Leslie Hopkins

I am a fully certified Stott Pilates Instructor with over 18 years experience teaching people how to move well. About 6 years ago I went through menopause and noticed changes in my body, more specifically I was incontinent and also found out that I had pelvic prolapse :( and as a fitness professional I was devastated! However "necessity being the mother of invention" lead me to research and study and I found out that pelvic floor disorders such incontinence and prolapse are epidemic and happen for a variety of reasons. I have resolved my issues and my mission is to help other women restore their pelvic health naturally. I began teaching online in 2006 with a self-study course called Laugh Without Leaking. I now support women with weekly classes that combine pilates based exercises and scientifically based pelvic floor and core training techniques that will help resolve issues like incontinence and prolapse AND train the mind/body connection to restore your potential for moving well for life.

I am passionate about providing women with exercises that help us move well for life, and to give you the information you may need to resolve issues such as incontinence & prolapse naturally.

I like to keep classes fun and fresh, so I use a few props like light Hand Weights, TheraBand & Pilates Ball. Props add variety to basic exercises, they also increase challenge and provide support. These props are inexpensive and very versatile, you can email me for details:

Online courses are part of our 'new normal' as we all navigate this world pandemic. And I am honoured to be supporting women in moving well with The Confident Core Method, my latest course offering.
