Rebuild Your Post-Baby Core So You Can Say Yes To Life
Imagine Saying YES to all the things you love.
Yes to playing in the yard with your kids.
Yes to that 3 mile hike.
Yes to that yoga, zumba, or weights class.
But Right Now, You Say “No” More Than You Say “Yes”.
Right now you spend way too much time struggling with the things you hear are “a normal part” of having a baby.
That abdominal separation that will not close.
That lingering back pain. Those hips that feel tired and achy. That general feeling of noodly-ness in your core.
Plain and simple, you spend a lot of your time feeling uncomfortable.
Living in discomfort changes you.
You start doubting yourself and your body when all the quick fixes don’t help.
You start opting out of life.
Sitting out of a game of tag at the park when, before, you’d always be the first to jump in.
You stop doing the activities that used to bring joy and meaning to your life. Running, hiking, yoga. Whatever your thing was.
You don’t trust your body to hold up.
You feel like a stranger in your own skin.
You’re far too young to have a body that feels this broken.
Here’s the thing…
NONE of this is a normal part of postpartum life!
You don’t have to shy away from life.
You can regain your strength and get back to the things you love.
Imagine How It Would Feel To:
Sounds good, right?
How do you build core strength that lets you do everything you love?
YOU CHANGE THE PATTERNS THAT CREATED YOUR WEAKNESS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
An online yoga program where women build lasting core strength so they can say ‘YES’ to life.
This proven, research-based, system is designed to eliminate the body patterns keeping you weak and create new patterns that make you strong.
This comes down to two things:
1. Eliminating the root cause of your core weakness, and
2. Training your core to work for you ALL DAY LONG.
All while enjoying all the benefits of yoga.
The best part? It takes less than 20 minutes a day.
Sound good?? It is!
You’ll walk away from this program ready to say YES to whatever adventure life throws your way.
After my second pregnancy, I had a three and a half finger diastasis and about 60 pounds to lose. But I didn’t feel I could work out until I healed my core. I needed to heal myself and so I jumped in and committed to 20 minutes a day for 8 weeks.
I’m healed! I had a one finger or less gap at the end of the program. I can do kickboxing, jump on a trampoline, laugh, and sneeze without peeing myself. I have better posture and stand up taller. I have lost 25 pounds of my 60 pound goal after starting this program about 3 months ago. I thought maybe I would have a weak core for a long time, but it really did not take much time at all.
I credit this program with helping me start to get my swagger back. This program is legit, is cheaper than physical therapy, and a hella lot better than a tummy tuck!Natalie Rondeau

Before I had my two children, I had been an avid runner—an activity I got a lot of joy out of. After having my children, I went from someone who could run 8-minute pace in my sleep, to someone who struggled to run 11-minute miles.
After my son (baby No. 2) was born, my stomach was basically a bag of Jell-O that was barely holding me upright. What was more disconcerting is I was trying every core regimen I could get my hands on, but nothing worked. In fact, some of the programs I tried even seemed to make things worse.
I cannot tell you how much this program transformed my body! This is the first program I have found where I feel like I actually regained significant core and pelvic floor strength.
I feel like a whole person again, as opposed to someone who is walking around with a gaping hole in my midsection.
I am happy to report that I have been able to start building up my running miles again, and I have noticed a HUGE difference in my running. I am beginning to hit some of the paces I ran before I had babies—something I had pretty much given up on! My core is so much stronger, and I’m recruiting my hamstrings in a way that I never have before—even before I had children.
I feel like taking the class precipitates a lifestyle change. Not only are you able to regain your core and pelvic floor strength and improve your diastasis recti, but you are able to make adjustments to your posture in your everyday life, which helps alleviate back and hip pain. Plus, as a bonus, I lost my “mom paunch” after completing this class. This was not a goal of mine because I did not think it was possible (nor did I really care if I ever lost it), but I am happy to say that it is gone.
I have literally told every mom I know about this program! It is worth the time and effort, and it’s worth every cent!
This class has taught me that with a little commitment, it is possible to get your body’s functionality back. You don’t have to struggle with pain or give up the things you love.

