The role of posture in proper core function is absolutely essential! You can work on improving your posture throughout your day – no need to set aside time to do so, you just do it as you stand, sit and move throughout your day. So easy – now is the perfect time for you to start improving your posture which will also help you find and strengthen your deep core muscles.

Watch {or just listen} to my live broadcast with Suzanne Hoval, women’s health physical therapist and creator of Bao Bei Maternity, as we dive in and talk about posture and core function both during pregnancy and beyond!

We must work on our ‘foundation’ before we start increasing our exercise intensity. While the foundational exercises may seem too ‘easy’ or simplistic, focusing on these movements will allow you to start finding muscle and fascial connections you’ve never felt before!

What is the most amazing thing about that?! Once you ‘find’ those deep core connections, become more in-tune with your body, and start to move for optimal core function, your body will feel incredible!

Once postpartum mama, always postpartum. It’s really never too late to start restrengthening the deep core through simple, effective, and rehab-like exercises. The sooner you can start, the better off your body will be in the long run.

Here are several tips and cues to help you start improving your posture and core connection TODAY:

Posture Cues:

  • Stand, sit and move while lengthening tall through the top of your head.
  • Avoid locking your knees.
  • Neutral pelvic positioning is key for optimal core function.
  • Avoid tucking your butt under and drawing your belly to spine.
  • Breathe deep into the sides and back of your ribcage.

Restore — Rehab — Recover {thanks Suzanne for those cues, love that!}
