Pelvic Floor Therapy with Chiara Martini Movement
1707 Grant St, Vancouver, British Columbia V5L2Y6 7:45pm – 9pm

Coming to this event is an amazing way to safely ask those embarrassing questions without judgement. All of our bodies change over time, it is how we embrace and care for them as time goes on that matters most.
