As I write this, I have just returned from an amazing week working on my MuTu ProTM certification. I am so inspired and bursting with knowledge to share with all of the women I work with, so I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you more about what MuTu® is and why I love it.
What is it?
MuTu is a system to help you learn about your postpartum body and what kind of movement will be safe and effective in helping you heal and recover from pregnancy and birth. The focus is on healing the core and pelvic floor and having a body that functions well and feels good.
The system is designed to fit into a busy mom’s life, so there are easy to follow videos for core and more intensive workouts, as well as information on the ‘why’ behind the movements and changes you are being asked to make. It is set up as a 12-week program, but you are reminded to move on from week to week only when you and your body are ready.
MuTu is a great program to reconnect with your core whether you are pregnant, had babies recently or many years ago. If you are looking to get back into more “hardcore” activities like running, boot camp, climbing, lifting, skating etc. MuTu can help you get the strong and functional core you need to do that.
Why do I love it?
There is SO much information on the internet about how to get your body back after baby and diastasis recti, the core and the pelvic floor are being discussed a lot more (finally!!!). The problem is wading through to find out what information is correct, what isn’t, who is truly an expert, who isn’t. It is overwhelming to say the least.
I have been studying and teaching about the human body for 15 years and specifically postpartum bodies for 5 years. I love that the MuTu System puts the latest research and science into an easy to understand format that is simple to follow. That doesn’t mean it is easy- gentle exercise that is safe for your core and pelvic floor doesn’t necessarily mean it is easy. In fact most of my clients are often surprised by how hard gentle exercises can be once they learn how to do them right.
Mostly I love the MuTu System because it isn’t about being a ‘Hot Mama’ or “Sexy Mom”. Being sexy is highly individual and something only YOU are in charge of. And it sure as h*ll has a lot more to do with who you are and how you feel about yourself than how your stomach looks. MuTu is about giving you the knowledge about your body that you need to recover and feel good in your own skin. It is all about empowering YOU to be the one in charge of your own body. And if there is anything I love as much (almost) as my family, peanut butter, and chocolate, it is empowered women.
