Yoga And Your Pelvic Floor: A Workshop for Women

A healthy pelvic floor is crucial for optimum functioning of the body. Problems that are related to the health of the pelvic floor can include: pelvic pain, sexual pain, incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. We will address questions such as:

  • Where exactly are the pelvic floor muscles?
  • What do I use them for everyday?
  • Why is it important for me to know?
  • How can a yoga practice promote healthy functioning of the pelvic floor?

The workshop will cover the anatomy, structure, and function of the pelvic floor using different models and images to understand its relation to everyday actions and basic yoga postures. We will learn how to effectively engage and release the pelvic floor, and we will practice activation and relaxation in various postures. We will integrate practices to address incontinence, prolapse, hypotonicity and hypertonicity. All women ages 18 – 99 are encouraged to come, yoga beginners are welcome. Our yoga practice will promote pelvic floor and core strength, flexibility, suppleness, and pelvic health. Included in the workshops is a detailed booklet with photos and descriptions of the poses.
