THE PELVIC FLOOR

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.
During this workshop, we discuss what the pelvic floor actually is and its’ main functions, and 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.
The issue of pelvic prolapse is also touched upon.
This workshop recording is 2hr 52min.
PELVIC GIRDLE PAIN (PGP)

During this workshop we discuss the symptoms that can occur with the different types of PGP, and how yoga asana and breathwork should be adapted in relation to this condition.
We also include some physical therapy based movement to help build strength in and around the joints of the pelvis and improve overall posture, to assist in reducing an excessive anterior pelvic tilt. This can take considerate amounts of weight away from specific pelvic joints, and allow body weight to be more evenly distributed.
This workshop recording is 2hr 11min. There are also 2 extra 30 min classes for PGP for you to download.
