Most yoga practitioners are familiar with the concept of “listening to your body.” However, the Pelvic Floor does not always get attention the way the rest of the body does. In this 2-hour trauma-informed workshop, Jeanna Lurie will teach you the basics about your pelvic floor. The first half will include lecture and discussion and the second half will introduce some basic ways of working in yoga postures for optimal pelvic floor health and core stability. Topics covered include:
Basic anatomy of “the Core”
Demystifying cultural myths about the Pelvic Floor
What is a healthy Pelvic Floor? Health issues that may be rooted in core instability
Over-toned (hypertonic) vs. under-toned (hypotonic) vs. combo: classifying your Pelvic Floor for your optimal yoga practice
What is Mula Bandha? Is it relevant to modern yoga practice?
Ways of practicing the poses you already know for optimal Pelvic Floor health and core stability
