Let's lighten up
(these are my current offerings)
Strong As A Mother
Tuesdays and Saturdays at ten am at Plank fitness (16 London road)
Congrats! You are a mom... now it is time to get your body looking and feeling like it belongs to you again. Pilates exercises are proven to target the pelvic floor and for a new mama this benefit is never more vital. Strong As A Mother is designed to help you strengthen your pelvic floor, abdominal and deep postural muscles, and to help you relearn how to access the muscles in your core that will make you feel strong and vibrant. Specific emphasis is placed on improving body mechanics, proper posture and lifting techniques so you can return to your little one feeling strong. Post-natal pilates helps quicken the recovery process, helping to close the diastasis (the separation between the two halves of the rectus abdominus that often happens with pregnancy) and flattening the abs so that you will feel more like your old self... and in time even better! Stacey has worked through her own diastasis repair and postpartum journey and felt that there should be more classes specifically for moms who are in the same boat. Regardless of our birth story we all have our journey back to our own bodies. This class is for postpartum moms of all kinds. If you are a brand new mom and have gotten the thumbs up from your dr, this class is for you. If you had your baby years ago and have yet to reconnect with your body, this class is for you. This will be a mat class with the use of props, so please bring your mat, some water, and your beautiful bod.
6 week elimination diet
An elimination diet is one of the most practical and powerful things you can do for your health. It gives your body an opportunity to reset and you a chance to gain knowledge about how your body works best. It can also give you the information you need to take your health into your own hands.
The actual elimination diet can last for two weeks (or longer) based on what results you are looking for. If you are looking to identify if a certain food creates an allergic reaction, this diet is for you. If you regularly feel bloated, gassy or nauseous this diet will help shed light on why it could be happening. If you suffer from chronic headaches or even migraines, this diet is for you. If you struggle to loose weight or even gain weight, this diet is a great way to get started. Everyone will benefit from this 6 week journey!
By removing the foods that create inflammation in the body, then slowly reintroducing them, your digestive system will show you almost immediately how it is effected. This is how I found out that wheat and dairy cause my asthma to flare up. They are also the reason that I spent my whole young life suffering with sinusitis. Experiencing this diet will totally change the way you look at your health.
My program lasts six weeks. One week to prepare (you absolutely must prepare) two weeks for the actual diet. Week four and five are for reintroducing the foods you removed. Week six is when we look at what we have learned and decide how to move forward. As I said above this diet will be one of the most powerful things you can do to take charge of your health. You will receive three hour long phone conversations where we talk about your plans, your progress, and the practical things that need to be in place for you to succeed. You will also receive two emails a week that will completely guide you from start to finish. The emails will include the full program broken down into digestible easy to follow parts, lots of recipe options, tips on how to fully prepare yourself so you can get the most out of the six weeks, vocal recordings, and much more. I'm very proud of this program, and I'm also very excited about the results it has given me, my clients and my friends.

Light Space MAMA!
The mission of Light Space Mama is to assist mothers and mothers-to-be in creating a sense of lightness while prioritizing joy as they design the rhythms of their family.
This support group for Mamas exists because some days we are thriving and others we are struggling to catch a breath. Motherhood can be massively isolating, and that can feel so heavy. Each week we will come together as group to approach a variety of topics relevant to us Mamas (weight management, time management, meal planning, sex, hair loss, memory loss, pelvic floor issue, relationship issues, etc.) and hopefully we will all leave feeling a little lighter. Coming into the meeting with our hearts and minds wonky and weird, but exiting remembering that true wellness = joy and that we are not alone in our journey.
Such a beautiful thing!
