Great Class and really suitable for any beginner not just post natal clients.  Love the imagery to help find a 6 dimensional activation of the powerhouse.
These classes are all based on functional and progressive movement that hospitals use after any major surgery. They work the same way a baby learns to roll over before they crawl. Breathing is the key component. 
We all need fundamentals in our practice!
I'm glad the imagery worked well for you.
This is a great series so far. I would love to know your thoughts on when each class is appropriate for clients post birth?

This is a great question. 

The first 2 classes in the series are for the very early days. This could mean the day after baby is born or it could be when ever mom is ready to start core rehabilitation. For some that might mean 10 + years post pregnancy. It’s never too late to reconnect with the Pelvic Floor.

Classes 3 & 4 are designed for after a Postpartum checkup usually around 6 weeks without any complications. I personally couldn’t start these classes until 6 months due to some major limitations.

The final 2 classes are to help a woman transition back into more traditional Pilates exercises. This often happens around the 1 year mark but is very different for everyone.  Challenging the core safety is essential to abdominal recovery.

Perfect. Thank you. I'm using this series as part of my certification process (special populations). I never had a c-section, but I wish i had known about this when I was trying to get back into pilates after my daughter was born. She's 6 now :). Ill definirtelty be watching the last two classes in the next day or so, thanks so much for your response!
