4/20 Pelvic Floor Health + Yoga

April 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This Workshop is Open to Students of All Levels

Debunk Common Myths and Connect Through Practice

Often, we don’t pay attention to certain parts of our body until something goes wrong, and we may even assume that certain changes are normal or inevitable with aging. This couldn’t be more true than with ‘down there’ – our pelvic floor, sexual health, and bathroom habits can feel like dirty secrets we keep to ourselves. A high percentage of people with pelvic floor symptoms never seek the support they need, and I’m here to help change this.
Truth is, our pelvic floor and deep core health depends on the way we breathe, how we sit, stand and move, and even how well we manage stress and emotions. Leaking and pain are common, but not normal – and much of the time can be remedied with functional practice and awareness.
If you’re reading this, you have a pelvic floor, and learning some basic practices can help you feel strong, confident and continent.
Attend this workshop if you experience any of the following:
  • urinary incontinence (accidental leaking)
  • urinary frequency or urgency
  • pelvic pain or recurring pelvic discomfort
  • recurring low back pain
  • constipation
  • disconnection, numbness or absence of sensation
  • confusion about whether to kegel or not to kegel
Yoga teachers wanting to understand mula bhanda more clearly also may want to attend!
Participants will learn evidence-based information, and experience simple practices to connect with and enhance pelvic health. Men and women of all ages welcome to attend. No practice experience required, as our experiential activities will be adaptive and gentle.
