The pelvic floor is the foundation of our body that contributes to all movement. When our pelvic floor is off balance, then everything above it can be off balance too. It is an often misunderstood and underappreciated part of the body, unless one experiences any kind of pelvic floor dysfunction. A pelvic floor is ideally flexible, supple, and strong. It needs to be able to both fully relax and contract.
These therapeutic classes focus on the pelvic floor and muscles that surround and support the pelvic bowl.
3rd Tuesdays - Peaceful Pelvis
This will focus more on awareness, stretching, and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding muscles. This class will be appropriate for people with hypertonic pelvic floor concerns and pelvic pain.
4th Tuesdays- Peaceful (Powerful) Pelvis
This class will include awareness, stretching, stabilization, and strengthening of the pelvic floor, and muscles around the pelvis. This class would be appropriate for people who are ready to add strengthening exercises, or who have hypotonic floor concerns or pelvic bowl instability.
Benefits include increased blood circulation and increased vitality to the root of the body supporting the base of all movement.
These classes weave together breath work, mudras, body awareness, mindful yoga poses and essential oils.
