Embracing a Holistic Approach in Postnatal Personal Training Classes
In the current postpartum "bounceback culture," women
often face pressure to quickly return to intense physical
activities after childbirth. This rush can jeopardise their
health by applying unnecessary stress to the still-recovering
pelvic connective tissues, potentially causing more harm than
good. The focus should shift from this quick recovery mindset
to a holistic view, prioritising long-term health and wellbeing.
Additionally, many women are recommended to regularly perform kegel exercises without proper understanding or guidance.
This lack of instruction complicates integrating kegels into daily routines. In the absence of correct breathing techniques or when the pelvic floor is overly tight, kegels may not only be ineffective but could also aggravate specific pelvic issues.
Embracing Holistic Healing: The Story of Simone Muller
Simone Muller, the founder of re-centre and a postpartum personal trainer, deeply understands the postpartum challenges many women face. Her journey towards finding effective postnatal solutions led her to Hypopressives after the birth of her first child. Despite her extensive experience in teaching postnatal Pilates, she felt the outcomes related to Diastasis Recti, incontinence, and prolapse issues weren't enough. Hypopressives emerged as a transformative tool, promising not only remarkable results but also ensuring safety and adaptability for postpartum women.
Unlocking the Potential of Hypopressives
Hypopressives, a special blend of breathing and posture management, work seamlessly with the body's internal framework. It aims to decrease intra-abdominal pressure while toning core muscles, especially the pelvic floor and transversus abdominis, from the inside. Resulting in enhanced pelvic floor performance, decreased waist circumference, and increased support for internal organs. This comprehensive approach leads to improved posture and optimal pelvic health, demonstrating the transformative power of Hypopressives in facilitating a more rounded and effective postnatal recovery.
Ideal Timing and Considerations for A Postnatal Regimen
Simone Muller suggests starting Hypopressives in the later part of the postpartum period, ideally around six weeks after natural births. However, a longer waiting period of at least three months is recommended for those who have had surgical procedures like caesarean sections. Prior to beginning any postnatal personal trainer classes, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider and undergo a pelvic floor assessment. These steps are necessary to ensure a personalised and safe approach to each woman's postnatal recovery journey.
Observing the Power of Hypopressives
Simone Muller's journey, together with the major improvements seen in her clients, confirms the effectiveness of Hypopressives in restoring the postnatal pelvic floor. Having mentored over 400 women via her re-centre platform, as a postnatal personal trainer in London, Simone has witnessed the transformative potential of this comprehensive method. Hypopressives go beyond addressing physical concerns such as Diastasis Recti, , and prolapse. They also enhance strength, improve functionality, and boost overall wellbeing, making them an empowering choice for postpartum recovery.
The first step is mastering the Apnea technique. Simone will be on
Zoom with you every week - think of it as your personal guided
tour through all the technique's steps, with feedback thrown
in to ensure you're on the right path. And don't worry if it
takes some time to get it right. Some clients, especially
those with a bit more tightness in their ribs and thoracic
spine, might need a little extra patience.
And here's the golden rule - for impactful change, Simone recommends at least three 15 to 20-minute workouts per week. Consistency is your best friend on this journey towards wellness.

What our members say
The best post-partum class, it really helped with my recovery. Simone is a great teacher, so knowledgeable and kind. I recommend her classes to all my friends who had a baby. Thank you Simone!
I’ve only been doing Simone’s classes for a short time but have noticed huge improvements in my core strength and posture. Great value and high quality recordings combined with live classes make it really easy to fit into your life. Highly recommended.
I cannot say enough good things about Simone’s classes - they have been really transformative for me. Her explanation of what are often unusual and specific techniques is so good that you never feel lost, and she has a wonderful way of connecting with the class on a really human level, as well as being a real expert in her field. Her classes are challenging, mindful, and have helped amazingly with my pelvic floor issues - I started seeing results after only 4 weeks of classes! Highly recommend.
Simone's classes are amazing. She combines her skills in pilates, yoga and hypopressives to provide a very holistic practice. I've seen a great improvement in my postnatal body thanks to her classes. I would recommend her to any woman who has had a baby.
I love Simone’s Low Pressure Fitness classes, they have helped with my prolapse symptoms and are something I turn to daily if I’m having a hard day. Simone is a great communicator and teacher, she explains everything very clearly and I have no trouble participating in the class even over zoom.
Simone and re-centre were a saviour for me over lockdown. A great chance to just be in my body and switch on to what I was feeling. As a pelvic health physio I can highly recommend Simone and her method as a great form of rehab for many postnatal conditions.
I got to know about Low Pressure Fitness through Simone, in a workshop that I'm so lucky I attended. It was about 2 months after giving birth and I felt really weak, thinking that I could never get back to my strength before the pregnancy. Simone's help completely changed my perspective and with her brilliant classes slowly I got back my confidence and strength. I was worried that these exercises will be tricky with online classes, but she has been great in giving clear instructions and adjusting poses for everyone based on their needs. I don't know how she does it but she even gives individual feedback and helps you correct your pose in a group online class. Thanks Simone!
Simone's classes and on-demand videos are excellent. She's such a good teacher, always learning new things herself to expand her teaching horizons. Would most definitely recommend to anyone with a postpartum body regardless how long it's been since you gave birth.
Simone is a great teacher, I highly recommend her work. Her online platform is well curated and excellent value and she gracefully manages to teach & give individual attention in her live Zoom classes.
I attend re-centre classes with Simone weekly and have noticed a huge improvement in my core strength and tone. Simone has a thoughtful and inclusive approach to her classes, they vary which means I stay focused and the relaxation time at the end is much needed in the life of a busy mum!
Simone is a brilliant teacher, she takes the time to check in with her students and work through exercises to fit individual injuries. She’s also really knowledgeable and supportive for post natal bodies. Doing hypopressors are a total life changer and I love the way this is incorporated into Pilates and stretching.
