Is that too forward?
Look, as a Women’s Health Physical Therapist and a mom, I have seen and heard just about everything when it comes to the female body. And I’ve become kind of obsessed.
I love educating women and young girls about their amazing bodies! Some of the best moments of my career have been seeing the looks of relief on the faces of my preteen clients or having those “lightbulb going off” moments with pregnant, postnatal, and menopausal women. Those moments where everything just clicks and I know the trajectory of their path is forever changed.
I teach you to physically strengthen your body, at whatever stage it’s in: keeping your core and pelvic floor intact during pregnancy (or restoring it after), teaching you how not to get out of bed (yes, that’s a thing!), and why you simply can not jump back into exercise after having a baby just because your doctor gives you the all-clear.
Exercise for women is about so much more than just the physical movement. I also help you understand the less-glamorous mechanics that are vital to creating a strong body that you love and feel empowered in.

"Carrie's class was so helpful and helped to reduce my DRA from 6.5 cm and deep to 4 cm and shallow. Thanks to her I can enjoy better body mechanics. As an MD, I was not aware of exercises to do, but I will recommend it to friends and patients."
"Don’t wait to take this class! The knowledge I gained, the exercises that we did, and learning to incorporate “nutritious movements” into my day allowed me to start strengthening my core.Every women, pregnant or not, should learn these important techniques to practice healthy exercise and movement."
"The online class option was great for me. After week one of just doing core breath exercises, I could already see and feel results! I couldn’t believe how quickly these simple exercises were changing my mid-section. The exercises have truly helped me shrink my belly and fit back into my pre-pregnancy jeans!"
"Even though I am a fitness professional myself and have taken various training's and certifications, I have learned so much from Carrie’s program. I feel more confident on how to maintain my “house” and how to design safe and effective programs for my own clients. Her program was very easy to understand and it definitely connected all of the dots from what I had previously been taught on abdominal and core training. Her approach is so refreshing and encouraging and I appreciated her honesty."
"It was great to have a series of exercises to do safely that will help with the pregnancy and delivery, but also the content and discussions I found very helpful, especially being a first time mom. This is a great concept with the combination of exercise and information and I thought it was terrific."
"I've been doing really well after this pregnancy--probably the best I've ever been post-partum. I think a lot of it has to do with how in shape I was this time around... I think that the strategies that you talked about regarding labor really helped me. I didn't hardly tear this time, and feel that I pushed correctly for the first time. And I was bouncing around feeling great only days after. I think it really makes a difference to understand your body and how it works."
"Every new mom should know about Carrie’s class! After having my baby, I tried jogging and ended up frustrated and in pain. After completing Carrie’s postnatal class, I feel stronger and more confident to start exercising now that my core is awake! Carrie was personal and professional and did an excellent job of tailoring her program to help me reach my goals."
"I found this class to be extremely insightful, fun and funny and a tremendous resource for all the questions that come up during pregnancy. I found it to be a really comfortable atmosphere in terms of feeling OK to ask "those" questions. I will say as helpful as it was, Carrie's knowledge, humor and demeanor is what made the class what it was. I would highly recommend the class to ALL soon to be mothers, even if it's their 4th time around. It is that profound."
"Thank you for bringing your knowledge and class out here to us! I'm so grateful that we were able to run the class (Postnatal Pilates). I feel so much better after just six weeks and I really feel like I can keep the momentum going. Your teaching style and way of explaining not only how to do each exercise, but the why, was so awesome. I am so much more aware of my form and confident I can avoid future injury."
