In this clinic, we will go over the body's core system of stabilization and how it functions. In the lecture portion, we will discuss the anatomy, kinematics, and applications of a functional core for daily movement as well as the ramifications of dysfunction within that system. We will briefly talk about how this process applies to weightlifting and other loaded movements. All attendees will also get the opportunity to practice stabilizing correctly in different positions with the guidance of the instructor.
The session is free and open to the public, and the information will largely focus on prenatal and postpartum training and mindset. We will discuss a few important physical changes that can accompany pregnancy and birth and impact a woman’s postpartum body. I will introduce some ways we can prepare women prenatally for a faster recovery as well as assist their bodies in healing postpartum. Postpartum includes all women who have been pregnant before, regardless of whether or not the baby was carried to term. It includes women who gave birth hours ago and those whose kids are having kids of their own. Let’s change the idea that women must simply deal with common problems that can appear after giving birth, and instead teach them to understand the symptoms of dysfunction and what to do about it.
Everybody is welcome to attend. Coaches, partners, couples, singles, and of course pregnant or postpartum mammas. You do not have to be a mother to support the mothers in your community. Kids are also welcome, but (based on age) you may need to bring a helping hand so everybody can fully participate. Bring any tools you will need to take notes
