Are you struggling to reconnect with your core and body after having kids?Whether it was this year, 2 years ago or even 5 years ago?!
Do you keep getting a sore lower back or hip and shoulder aches and pains?
Do you have abdominal separation that you need to heal safely and effectively?
Is it actually possible to run, jump and play with your kids without worrying about... you know what I'm talking about... it's not cool!
Maybe you've tried pelvic floor exercises but you don't know if you're doing them right and it hasn't seemed to make a difference?
Do you keep getting injuries or niggles every time you try to get back into an exercise routine or go back to the gym or group fitness class?

That is where the Reconnect Your Core program is here to help.

My passion for women’s health and fitness started back in 2006 when I was working in London.
I had a client that was pregnant and wanted to keep training through her pregnancy and it was at that moment I realised there was a gap in my learning. I completed a Bachelor of Physical Education at Otago University, which was amazing, but when it came to pregnancy and postnatal fitness there was a lot I still wanted to learn.
I made it my mission to find and go to all the courses and workshops I could in this area!
After having my twins at 39 weeks, my core and pelvic floor was really weak and broken, just lifting the double stroller into the car was a big effort. It was a tough birth and although I was able to avoid a c-section, the healing process took some time. I still remember when they were about 2 weeks old. I was walking to the washing line thinking ‘there’s nothing holding my hips together and my legs feel like tree trunks’.
Looking back now, I wonder where I would be if I did not know the steps to strengthen my inner core, exercises to relieve back aches and pains from breastfeeding and how to realign my body and give a little bit of time back to my recovery.
It is this piece of knowledge that inspires me to keep talking to mums, knowing that there are mums out there needing this information. Too often I hear that they have put up with lower back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction and just not feeling like themselves for too long after having children. Or that they’ve had abdominal separation and been unaware of what they need to do to heal it and what movements to avoid.
Feel Energised is my PASSION.
A combination of my knowledge and experience as a Mum, Personal Trainer and Health Coach.
I have enjoyed being able to learn proper techniques and stretches to connect with areas of my core which I haven't been able to before, even pre-baby! I have noticed my core firing in everyday situations more often and I'm working on the duration of these. I'm more aware of my posture and how I move as I go about my day. My body feels more relaxed from stretching, especially my shoulders and hips. Lauren
My pelvic floor has improved dramatically mid week I went for a small run with no issues!!! I have also found my back and shoulder pain is getting better and better. Natasha
I have noticed my tummy flattening, hips feeling freer and more balanced, shoulders releasing for better posture and generally more like myself pre children! I would highly recommend your core course to all mums, in fact I have already! Thank you very much!! Lara
I highly encourage women to do this course. You will learn so much and gain an awareness about your body beyond any other class, online information or book. Debs is extremely knowledgeable, explains and demonstrates exercises clearly and is relaxed, welcoming and has a great sense of humour. Melanie
