Low Pressure Fitness for Post-Natal Recovery

with Simone Muller

Low Pressure Fitness is an extremely effective technique used for core restoration. The method is particularly helpful and safe for postpartum rehabilitation from conditions such as diastasis recti (abdominal separation) and pelvic floor dysfunction (including prolapse and incontinence). Both of these conditions are very common after pregnancy and childbirth and need specialised training to aid recovery.

Traditional abdominal exercises, in particular sit ups, increases abdominal pressure and can in fact worsen pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis recti.

Low Pressure Fitness based on hypopressive training, is a new approach to rehabilitation postpartum providing a very helpful tool for new and not-so-new mothers to use. The technique also works to improve posture and breathing, which leads to regaining function and strength in the true core including the pelvic floor.

In this two hour workshop with Low Pressure Fitness and Pilates instructor Simone Muller, we explore this technique in more depth, learning how to do a rib opening or stomach vacuum (shown in the image above) and learning some of the Level 1 positions.

Mother of two, Simone has experienced impressive results in post-natal recovery both for herself and for her students. These have significantly superseded the results she has had working with mothers as a Pilates teacher for many years.

Find out more about Low Pressure Fitness on our Blog where we Q&A Simone about her personal experiences practicing and teaching this method.

Can I Bring My Baby?

This particular workshop is specifically about mothers taking time out away from their babies for undistracted and much needed self care. We really want mothers to get the full benefits of this important work and for that it requires full focus, which can be difficult with a room full of babies. The beauty of this technique is that once you have learnt it, it is something that can be practiced at home in short bursts of time between the demands of a young baby. Mothers who have attended previous workshops have fed back that they found the time to focus on themselves and their bodies incredibly helpful and energising.

If you are breastfeeding and are unable to leave your baby, please discuss the option to bring a partner/guardian with your baby to the Shala. Contact the admin team to discuss.
