What we chat about in the episode

  • Courtney shares her journey as a professional dancer and pilates instructor, but was noticing that lots of the women she worked with were dealing with lots of back pain.
  • Her story about of being a mom of two little kids and feeling lots of back pain herself, so she hit the books and started to figure out what could help her.
  • She talks about developing strength across the back line of the body — planks instead of sit-up and a focus on glutes and mid-back as some simple starting points.
  • Some of the mistakes we make when thinking about our pelvic floor muscles.
  • They talk about strength and more aerobic exercise.
