SportsCare and Physiotherapy are commencing Post Natal exercises classes at their Bruce clinic, located in the Ochre Health Medical Centre at the University of Canberra.
The classes provide new mothers with the opportunity to return to exercise in a safe and supportive environment. Bruce is an ideal central Belconnen location with free parking, and both mum and bub are invited along to the class.
Classes are run by physiotherapists Anna Mackay and Kate Da Silva who have training in Women’s health and Pilates respectively. Exercises will focus on pelvic floor muscle strength, core strength and functional movements. All exercises are low impact.
Women can start the classes following their 6 week medical check-up. They will require a Post Natal exercise screening, which is conducted at SportsCare and Physiotherapy in Bruce. It is a 40 minute screening at a cost of $25. Classes are offered in 5 and 10 week blocks.
