    How to get started

  • I help you connect to your body with exercise and body awareness


    So you can move better, feel strong and do the physical stuff you love, WITHOUT constant injuries or frustrations like leaking, back pain, diastasis etc.


    I help you stop feeling like your body is broken and help you resolve constant tightness or pain in your hips, back, pelvic floor, feet, abs, and butt without foam rolling for hours every day.


    You can book me for one on one coaching, a foot assessment or join the group classes I lead every week.


    I've outlined them below.


    None seem right for you?


    Not a mom but think I can help you? Everyone benefits from this type of training.


    Let’s talk anyways and see if we can figure something out.

  • Get Your Life Back Package

    One to one personalized coaching

    You feel frustrated because you want to be active but every time you do a workout at the gym, or a hike or mountain bike your hips/back/pelvic floor craps out on you.


    Your child is a bit older, so you have some time and energy but your body keeps stopping you from doing the fun things you want to do.

    broken image

    You want to run/hike/bike/ski and/or participate in dance, martial arts or fitness classes but it feels like your body is working against you.


    You’re scared you’ll hurt yourself and you're secretly worried that this might be it, that this is how you are gonna feel for the rest of your life.


    It feels like you have to stretch and foam roll every day just to feel OK and do the daily activities of your life.


    You’re tired of not being able to do what you want, dealing with a body that doesn’t quite work right and not knowing what to do about it.


    You wish someone could just fix your body, wave a magic wand and make it work properly again.


    But you know it doesn’t really work that way.


    You wish you knew exactly what would get you stronger without causing more issues.


    Where do you even start?


    You’ve tried lots of things (gym, physio, chiropractor, massage) but you’re only getting temporary fixes.


    You feel fragile.


    You want to get your abs and butt strong, but all the ab and butt exercises you do don’t seem to even work those areas.


    You’re ready to prioritize your body, put the work in and ask for help.

    Basically at the end of the day you want to:

    • Start making lasting change in your body, instead of just stretching all the time.
    • Feel strong so you can jump and run and hike for days if you want to.
    • Get expert input so you can focus your time on work that makes the difference.
    • Make it through your day without having your body stop you from doing what you want.
    • Start to feel like you’re body is working for you, instead of against you.

    If this sounds like you, I can help.


    Your Get Your Life Back Package includes...

    Brain body freewrite

    To make sure we get very clear on the challenges that you are facing, what you want to achieve and what is getting in your way I’m going to have you start with this Body brain free write.


    It’s going to help expose anything that might stop you from following through with doing the work. Things like ways of thinking, support you need, types of exercises that work for you etc.


    So I can create plan that you will actually do. Cause a plan is no good if you don’t follow through.

    Movement and Exercise Session:

    This is a 1 hour private video call where we are going see how your body is moving now and, and try out different exercises to see what works best with your body to teach it to move in a more supportive way.


    I know what needs to happen but there are many ways to get there, we will make sure we find something that works for your body right now. Cause there is nothing worse than being given exercises that don't seem like they are working.


    At the end of this session you will have a 3-5 exercises that you can use to start retraining your body to support you better.


    You can use these movements before a workout to remind your body how you want it to work and after a workout to make sure it is reset to a more optimal balance as you engage with daily life. These are exercises that are designed make your body feel good.

    Your personalized toolkit:


    This PDF is designed to keep you on track… It contains links to videos of you doing each exercise with me coaching you through them, notes on what to pay attention to as you do them and why you are doing that thing.


    You know how you think you can remember it in the session but then can't remember how to do it the next day? This PDF makes it so that doesn't happen.

    Support line:

    I can't do the exercises for you but I am available for your questions via text or voice messages. This is also helpful if you are struggling to actually prioritize doing the exercises, you can use me as an accountability partner or to help you figure out other ways to actually do the exercises.

    Check your form follow up session:


    1/2 hr zoom call 5-15 days after the 1 hour session.


    It helps so much to get someone else's eyes on your body. So often we slip into our old ways of moving, compensating and not doing it correctly to achieve what we want. That does not help us.


    In this session we will see how everything is feeling, check your execution, and progress or substitute other exercises as needed.


    This is great to do sooner than later. I recommend a week later but I also know that sometimes it takes some work to get into the routine of doing those exercises so once you have been doing them then book this session.


    To make progress you need to the exercises as intended with right focus and you need to keep making it harder at a good pace. This is a space to assess that and see if you are ready for something harder.


    This is a starter package. How much progress you make is very personal. For some it will be all they need and for others it is just the beginning.


    Once you have completed this package I will share the private link to book 1 hr Move it Forward sessions with me to continue progressing at your own pace.

  • Foot assessment and drills for better foot function

    One to one personalized coaching


    You have persistent or recurring issues with your hips, knees or feet and wonder if your feet could be part of the issue or maybe THE issue.

    broken image

    You are fine with putting time and energy into your body but all the drills and strengthening and releasing you are doing doesn't seem to be making much of a difference. And you wonder if you might be missing part of the puzzle.


    Maybe you have already done some work with your feet and you've seen some improvement but think there must be more than towel scrunches and short foot exercises.


    It feels like you can activate and find support in your feet when you actively think about it but when you are walking or not thinking about it you just go right back to your usual stiff or collapsed feet.

    Basically you want to:

    • Try something new that creates change in your feet without you thinking about it.
    • Do foot work that transfers into daily life like walking.
    • Improve the function of your hips, knees, feet and pelvic floor (yes the feet can have a huge impact)

    If this sounds like you, I'd love to help.


    Let's assess your feet and pick some drills that will help your feet and body move better.


    A foot assessment session includes

    History of your feet and lower body.

    Before our session I will get you to recall any injuries, issues or weird things that may have happened with your feet, knees or hips over your life. So often the clues we need to start unravelling compensation patterns are in our personal history.


    You will get a google doc with questions designed to uncover relevant information that can give us a head start to figuring out what you need to work on. You will fill this in for me at least 24 hr before we meet.

    Foot assessment and foot movement drills (pronation and supination)


    This is a 1 1/2 hour private video call. During the call we will assess your feet, how you balance your weight over top of them and how they move in as you walk and move the rest of your body. We may also look at how your hips are moving or your body rotation.


    Based on what I see and you feel, I'll guide you through some drills to find you more support through your feet and to work on getting more of the movement that you are missing right now.


    It is quite common to feel a difference in foot support and movement all the way up into the hip and pelvic floor within the session.


    At the end of this session you will have a few drills that you can continue to work with to get more movement and support though your foot and into your leg and pelvis as well.


    Your personalized toolkit:


    This document contains links to videos of you doing each exercise with me coaching you through them, notes on what to pay attention to as you do them and why you are doing that thing.


    You know how you think you can remember it in the session but then can't remember how to do it the next day? This toolkit makes it so you have something to refer to.

    Support line:

    I'm happy to answer follow up questions via email or text. I can't coach you through a whole session (just book a session with me) but I love to hear from you and support you.
