Dr. April Bolding, PT
Workshops, Presentations & Events
All that I teach and present is based on my 25+ years experience and training in Western medicine plus my 22 years of learning from women in pregnancy, childbirth, post-birth, loss, pelvic pain, trauma and surgery.
My workshops, presentations and work integrate science, the sacred, focused action, intuition, practical application and inspiration — all presented to uplift and help create much-needed healing and balance within us and for this planet.
Please be assured that in all of these workshops we will remain clothed, respectfully boundaried, and encourage each person to exercise informed consent/refusal as to how they participate. We honor diversity while strengthening our connection to each other.

Good use of humor, science and sharing in a relaxed, supportive environment.
I loved learning what positions I push best in. I have a better understanding of my anatomy and I could actually do the visualization to release my pelvic floor and make space in my birth canal. Why am I only learning this now (as I prepare for the birth of my second baby)?!
It felt like sacred space being with other mothers who are preparing themselves for birth in this way. You are an amazing teacher and healer!
