Postnatal Core (Re)Connection

In this core-focused postnatal practice, you’ll “knit” your abdominal muscles back toward the midline after months of the belly expanding to make space for your baby. The sequence includes isometric work on all fours, sphinx, variations of forearm plank, barrel rolls, abdominal curls in supported hand to big toe pose, and more. Practice a hissing breath throughout that’s designed to engage the transverse abdominis, obliques, and rectus abdominis. Give your core some love and see if you feel more internal support afterward.
