Pelvic floor yoga is a holistic approach to healing. Seeing the body as a ‘whole’ mind, body, and breath connection. I help clients differentiate between muscle layers in the pelvic floor. Pelvic floor fitness is essential for normal bladder and sexual function. Pelvic floor muscle weakness can be associated with urinary incontinence, vaginal wall weakness, lower back pain and problems with sexual appreciation.

Anyone can benefit from this type of exercise. Strengthening or learning to relax this integral part of the body, what I believe is your true core, helps one learn to deepen your breath, create softness in your neck and shoulders, create relaxation in your hips and back, increase sexual response, and have a deeper sense of presence in the body.
