If you are a strength and conditioning coach, a doula, someone that works with pregnant and postpartum women, then this is not to be missed. I hate to use the line, “You think you know, but you have no idea.” But seriously, this seminar will rock you at your core, and the bonus is that you will walk out with tools to implement with your clients, male and female.
The gist of this seminar is that this seminar is a strength and conditioning seminar for those that work with pregnant and postpartum athletes. This is ideal for coaches, personal trainers, and anyone that works with women in the fitness world.
A ton of information has been compacted down into two full days. The seminar will be August 18 and 19, 2017 at CrossFit Twente at CrossFit Twente, GJ van Heekstraat 414, 7521 EN Enschede, Netherlands. The seminar will run 8am to 6pm Friday and Saturday with a bonus Functional Progession workshop Thursday afternoon from 4pm-6pm!
Seminar participants will discover birth history in America and how it relates to the present state of birth in our country. Participants will gain a better understanding of anatomy and physiology as it relates to a woman, her cycle, conception, pregnancy, and postpartum. We will explore the origins of BIRTHFIT and how transferable and relatable everything is in life. We will dive deep into developmental kinesiology, breath work, and our principles around the term “core”. (Yes, we discuss diastasis rectus abdominis and pelvic floor issues.) Participants will take a movement journey with us through different stages of pregnancy and postpartum, while also discovering movement and programming options to enhance the wellbeing of a pregnant or postpartum woman. We will explore the phrase “active birth” and relate the power of positions. We close out the weekend with a Queen In Training discussion and what exactly what it takes to be a BIRTHFIT certified coach.
We are leading the way for educating and empowering women in movement and lifestyle.
