Pelvic Floor Yoga
Restore Your Root
Enhance your pelvic health and restore vitality to your root with Pelvic Floor Yoga. Explore how mindful awareness, breathing techniques, and gentle movement can improve your connection to your core and pelvic floor and enhance your life. Review basic anatomy of the pelvis and pelvic floor musculature and incorporate Yoga postures to relax, tone, and mindfully strengthen the area to maintain a stable and supple pelvic floor.
The pelvic floor plays an important role in bladder, bowel, reproduction and sexual function, and supports standing balance, hip function, breathing and more. The pelvic floor is also intimately connected to the feet, jaw and mouth.
Pelvic Floor Yoga is for anyone looking to gain more awareness, insight and connection with their pelvis and bring healing to pain and discomfort. Through breathing, visualization, meditation, postures and mindful movement techniques, learn to tone and relax the pelvic floor muscles.
If you have experienced child birth, pregnancy, menopause, surgical intervention, pelvic pain, or peeing when ‘sneezing’, Pelvic Floor Yoga will give you more knowledge and tools to restore your core.
