Please tell us a little about yourself, your business and your HCR journey:
As a qualified Reformer and Mat Pilates instructor, and fitness instructor, I have been teaching exercise to clients for 15+ years. I am also a qualified Neuromuscular & Physical therapist as well as a sports massage therapist, and have experience treating all sorts of muscular issues. Having previously worked in the stressful corporate sector, I realized my calling was actually in helping people recover from injuries and I set up MyBodyworks Fitness & Muscle Therapy.
Pregnancy and post-Natal wellbeing have always been close to my heart – having given pregnancy pilates classes since 2012. However it was after my own pregnancy and the birth of my daughter that my interest to support and help other women through such issues as diastasis recti, incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse – really grew. I studied Advanced Pre- and Post-Natal courses with Burrell Education and elsewhere and the natural progression was to become a Holistic Core Restore Coach.
Being a HCR coach really allows me the opportunity to bring all aspects of my training, my professional experience and my personal experience of childbirth and healing afterwards, together, to assist other women. My personal experience is that there are not enough women’s health services in Cork for new moms. I want to bring Holistic Core Restore to the women of Cork. As it is a holistic whole body training, it empowers women to heal themselves and their core – especially post-natally.
