5th October 9.30am-12pm

The pelvic floor muscle group is the floor to the pelvis and as such needs to be able to adapt to the weight above it, and the mechanics above and below it.
After discussing what the pelvic floor actually is and its’ main functions, we will analyse and practice ways in which we can strengthen the pelvic floor both with static and dynamic movement and breathwork, as well as techniques to stretch and relax the muscle fibres.
We will also discuss what is pelvic prolapse and how can yoga help, as well as hinder, in the recovery process.
PELVIC GIRDLE PAIN (PGP) – What are the different types of PGP?

12th October 9.30am-12pm

We will discuss what the symptoms that can occur with the different types of PGP are, and how yoga asana and breathwork should be adapted in relation to this condition.

We will discuss the different types of PGP:

  • Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction
  • One-sided Sacro-iliac Syndrome
  • Double -sided Sacro-iliac Syndrome
  • Symphysioloysis (slipping on the symphysis)
  • Pelvic Girdle Syndrome – includes all three pelvic joints

    We will also include some physical therapy based movement to help build strength in and around the joints of the pelvis and improve overall posture, as reducing an excessive anterior pelvic tilt can take considerate amounts of weight away from specific pelvic joints, by allowing body weight to be more evenly distributed.
