Understanding Your Core Function
Saturday, June 30th
11 am to 1 pm
$40 in advance, $50 at the door
space is limited
Get an in depth yet easy understanding of Core Function that will have an impact on how you work out and live your life! Get a true understanding of the layers of abdominals and their precise function so you can tap into your true powerhouse. Many people do “core” work without an understanding of the connections being made and why it so important to stabilize your core when doing challenging movements. In this workshop Rita will explain exactly how the entire system works together by helping you to sync diaphragm with pelvic floor and tie everything back to your deep core firing system so that the next time you do any workout, you will know exactly how things fire each muscle appropriately for the task at hand. These concepts together with some eye opening core challenges will make this and all your workouts more effective! We will discuss a condition called Diastasis Recti (a condition that affects both men and women, not just after pregnancies but we will discuss how pregnancy can play a role whether you are newly postpartum or 10-15 years postpartum. It’s important to understand that this condition is completely within your power to notice and work towards fixing or preventing. With just a little understanding, patience and desire to improve, you will move forward in a direction that will make you the strongest version of yourself.
