Breath & Flow is a special edition of the BIRTHFIT Postpartum Series that spans four weekly 90 minute classes.

This series is designed for women that have had a baby in the last four to twelve weeks. (If you are less than 6 week postpartum, the instructor suggests getting clearance from your doctor).

  • We’ll start with breath work and evolve into full body functional motor patterns.
  • You will establish a solid core foundation, wake up your posterior chain, and enhance your posture through safe, effective movements that transfer to any activity in your daily life.
  • Come ready to move and connect with your breath and body again.
  • Non-mobile babies welcome.

Katy Pitcairn will facilitate this 4-week series. Katy is the owner of Crossfit Huntingdon Valley since 2013 and specializes in postpartum and pregnancy strength and conditioning. A dedicated mom who is passionate about nutritional quality, quantity, and timing, Katy has cooked her way through countless Paleo cookbooks in pursuit of feeding her children nourishing foods. Katy is passionate about helping guide women through the motherhood transition through BIRTHFIT’s four pillars.

As an athlete, Katy has completed four full marathons and a Half Ironman triathlon—and even got engaged while running the Philadelphia Marathon when her now-husband Bryan proposed at the finish line. She started CrossFit after having kids. “I found Powerlifting through Crossfit and never looked back,” she says. “I love to support (mostly) women and help them gain confidence that carries over to their personal lives.”

When not coaching in the gym, Katy is a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist Assistant at Action Physical Therapy. She graduated from Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, PA in 2018 and is a Herman and Wallace Certified Pelvic Floor Therapist.

SPACE is LIMITED and REGISTRATION is REQUIRED. The $100 fee covers all 4 90-minute workshops.

Workshops will run from 10:00 – 11:30 am on Mondays, May 6th, May 13th, May 20th and June 3rd.

All classes, workshops and Support Groups are held in our third-floor Education Room. Please enter the building through the rear door at the top of the ramp off the parking lot and head upstairs.
