At Taylored Training Physiotherapy and Taylored Training Fitness, we realize that when it comes to women’s health issues, there are many topics and questions that simply aren't talked about.

We want to open up the dialogue with a relaxed and fun evening, dedicated to learning all about our bodies and our health!

Do you pee when you cough, sneeze or workout?

Does it sometimes hurt to have sex?

Are you pregnant or a new mom and don't know what changes to expect with your body?

Are you unsure how to exercise and eat for your age and fitness goals?

Are you struggling with fat loss and feel like nothing is working?

Do you want to learn more about the latest research and developements in woman’s health?

If you answered yes to ANY of the above questions join us for a glass of wine and an incredible line-up of expert speakers!



Dr. Shawna Johnston, MD, FRCSC


Associate Professor
Obstetrics & Gynaecology Program
Queen’s University

Dr. Johnston is currently a full-time Associate Professor and attending staff member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology with a cross appointment to Urology at Queen’s university in Kingston, Ontario.

Dr. Johnston is a huge advocate that every woman leads a healthy, active lifestyle. She will be talking about the medical management of various types of pelvic floor dysfunctions as well as discussing the newest research and methods to get you feeling your best!



Cassie Dionne, PT, MSc(PT), BPHE

Lead Orthopaedics and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Taylored Training Physiotherapy

Cassie Dionne is the Lead Physiotherapist at Taylored Training Physiotherapy where she works with women of all ages to learn more about their pelvic health. Something that became very obvious to Cassie in the last few years is that pelvic floor dysfunctions are so incredibly common, but no one likes to discuss this important issue. Most women simply accept their symptoms (urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, or pelvic pain) and believe it will be their new normal. Cassie helps her patients learn that there are viable treatment options that are proven to be effective based on biofeedback treatment.

Cassie will specifically be speaking about different options for treating and managing pelvic pain, incontinence and prolapse including some lifestyle and behavioural modifications, and how physio can help!
