Urban Yoga

Core and Floor Restore 101

When: Saturday, October 28th, 1:30-3:30pm
Where: Urban Yoga, Level 3/ 160 Willis Street
Investment: $50

Join Urban Yoga senior teacher Shelley McCarten for a two hour specialty workshop designed to break down the basics of the core and pelvic floor, and help you form a solid foundation for function, strength and mobility from the inside out.

Core function is not just isolated to certain muscle groups such as the abdominals. In this workshop we will use tools that integrate core training and optimal breathing techniques to reignite your core.

If you find you struggle with back pain, pelvic pain, diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, or if you just feel disconnected from your core due to pregnancy, childbirth or menopause, then this workshop is for you.

You Will Learn:
    • How your core works, and the movement building blocks you can use to build a stronger and more functional you.
    • How to find your movement blinds spots to reignite your reflexive core.
    • How to efficiently utilise the breath to create strength and length for the pelvic floor, and to optimally engage your core when you need it the most.
    • How to use movement and mindfulness practices to make you feel good, embody your unique shape, and to meet you where you are in your body awareness journey.

This special event is limited to a small group of participants to allow for individual attention. Booking ahead is essential for this sure to be popular workshop.

Please note it will be a mixture of discussion and movement. We reccomend wearing layers to take off/put back on to stay warm throughout.

Shelley McCarten Urban YogaAbout Shelley

Shelley’s classes are down to earth, accessible and inquisitive, incorporating yoga postures injected with functional exercise and natural movement, to create strength and active flexibility from the inside-out.

Heading up the Pregnancy and Postnatal programme at Urban Yoga, her specialised knowledge is influenced by experts such as biomechanist Katy Bowman, Restore Your Core and One Strong Mama founder Lauren Ohayon, Restorative Exercise + Yoga teacher Jenni Rawlings and personal trainer Jenny Burrell. She also keeps up to date with the research and work of physiotherapists Julie Wiebe, Diane Lee, Antony Lo and Lori Forner.

Shelley has been teaching since 2011 and is accredited with a Vinyasa Flow and Hatha Teaching Certificate with Katy Appleton, and Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga with Uma Dinsmore Tuli, however, her constant curiosity in body-mind-movement means she is continuously deepening her knowledge in somatics and exercise science.

She is currently studying on the 52 Everyday Biomechanics course with Katy Bowman, The New Wave of Yoga with Michael Stone and Kathryn Bruni Young, as well as online training Find Your Foundation: Training for the Pelvic Floor with physiotherapist Sarah Ellis Duvall, and “Bulletproof” Your Body – Pelvic Floor and Core Level 1 with physiotherapist Antony Lo.
