Many changes occur to your body during pregnancy, which challenge your body and mind in many different ways. This may lead to pain and/or dysfunction, possibly limiting your mobility for labour and/or creating imbalances that persist postnatally including distasis recti, core &or pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, and more..

Created by Andrea Plitz, PT & RYT, this 6 week series aims to connect mind and body, assisting you to support the changes throughout pregnancy, prepare for labour,  as well as optimize birth outcomes and recovery postnatally.

Various topics will be discussed and integrated throughout this series including:

  • Understanding and connecting to core, including pelvic floor in various postures and functional movements
  • Preparing body & mind for labour, birth and recovery postpartum
  • Breathwork, Mindfulness & Meditation

Recommended Equipment & Alternatives:

  • Yoga mat, towel, exercise mat, carpet
  • Yoga blocks, folder towel, stack of books
  • Sturdy dining chair (without arms), bench
  • Balls of various sizes: yoga tune up 2" ball, tennis ball, golf ball, lacrosse ball
  • Yoga strap, belt, pillow case
  • Resistance bands, pantihose
  • Water bottle

Logistics: 

  • Classes are 60 minutes and limited to 8 participants for more individual care and ample physical distancing in studio.

Online Support & Progress Tracking: All Physio Rehab Classes are supported via our online platform, Embodia.

We ask that you please complete all questionnaires prior to the start of each class, as well as at two other times after completion of the series. 

Here, you will also be able to participate in a private group forum where you can ask questions and interact with other participants within your series, as well as the instructor and supervising Physiotherapist. 

Billing & Insurance: Classes may be covered by extended health insurance plans under Physiotherapy if you are currently under active care. 

If you are not currently under active Physiotherapy care and would like to deduct these classes from private insurance, a Physiotherapy assessment is required prior to the start of class to determine if this class series is an appropriate form of care for you.

For all outside patients, please have your referring Physio complete the referral form here: https://bloomintegrativehealth.ca/referring-providers/ . It is up to you and your referring Physiotherapist to ensure all paperwork has been submitted prior to the start of classes. You will be notified by email when we receive the proper paperwork. 

Please check with your individual insurance company to determine if these classes will be covered under Physiotherapy. 

The instructors
Andrea Plitz
Physiotherapist & Yoga Teacher
As a physiotherapist and yoga teacher Andrea loves to blend the science and art of biomechanical diagnosis and holistic therapeutics with movement, energy, and breath. She believes a big part of that is helping people to reconnect with their bodies in a new and individualized way taking into consideration their unique health and movement profile. This allows the body and mind to work together to enhance outcomes, integrating positive change in an easy and holistic manner to improve health, function, and movement, returning to oneness.
