Hi there! I'm Vanessa.
I'm a movement coach. A mom of 2. A life-long learner of all things body, movement and exercise.
I may also be someone who has gotten the occasional second take in restaurants for talking perhaps a little TOO enthusiastically about pelvic floor health.
I specialize in a whole body approach to pelvic floor and core health, and bring my own unique mix of warmth, perceptiveness, and fun to my collaborative work with clients. I also work with clients who may be dealing with recurring aches and pains or injuries and who want to explore a functional approach to movement and exercise that combines body awareness, mobility, and strength.
I teach in-person private sessions, group workshops, and class series in Central and Northern VT, as well as one-on-one Skype sessions for those not local to Vermont. Online, you can find my Move Well Mama prenatal movement program as part of Liz Wolfe’s Babymaking and Beyond!
I love walks, hiking, reading, oceans and lakes, practicing my squat, and listening to and sharing stories. I live in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont with my husband, sculptor Torin Porter, and our two kids.
