Empowering women to rediscover balance, positivity, and joy through pelvic floor awareness and healing.
My first teaching experience, when I was 12 years old, was coaching 4-8 yr old children with special needs. My mother owned a school of gymnastics and that’s where my life’s work began. Many years later, my role as a pelvic floor advocate actually began with my mother, as well. In 2003, Momma was diagnosed with a pelvic floor dysfunction. (More of her story in our video message below and in the CPF Series Ep 3.) What then followed – along my own journey – was more experience, education, and awareness. A year after receiving my yoga certification in 2009, a student of mine tells me she feels like she’s ‘falling apart’. She’d recently lost her husband and now felt her body was manifesting the heaviness of her grief. The diagnosis of pelvic organ prolapse confirmed it. She’s one of the many to practice pelvic floor stability with me through yoga, laughter, and fascia release. My own personal PF story includes pain, tightness, leakage, and shame — the full gamut of physical, sexual, mental, and emotional challenge. Along the way, I’ve continued my education to hone this focus through Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Pelvic Floor Yoga with Leslie Howard, Transcendental Meditation, Laughter Yoga, and The MELT Method with Sue Hitzmann. My approach is a synthesis of Western Science together with Eastern Wisdom. Celebrate the Pelvic Floor was founded in the hopes of sharing all this knowledge with women far and wide. There are too many of us suffering in silence! Let’s take this topic away from taboo, ladies. The time is NOW!
A Message from Momma and Me
Many of you have asked me “Why Celebrate the Pelvic Floor?” Well this person is my “Why.” Meet my Momma, hear her story, and why so many women struggle with pelvic floor wellness.
We offer online education and live events to promote understanding of pelvic floor wellness and to encourage more candid conversation and effective healing through the sharing of stories, practices, techniques, and professional resources.
