[PODCAST] Meet the Expert Guests of PFSA
[NEW] Meet the Expert Guests of the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy!
10 years ago I was sitting in my Vancouver apartment watching tennis matches on cable TV and completing my Masters degree.
(And also, avoiding my academic work because the beach was 4 blocks away. COME ON.)
My topic of study? Coaching.
Specifically, coaching pregnant and postpartum people in exercise, core, and pelvic health.
I researched everything I could about pregnancy, diastasis recti, the pelvic floor, and the recovery process of postpartum.
I wanted to know more and more and more.
And for the past 10 years I have coached pregnant and postpartum people, in some capacity, almost every single day.
(The only breaks may have been on the days where I birthed my own babies and thus, was being coached by someone else. Ha.)
Much of what has made me a better coach is being coached by others.
Learning from health professionals who have a different realm of expertise or training, have varying perspectives, various lived experiences, and those who challenge my biases.
Today on the podcast I want to introduce you to 10 coaches who have impacted my work:
1). Ericka Hart: on the concept of intersectionality, as taught by Kimberlé Crenshaw
2). Munira Hudani: on diastasis recti and how the “severity” might not correspond with symptoms
3). Shannon Kane: on how to support your clients in conversations about birth trauma
4). Chrissy King: on understanding why your clients may have fat loss goals
5). Christy Harrison: on the importance of acknowledging thin privilege
6). Aditi Loveridge: how to handle the first session back with a client after pregnancy or infant loss
And more of my faves who you will meet on the show!
Listen in on Episode 180 of the To Birth and Beyond podcast above, or on your favourite pod player.
Ps. This is just a snippet of the full-length interviews with all of these guests, that you’ll have access to when you’re a student of the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy!
PFSA is the ONLY comprehensive certification that helps existing (and aspiring) fitness and health practitioners to support moms and parents in their postnatal recovery.
The PFSA is closing for enrolment this Friday, June 11th at midnight PST.
Over the course of 11 Modules, PFSA will teach you:
– How to effectively work with new and ‘seasoned’ postpartum people in fitness, exercise, and sport coaching from a pelvic health-informed perspective
– Concepts, theories, and strategies for training and treating people with diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic and back pain, and other postpartum health considerations
– How to approach postpartum fitness and wellness through a size-friendly, weight inclusive, and non-diet lens
P.P.S. There are only 6/10 spots remaining in the Group Mentorship track, for access to coaching and accountability to complete your certification in 12 weeks. See you in there?
