One-on-one specialized care with me can be expensive (upwards of $600 a month for 4 sessions or $150-$200 per session!) and is limited due to my schedule and the amount of patients that need physical therapy. This online program is structured to have everything you could need from the comfort of your home and contains the amount of information I provide patients over multiple sessions of therapy (6-8 weeks!). This all-in-one program allows me to reach more bellies and bodies around the world. My goal is to make this as affordable as possible so everybody can relieve pain, prevent injuries, enhance body awareness, and optimize their overall health. That's why this online program is on only for... $399!

Patient Testimonial


"As a yoga teacher I was used to being able to regularly teach and take yoga classes until I became injured to the point where I couldn't even do a simple child's pose. Kelly was able to quickly assess my injury accurately and correct my body so that I began to heal during my first session with her. I feel stronger than ever and I am back at my daily yoga practice. Whenever I have a session with Kelly, it leaves me feeling strong, energized and happy. Seeing Kelly is the best part of my week. An additional benefit I have discovered while working with Kelly is that she specializes in pre and postnatal care. I feel that she has helped improve my fertility through her treatment and I am more confident about the task of having a baby, as I know Kelly will be there to help support me all the way through that journey. I am forever grateful for Kelly, she is so talented, knowledgeable and has such a wonderful bright healing light!"

Frequently Asked Questions


Is this safe to perform during pregnancy?

It depends! Typically, its safe to continue your normal exercise routine during pregnancy or start new exercise to enhance your pregnancy but its important to check with your doctor first to makes sure you have no restrictions! This program is structured for pregnant and postpartum Mamas but you may need to modify (especially during the third trimester!)

Is this a recurrent payment or one-time payment? 

There are 2 payment options! There is a one-time payment that provides complete access to The Belly Whisperer® Method online program! You will have access to all the material at once! The monthly payment plan will allow partial access to The Belly Whisperer® Method which will be sequentially released each month (preferred method). Each month, the next step of the online program will be added for access online. Once all payments have been completed, you will have complete access to The Belly Whisperer® Method!

How long does the course last?

It depends! There is no set guidelines when it comes to your belly and body! This program gives you the ability to follow a 5 step program. You typically will spend 1-2 weeks on each step so you may complete the course in 4 weeks or 8 weeks depending on your needs. The goal is to incorporate these exercises into your everday life but that looks different for everyone! I will be showing you how to spend at least 5-15 minutes a day on incorporating these exercises into your day for improving your quality of life! If you go with the monthly payment plan, this program will take about 4 months to complete!

What if I am newly postpartum or post-surgery (1-6 weeks)?

Don't worry! Its critical to start gentle exercise such as breathing and focus on the importance of posture and body mechanics postpartum and post-surgery! You may have some restrictions given by your MD so its important to follow along with those in mind. You may need to spend the first 1-4 or 1-6 weeks on belly breathing and belly posture until cleared by MD for exercise but you can start watching the videos immediate ly to help prevent injury! Its recommended to go with the monthly payment plan.

What if I have injuries that make exercise difficult?

Also a perfect time for you to begin. You will always choose exercises that fit your needs at the time. There are plenty of modules and exercises we cover that will decrease pain, reduce injury and are very easy on the body.

What if I need help with the exercises and/or structuring my mobility routine?

That's why I offer online and in-person appointments! If you complete the entire program but feel you need more of a one-on-one specialized program structured for your body and life......
