It is estimated that 1 in 3 women have some type of pelvic floor dysfunction and yet the awareness and actions that help transcend this treatable issue have yet to become mainstream. Even in yoga classes, cues for mula banda are rare and, when given, are often not explained in detail. Perhaps there's a bit of discomfort around discussing pelvic muscle anatomy in a group class, or it may be confusion around recruiting the proper muscles in the pelvic floor exercises. Whatever the case, it is definitely cultural in America to keep silent about pelvic dysfunction but the conversation of yoga is the perfect place to expand such a dialogue.

In this workshop we will discuss the following topics:
— Broadening awareness of posture, breath, and capacity from the muladhara chakra (root chakra) invoking the energy of transformation
— Risk factors for developing a pelvic floor disorder (PFDs)
— Types of PFDs and their symptoms
— Anatomy of the pelvic floor musculature
— The job of the pelvic floor muscles and its effect on the abdominals.
— Demystify Kegels and explain strength, tightness, weakness, and tone
— Teach mula banda practice (the contraction and lifting of the Pelvic Floor Muscle) in several poses
— Explain why engaging mula banda isn’t for everyone
— When pelvic floor muscle training isn’t enough, what other options are there?
— Returning to awareness: The art of relaxing and releasing the pelvic floor

We will leave some time at the end for questions.

Only $30 for this important workshop!
