Unravelling the Myths of the Pelvic Floor

Ever thought of this?

- Should I engage the pelvic floor on an inhalation or exhalation? Why?
- Is it true that weak glutes can effect pelvic floor dysfunction?
- How do I teach pelvic floor exercises in class in a way that doesn´t feel embarrassing?
- Is a strong mula bandha equal to a strong pelvic floor? (Spoiler alert: no)

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 are

- Constipation
- 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 have! 

The workshop will be down to earth and fun!
