Leslie Hopkins

I am a fully certified Stott Pilates Instructor with over 18 years experience teaching people how to move well. During the last 6 years I have been working primarily in the field of Women's Pelvic Health, and have a number of certifications related to this field of study. About 6 years ago I went through menopause and noticed changes in my body, more specifically, I became incontinent and found out that I had pelvic prolapse :( as a fitness professional I was devastated. However necessity, being the mother of invention, lead me to research and study, and I found that pelvic floor disorders (such incontinence & prolapse) are epidemic and happen for a variety of reasons. I have resolved my issues, my mission is to help other women restore their pelvic health naturally. I specialize in Pelvic Floor Exercise Therapy and a member of the Women's Health Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, where I receive ongoing training and support.
