“I absolutely LOVE the PCES course. I cannot even describe how much I’ve taken out of it. Sarah is such an amazing, gifted and passionate teacher.
She does an amazing job in explaining the complexities and interconnections of the different systems in the body and can break them down in a very understandable way. On top of that, we learn so many efficient, feasible and fantastic exercises.
I am coming from a Pilates background and I can add all the knowledge I learn not only to my postpartum clientele but to all my regular clients as well … who doesn’t have back, shoulder or neck issues? With the course, I deepened my anatomical and functional knowledge of how everything works together, and I sharpened my eyes to the subtleties in movement patterns so that I can tackle the symptoms from the origins. I get such great feedback from my clients too. I am so happy I’ve signed up for the course and would highly recommend it to everybody who wants to understand movement and the functioning of the body better. Thanks Sarah for all your dedicated and passionate work!” – Barbara
Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist
This course is not just focused on postpartum timelines, limitations and special considerations, you will learn the exact corrective exercises needed to progress a postpartum client with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (leaks, tightness, and prolapse), Diastasis Recti, SI Joint Pain, and Low Back Pain back into high-intensity exercise.
What does this program offer Personal Trainers, Pilates Instructions, Yoga Teachers and other Wellness Professionals?
It bridges the gap between training and rehab. This course will give you a deeper understanding behind the common postpartum dysfunctions and the best corrective exercises to help. You will gain confidence in your programming that you are making the best choices in the face of difficult issues.
On top of this, you’ll take away hundreds of exercise progressions, regressions, and variations to help fit any client at any level. This course is not just theory, it’s also a great deal of practical application. You will become a gate keeper of knowledge and a trusted advisor and resource for your clients, knowing where and when to refer them to maximize recovery, while still working to improve things on your end.
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.

What does this program offer Physical Therapist, Chiropractors, and other healthcare professionals?
You will learn the best corrective exercises that go way beyond clams, bridges and planks to use for improving alignment, strength and finding the source of the problem.
On top of that, you will gain a working knowledge of the small tweaks needed to make each individual exercise more effective. The significant number of case studies, progressions and regressions will leave you confident in your exercise prescription for any level client, from beginner to advanced athlete. Dr. Sarah also pulls from a lot of different perspectives, many tools in the toolbox so to speak, so you’ll get a wide range of approaches and develop a great appreciation for the big picture and whole body holistic approach.
What makes this program unique?
Leave with the why! This course explains why a woman only three months postpartum can run without consequence while another woman ten months postpartum gets prolapse from lifting a stroller wrong. You will learn why SI Joint pain happens. Why a diastasis heals quickly for some and not for others and what you can do about it.
The goal is for you to take away the rhyme and reason behind it all. To truly understand the cause.
Only with a deep understanding of the why can you learn how to make women invincible. Every woman is different, and without the why it’s impossible to adapt. You’re just left with often out of date, blanket recommendations that are nonspecific to the client in front of you. (This is especially true for prolapse and lifting.)
Through this course, you will be prepared to assess and adapt. You’ll get women with prolapse running and maxing out on lifts. You’ll learn fast effective exercises for addressing a diastasis. You’ll get quick tips to immediately relieve an achy back, but more importantly, you’ll learn why it was achy in the first place, so it will never happen again.
No more band-aids! No more piecing things together to try and make them work. You’ll be helping women from the inside out to build an unstoppable body that can handle anything they want to throw at it.
“As a Physical Therapist and personal trainer, I can tell you that Sarah has created THE BEST training program for women. Hands down! After I had my baby I thought getting back into shape would be easy, especially given my professional background. Between taking care of my baby and running my business, I had no time to workout and I let my body get weak.
I soon developed prolapse and a diastasis. I immediately went into complete panic mode and turned to Sarah for help! Her knowledge alone is mind blowing. Couple that with her passion for helping women and her compassion for what we are going through and it’s simply more than anyone could ask for in a therapist.
Actually, that’s not true. We should all strive to be like Sarah. Her programs work! I recommend my OWN patients invest in Sarah’s programs because her work is so tailored, specific and easy to follow.
Before Sarah, I never thought I had time to work on myself, then all of a sudden I was MAKING time because I was seeing results. Take the plunge, you deserve it.”
-Jill Zimmerman, DPT, Owner of Perfectly Fit Wellness

I found Sarah a few years ago and what sold me 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 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!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions
23 hours of course material
Yes! If you’re a Trainer, Pilates instructor, or other wellness provider, you will need to check with your accrediting body to find out if they allow outside courses but Dr. Sarah’s courses have been widely accepted by most accrediting bodies in the past without any issue. At the end of the course, you’ll be given a course completion certificate and course outline to use for submission. Please check with your provider to see if you’ll need any additional information to gain CEU credit.
If you’re a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor or other Healthcare Provider, you’ll need to check with your state. Some states allow any courses that provide benefit to count as credit and some don’t. Each state is different, so please check with yours. At the end of the course, you’ll be given a course completion certificate and course outline to use for your records.
Set aside 1-3hrs for viewing content each week, plus 10-20min for reading research studies and time to practice and apply everything new you’re learning.
Yes! This course focuses on correcting dysfunctional movement patterns caused by pregnancy. That doesn’t matter if the woman is 6months or 16 years postpartum. The approach will still work!
No need to worry! This course is self-paced, so you can start and stop as needed. You’ll have lifetime access to the course so you can review the material as much as needed. You will, however, need to submit your quiz by December 31st, 2018 for credit during 2018.
Yes, you will have lifetime access to the course, including additions and updates.
No need to stress! You’ll get a copy of the quiz at the start of the course so you can keep the questions in mind as you go through. Then you’ll have 3 attempts for a passing score of at least 75%. If it’s just not working for you after that, we can talk about tutoring. The main goal is for you to understand this information to apply it, not stress over a test.
I’m all for learning, but this course is really geared toward instructors. We talk advanced concepts. One of the online courses for non-wellness professions might be a better fit.
The course is video based and on a streaming platform that doesn’t allow for video download. You can, however, download all the powerpoint presentations and research studies for each week. You will have lifetime access, so feel free to come back and review any videos you need at any time.
Yes! Monthly payment plans are available for your convenience.
I think you’ll be so blown away by the material that won’t be an issue, but if it’s not a fit, it’s not a fit. I’ll happily give you a full refund. I stand behind this course as being exceptional!
The course will start January 22nd and then another course start date will be in late spring.
I know, I know, you want all the info right now, but breaking it down into small digestible chunks means there is a better chance you’ll remember the info. This way, you get to learn and then apply, then learn some more. Both the full support and self-study group will start on January the 22nd.
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 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.
