A bit about what this course is about:

Many trainers have approached me in the past couple of years, either wanting to know how to help their clients who have gotten pregnant, or disappointed with the content of certification courses that they have completed.

They feel that they didn't get anything concrete and workable, that it was outdated or too conservative.

Some are just totally confused and overwhelmed by the amount of information out there.

Most want to have a baby themselves one day and want to know what will be best for them during this time.

We've learnt a lot about the function and structure of the core in the last few decades. The truth is, we still don't have all the answers, but the guidelines thrown around are not always up-to-date with the research that is moving fast. 

For the most part, the debate on what to do during pregnancy and postpartum is reduced to "only walk and do pre-natal yoga" or "you can do EVERYTHING you did before" - for most women, the truth is often somewhere in the middle, but it is ALWAYS highly individualized.

This is an exciting time to be a part of this growing industry, and there is a HUGE need for GREAT pre- and post-natal trainers in this country. 

There are too many trainers that don't know what to do, and give terrible advice, ruining women's bodies.

​And there are just as many trainers that are far too conservative, keeping women from doing anything that will get them results.

If you would like to learn 
- about the grey area
- how to assess postpartum issues
- design excellent programmes that address the needs of the INDIVIDUAL,
- how to make women STRONGER, SAFELY
- how to work around (and maybe even improve) pelvic floor issues
- how to heal diastasis recti
- to design realistic, enjoyable, challenging workouts for postpartum women
- a holistic approach that includes not just fitness, but breathing, alignment and psychology...

...then this course is for you!
