About Hypopressives Canada

A full-body approach to Core and Pelvic Health

Our mission is to change how we approach core restoration and fitness in North America and spread the word about the benefits of Hypopressive® Exercise to both women and men. Our focus is to help guide you towards becoming a certified trainer or help you find a trainer in your area.

 

The HYPOPRESSIVE® method combines a unique breathing technique with varying poses. Initially developed as a non-surgical treatment for women with pelvic floor health issues, the HYPOPRESSIVE technique has evolved and broadened into a complete Core training system that benefits men and women of all ages and lifestyles.

Founded by Trista Zinn, Hypopressives® Canada provides information, education and training on the Hypopressive® method. Hypopressives® Canada is recognized by the International Hypopressives Council as a leading expert that has been teaching courses since 2013.

Meet Trista Zinn

Trista Zinn, Hypopressives Canada

Trista Zinn, is a personal trainer based in Toronto who specializes in pelvic floor health and core re-programming. She is Canada’s highest qualified and most experienced Trainer in the HYPOPRESSIVE® technique — the only one with Master Level Status — and is a Certified Course Instructor for Hypopressive® Training. She is also its biggest advocate.

After being diagnosed with Stage 2 prolapse, from which Trista was told there was little non-surgical chance of recovery, she became determined to find a non-invasive and less traditional treatment. This led her to HYPOPRESSIVE® exercise.

She sought out the world’s only English-speaking certifying instructor at the time, in Spain, where she was privately trained and received her Level 1 qualification in the HYPOPRESSIVE® Method. She was so impressed with this revolutionary approach to training and her own success in having eliminated any trace of her prolapse, that it sparked a series of travel destinations across Spain. Trista gradually advanced her qualifications from Advanced Level (Level 2) trainer,  Expert Level (Level 3) to a Master trainer that  includes the Wall series. With continued education she became Canada’s only course Instructor in the HYPOPRESSIVE® Method.
