Unlimited no-cost consultations are always offered to all my members so I can be on hand to address your specific needs. Together we will build a plan that supports your goals to maintain and excel in fitness and lifestyle before, during and after pregnancy.


A full circle approach to your well being.

I actually hate the term "method" but I get asked this question all the time.  As a Pre & Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist, Diastasis and Core Consultant, and Holistic Health Coach, I have devoted my career to making the wellness industry a safer, more educated place for birthing bodies. 

Originally a professional modern dancer, I changed course after the pregnancy and birth of my daughter in 2016. Throughout pregnancy, I wanted to maintain my current level of fitness without worry. When it came to postpartum, I wanted to make sure I healed fully and could get back to dancing and the super active lifestyle I loved.

Since then, I've been helping ​people have a healthier relationship with how they move and feel throughout trying to conceive, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting.

That's all to say, my "method" is to focus on YOU!  I don't believe in cookie cutter fitness solutions, especially during pregnancy and parenthood.  My members have unlimited access to me because I want to know about your muscular imbalances, your aches & pain, your goals and DREAMS!  Only then, can we create a workout regime that's going to get you to where you want to be!

“I had several postpartum symptoms that I thought I'd suffer with forever. I had seen doctors, physical therapists, trainers and no one had been able to help. Joanie immediately started solving the puzzle and teaching and empowering me to understand my body and gain control over my life. I can now lift my kids with ease, jump on the trampoline, and hang out upside down in headstands. I'm stronger now, after 2 kids, than I've ever been.”

Lindsay, RI

"I have come to understand for the first time, despite decades of fitness classes and physical therapy exercises , how to get out of back pain using the lower ab and pelvic floor activation as taught by Joanie. What a gift!!"

Shelly, NYC

"I've really enjoyed the platform and corrective exercise has been very helpful to me in building my foundational pelvic floor and core strength and reducing my leaking issues. Now 19 months out from having my daughter I am feeling pretty strong and doing gym workouts, HIIT, biking, skiing, and some running. I'd say I am healed and ready for full on workouts now!"

Caitlin, Providence RI

"Joanie is a goddess in pre/post-natal workouts! She’s a magician and detective when it comes to figuring out and solving aches and pains and stops at nothing to make sure your body starts feeling better and moving correctly. I can’t recommend Joanie enough for ALL of your aches and pains!!"

Hope, New York NY
