Yoga for Pelvic Health
A Yoga Therapy informed class
When: Saturday, 12:30 PM (1.5 hrs (90 min))
Room: COM: Queenswood Arbutus
Curious what’s behind Yoga for Pelvic Health? This Yoga Therapy informed class encourages easeful embodied learning supporting you to tune in with the feedback of body and mind.
You will be guided through yoga practices that create awareness of the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments and bony structure of the pelvic bowl and the organs that have their home there. These need to work in synergy for optimal pelvic health. You will find out that pelvic health is more than pelvic floor strengthening.
The guided practice of pelvic-diaphragmatic breathing supports relaxing muscles of the pelvis, back, front and chest. You will then strengthen these muscles during safe core work involving the Core-4 or Inner Unit (multifidus, transverse abdominals, diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles).
The standing poses that follow add some fun challenges building on the techniques you learned already in this class. The practice will conclude with hip and back care and a guided final relaxation allowing you to leave tension behind inviting love as medicine for the often unspoken area of the pelvis.
