Women’s Health 12 week Pelvic Floor online Masterclass. (click here to find out more)    What every peri and post menopausal woman should know!
We are starting a Pelvic Floor coaching and exercise series. At the end of the three months Pelvic Health Coaching course, we aim to have you more aware of, and be on your way to helping you feel more confident, more in control, regaining more normal pelvic floor function, as well as helping your general body fitness. This course is the start of good body maintenance and healthy eating.

The course is online, requiring a commitment from yourself of 1 to 3 times per week of 20 minute to 1 hour of self learning and practical exercises, creating enhanced body movement and awareness. Each week on Wednesday at 10am there will be a live Zoom 15 minute online chat, of education and practical help, with a chance for questions and answers. Following this weekly live chat, you are directed to your YouTube class session for that week to complete in your own time.

The course is aimed at helping you become more aware of how your body moves and helping you to find out what or which muscles are helping and which are hindering you to improve your pelvic floor control.

We hope you will enjoy the personal challenge of working through this programme with us. This exercise programme is designed to help you start to regain normal pelvic floor function and control in a safe, professional way. At no point should you experience abnormal pain, vaginal or rectal bleeding or discharge. If you have any concerns please contact the Clinic or your GP.

We hope that either during or at the end of this 12 week course you will continue to join us each week with our Online Zoom Pilates for Pelvic floor classes held each week every Wednesday at 9am
