In this dynamic workshop, we will build the foundation for integrating your pelvic floor muscles into your yoga practice, from the point of view of a pelvic health physiotherapist. Through discussion and embodied movement, you will become acquainted with your pelvic floor muscles and how these muscles are synergistic with the rest of your inner core. You will gain the knowledge and skills to find a healthy balance of these muscles during your daily activities. You will learn how your pelvic floor can help to guide you towards a safe and pain-free yoga practice. Special consideration will be given to how trauma, the pelvic floor, and movement are interrelated.
Although this workshop includes embodied movement, this will be gentle; participants of all abilities are invited to join in!
Date: June 9th
Time: 1:00 to 4:00pm
