Phase One is your home base : developed to heal + strength train you from the inside-out.
Rachel uses breath-based core activation to rebalance intra-abdominal pressure, strengthen your pelvic floor, abs, back and rib cage and a soft foam roller to release tension and sooth your nervous system. Learn how to isolate and tone your abdominal muscles, glutes, and thighs while releasing chronic back, neck, shoulder and hip pain. This phase addresses all common post natal injuries : diastasis recti, prolapse, incontinence and scar tissue adhesions while training you safely and effectively to recover and re-integrate your core into your daily, functional life.
Repeat this phase as frequently as needed. If you take a break in exercise, dip back into this 28-day series to kickstart your routine and return here regularly to infuse these foundational concepts into your athletic lifestyle.
