In this week’s episode, I sit down with Rachel Katzman, co-founder of P.volve - a method at the intersection of fitness, physical therapy, and women’s health - to discover what it means to heal through movement. After a scoliosis diagnosis and long battle with Lyme disease, Rachel set out to reshape what it means to move your body. As we see in functional medicine, there is no “one-size-fits all” approach when it comes to health and the same can be said for movement and exercise. By tapping into your innate mind-body connection, exercise doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience and can in fact, be one of the most healing things you can do for both your physical and mental wellbeing. If you’ve ever felt disconnected or burnt out from exercise, check out this week’s episode so you can start moving with intention.

Rachel Katzman is the Co-Founder of P.volve and Co-Founder and former CEO of Cuvée Beauty, a hair care line she sold in 2019.

Katzman co-founded P.volve in 2017 after experiencing her own personal evolution through movement. After years of breaking down her body from high impact fitness methods while living with scoliosis, she was looking for a type of movement that not only gave her physical results she desired but would help her feel good too. Through functional movement, she learned the importance of understanding her body and how movement can both strengthen and heal. An entrepreneur at heart, Katzman turned the P.volve Method into a global brand, establishing it as a new science-backed standard in women’s health and fitness with a fierce determination to help women all over the world feel powerful in their minds and bodies throughout their entire life.

A rapidly growing start-up, P.volve is an omnichannel lifestyle brand with a global on-demand movement platform, a patented equipment line, three studio locations and franchise opportunities worldwide. Katzman finds her inspiration by the real stories of her members who have experienced their own evolutions, just as she has, and is known for speaking to them one-on-one each week. Day to day, she focuses on driving the creative vision of the company forward, growing the digital platform, and partnering with P.volve’s Clinical Advisory Board and training team to create programs and products to better women’s lives.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A look into Rachel’s tear-jerking journey through lyme disease and how she was able to navigate and find a healing connection from within
