Get Moving!
If you've given birth, whether vaginally or via c-section, your body needs to recover and your core needs to be restored and strengthened. We have two great offering to help you do just that both of which are safe & appropriate for moms recovering with diastasis recti (ab separation). Postnatal CORE Restore  Tuesdays at 11am and the NEW! semi-private Oov for Postpartum Recovery Tuesdays, 12:15pm. The Oov activates core stabilizing muscles while also gently extending the spine to stimulate healthy intervertebral disc lubrication. Basically, it feels AMAZING! From stretching to core strengthening to restorative movement, or for relaxation, the Oov offers significant benefits for postnatal women. If you're looking for a purely fun way to get active again after baby come to Baby and Me Belly Dancing Fridays at 2pm.
