This workshop aims to unravel some of the myths
surrounding pelvic floor health as it relates to the
yoga world especially.
Pelvic floor dysfunction will effect 80% of the
population within their lifetime (yes that many!) And it's hardly
spoken about, let alone understood.
Some common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction
- Period pains
- Leaking wee when coughing or laughing
We will explore how to work with different problems and how they
can affect the rest of the body and a person's practice.
Especially useful to yoga teachers and exercise therapists but
open to everyone - this is knowledge everyone should
The workshop will be down to earth and fun!
