About Jya

Jya Plavin is a Public Health Practitioner, Certified Pre- and Postnatal Coach, Peri/Menopause Coach, and Personal Trainer offering safe, body-positive fitness coaching to build strength and resiliency from pregnancy, to postpartum, to menopause and beyond. 

After having a child herself, Jya began noticing a common story — nearly every mother she talked to felt like her body was weak, fragile, and broken. Many experienced chronic back pain, pelvic plain, incontinence and diastasis recti during pregnancy and for months, years, even decades postpartum. Hearing these stories was a call to action.  

As she approached her 40s, Jya found similar disparities, lack of resources, cultural assumptions, and lack of general understanding about perimenopause and menopause. So naturally, she dove into more education to support folks (and herself!) throughout the menopause transition.
