Yoga Therapy for the Pelvic Floor: 4 week series

With Renee Zambo, yoga therapist

Reconnect with the physical, energetic, and psycho-emotional attributes of your pelvic floor. Our pelvis is responsible for many functions, from shaping our musculoskeletal framework, to housing our reproductive organs, as well as parts of the digestive and eliminatory systems. The pelvis is also an immensely impactful energy center in the Yogic tradition, and acutely connected to our emotional state.

The pelvis and pelvic floor is the seat of our second chakra, named Svadhisthana, or “one’s own dwelling place”. There are many events in life that can alter our awareness and connection to this sacred and powerful seat in our bodies. Each week in this four week series will focus on a different aspect of the pelvis and pelvic floor to which we can reconnect.

Topics will include proper pelvic alignment and pelvic floor function in movements and postures. Yoga Therapy techniques such as a self assessment tool will heighten body awareness and alignment. Tools for diaphragmatic and pelvic floor breathing for proper engagement and release will be explored through gentle movement and props. In weeks three and four, the energetic and emotional aspects of our pelvis and pelvic floor will be woven into restorative postures and meditations on self nourishment and well-being.

This workshop is open to all who are interested in general health and greater function of the pelvic floor. A five minute phone conversation with Renee prior to the workshop series is included.
