Pelvic Floor Fitness Workshop
NEXT:  May 28th 6 to 8pm

Do you pee a little when you run, laugh or sneeze? Wondering what prolapse or diastasis recti is and if you have it? Experiencing pelvic or low back pain? There’s a good chance that your pelvic floor (the area of muscle between your tailbone at the back and pubic bone at the front) and deep core muscles aren’t functioning properly.

Gain valuable information for maintaining a strong, functional core during pregnancy, the postnatal period, and beyond. Diastasis recti, prolapse, low back pain, pelvic pain, or bladder control issues are signs of a core that isn’t working optimally. You’ll learn all about how to prevent and treat these conditions without medication or surgery.

This workshop is ideal for any age or stage of life, but is especially recommended for pre and postnatal women (remember, if you have ever had a baby – even 30 years ago – you still have a “postnatal” body!)
**Payment is required to hold your spot – spaces are limited.**
Call 705 874 3517 or contact Sarah: playcafeptbo@gmail.com
Emt, Paypal, Credit Card, Cash and Debit in store, are all accepted.

“What do I do if my baby stops breathing or what if my child chokes?” These are the most common questions I get from parents and caregivers.

Becoming a parent is an amazing event full of miracles happening every day but it also makes us feel vulnerable and full of new responsibilities. It is all part of this wonderful journey!

There are many things we can do to prepare ourselves and learning how to keep our family safe in the event of an emergency is definitely one of them!

Join me and learn a skill that will save lives!!

With our CPR class you will learn:

• To understand CPR and how best to handle an emergency
• CPR for an adult, child and infant
• CPR with the help of others
• How to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) on an adult, child and infant
• When and how to help a choking adult, child and infant

My classes are interactive and full of fun! We are a breastfeeding and child friendly class and we can be as flexible as you need. Dress comfortably and be ready for a hands on experience!

*Upon successful completion of the course the student will receive a certification valid for 1 year.
