Oh motherhood, it’s been a journey, that’s for sure but what I’ve experienced over the last 14 (plus!) years has turned into something amazing. It’s what I now talk about and teach the women that I meet in my online communities and in my studio.

Below I’ve listed just a few things I learned about my experience as a solo mother of 3, as a practitioner in the birth and postpartum world, and as a sister in a tribe of amazing women.

Key Messages:

  • Women aren’t receiving the necessary information about rehabilitating physically and emotionally after birth.
  • Strengthening your abdominals and pelvic floor after birth or surgery is imperative
  • It’s not just your physical body that needs support after birth, your energetic and emotional body needs attention too.
  • Your Pelvis, Your Power: The Container for your confidence, finances, and success.
  • Regular mindfulness practices, movement, and sister connection time are key to feeling grounded, inspired, and whole.
  • Pregnancy, birth, and surgery can affect your energetic body.

I’ve taken all of the above and created a Methode to support women and help them feel whole, connected, and balanced.

My methode and mission are to guide women back to their whole, strong self.  I do that by offering Private Pilates sessions (the only way to effectively reconnect to and strengthen your abdominals deeply) specializing in pelvic floor strengthening, Flower Essence Therapy to support physical and emotional imbalances, a supportive community, and by recommending consistent mindfulness practices, celebrations, and fun.

All of these are essential to feeling strong, inspired and whole.

 

Is this for you?

This Methode is for Yoga and Pilates Instructors, Doulas, Midwives, and Women’s Health Professionals who are looking to offer further care for their postpartum patients. It’s also for women who have a passion for supporting postpartum women and are looking for a new, fulfilling career path.
