Holistic Core Restore ®
Holistic Core Restore ® is MORE EFFECTIVE than performing KEGELS or TRADITIONAL ABDOMINAL EXERCISE ALONE for TRUE CORE RESTORE and Pelvic Floor activation and reconnecting and integrating your core to YOUR WHOLE BODY!
The Science Behind It
These programmes are unique because we take your Core and Pelvic Floor, on a journey from the standard ‘squeeze and lift’ Kegel Pelvic floor exercises and crunches and planks to a more enlightened place where we incorporate your breathing and add the functional movement of your daily life to get your Pelvic Floor and core reconnected to the rest of your body like it was originally.
For so many women, it really seems to be a case of PELVIC DISCONNECTION AND A LACK OF CO-ORDINATION RATHER THAN ‘DYSFUNCTION’. And once we get women more mindful, educated and working ‘with’ their bodies again, the magic usually starts to happen.
Our UNIQUE continuum of 6 Phases of Progressed Movement where we journey from supine, seated, static standing, functional standing, functional dynamic, athletic exercises will truly get your Core and Pelvic Floor ready for an active, dynamic and MOVING LIFE because at the end of the day…nobody pees themselves when they are standing still, so it follows that we need to actually train our bodies for the lives we want to live!
Overall, improving your Core and Pelvic Floor function is a whole-body affair! Neither exist in ISOLATION! They as part of a whole human woman and when we want it to work as part of a whole, we’d better train it as part of a whole.

The Key Elements
All the Holistic Core Restore ® programmes combine the below 8 elements with varying ‘exercise tools’ to reconnect you to your Pelvic Floor, Core and entire body with greater specificity and long term success than the average Pelvic Floor, Core or fitness programme usually targeted at women.
1 – FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT, which is Mindful, Progressed, and Bespoke, that prepares a woman for a moving life
2 – MYOFASCIAL TENSIONING Principles
3 – Combination of CONSCIOUS and UNCONSCIOUS ACTIVATION of the Core and Pelvic Floor
4 – Pelvic and Female Health EDUCATION about Pelvic Health and Women’s Health that lasts a lifetime
5 – Supportive Anti-Inflammatory NUTRITION, Hydration and LIFESTYLE Guidance as a PRIORITY
6 – RE-ALIGNMENT, Muscle Releases, and Postural Correction
7 – OPTIMAL BREATHING – proper respiration is a priority
8 – An Empowered and Compassionate ‘Wellness for Life’ MINDSET
Why is HCR ® important for women?
It’s essential that we go deeper and move slower before we start adding weights and moving faster so that we prioritize reconnection above simply thrashing out sets and reps and support your body in the ‘learning process’.
Crucially, we combine all of the FUNCTIONAL, INTEGRATED MOVEMENTS with increased ‘Fascial Tension’ and RESPIRATION, we really get all the components of your core – your tummy muscles, your Pelvic Floor, your Diaphragm and your low back muscles all ’speaking to each other’ – THIS IS WHAT WE CALL ‘INTRINSIC CORE SYNERGY’®.
These programmes have worked for 1000’s of women who leaked when they jumped or had diastasis, back pain and tummies that they simply couldn’t reconnect to and we think they will work for you too!
For a Pelvic Floor & Core that’s integrated into your whole body and FIT-FOR-PURPOSE i.e., Supporting you to live a full life! You’ll LOVE IT!

Which programme is right for you?
Are you recently post-natal?
You can and should start a very basic level Pelvic Floor and Core Re-Connection work as soon as you are strong enough to move. Everyone needs to start by BREATHING, and gently coaxing the awareness of their breath into their body. Once you’ve been given your ALL CLEAR to exercise, do not have a significant diastasis, and if you’re ready to move, then Everywoman is most likely right for you.
Are you ‘not so recently’ post-natal?
Whenever it is that you gave birth – even if he or she is now a teenager or adult, it’s never too late to get a better functioning Pelvic Floor and Core. As we age and head towards Menopause, sometimes the weakness created in the pelvis by a Pregnancy many years ago can become evident so NOW is always a great time to start! If this speaks to you, take a look at our Everywoman programme.
Are you recovering from a hysterectomy?
The Recovery programme is a great way to establish an effective, safe routine for the rest of your life.

Even though you will be screened thoroughly, please seek permission from your doctor as to when is the right time for your to start a programme for your Core/Pelvic Floor that includes this type of movement. Recovery is truly and individual story, so this programme will always be 100% tailored to meet you where you are on your healing journey.
