Resources & Recommendations
It can be difficult to know what programs out there are worth investing in, so here are a few programs we love at Modern Intimacy.
Courtney V. Core & Pelvic Floor Exercise Program
Pelvic floor expert, fitness trainer, and Poosh contributor Courtney V developed her online Core & Pelvic Floor Program after fixing her own pelvic floor issues and those of so many others. Living a life with bladder or bowel issues (such as peeing when you sneeze or jump), sexual dysfunction or dissatisfaction, low back and hip pain, organ prolapse, and more can alter the way you live your life. Many feel hopeless, shameful, and embarrassed. This powerful program holds the key to transform your life and reduce or eliminate the physical, mental, and emotional issues that surround these all too common issues.
