99: Laura Bruner on Functional Fitness for Everyone


Welcome to the Peaceful Power Podcast with Laura Bruner today.



I discovered Laura Bruner through her podcast The Modern Mamas podcast. I then checked out her work on her blog and on Instagram and fell in love with what she was doing. She is a new mama who has a passion for teaching women how to properly train during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Along with being passionate about fitness she is also a fan of practical nutrition tips that we discuss on the show today.
