Yoga and Your Pelvic Floor: A Workshop for Women
Saturday, April 6, 2019
2:00 – 4:30 pm
Marlene McGrath, Instructor
A healthy pelvic floor is crucial for optimum functioning of the body. Problems related to the health of the pelvic floor can include: pelvic pain or weakness, incontinence, or pelvic organ prolapse. The yoga practice presented in this workshop will promote pelvic floor and core strength, flexibility, suppleness, and pelvic health awareness.
The workshop will cover the basic anatomy, structure, and function of the pelvic floor using different models and images to understand its relation to everyday actions and basic yoga postures. We will learn how to locate, effectively engage, and release the pelvic floor muscles. A series of yoga postures will be taught to practice awareness of the pelvic floor. All women ages 18 – 99 are encouraged to attend. Beginners are welcome. An instructional booklet is included with the workshop.
