These are all local businesses that I have made connections with in our community to help you realize the amazing services out there to help you be or not be super mom.

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sit in on a pilates class given by Susan, at Replenish Pilates. It was a semi-private class with two moms and their sweet baby boys.

Susan is passionate about serving women in all phases of motherhood; and believes movement is about more than developing a strong physical core. She believes it is about cultivating a deep inner strength, and she is honored to join women on this journey of reconnecting to how their body moves, is aligned and carries them throughout each day.
Susan began practicing Pilates in 2008 after the birth of her son. She was immediately inspired by the gentle flow of the movement, and deep mind-body connection she discovered. While working in the corporate world and navigating her role as a new mother, she used Pilates as the avenue to reconnect to her body and ease her mind. It was that feeling that inspired Susan to share her passion with others, and become a STOTT Pilates Certified Instructor and Licensed Mamalates Birth Recovery Instructor. She now supports women in a private and semi-private setting at Portland Family Health, and also offers a community class at Alma Education & Movement Space. She is truly honored to support women at these locations, as both are anchors in our Portland community for compassion, empowerment and warmth.
The time Susan spends with moms is tailored to support their specific needs at each session. She will meet you where you are both physically and emotionally because she understands the challenges of juggling motherhood while also taking strides for personal growth and healing. Following each session, Susan provides email follow-up that includes specific exercises to continue between sessions. Oh, and babies & children are welcome during private sessions at Portland Family Health...and non-crawling babes are welcome at the Alma community class!
