Steph Neal @pilates.hq is a Train-The-Trainer to Reformer Pilates instructors and her mission is to give teachers permission to get creative with lesson planning ✅
.
With a journey that includes Steph employing a staff of 8 Pilates teachers in a bustling studio in Victoria, Australia, to making the hard decision to close up shop and work solely online, this is definitely an interview NOT to miss 💕
.
In this guest appearance on the Pelvicpreneur Podcast, Teacher Trainer, Steph shares:
.
🗒 her top tips for beating lesson plan block,
🤯 her take on why trying to plan a NEW class every single week is completely unnecessary (and will likely lead to burn out), and
🙌🏻 her professional insights on what to do when you think your clients are getting bored

Give me a double tap if you agree! Starting at the foot and going north from there for pelvic floor dysfunction clients is an pretty sensible strategy 🤓
.
How the foot operates affects not just the ankle, but also the knee, the pelvis, the spine, the shoulders and even the neck 😳
.
Gait is incredibly complex, but walking when done better (and that's the key here) provides a very beneficial workout for the pelvic floor 🚶‍♀️
.
Correct your PFD clients' foot turnout, prescribe them forefoot mobility exercises, innervate their feet to wake them up from years of shoe wearing slumber, and for goodness sake stretch out their calves, because their butt will forever be non-existent otherwise 🍑
.
I could write 5,000-words on how the foot bone is connected to so much more than just the ankle bone, but I only have 2,000 characters here (and well, my Your Pelvic Matters Teacher Training program dives much deeper into this) 🦶🏻
.
But, if I've educated just one pelvic floor specialist out there today about the importance of addressing poor foot mechanics for better pelvic floor function, then my job here is done 🙌🏻
.
Now over to you. Do you take a full-body approach to pelvic floor rehab? Do you explore foot mechanics with PFD clients? What foot exercises are your favourite? 🦵

Pop a comment below and let's geek out together! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

💥PSA: This is NOT ok, ok?

Well said @gusset_grippers!! 🙌🏻

Poorna Bell is quite wrong here, she’s getting her medals muddled with symptoms of health issues which are usually easily treated. I’m more than a little weary of pad manufacturers using gaslighting as a marketing technique. This should not be allowed. @tenawomen your products are good, they really do help women who need them - but your adverts continually imply that pads are the solution for all, and I’m really angry about that now. You could do better. Oh, and women think your adverts are universally shit, I don’t know who you’ve got in your focus groups but they might well be double agents gaslighting rightbackatcha #FeckOff #CommonNotNormal #DontPutUpWithIt #DoYourPelvicFloorExercises #NotTrue #SocialResponsibility #AdvertisingEthics #DryByChristmas #incontinence #kegels #pelvichealth #leaking #womenshealth #physioworks #yourpelvicmatters #pelvicpreneur #pilatesteachertraining #pelvicmafia

I've gained some fun new followers recently and knitted a new scarf, so I thought I'd do an intro post 😬
.
I'm Claire, Pelvicpreneur Podcast host and creator of Your Pelvic Matters Teacher Training program: the full-body approach to pelvic floor rehab 💕
.
I recently celebrated a pelvic floor nerd milestone: 6 years without cueing Kegels. Can I get an Amen?! 🙏
.
My favourite pelvic floor condition = prolapse because of all of the clients I've personally trained, it's the ladies with POP who feel a significant improvement in their symptoms. I think a lot of it is down to the fact that I don't wrap my clients up in cotton wool, I don't blacklist an exercise, and I give them the confidence to move 🤸‍♀️
.
I have a history of 5+ years of foot pain myself (plantar fasciitis survivor here 🙋🏼‍♀️) and I work from a foot first/everything's connected approach when working with clients with pelvic floor dysfunction 🦶🏻
.
I'm originally from Tasmania, Australia, and yes, Tasmanian Devils are real, but a quick Google search will tell you that we almost lost the species very recently had it not been for some incredibly dedicated and talented scientists out there 🧬
.
I've travelled to 40 European countries and pre-Covid, my partner, Mik and I would usually visit Croatia twice a year, and plan various European city breaks. We were actually supposed to fly to Budapest in March ✈️
.
I quit teaching my classes in December 2019 after 15 long years. I do miss the buzz of teaching to a good aerobics track every now and then, but honestly some days were a struggle to keep a fake smile on my face 😳
.
When I'm off the clock, you'll find me hiking, binging a Scandi show on Netflix, reading John Grisham, sampling a real ale, or knitting 🧶
.
Do we have anything in common? Let me know by commenting below! ⬇️

