Yoga for the Pelvic Floor With Leslie Howard
Saturday & Sunday, February 2-3, 12:30-3:30pm
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.
This 2-day, 6 hour workshop begins with an anatomic overview including descriptions, drawings, handouts, and identification of the pelvic floor muscles. 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.
