I can’t get enough!
There have been many times I’ve seen an podcast title and I think it won’t be interesting...only a few minute into the interview I am proven wrong! Great content!
As someone who suffered pelvic floor pain for years before finding help with a phisio and hypopressive exercise, the experience enlivened a passion to educate and empower women in their pelvic health.
I’m starting now as a personal trainer and love to have my passion awakened by listening to other professionals!
My goal to peruse physical therapy school was put on hold by the pelvic birth injury. Now I’m making plans again, with more vigor this time. Thanks for being cheerleaders to my vision in a way that you are not aware!
This podcast is my happy place!
Love this podcast! Not too dense for a layperson, very interesting and helpful. I'm a prenatal yoga teacher and this has given me excellent information to use and work with.
