Time: 6:30 pm

Place: Our clinic – 221 E. Main Street Huntington, NY 11743

The postpartum period is a beautiful rollercoaster. Often, we are unsure which way is up and which is down. No matter what you may be feeling, finding ways to begin to recover your body can help you feel better physically, emotionally and will provide a sense of confidence as you continue to navigate motherhood! But we may ask ourselves: how do we do this correctly? Not all exercise is created equal when it comes to healing after pregnancy and it can be overwhelming figuring out where to begin. A well-rounded exercise program is dependent on many factors and requires a deep look into your goals, abilities, and health.

Come learn the most effective exercises you can do to get yourself feeling better in a safe way and while avoiding the very common issues we see as pelvic floor physical therapists.

You will learn:

  • Common body changes that occur during pregnancy- signs to look out for to identify whether what you are experiencing in “normal” and when you should consult with your OB or PT
  • How to avoid potential dysfunction postpartum including sciatica, lower back pain, hip pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, organ prolapse and diastasis recti
  • Safe and effective exercises and stretches to improve strength and mobility
  • Warning signs for pain or dysfunction during exercise and return to movement
  • How to lift and handle your baby as he/she grows
  • 7 Most Common Mistakes People Make Post-baby

*Babies/toddlers are welcome!!

**You could have had your baby 10 years ago! — Please still come if you want help 

Saturday Yoga with Pam Tirrito

This class will help you become less stiff and awkward with more easeful and efficient movement which will apply to your daily life. Special attention will be placed on alignment, breath, and awareness of the body while building strength and flexibility. Classes are taught with consideration of individual needs allowing the student to embrace yoga with curiosity and without judgment.

Do you ever wish you could find out more about what’s going on with your back, neck/ shoulder, or knee pain before you commit to any treatment?

Do you ever wish you knew more about the WHY-

  • Why it happened
  • Why it’s happening to me
  • Why it returns

And most importantly learn the valuable information and discover things you can do about it?


We cover a wide variety of issues from back pain to pelvic floor, to core elements of Pilates, or combating sports injuries. We have guest speakers including our very own doctors of physical therapy and specialists in the field.

“I cannot say enough positive things about Universus Physical Therapy! I came to Universus because I was looking for an alternative approach to the traditional physical therapy I have received over the years for a recurring injury. The therapists provide one-on-one care. Shaden, Carly, and Jen not only treated my injury, but have been working on its root causes. As a result, I feel better than I have in years! My aches and pains are gone, and I feel more connected to my body. I have recently started acupuncture with Jason, which has further improved my well being. Thanks to Sophia, scheduling appointments is a breeze! If you are new to physical therapy or are tired of the same old treatments, visit Universus. You will not be disappointed!”
