10 benefits of doing hypopressives
You are in the safe hands of Abby & Filippa
Abby discovered Hypopressives after suffering birth injuries that resulted in prolapse, diastasis recti, & incontinence. This healing method had such a profound and transformative effect on her life that she became a Hypopressives Master Trainer and has been teaching this method since 2013.
Filippa is the co-founder of MoonRise, a yoga instructor, doula, and Hypopressives Trainer. Like Abby, Filippa sustained birth injuries that led to prolapse, incontinence , levator ani, and vaginal wideness. She searched far and wide for answers and when she found Hypopressives for the first time, they were groundbreaking.

Making health choices can be hard. Here are answers to questions you might have
The short answer is that you want to get the apnea right along with your alignment. Doing it wrong can create more pressure worsening the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. We avoid this by pairing you with a dedicated practitioner who follows your progress, suggests corrections (digitally) and manually unlocks more practice videos only when you get the basics right.
Hypopressives have been in practice since the 1980s and are the go-to solution for women healing PFD & DR in countries like Canada and Spain. And they are growing in popularity in the UK, throughout other European countries, and the U.S.
Plus, science supports the effectiveness of these exercises.
The science shows that practicing hypopressives improves circulation and fluidity in your body. It also activates the fascia (connective tissue), nerve endings, and muscles too, particularly in your pelvic floor and abdominal cavity.
In addition, these exercises activate the parasympathetic (“rest and digest”) nervous system to create calm & balance in your body. The scientific term for this is homeostasis.
Lastly, you can decide if this program will work for you by reading or listening to the real-life stories from women in our community who’ve healed by using hypopressives.

We recommend you practice Hypopressives every day for 10 to 15 minutes. This is the average length of one video. If you have the time and want to get extra practice, you can repeat the same video twice, or do the next video on the list.
Again, it’s important that you practice in the same order in which you find the videos. And please don’t practice more than 30 minutes a day of these exercises, as this would be too much for the diaphragmatic muscles.
It’s important that you practice on an empty stomach, such as first thing in the morning before you eat breakfast. Or 30 minutes before you go to bed.
The afternoon works too, but make sure you do the exercise at least 1 hour (or more) after you’ve eaten.
At MoonRise we believe everyone is capable of getting better.
Yet, there is no exact timeline of when you can expect results because healing is very individual. Some women notice a significant change after 3 to 6 months. While some may experience that sooner.
We know you are eager to relieve symptoms and achieve better health. But, we’ve seen the best results in women who don’t set expectations or timelines in their mind (yes, this is hard not to do!), but who keeps doing the work no matter what.
Just like life, a stress-free approach to healing, is to take it one breath, one moment, and one day at a time.
Firstly, to experience improvements, it’s crucial you practice hypopressives for 10 to 15 minutes a day, every day. Of course, there will be days you won’t be able to for various reasons – but the objective is consistency, because that’s what makes results possible.
Also, you will need a few things to do these exercises such as a yoga mat (or soft surface), a chair, and a small ball – similar to the size of a tennis ball. Also, extra props such as a blanket or pillow are optional if you’d like some additional comfort or support.
You have unlimited LIFETIME access to the videos of this program. You also have unlimited LIFETIME Access to our LIVE Classes including Q&A time. And yes, you have unlimited access for 1-1 support to ensure you are doing the method right. In short, this program has you covered
If you have done the exercises as intended, communicate your needs with us and still don’t see any improvement after 90 days, we will refund your money back.
Yes, given our personal experience with Hypopressives and the experience of our customers, Hypopressives have proven to be superior to Kegels & safer than surgery.
Let us explain more.
For starters, Kegels only aim to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. And when over-doing them, they create more tension in the pelvic floor. Also, they don’t repair scar tissue or create a lift the way Hypopressives do.
Also, Hypopressives improve circulation and fluidity in the pelvic and abdominal tissues and hydrate the fascia in your pelvic floor, making it more reflexive (i.e. less tense). Kegels can’t do this.
And when it comes to surgery for PFD or DR, hypopressives are much safer, since surgeries come with risks and there is no guarantee the surgery will be effective or that the PFD or DR won’t come back later.
