Mama/Baba-fit

A structured 5 session course led by experienced manual therapist Nik Bellot, who takes you through your postnatal recovery period, focussing on safe exercises and guiding you to connect, strengthen and balance your way to better health. Appropriate physical activity is essential for your post-natal recovery, to cope with the new requirements linked with baby carrying, and also well-being. Exercise has a crucial role in prevention of further musculoskeletal issues. Each session is 60 mins long, and you will need your baby, a stroller and an exercise mat. The sessions will be in and around Square Ambiorix – and inside during inclement weather, all sessions start at 1.30-2.30pm.  The first of the 5-session courses will start on Wednesday  13th March and thereafter 20th, 27th, 3rd April and 10th April. Please email Nik at  nicolas@lvwphysiobrussels.com  for booking and more information. These will run continuously throughout the year.
