Come and join us on Saturday June 27, 2020 as we explore the
dynamics of the pelvic floor! This, too often unexplored
region of the body, is a source of stability for the organs of
elimination and reproduction, but also for the pelvis. So much of
our musculoskeletal health stems from good function in this
This workshop will examine the anatomy and function of the pelvic floor including discussion about accessory muscles. We will explore the importance of good bladder and bowel health and how best to keep it running most effectively.
In addition, participants will be shown different yoga poses to demonstrate how the pelvic floor needs to fully contract and relax while being able to practice flows and poses to best to achieve this. Learn how your Yoga practice can encourage a healthy pelvic floor. And how a healthy, responsive pelvic floor can enhance your practice!
We will end the work shop with an Q&A session, where participants can discuss any questions or concerns that they may have. This workshop is held in conjunction with SMY's 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. So expect some awesome anatomy discussion and some in depth application.
