Come learn more about simple functional training, corrective exercises, therapeutic massage as well as breathing techniques
that will empower you to better understand what you can do to get your pelvic floor back on track!
Module 1 of 4: Anatomy & a greater discussion
- Let’s have an open discussion about our lady parts and what is going on down there! We will chat about common dysfunctions and how they affect us.
- We will take a look at the anatomy of our pelvic floor and see how it is part of the greater whole
- I will share info on some daily life habits that we need to ditch and/or embrace. Practicing these modifications will be your assigned homework
- We will do a general postural assessment
- I will offer a list of professionals in the area that may become part of your team in order to reach your ultimate goal of pelvic floor health.
Module 2 of 4: The link to breath and core
The pelvic floor is just one part of the whole.
- We will look at the link between poor breathing habits and pelvic floor issues. Specific breath techniques will be practiced and will be part of your homework
- As much as the Fitness and Pilates industry tried to do a good job at teaching us good core control…. well…. it missed the mark. I will teach you what is considered a more pelvic floor friendly and actually overall more effective core engagement.
- I will introduce you to self-massage specific to improving tissue health. NO…. we are not just going to massage down there. You will soon understand that the pelvic floor is just one part of the team. We will take care of the whole body rather than just the hole in the body.
Module 3 of 4: Functional Movement
- To create a responsive, pain-free pelvic floor we must take a whole body approach
- We will look at functional movements that will help re-set any imbalances in the body that may be the root cause of the pelvic floor issues or are an end result of pelvic floor or pelvic issues. Basically the chicken or the egg thing
- We will practice some mobility, corrective and therapeutic exercises as well as more advanced self-massage techniques.
Module 4 of 4: Putting it together for a deeper healing
- We will briefly review all that we have learned to date and create a plan of action
- The movement session will include all of the techniques we have learned
- By module 4 you will have a clear grasp of the concept of pelvic floor engagement and especially pelvic floor release/relaxation.
- We will delve into the concept of mindset and energetics to tap into a deeper layer of healing
- Tracy Wilson, Sex and intimacy coach, will speak to us about how her type of coaching can help you enjoy intimacy again.
