Featured inWhy Pelvic Exercises Was Founded

Many women worldwide can’t access Women’s Health Physiotherapy information.

Pelvic Exercises was founded by Michelle Kenway to help women access to quality health professional information about exercising safely and effectively with pelvic floor problems. She set about making this information freely available to women through her news media articles, online videos and her internationally acclaimed pelvic floor safe exercise program Inside Out

The popularity of Michelle’s articles and videos has helped to develop a worldwide community of like-minded exercising women, exercise instructors and health professionals who recognize the importance of pelvic floor safe exercise for women.