All set up for a coaching call with my #YourPelvicMatters pelvic floor teacher trainers 👩‍💻
.
I love connecting with my people aka pelvic floor nerds via Zoom here 🤓
.
Questions I'm answering on today's call include:
.
1️⃣ "I've been wondering if there's anything specific to consider with peri-to menopausal women?"
.
2️⃣ "I have a client with prolapse and am interested if there's anything thatshould be avoided for prolapse specifically", and
.
3️⃣ "I’ve had a lady email who is week 1 post op for anterior pelvic floor repair & vaginal hysterectomy, is it ok to work with her within my remit, would think the biomechanics approach / alignment work would all be appropriate still?"
.
All in a day's work over here as #Pelvicpreneur, and I have to say the very mention of prolapse gets me a tad excited (it's my favourite pelvic floor condition if I'm allowed to have one...?)
.
If you have major FOMO right now and you’re interested in joining the Your Pelvic Matters community for support helping clients with pelvic floor dysfunction, send me a DM 🙌🏻

Are you procrastinating about creating an online course because it has to be perfect? 🙋🏼‍♀️

Are you busy being busy and frustrated at the sheer volume of admin work your pelvic floor business produces? 😭
.
Would you like to outsource tasks, but uncertain of where to start, and wonder if it's really worth? 🤔
.
Do you often ask yourself "Is it worth training someone up?", only to come back to "I'm sure I could do it better myself?", but yet you're still miserable? 😂 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
Well, listen in to this week's episode I shine a light on 5 tasks you could easily outsource to a Virtual Assistant straightaway, and I'm taking you on a trip down memory lane of all of the VA's and support staff I've ever employed 👩‍💻

Ever wondered if Kegels are worth cueing in certain situations?
.
Say you have a group class of pre/postnatal women you're trying to educate about pelvic floor contractions, and it's the very first time they've ever heard of a Kegel, let alone try and perform one in front of you?
.
As a FitPro, it's impossible to tell if the client(s) are actually doing this exercise correctly, isn't it?
.
Listen in to this week's episode to find out 4 reasons why I ditched cueing Kegels 6+ years ago, saved my sanity in the process AND am able to get pelvic floor client more consistent results with the full-body approach

Popped into @herdy_uk whilst on holiday in The Lakes. Even though I already have the face mask in grey, I HAD to buy the pink one because it’s in my branding colours. What do you think?! 💕
.
Check out my stories for the other sheep-themed purchases I made in store. It’s such a great shop, and I can’t resist buying everything 😬 🐑

Started my day with a group coaching call with my #YourPelvicMatters teacher trainers 💕
.
I love connecting with my tribe over Zoom, and I'm really fortunate to have some super passionate instructors worldwide who just love working in pelvic floor health 🌍
.
I coached one trainer in Ireland through the maze of marketing her online pelvic floor course without using social media (yep, that is possible!) 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
Then, I chatted to another trainer in Canada whose business has actually benefited from Covid 19 financially, because her class sizes have increased, and clients no longer use the excuse of "I can't come this week", so there you go 💰
.
And, then I wrapped things up with an interesting discussion with a trainer in Estonia about repurposing content, because why would you produce something amazing, and not rinse and repeat it, huh? 🤔
.
Hope you're gearing up for a good Friday. What's on your agenda today? Comment below and let me know! ⬇️
