Intuitive movement in the postnatal series

Intuitive movement is moving it’s way into the fitness world and I like to think that we follow this approach throughout the classes we do at the studio and in our online series.

But what is intuitive exercise? – It is about listening to your body, understanding what it needs in that moment, and adjusting your workout accordingly—in other words, it’s about tapping into your intuition, both body and mind, and moving in a way that feels good and supports you on all levels.  

When you exercise intuitively, you’re moving your body in a healthy, respectful way with less injury but more strength and stamina in a safe way.

Having a baby and wanting to recover can be so frustrating, our lives and our time has changed and the need to get back to our “old bodies” can rush us into exercise that does more damage to our body in the long run.

During the postnatal series allow yourself to modify the intensity or pressure of the exercise on your body. The magic will happen when you can embrace both options: pushing yourself in the workout when your body is ready for it, and pulling back when your body is telling us something’s not right. 

Learning to exercise with intuition allows you to discover the joy in movement, where exercise becomes a deeply rewarding experience – something to look forward to – rather than a chore.

I hope you find your motherly intuition throughout the series and enjoy the natural way your body is wanting and needing to heal.
