I'm an Orkney-based Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor and Pre and Postnatal Coach on a mission to help others feel great with yoga and exercise - especially soon to be mothers and mummies to be. I am a mum of three fairly large boys that all weighed 10+lb at birth.
After my first pregnancy, I was fairly shocked about several things: 1. only hearing about diastasis recti for the first time and 2. the lack of information available about how to heal the core and pelvic floor properly. After discussing with other mums and personal trainers, it became apartent that we are only ever told to do kegels and this unfortunately is not the way to heal properly.
Training and learning about the importance of breath and how to recruit and engage the deep core muscles (transverse abdominals) inspired me to create this platform so that it would be available for everyone postpartum - whether it be a new mum or if you had your children 15 years ago.
By using these techniques and changes to the way you breathe, it will enable you to create a strong and functional core and pelvic floor, allowing you to live an active lifestyle now and in the future.
A little more about my background: I have a degree in Sport and Exercise Science, a Masters in Nutrition, trained as a Massage Therapist in the USA, as a Hatha yoga teacher in Thailand and I am currently finishing training as a Pre and Postnatal coach. I love the human body and it constantly amazes me what the body is capable of. I became even more in awe of the human body after watching my body change, adapt and recover after each of my pregnancies.
I hope you find value in this training and thank you for stopping by.
