Pelvic Floor Workshop – Wednesday, July 4, 6-9 pm

May 31st, 2018 | By | Category: City News

Who should take this workshop?

  • Postnatal Mother’s
  • Athletes of all Specialties
  • Office workers
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Labourers and trades people
  • Pretty much anyone who has a pelvic floor

A healthy pelvic floor is more than squeezing what you think are the muscles involved in the elusive ‘Kegle’. Awakening and then stabilizing the pelvic floor is an imperative skill in gaining and maintaining functional movement in the body and preventing dysfunctional and compensatory movements that can cause referred pain such as:

  • Low back and SI joint pain or Siatic Symptoms
  • Bladder weakness and urgency issues
  • Digestive struggles and referred pain causing urgency or constipation
  • Sexual difficulties resulting in pain or avoidance

The pelvic floor, just like any muscle can be too weak and disengaged or it can become hyper engaged and therefore struggle to release. In both states this distress can result in detrimental health concerns and discomfort. The good news is everyone can benefit from learning how to better control this muscle group by becoming more in tune and aware of the sensations that lead to functional pelvic floor health.

This workshop will review the female pelvis and pelvic muscles through handouts and diagrams to help us all review and become more aware of the muscles/ physiology we are speaking of. We will then use this language and self awareness as we move though a very purposeful and deliberate yoga sequence that will help in the activation, release and reactivation of the pelvic floor and responding core muscles.

The workshop is designed to benefit all levels of yogi, brand new to yoga or advanced practitioners, spending time in specific poses to increase body awareness, coordination and strength of the pelvic floor, ultimately advancing your overall flexibility, both physically and emotionally.

This three hour workshop is $60.00
