In this class, Dr. Kailee Karst (DPT) and Heather Tobey (MS) will guide you through the four phases of your menstrual cycle, diving deep into the different hormones at play in each one. Kailee and Heather will describe how eating right and moving well can influence the health of your cycle, and how achieving the right nutrition and movement may vary during the different phases. Their goal is to help you understand how the choices you make around eating and exercising can influence how you feel throughout your cycle to help you be your happiest, healthiest, most comfortable self!
Dr. Kailee Karst found her passion for the field of physical therapy in clinical practice, helping people understand the subtleties of human movement and how to navigate through pain, in order to improve quality of life.
