Welcome to Generation Moves WholeBody Reconnect (WBR) a brand new online postnatal program designed to help you regain confidence, control and help you get back to the activities you love. And we all know that if Mum is happy then the kids are happy to.
Pregnancy is like training for a marathon and a bodybuilding competition at the same time. It’s done the most incredible thing of bringing new life into the world – WOW your body is incredible!
Sometimes though we can feel let down by our body. It didn’t bounce back how you thought it would. It doesn’t look, work or feel how it should. You stand back when it’s time to play tig, say no to leapfrog, you dread lifting them or anything else for fear of doing damage and you can no longer do the activities that make you happy.
But remember, your body did an awesome job, we all need a little help now and again. Wholebody Reconnect gets you on the right path for postnatal healing and beyond…
Placehold for video
When you sign up to Wholebody Reconnect you get ALL sections this is because the body is connected. So even if you sign up for SIJ pain it could be an imbalance with the pelvic floor that is causing the problem. Each section is connected to the others.
The videos have been arranged in a specific order that I believe gives you the best possible outcome – so no skipping or jumping tracks!
The exercises are slow and controlled. This is because we are reconnecting your body. We are discovering what muscles need strengthening, who needs relaxing and where we can rebalance.
You maybe hesitating to do a recovery program because you’re a mum, there’s the issue of time. Life is fast paced and with new life to care for mind, body and soul is challenged. Generation Move knows this, we’ve been there, we are mums!
But in our experience, to care for others, you need to care for yourself, you need to feel good. Because that goodness, that vibrancy is contagious. Your kids will look at you and think wow that’s my fun mum, she’s crazy, she plays, she moves, she’s strong, she IS Mum!
Because time is precious each video only lasts between 4 and 15 minutes. This makes it easy for you to get through the content when you can. The workouts are no more than 30 minutes, sometimes less and you can stop them at any point.
You can start the program at anytime and you will receive all the content straight away. This is because everyone is different so you may need to spend more time on one section and less time on another. Now, although the videos are broken down into small amounts of time to fit into your day, you do still need to do them everyday for you to see results – more about that later.
Wholebody Reconnect Is For You If…
A Daily Life and Extras section includes bonus content such as nutrition, recipe ideas and lifestyle advice. There are also interviews with other experts. For example, we have Wendy who talks about getting back to running, Helen on ground living (ditching your furniture) and home schooling and how this makes for a better movement lifestyle. We have Hannah who specialises in scar tissue massage and Katy who is a Womens Health Physio talking about what to expect at your appointment and how it’s so important to get an assessment from the inside out.
A meditation soundtrack to use during your all-important “me” time or for your rejuvenating breathing exercises.
100% support throughout. We do not expect you to do this on your own. NO WAY! All you have to do is join the private Facebook group and Gemma your tutor will be there to answer questions or talk about a particular topic and help you troubleshoot.
What Wholebody Reconnect Is Not
This is NOT a quick fix. The movements will possibly be undoing a lifetime of habits and alignment issues. So, don’t expect fairy dust. You need to put the work in to get results. Let me say that again, you need to put the work in, you need to commit to doing the movements most days of the week to get results.
However, to make it as easy as possible most movements take less than 10minutes and we have endeavoured to ensure the workouts are no more than 30minutes long.
A traditional squeeze and release exercise program.
This is NOT a weight loss program. The movements are slow and controlled. Losing weight is not the aim of the game, a body that has healed and become more functional is.
You will find you are stronger and more mobile as your body reconnects. This means you are more likely to return to activities you love safely. And if that’s a weight loss program then you’re more likely to ready.
There’s no suck in that tum terminology.
WHATS EXPECTED FROM YOU
Patience. This is not a quick fire, pound it hard program by any stretch of the imagination. I am not going to goad you with promises of fast results. In this program we are undoing changes that have happened over a course of 9 months and for some we will be challenging you to undo habits of a lifetime. This. Takes. Time.
Do the movements in sequence. There are big reasons why this program has been put together how it is. And that’s to get the best results possible.
Do the Work. Do the Work. Do the work. That doesn’t sound very supportive does it? But what I’m trying to say is that you need to give yourself permission to take out a few minutes of your day for YOUR self-care. Caring for yourself and making sure you are tiptop means that when you go back to your family, they get the best of you and that is the most fantastic gift you can give.
Oh and did I say do the work? – if you only get down and do this once a month. You will not get results. We are reprogramming your mind and body connection therefore you need to do this at least 4x a week but ideally every single day.
