• Heal your body after childbirth so you can enjoy your life!

    I want to transform your life.


    To take you from just making it through your day ...


    to enjoying your life...


    being present with your people...


    doing the things you LOVE!

  • Do you find yourself struggling physically since giving birth?

    Suffering and gritting your teeth just trying to get through your day?


    Dreading having to bend over and lift your child out of the car seat?

    Searching online for help?

    Going to yoga/Pilates/fitness/dance group classes hoping they will make a difference?

    Leaping from one care provider to the next not sure they'll be able to fix your problem?


    Tired of hearing that all you need to do is kegels?



    Feeling frustrated or resigned?


    It's time to harness some stubbornness, curiosity and your commitment to your children, to get engaged with your healing.


    So you can be present for them, yourself and others.

    Education about how your core works, and inquiry into how you use your body every day, will empower you to take small actions that WILL make a difference for you.


    You will gain a new confidence in yourself and your ability to engage with and erase pain in your body.

    Ready to make friends with your body?


    Great! I'm excited to help you.


    I want you to become confident performing your everyday physical activities so you can have fun with your children and loved ones and do the things that you LOVE.


    I know it's possible.


    I can show you how.

  • "I’m physically stronger and more aware of my breath, movements, and body and how they work in concert. I’m less concerned about getting big results quickly through struggle, discomfort and pushing myself. I have a deeper appreciation for taking thing one controlled, comfortable step at a time."
