Fix Your Foot Pain
Fallen arches. Neuroma. Hammer toes. Bunions. Corns. Foot cramps. Weak ankles. Tingling toes. Heel pain. Plantar fasciitis. The list of common foot problems seems endless. Too often we use insoles and other quick fixes for problems instead of treating their root causes. In this class we’ll get up close and personal with our feet. We’ll talk about some of those root causes for foot pain and do a set of foot exercises that are guaranteed to make your feet happy. You’ll leave with a set of correctives to do daily at home to continue your progress. If you have foot or ankle pain, this class is how you spell relief.

Pelvic Health 101
Pelvic floor dysfunction often sneaks up on us, and it can be hard to talk about. Sometimes we think we just have to live with symptoms, or that they're simply part of life, motherhood, or growing older. I'm here to tell you that this isn't true. You don't have to live with pelvic floor disorder. This class provides a set of corrective exercises that help address common pelvic floor problems, as well as lifestyle and habit changes that can support healthy pelvic floor functioning.
All bodies are welcome. (Men need good pelvic health, too!) Postpartum women can attend as soon as they have clearance from their care provider to begin exercising.

This workshop provides:
- A set of low-impact exercises that support a pregnant mama's growing body.
- Instructions on lifestyle and habit changes that seem small but can make a big difference in keeping you feeling good and strong.
- Recommendations for staying fit and strong during pregnancy and after baby is born.
- Instructions for how to hold your precious baby in a way that won't wreck your back.
