Pelvic Floor Workshop: Demystifying “Down There”
May 2, 2021
with Leslie Howard
A healthy pelvic floor is more than doing Kegels. Proper work of strengthening and stabilizing the pelvic floor helps to create the correct foundation of each movement in the body. It is a basic tool to avoid loss of energy from this important area. A strong pelvic floor helps keep the pelvic and abdominal organs healthy as we age.
- lumbar spinal problems
- sacroiliac, hip or sciatic pain
- bladder weakness
- digestive, menstrual and sexual difficulties
This area can be too gripped, or too weak or both. You will learn how to distinguish the three layers of the pelvic floor and how to soften and strengthen these areas.
This workshop will begin with an anatomic overview including descriptions, drawings, handouts, and identification of the pelvic floor muscles. Afterward, we will explore a series of specific exercises for self-discovery, including both physical poses and breath work exercises to increase the flexibility, strength, and coordination of each of the pelvic functions.
Sunday, May 2nd, 2021 from 12:30-4:30PM.
$100, or $90 when you register on or before April 17th, 2021.
