Lumbo-Pelvic Stability Retraining Classes

We know that specific muscles work to keep you stable as you sit, walk, stand and exercise. The deepest layer of muscles in you abdominal wall work together with deep back muscles and your pelvic floor to support the joints in your back and pelvis during every movement that you make (core muscles). Unfortunately these muscles can stop working properly due to pain, injury or as a result of poor posture and work habits. The way your body copes with this may actually cause more pain, stiffness, aching, and difficulty moving.

Our exercise classes provide you with the tools to assist your body in working normally.

Our classes are split into 4 stages that progressively advance your muscle movements and abity to move without pain.
