When a grieving member of Fit2B whose belly had been through a great many hard things mentioned that she wished we had a series of gentle moves and words to help her with grief recovery, process her past, and do some deliberate releasing of the tension stored in her core, her request was instantly echoed by others in our private member forum.
Having had a miscarriage myself, I know how my own body shut down for 6 months after that awful loss. It wrecked me, and every year, during the month of May – right around Mother’s Day – there’s a certain grieving ache I still feel deep in my core. I’ve seen in our private member forum how other kinds of loss, abuse and trauma have impacted other women’s core rehabilitation, too, and it doesn’t just go away. Along with narrowing diastasis recti, addressing core and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, and restoring full function to the entire physical body, the emotional and spiritual side plays a huge role in putting a woman back together.
Please watch this introduction video with Kelly Dean, core rehab specialist and founder of The Tummy Team clinic. It will explain what you can expect from the language and movements within the workout which you’ll find below.
It’s not just about loss, though. While Kelly herself has dealt with losing 6 babies in their second trimester, and her tragic losses and professional training enable her unique ability to both rehabilitate and sympathize with all the women who utilize her clinical and online programs, this routine is for any type of grief being held over as body tension.
Watching this intro to grief recovery video will allow you to decide if the routine below is right for you. It will also help you determine a time you’ll feel “ready” for the workout, and you’ll be able to begin the routine and “just move” without as many explanations that could interrupt the flow of the motions.
