  • What's different ?

    Shift habits ✅

    Many people find their daily habits 'undo' the work done in a once-a-week session or ocaisional bodywork.

    No weights / kit needed ❌

    We use basic, adaptable kit that can be found around your home to make these changes easy as possible.

    Trauma Informed ✅

    Language and setup will be considered to help everyone feel safe in class.

    No need to be postpartum ❌

    It can be months or years after having baby before joining and getting benefit of classes.

    Whole Body Approach ✅

    That means your emotions too. Living with pelvic issues takes it's toll on the whole of you. This approach involves moving your body better and treating yourself with kindness.

    No sweat ❌

    This isn't a sweaty workout. Starting with deep core foundations and developing into more fluid and dynamic movements.

    "The best thing about these workshops for me has been having the space to slow down and feel into my body. Learning about the way the body works and being able to consider a different way of working with the pelvic floor from doing squeezes has also been a real gift.

    I have been surprised by how making the smallest of movements has had a big impact on the way that my body feels. Let go of all the common things you have been told about the pelvic floor and come to one of Emilie's classes and listen and move more consciously and see what happens."

  • Many people live with leaks and the feeling that they can’t do all the things they’d like to in life.

    It takes people an average of 5 years to get help with pelvic floor issues.
    (that sucks.)

    Some exercises can increase  pressure to your core and pelvic floor.

    Squeezes don't work for everyone.
