Getting back your strength and returning to the exercise routine you loved before you had a baby is a challenge. There is not a lot of guidance provided. I created this class to be bridge that gap. It is the perfect way to restore the strength of your core and pelvic floor muscles so that you can return to your favorite exercise routine safely and pain-free.

Dr. Whitney M. Ellsworth, DPT created the RISE method based on her clinical experience as a pelvic floor Physical Therapist and her personal experience with pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis recti.

R.I.S.E stands for :
Release- release the overactive muscles
Isolate-isolate the weak muscle 
Strengthen-strengthen weak muscles
& Evolve- learn to use your new-found strength with everyday movement.

Whitney has identified 3 common movement impairments among her clients with pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis (separation of the abdominal wall). She combined her extensive training in Movement System Impairment from Washington University in St. Louis Program in PT, personal experience with pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis and experience treating over 1,000 women in the clinic to establish the R.I.S.E. method. It is a unique way of treating diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction. The RISE Method encompasses the entire body focusing on shoulder, spine, hip, core, and pelvic floor restoration.

Come and restore your strength, reduce pain, improve flexibility, and return to physical activity confidently. This class is targeted to ;

  • Reduce incontinence,

  • Decrease low back, pelvic and hip pain

  • Heal Diastasis Recti

  • Improve common muscular restriction patterns found in Moms

  • Improve common movement impairments associated with diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction

Once postpartum, always postpartum- It is never too late to restore your core & pelvic floor. Even if you are many years postpartum this class can help.


“I HIGHLY recommend finding your way to Whitney's RISE Method class. So pleased with my results. I can't believe my diastasis went from 8 inches to 2.5 inches.” 

—Sarah, RISE Method Session 1
