Meet Natalie Hernandez, Registered Physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates Instructor 👋🏼
Mama to two adorable kids and wife to an ultra-patient IT consultant :blush: I have over 18 years of clinical experience in Sports and orthopaedic physiotherapy and more recently I’ve become certified in Clinical Pilates and in Pelvic Health.
My interest in Pelvic Health started in my 1st pregnancy in 2015. Having experienced some firsthand challenges pre and post-pregnancy, I explored and learned ways to make my pregnancy journey meaningful and successful. Education has been a powerful tool for me, both in preparation for pregnancy, in pregnancy and in my postpartum recovery.
It is my passion to educate and empower clients. It allows your recovery to be less limited by unfounded fears (both in thought and movement!) and to focus on the gains (outcomes?) and goals of the visit. I am an advocate for human movement and mechanics! Both in my day-to-day life and clinical practice, I am always guided with the belief that everyone has a voice or journey to be shared and heard.
I value lifelong learning, and my additional course work includes: Calibrate Pilates (Reformer and Mat), Pelvic Health Level 1, Level 2 Orthopedic Levels in Manual Therapy, ROST Therapy training for Sacro-Iliac Pain, Power Over Prolapse course, K-Taping Pro Course.
Personally, I value faith, family and integrity. I enjoy “park hopping” with my kids, unplanned picnics with the family, fabulous farmer’s market finds and discovering great hole in the wall restaurants or small cafes! I look forward to meeting you!
