Michelle Lyons – MISCP, RPT, CNT – Michelle Lyons Celebrate Muliebrity
Leading Women’s Health Physiotherapist + Global Educator – Ireland
About Michelle: I have over twenty years of experience as a Chartered Physiotherapist. I am on the teaching & course development faculty of Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute in the U.S. and was an item writer for the PRPC certification exam. I am also a lecturer for the Pelvic Obstetric & Gynaecological Physiotherapy Association in the U.K. on their pregnancy/MSK courses and will be Clinical Lead on their new advanced pelvic floor course. I blog and teach online (available mid 2015) for Medbridge Education and have collaborated with both the Integrative Pelvic Health Institute and Burrell Education on a number of live and online women’s health educational programmes. In 2013 I co-founded the Women’s Health Physiotherapy group, which now has over 1900 members from all over the world; an abstract looking at the role of the group/social media in promoting women’s health was accepted for WCPT in 2015.
Michelle also serves as the Clinical Consultant for all the Holistic Core Restore® Programmes and is involved in the day-to-day support for the Coaches and the programme in general.
“I have been a long time friend of and collaborator with Jenny Burrell, whom I hold in the highest professional regard, so when she asked me to review Holistic Core Restore®, I gladly agreed. On review, I was completely overcome with the width, depth and breadth of this programme. It follows all the latest evidence based guidelines when it comes to restoring pelvic health but in an engaging, whole body functional way. When I had the chance to participate in a live class (led by Jenny herself!) it confirmed all that I had felt on reading the material. The exercises are deceptively simple but engage all the meaningful muscles of the inner core in a dynamic but pelvic floor safe way. This is an exercise programme I can wholeheartedly recommend – my only complaint, which I am sure will be echoed by many other women’s health physio’s, is that there aren’t enough HCR coaches out there -yet! This training is genuinely transformative in how we teach women to love moving their bodies again“.
Jessica Drummond, MPT, CCN, CHC, the Founder and CEO of the Integrative Women’s Health Institute – USA
About Jessica: Jessica is passionate about caring for and empowering women who struggle with women’s and pelvic health conditions. She is equally passionate about educating and supporting clinicians in confidently and safely using integrative tools to transform women’s and pelvic healthcare. Having over a decade of experience as a women’s and pelvic physical therapist plus owning a private women’s health clinical nutrition and coaching practice gives her a unique perspective on the integrative, conservative options for pelvic pain management. Jessica was educated at the University of Virginia, Emory University, The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and Duke Integrative Medicine. She is currently a doctoral student in clinical nutrition at Maryland University of Integrative Health.
” The Holistic Core Restore® Program from Jenny Burrell is absolutely best in class. Speaking from my background as a pelvic floor physiotherapy and nutrition expert, I can say with full confidence that with this program you will have everything you need to provide safe and effective holistic fitness for women in the perinatal years (and far beyond) to eliminate incontinence, reduce the risk for prolapse, and support overall core stability. What I like best about this program is that Jenny has been testing and using this work for years. It’s been tested for effectiveness with thousands of clients, and she takes into consideration so many factors that can come up in this population. As a fitness or physiotherapy professional, once you have this training, you will have the tools that you need to expertly and confidently work with women with Diastasis Recti, women who want to burn fat, and even with women who want to lift heavy weights or participate in Cross Fit. That’s no easy task to do safely in women with pelvic health issues, and Jenny has you covered. And, importantly, this is work that the women in your community NEED! Pelvic healthy issues are so often brushed under the rug by traditional fitness experts and physicians, and women are being forced to the sidelines because of embarrassment or pain. You are just the person to bring this work to the women in your community, confidently, safely, and effectively. If you want to grow your fitness or physiotherapy practice into the perinatal, postpartum, or postmenopausal markets and have everything you need to build a successful business, join The Holistic Core Restore® Program, get the education and Jenny’s energetic wisdom for sharing this work with the women who so desperately need it“.

“Jenny Burrell is fantastic, clever, creative, intuitive and always asking ‘why?’ As a fellow leader in Post-Natal recovery and someone who is passionate about anything that pushes the boundaries in this field, I love her new HCR programme. Linking the HCR Team with my The Mummy Mot Practioners (Specialist Post Natal Physiotherapists) was a no-brainer as it’s a natural fit. It provides an exciting and excellent opportunity to help mums have an optimal Post Natal Recovery wherever they live in the UK. I have now met many of her incredibly well-trained Coaches and love the functional movement and integrated breath work that’d the foundation of the programme. Jenny’s energy inspires us all to go beyond our comfort zone! Mums need this programme and her HRC Coaches!”
