• We want more Physiotherapists to join us and experience the power and self expression possible in running your own business.

     

  • Our main motivation for delivering the workshop is to inspire people to join us.

     

  • Being a Chartered/CORU registered Physiotherapist is a key component in delivering the classes. Therefore the workshop is only open to them.

  • The content of this workshop is high quality. It focuses eleven years of experience from teaching over 1200 classes with over 6000 women through our online booking system.

The Key to the workshop is the online members area which includes the following:

  • Knowledge: Relevant journals, clinical guidelines and book list all in the area of pregnancy and exercise.Websites and social media resources chosen and used regularly by The Bump Room team.
  • Exercises: All the exercises we use in The Bump Room (approx: 250!). This content is delivered in video format and subdivided into positions and props. Positions include: standing, at the wall, four point kneeling, high kneeling, side lying, long sitting etc. Props include gym ball, theraband and half dome. We also cover use of other small props and partner exercises.

VERY IMPORTANT! It is crucial that the workshop attendees familiarise themselves with the online content before the day of the workshop as there is too much content to cover in one day. Access to the members area is for six months from initial registration.

Please note access to Class plans, Instructor package and Instructor Knowledge of the online members area is only available to Instructors of The Bump Room

The Bump Room classes are a safe place for mums-to-be to exercise with instructors who are compassionate, professional and connected.  We aim to reassure, encourage and motivate mums-to-be to stay fit, strong and confident to exercise during pregnancy. The classes are reasonably challenging to empower pregnant women about the positive health benefits of exercise in pregnancy.