I was really struggling with the changes my body experienced after having two children. I started doing Yoga and Pilates to help tighten my core but nothing seemed to be working. When I heard about this course I thought it would be perfect, and it was!
This course was the first one I consistently made time for because I loved it! I felt all the benefits. Not just the calm and peace that come from Yoga, but the strength that was coming back to my core, and the knowledge that I know how to move in my everyday life in a way that is healing my body and not hurting it.Erika Marabella
I think you’ve got something really great here and was just what I needed. To be honest, I was pretty sure this program was going to be just another thing that I paid for and didn’t follow through on (I’ve spent way too much money trying to get myself to exercise). But I actually did it this time!
Your pacing was great, the goals you set were manageable (love that the videos are only 20 min), you were super supportive, and I really liked the accountability check-ins. I’m a psychologist and I don’t know what your training is, but you definitely have down a lot of elements of making behavior change and you execute and support them expertly.
Thank you so much for helping me feel capable and whole again.Amanda Schweizer

I’m Catherine Middlebrooks, yoga teacher, mom, wife, and founder of brb Yoga. I know exactly what it’s like to feel like your body is failing you.
After the birth of my daughter in 2012, I couldn’t wait to return to yoga and the active lifestyle that brought such joy and meaning to my life.
But no matter what I did my back hurt. My core and pelvic floor were so weak that I felt like a limp noodle. After eight months of exercise, I realized I was weaker and suffering more discomfort than immediately after the birth of my baby.
There had to be a better way.
So I switched into researcher mode, learning everything I could about abdominal strength, the pelvic floor, diastasis recti and the post-partum body. I spent hundreds of hours studying yoga anatomy, biomechanics, physical therapy, core rehabilitation and musculature, piecing together all the information to create a holistic picture.
I discovered that alignment can make or break the body’s ability to heal.
Think of your body like the tires on a car. When the tires are out of alignment, one side takes the brunt of the wear and tear.
Pregnancy stretches and weakens your connective tissues. If your body is out of alignment, movement and exercise place extra pressure on some parts of your core, leaving those weak spots vulnerable to injury. That’s why women like me find their abdominal separation or pain becomes worse, even months after birth.
Before you can safely rebuild your core strength, you must get your body back into alignment.
So I began playing on the mat, adjusting yoga poses to address muscular imbalance and my body’s compensations for the weakness in my core. I paid attention to the way I held myself as I moved through my day, to protect and rebuild my core muscles.
Before long, I was able to get back to the yoga practice that meant so much to me, with no more pain or discomfort. I not only healed my diastasis, but I felt stronger than ever, and because I was holding myself correctly, random longstanding aches and pains simply disappeared.
When the time came to have my second child, I felt confident because I knew how to move safely and I was able to restore my core quickly after birth.
Most importantly, I felt alive again.
I could say YES to all the adventures life has to offer, knowing that I could be active without fear of pain or injury.
I want that for you too.
That’s why I created Heal Your Core – to help Moms like you go from feeling broken and battered to living life out loud.
Life is short. You deserve to get your strength back, so you can bounce on the trampoline, run a marathon, dance all night at a Lady Gaga concert, get back to aerial silk work and do whatever makes your heart sing without fear of peeing yourself. (And yes, my students have done all these things).
You can be the Mom, the partner and the woman you want to be.
And it starts right here, right now.
Frequently Asked Questions
I've never done yoga before. Is this course suitable for beginners?
The short answer: YES!
The long answer:
I'm really busy. Can I do this on my own schedule?
I totally get it. I’m a busy mom too.
All the modules and videos are available 24/7. I make every module as quick as possible, getting you the info you need in the most concise manner.
And you get lifetime access. If you miss a week or get behind, you can return to the info whenever you like.
I had my baby years ago, but just found out I have a diastasis. Can this still help me?
A diastasis is caused by alignment patterns. Once we correct the alignment patterns, you allow your body to begin healing. This is the case whether you had your baby 3 months, 3 years, or 30 years ago.
At 2.5 years postpartum, I entered this course with a pretty good understanding of alignment and having already “closed my diastasis gap”. However, I still suffered from a lack of core strength and felt anxious about whether I was moving in ways that were helping or hurting me.
Catherine’s course solved a lot of the mystery for me. Through the live calls, I had the opportunity to literally get in front of her and receive assurance of how to do certain movements.
For me, the yoga in this program was key to healing my core. Only after making this connection back to my practice was I able to gain all the benefits of alignment adjustments and the strengthening that follows. Thank you Catherine. It felt right, right from the start and I will continue this practice joyfully.Kate Shoemaker
