About the Instructor

Kim Vopni, is a Personal Trainer, an author, a passionate promoter of pelvic floor physiotherapy and mother of 2 boys. She also trained as a doula which had her known as The Fitness Doula for many years but as her work broadened to helping women at all life's stages she is now known as The Vagina Coach.

She also trained in a variety of diastasis recti abdominis (DRA) techniques and recognized the strong correlation it has to pelvic floor dysfunction. In 2009 she created the Prepare To Push™ program which is now available in several cities across Canada as a workshop and was also published as a book in 2015.

After educating herself on proactive pelvic floor wellness during her pregnancies she became the Canadian distributor for the EPI-NO which heightened her passion for increasing the awareness on this ‘taboo’ subject. Her main mission is to see pelvic floor physiotherapy covered by the government and considered standard care for all women.
