascial release for restricted muscles, fascia & the nervous system

Experience the benefits of myofascial release for restricted muscles, fascia and the nervous system.

Fasica is a connective tissue that connects every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and internal organs. In the normal healthy state the fascia is relaxed and soft. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When you experience physical trauma or inflammation the fascia loses its pliability. It can become tight, restricted and a source of tension throughout the rest of the body.

Using Franklin Balls and other small equipment, Paola will lead you through a range of releases to break down tight tissue. Some of the many benefits include: increased circulation and blood flow to the soft tissues, increased flexibility and range of movement, reduction in injury scar tissue, and pain relief.

You’ll feel like you’ve have a massage by the time you leave!

With over fifteen years experience as a dance, pilates and yoga professional, Paola brings an immense knowledge of the body to all her classes.

Limited places, advance booking recommended as these workshops do fully book.
