Recovery • Strength • Prevention
Do you (or someone you know) live with urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine)? Most women are too embarrassed to talk about it, don’t know that help exists, or think that it’s a natural part of pregnancy, menopause or aging. Incontinence is treatable with exercise! All you need to do is strengthen the pelvic floor. I can show you how!
Dr. Arnold Kegel first described the importance of pelvic floor exercise in the 1940’s. Since then we have learned that the pelvic floor naturally responds to movement and that certain movements create stronger pelvic floor contractions than Kegel exercises. Bladder control is usually a fitness issue and deserves a fitness solution! Pfilates is a method of pelvic floor rehabilitation that uses the most effective Pilates, Yoga, and Personal training movements to condition the pelvic floor, as well as toning the thighs and butt!
Come and learn 10 amazing exercises that will help YOU by:
• Improving bladder and bowel control so you can jump, run, or sneeze with no accidents • Enhancing sexual function • Recovering pelvic floor strength after childbirth or surgery •
NO SURGERY WILL BE NEEDED! 2 hours
THE L.A.W. of BALANCE
Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. Setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life and ultimately achieve them!
What strategies do you apply to overcome barriers to setting goals?
Do you often find yourself “drowning” in many thoughts? Sometimes not knowing which way to turn or feeling in a fog? Goals without action are empty dreams; actions turn dreams into goals. Even if we miss our goals, it does not make us a failure; it only means we have to replan to accomplish our target.
Goals must be S.M.A.R.T. and balanced. My 7 step system will help you get a clearer picture in your mind of what you need to do to bring you closer to your goals. Together we will identify what you REALLY want and learn how to inspire yourself through the Art of B.A.L.A.N.C.E. 2 hours
"Thank you, Rhona, for your presentation to the Vernon Retired TEacher's Association.
It was interesting, interactive, informative, and appropriate for an audience of age 60+. It was also entertaining. The use of the balloons to illustrate points about breathing, exercise and posture were inspiring!
There was something for everyone..."
