Restore Your Core: A Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Group Exercise Class
A pelvic health physiotherapy assessment + 6 week pelvic health exercise class designed to help support new mamas to get re-acquainted with their postpartums selves! This class is appropriate for mothers of all ages and stages!
I am offering a small group class designed to help women safely return to exercise after pregnancy and childbirth. It starts with an individual pelvic health physio consult so that if you have a diagnosed condition such as diastasis rectus abdominus, pelvic organ prolapse, or urinary incontinence, we can accommodate your unique needs in a group setting.
This class is special because its not just a group exercise, personal training or yoga class and its not an individual physiotherapy session, but somewhere in between. Learn the capacities you need to take better care of your whole self during this period of life transitions.
This is a pre-registered series of 6 weekly classes held at Cumberland Physio and Yoga. Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:00pm class (provided minimum enrolment is met) starting May 15th to June 19th. The total cost for 8 classes is $225.
Initial consult’s will be booked prior to 1st group class (I will call you to book an appointment after you have signed up for the class).
This class is run by Lindsay Ishoy, a registered physiotherapist who has specific training and experience in pelvic floor women’s health physiotherapy and yoga therapy. Because this class is a customized group treatment based upon individual assessment and re-assessment, we can provide receipts that can be submitted to health benefit plans for reimbursement. We recommend you check with your benefits plan to make sure that they will cover “group exercise treatment.”
The classes will be 75 minutes in length. We will meet up within the week before classes to do a one on one pelvic health physiotherapy assessment. The first class will include education and the beginnings steps of breath, pelvic floor and core work. We will progress through yoga based breath and functional exercises in different positions to improve the strength and co-ordination of all the muscles associated with your core. Each exercise will have different variations to make sure everyone is challenged while moving and breathing well. The final class will involve an individual re-assessment. Everyone will be sent off with a set of challenging home program to continue on their own.

Once we have enough interest from patients, I am hoping to offer regularly scheduled therapeutic yoga classes (groups of 4-6) as a means for patients to stay motivated and connected in the long run. The small group setting allows for individuals to feel safe and supported. It also creates space for modifications to be tailored to the group on any given day.
Stay tuned for when these classes might be starting up…
