It's not "normal" to have difficulty urinating.
It's not "normal" to have pain during sex.
It's not "normal" to wet your pants when you laugh, cough, or sneeze.
And it's definitely not normal to have organs descend into your vagina...
But it happens to women every day. The tragedy of pelvic floor dysfunction is that no one talks about it. Women don’t realize there is help available because they don’t know who to talk to when they struggle to pee or feel like they’ve lost control of their bowels.
If ignored, the symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can completely disrupt your life and lead to embarrassment and frustration.
We Don't Have To Live Like This
Imagine a life without panty liners.
Imagine being able to enjoy sex again, or feeling confident on the dance floor in a new pair of white pants.
Imagine trusting that your body is working with you, and not against you.

I know what it's like to suffer from Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
For most of my adult life, I have appeared healthy and fit to those around me. Working in the fitness industry as a trainer, instructor, and eventually as a CEO, I trained hard to keep my body in shape, but I was constantly experiencing abdominal pain and discomfort.
After a series of surgeries and the difficulties accompanying three pregnancies, I lived with constant back pain, urine leakage, and vaginal pressure.
I saw multiple doctors and specialists, and no one could find anything "wrong."
I'll never forget the day one doctor implied it was all in my head.
After years of helping women work with their bodies to achieve greater health, I knew that something could be done. So I studied, and asked questions, and became a certified expert in pelvic floor health. As the Director of Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation at the Female Pelvic Medicine Institute of Virginia, I saw first hand how our behavior impacts our health.
That’s why I developed a program that can help you work through Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and take back your life.
It's not a quick fix. It will take patience and dedication. But the benefits surpass strengthening these vital muscles. With optimal pelvic health, you’ll gain freedom and confidence to live the life you want.

“Like so many women, I thought a little leakage while exercising and laughing was completely normal after childbirth. Thanks to Mary Anne, I not only regained pelvic floor strength but learned how to sustain a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain my pelvic floor muscles and prevent "bathroom issues" as I get older. From a proper Kegel exercise to understanding how spine alignment is vital to core strength, balance and good pelvic floor health, Mary Anne uses her expertise as a fitness instructor and compassion from her own experiences to create a sensible health strategy that you can do on your own. ”Sarah P.
“I had excruciating pain for 8 years where no physician, chiropractor, acupuncturist, or physical therapist had alleviated my pain. I stumbled upon Mary Anne and she began to teach me corrective exercise and Pilates based methods which helped me. Don't get me wrong, I had to work hard to help correct my issue. But, here I am 8 months later with much less pain. I would say my pain level was a 15 before and now hangs at about a 2. I would highly recommend you visit Mary Anne for your personal evaluation! And she is sweet as pie as well!!!"”Debbie H.
