Perinatal Yoga & Exercise
I love helping women inhabit their bodies fully. It's a huge feat to open so wide to give birth, and as much attention should go into the closing and healing. Most of the time there's a 6 week postnatal checkup where you're given the green light for exercise and sex, but most of the time women don't feel the same, don't feel up to it, or are still in their healing process! As a yoga teacher and passionate pelvic floor health advocate, I taught myself how to heal and restore my core, going from a 5 finger width separation called diastasis recti to a completely functional and healed core. The core contains the diaphragm, the transverse abdominus, the rectus abdominus and the pelvic floor, as well as support from the large and thick back muscles, which creates a sphere of musculature that supports the abdominal organs. To have a properly functioning core, all of these structures need to be supple, stable and strong. Kegels are NOT the answer! Utilizing yoga asanas as well as corrective exercises, I teach small groups and individuals how to screen for imbalances and diastasis recti and how to heal and create dynamic strength and balance again. In my restorative classes and sessions we also integrate and discuss the subtle energetic aspects of healing the core, awakening sensuality and the truth about sex after giving birth, approaching fitness in a holistic and realistic way.

Radiant Core Pelvic Floor Training- 6 class series
Through a series of stretches and corrective exercises, this class will help you gain awareness and muscular control of your pelvic floor, while strengthening, balancing and relaxing muscular tension in the many complex supporting muscles to build a core that is strong yet resilient, so you can go about your life with confidence and ease.
A balanced, supple but strong pelvic floor & core can relieve lower back pain, incontinence, prolapse, low libido, disconnection with your sensual center, patterns of muscle tension and incorrect posture as well as increase feelings of confidence, bodily strength and endurance, the ability to take a deep, relaxing breath, and your sense of embodiment and radiance!
These classes flow like a yoga class, weaving in exercises with traditional asanas as well as free-form unwinding feminine movement and myofascial release techniques.
