Pelvic Floor & Core (51 minutes)
Start your postnatal recovery right here! This five-part series is a step-by-step guide, reconnecting you with your pelvic floor muscles and supporting repair in your abdominal muscles following pregnancy and birth. These videos talk about the very basics of recovery, and teach exercises to safely support Diastasis Recti as well. I recommend everyone to complete this series before moving onto the rest of the course so that you have a thorough understanding of your body and therefore a safe postnatal yoga practice.

C-Section Recovery Classes (53 minutes)
These classes have been specifically designed for those who have had a c-section and want to begin their postnatal yoga journey gently. These postures will work to relieve tension in the body while taking great care of your abdominal muscles. You can choose between a seated sofa-based class, or a mat-based class. Although these classes are abdominal birth specific, these movements and postures are perfectly safe for everyone, and suitable for those with Diastasis Recti too.
