“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful – an endless prospect of magic and wonder”
-Ansel Adams



Recently I had the pleasure of returning to the Home & Family show for my 3rd appearance. Sharing knowledge of how to work the core safely during pregnancy and minimize the effects of the ‘donald duck posture,’ as well as checking for separation in the abdominal wall after pregnancy is something that I love to share with mamas to be, and new moms as a way of working safely & effectively with the core. To view the tv segment, please click here to see the Mothers Into Living Fit youTube channel.



Wanna learn how I got back in shape post baby? Check out the interview I just did for The Fit Mom Summit with Katya Meyers. Click here to learn more. Katya is a very inspirational Mom, triathlete and entrepreneur. What a joy to work with Moms who love to empower Moms.


Recently the amazing Katee Grace, professional photographer, captured some beautiful moments in class which convey the spirit of Mothers Into Living Fit. Classes are a blend of mediation, visualization, Yoga, dance, singing (in baby classes), joy and love. I have spent many years studying many different formats to create a hybrid workout to empower moms. Please message me at to attend classes in LA as my guest.  For more info on Katee, check out her site
