Online Pelvic Floor CEU Class
3hr Course for Wellness Professionals
Who needs pelvic floor training?
From bodybuilders, yoga students and postpartum women to the aging client, everyone benefits from pelvic floor training.
Strengthening the pelvic floor is more than just kegels and incontinence; it’s also essential for low back and hip stability.
Then strengthen your pelvic floor.
Does your client have to run to the restroom before their workout or before they perform heavy lifts, dynamic yoga positions or plyometrics? Do they need regular adjustments to put their pelvis back inline? Does their back ache after standing or travel? Then you know your client needs pelvic floor training without even having to ask.
Not only will pelvic floor training enhance your client’s overall mental and physical functioning, but a strong pelvic floor will also prevent low back, hip and SI joint pain. Protect your client from future injury by correctly strengthening their pelvic floor. The next time they take a 5 hour plane flight, burst out into laughter or swing a golf club without worry, they will be incredibly grateful for your expert training! Pelvic floor work needs to be a part of every functional exercise program, so let’s start training it today.

Short Clip Taken From Course
I found Sarah a few years ago after receiving an email to sign up for an instructor Pelvic floor workshop. What sold me with this email is that I could tell she was different than most other people on the web touting fixes for various female issues. She wasn’t selling gimmicks or quick fixes, she was the real deal, an educator who truly cares about the women who need help.I am a fitness instructor with over 15 years of experience. I have owned my own studio for 10 years and I have now had Sarah out to my studio to give lectures on several occasions – some for instructors and others for students and she never disappoints. I happen to be lucky enough to be on the East Coast and have also been able to see her privately. She is smart, caring and most importantly, THE REAL DEAL…. she knows her stuff!I have always been the fitness person who asks why, always wanting to know more information and never accepting things just because. I was willing to do the work to learn more and I am so grateful that I came across her path because I have learned so much about my body and am a better trainer because of her influence. Thank you Sarah!!!!

What people are saying about Sarah’s Pelvic Floor CEU class.
Sarah is very organized and informative. Her research is thoroughly and critically examined. I appreciated her corrective exercises and learned much about my own body. Her approach to exercise and movement will change the industry.
Maryellen Gibson, Pilates Instructor, RN
Sarah has incredible knowledge, experience and enthusiasm, as well as a great desire to help others learn to best care for clients.
Alice B. Smith, OT
In Pilates we always cue the pelvic floor, but we don’t talk about how to integrate it with full body dynamic movement. This workshop was extremely helpful in explaining how to do that.
Katie Sovenyhazy, www.PilatesofCharleston.com
Having taught movement for over fifteen years, I am amazed at how much I always learn from Sarah. She is by far my favorite anatomy workshop facilitator. After this workshop specifically, I am breathing in a more full and grounded way and feel more attuned to my pelvic floor and diaphragm.
Katie Ashley, yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, Mentor and Writer at www.KatieAshley.org
I love the Eastern Medicine Philosophy in Sarah’s pelvic floor class and how she shows the interconnections between every part of the body.
Fun, dynamic lessons on how to move your body in safe, smart ways and how to improve your knowledge of the pelvic floor and ability to transfer to clients more efficiently.
Kim Miles, Owner The Mindful Body Pilates Studio www.themindfulbody.com
I really appreciated the hands on demonstrations, which were soundly and effectively presented though research studies and science. I learned a lot!
Caroline H. Brennan
I love Sarah’s clinical study turned practical application approach. She breaks down scientific jargon into client related issues and exercises. Plus her hands on approach effectively cues clients toward quick physical goals.
Sarah Carmical, CPT www.PerfectlyFitCharleston.com
Sarah’s knowledge of the body never ceases to amaze me. She was able to instruct about the pelvic floor in a way that I will be able to translate easily to many of my clients in a personal training setting, enabling them to be more effective in their workouts. Without fundamentals such as this, gross motor patterns are not nearly as effective and may eventually result in injury and imbalances.
Meredith Nelson, Med, ACE, AFAA, TPI, Owner or Prime Time Fitness www.PrimeTimeFit.net
Sarah is very easy to understand. She breaks down difficult concepts into easy to digest parts. Lots of food for thought after her class!
Tia Stanley, Pilates Instructor, CPT www.CenteredTraining.com
Sarah’s Pelvic Floor Class is functional, dynamic and integrates the whole body, truly connecting the pelvic floor, diaphragm and deep core.
