What to expect
Yoga classes here meet your body where it is, and you'll never be asked to do extreme poses. With so many modifications given in each class, it's easy to find something that works for you.
There is a strong emphasis on keeping a neutral pelvis in order to evenly work the muscles "down there." If you are a regular yogi, you've seen the postures before. HOWEVER, it's the subtle cues on how to move your tailbone and sacrum that make all the difference to your pelvic floor.
We start with learning how to breathe properly and move on from there. You can enjoy a full body workout knowing the instructor has a plan on how to keep your muscles safe.
Pelvic Floor Yoga Styles
The pelvic floor exercises in our classes are subtly modified, standard yoga poses.
The poses in this style of yoga are held for a time to give the body, including the pelvic floor, time to settle into the postures and stretch all the right places. Don't worry about getting bored, the poses are typically only held for about six breaths.
This style of yoga focuses on tying breath to motion. The movements are not intense, but this style allows you to breathe all the way down to the pelvic floor. As you'll learn on this site, the breath is REALLY important to the health of your pelvic floor.
Okay, pilates is not technically yoga, but the movements offer some great pelvic floor exercises. It increases the intensity of the classes while offering extra movements to build tone and strength throughout the entire body.
1. Grounding: Focus your attention on your body and breath.
2. Asanas: These are the pelvic floor exercises you've been looking for on this site. Follow a series of poses that have been modified with your pelvic health in mind. All postures are cued for stretching and strengthening, and are either tied to motion or held for about six breaths.
3. Relaxation: Find stillness, feel how the asanas portion of the class impacted the muscles of your body. Take this time to relax and breathe.
